When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones,
And I will try to fix you,

High up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

    This song is really nice. And even though it's not their own, I think it's a very nice cover. Much better than Coldplay's

    Someone sang this to me, and right then I thought we'd stay together forever. Too bad I trusted his words, and this song. Looking at the bright side, maybe there's someone else more worthy to sing this to me...and hopefully, fix me and make me feel just fine again...

    How i feel about "fix me" is that someone is telling the person who broke them to fix them and make them whole again and not be alone forever without their love...

    In the middle of your despair, luck of hope, and sadness, there is still someone who believes in you and that person will give you strength and will show the light to you!
