lyrics

This must be how it ends
Feels like light years from the place where we began this
Time and space apart
Sleeping underneath the light of different stars now

And maybe someday I might just try
To justify why I went out of my mind
Terrified at the thought of living without you
And I won't be able to

Restart it's back to basics now
And I'll be brave and strong just like you showed me how
But add a little kindness too
I'll mix the best parts that are me with the best parts that were you

And maybe someday I might just try
To justify why I went out of my mind
Terrified at the thought of living without you
And I won't be able to

And now I hope that you're all right and
That we'll be friends after a while again
But if we both should die
Without having met another time I
I hope you realize the reasons why
It took so long to let resentment lie
Maybe you'll think twice
About leaving without telling me goodbye

Now after all this time
I've built my life on second chances, hope, and opened eyes
Survived and what a nice surprise
After everything that we went through
It all turned out just fine
Ah oh oh

Sleepless nights will not define my life
Make me cry in cars for hours
You no longer have that power

Love expands to fill the void at hand
Loneliness got me into this
But coming back has taught me that there's

No strength without sadness
No courage without fear
No freedom without forgiveness
I've learned after all these years

And maybe someday I might
Try to remember why
I thought that I needed you
And I just won't be able to
