lyrics

I'm standing, confused
In the middle of an empty room
I've been waiting for so long
For flowers that never bloomed
Feels like we never shut the door
Unfinished work, inner gloom
Those memories will remain (forever)
See? I'm still staring at the moon (remembering your smile)

I thought the fire in your eyes
had vanished in the sky
but now it's burning bright
I thought this fire had died
under the deluge of time
but now it's burning bright
brighter than ever

And if what you say is true
And you promise me I'm done waiting for you
And if I do come back to you
I don't want to be a number two (again)

I cannot move on
I'm stuck between two states of mind
I'm tired, exhausted, my feet are burnt
By the fervid sands of time
It's now that you show up? Now that I'm dried up
Was the answer really that hard to find?
I had to overcome my weaknesses
Just to know that you were not blind

So please tell me there is more up ahead
I don't want that to be another «last time»

I thought the fire in your eyes
had vanished in the sky
but now it's burning bright
I thought this fire had die
under the deluge of time
but now it's burning bright
brighter than ever

And if what you say is true
And you promise me I'm done waiting for you
And if I do come back to you
I don't want to be a number two (again)


I've been through this before… twice now
There's no strength left inside of me
These are the last miles I can walk; I'm almost there
But… will you be there for me?
I don't want to be an «I» anymore
Now I want to be a «we»
I need your help to get over this impasse
And maybe then we can be happy
Maybe
