Yeah, here I stand,
Holding on to memories,
A box full of everything you meant to me.
And it opens up and I pull one out,
And I slowly start to read.
I know you're gone,
And even though it hurts to see,
I carry on like it doesn't mean a thing,
But I know deep down inside I slowly bleed.

Yeah, but here I stand, against the odds,
Against the fights and against the fall,
Against the winds and against the grain.
You take it all, just leave my name,
'Cause after this, it's not the same,
I pull a match out and start the flame,
I can't think of us and what we became,
So I close my eyes and I look away.

I see through you like a ghost,
Behind my footsteps in shadows!
When God knows this is as far as I can go!
This place is bleeding me dry,
I tried to make things right,
Another sleepless night!

When morning comes,
I hope you're somewhere else.
It's better than waking up,
And lying to ourselves.

You cut me down and I cut you back,
We are the same inside (we are the same inside)!

With my back against the wall,
Against the fact that I'll never fall,
And you deal with that.
When you cut me back, you cut me deep,
And I'll never show, so you'll never see
That I carry your scars with me.

When morning comes,
I hope you're somewhere else.
It's better than waking up,
And lying to ourselves.
It's better than waking up,
(It makes you reconsider everything)
It's better than waking up.
(It makes you reconsider everything)

I wish I was empty, wish I was someone else.
I've changed so much, I don't know myself!
My shadow, I've got you figured out,
There's nowhere for you now,
I see through you like a ghost!
I see through you like a ghost!

When morning comes,
I hope you're somewhere else.
It's better than waking up,
And lying to ourselves.
It's better than waking up,
(It makes you reconsider everything)
It's better than waking up.
(It makes you reconsider everything)

When morning comes,
(It makes you reconsider everything)
When morning comes,
(It makes you reconsider everything)
