There are eight billion people in this world
Eight billion lives are changing
Never felt so alone

Would you consider me inspite of this?
I'm always the one who loses
Would you make me better?

How, how, how will we make this work?
Why do you have to be so far?
It's all clear now I'm gonna keep you
Like flowing water into forever

That look is all I need to get by
Like living in some illusion
I never felt so alive

I know that there will be flaws around us
The silly wars that we'll be fighting
Yes, I'll be fighting

How, how, how will we make this work?
Why do you have to be so far?
It's all clear now I'm gonna keep you
Like flowing water into forever

It's all clear now I'm gonna keep you
Like flowing water into forever
Into forever now
I'll be the one who holds you dear

There are eight billion people in this world
Eight billions live are changing
And you're the one I need.

    General CommentThis is my fave hale song.
    It's about having a long distance relationship in my opinion.

    There are eight billion people in this world
    Eight billions live are changing
    And you're the one I need.


    I love that line. I miss you Stefan.

    General CommentThe Ballad Of talks about being in a long distance relationship. At first the guy is saying that he always gets hurt in the relationships that he's been in and he's sort of doubting the long distance relationship because the girl is faraway but on the 2nd verse up to the last part, he realizes that love is more important than distance.
