Nina Nesbitt – Statues lyrics
You're just a statue of a boy I used to know
You're just a tattoo of the words that we once spoke
You're the dry river where the love used to flow
But it still runs through me, with you it had to go

But if you take this back
I'll be waiting to come alive, come alive
If you turn your back
I'll be waiting to fly

But you're like the falling leaves
Whilst I'm still the oak tree
'Cause you're the one to leave
Now I'm falling asleep
You're like the broken keys
Whilst I'm just a broken home
'Cause as I breathe in deep
You're looking at me
Like a statue of the boy I used to know

You're just a lighter with no fuel to light our flames
You know I'd fight for this but you wouldn't do the same
'Cause you're just a diary with a blank and empty page
But the story we wrote, I can’t quite erase

But if you take this back
I'll be waiting to come alive, come alive
If you turn your back
I'll be waiting to fly

But you're like the falling leaves
Whilst I'm still the oak tree
'Cause you're the one that leaves
Now I'm falling asleep
You're like the broken keys
Whilst I'm just a broken home
'Cause as I breathe in deep
You're looking at me
Like a statue of the boy I used to know

I'll watch you fall to the ground
'Cause there's just stone in your eyes now
We had it all 'til we were found
We're just living these lies now

'Cause you're like the falling leaves
Whilst I'm still the oak tree
'Cause you're the one to leave
Now I'm falling asleep
'Cause you're like the broken keys
Whilst I'm just a broken home
And I breathe in deep
As I watch you leave
You're the statue of the boy I used to know
