This time seems to never change
The more I give and the less I earn
Five years since I moved into Rome
Where an empire was born and a god died nearly alone

the city lights are the only sun I know
you feel better if they tell you you're different
you are unique but there's something you should know
you are not enough for this city not enough for this world

If I'm not good enough just tell me who deserves to live this life alone
this life alone

This pain seems to never end
The more I love and the more it hurts
Five years to make my dreams come real
And just one second to erase 'em all
Those empty streets were the only land I knew
I felt better if they told me I was different
Was I unique was there something I should know
Was I enough for this city and enough for this world

If I'm not good enough just tell me who deserves to live this life alone
Well if it's not enough just tell me who deserves to walk this path alone
This life alone

This pain seems to never end
the more it hurts the less I pretend
to be here to be alive still
If I can't face this I wonder who ever will
The city lights are the only sun I know
I feel better now I know that I'm different

If I'm not good enough just tell me who deserves to live this life alone
Well if it's not enough just tell me who deserves to walk this path alone
Well if it's not enough
