Baby
I used to watch your flowers grow
Now it's raining and all your petals turns to stone
I've been praying
I turn around and see my rose
But you faded
You left me now it's time to go

You're like a diamond and I'm like glass
Like oil and water we always clash
Sometimes my confessions are hard for me
I'll tell you now I'm setting you free

That's why I'm long gone, long gone
You need to let me fly alone (X3)
That's why I'm long gone, long gone
It may be to late our time is done

Baby
I think you've got your timing wrong
Hating
Exploring this while we're riding on
And it's crazy to think that I could be reborn
If you saved me
Now it's to late and you'll never know

You're like a diamond and I'm like glass
Like oil and water we always clash
Sometimes my confessions are hard for me
I'll tell you now I'm setting you free

That's why I'm long gone, long gone
You need to let me fly alone (X3)
That's why I'm long gone, long gone
It may be to late our time is done

With broken wings (with broken wings)
I can't fly (I can't fly)
I'm gonna need you to save me, angel of mine
With broken wings (with broken wings)
I can't fly (I can't fly)
I'm gonna need you to save me, angel of mine

That's why I'm long gone, long gone
You need to let me fly alone (X3)
That's why I'm long gone, long gone
It may be to late our time is done

You're like a diamond and I'm like glass
Like oil and water we always clash
Sometimes my confessions are hard for me
I'll tell you now I'm setting you free
