Take cover
Signs don't show
You drove me off the road

But you let go
Cos your hope is gone
And every question fades away

It's a shame you don't know what you're running from
Would your bones have to break and your lights turn off
Would it take the end of time to hear you heart's false start?

You know this is your biggest mistake
What a waste, what a waste, what a waste
And of all the things you never explained
You know this is your biggest mistake

You tread water
Fighting for the air in your lungs
Move
Move closer
Maybe you can right all your wrongs

But you let go
Cos your hope is gone
And every answer fades away

IT's a shame you don't know what you're running from
Would your bones have to break and your lights turn off
Would it take the end of time to hear your hearts false start?

Wipe the mud stains from the face stop the engine
Stop pretending
Wipe the mud spray from your face stop the engine,
Stop pretending, that you're still breathing
