I counted down
Just like you did before you said
It's too short
How long I said
It's too short
Who's to blame
A golden plate
If it's true I'm born to remain star across
Seems he couldn't be respectable, discreet

And if I found that what she said was true
What she said about you
What she said assume
I should have known
When you said that you chose me

All that I want
Is to see some true reflecting
To learn somehow, and to be strong somehow
In this state of mind
Hop in

And if I found out what she said was true
What she said about you
What she said assume
I should have known
When you said that you chose me

Stay strong
Separate
Be born
Separate
Be brave
Separate
You'll grow
Separate
Be brave
Separate
Stay..

And if I found that what she said was true
What she said about you
What she said assume
I should have known
When you said that you chose me
