There's nothing left now that doesn't come from suffering
Victims of time,
Were defined by our history
Forever lost,
And now I don't know who the fuck I have become
Where has my life gone?

I'm holding on to a life,
I'll never get back
It's too hard to let go
I'm on the right train but the wrong tracks
Trying not to derail

Nothing is like it was before
I know not who I am anymore
Chasing something that's behind me
When will I be set free?

So what is left of this life that's in front of me?
Is there a future when you only see in memories?
When every loss,
Every beauty just reminds you of the past
How can you just let go?

I'm holding on to a life,
I'll never get back
It's too hard to let go
I'm on the right train but the wrong tracks
Trying not to derail

Nothing is like it was before
I know not who I am anymore
Chasing something that's behind me
When will I be set free?

Broken promises left to mend
Burning the candle at both ends
No light to find my way back home
But I don't even know where "home" is anymore
The sinking ship has washed ashore

This misery has got to end
What's done is done
The past is a strange place

Look,
Look at me now,
Just a fool with everything,
But yet he's still so hollow
Look,
Look at us now,
No lights just struggling to find our way back home

I'm holding on to a life
I'll never get back
It's too hard to let go
I'm on the right train but the wrong tracks
Trying not to derail

Nothing is like it was before
I know not who I am anymore
Chasing something that's behind me
When will I be set free?

Broken promises left to mend
Burning the candle at both ends
No light to find my way back home
Cause' I don't know where "home" is
And without you, I'm hopeless
