The plane is in its final descent
And I'm up here holding my breath
The space in my chest decompressed
And your hands are around my neck
Telling me everything's going to be ok

You placed a bandage over my chest
And reminded me the pain was temporary
I burn, I beg, I suffer at your hands.
Shoot at me while you've got the chance
I'm holding up strong behind bulletproof glass
...Well are you listening?

The dream is over,
The sun is dead
But I'm finding the strength to stand.
This bandage off,
This reservoir overflowing,
I'm trying to find a safe place to land.

And now I stand alone tonight,
In a burnt out crater of what we were
With each passing moment I look to the sky
And yearn for what we should've been
I burn, I beg, I crumble at the thought of you,
We just never had the room to make it true.

In this sorrowful surrender,
I'm taken down and I'm burnt to ember
For love that I cannot remember
Has singed me to the bone.

And with blackened eyes and restless mind
I try to figure out these great skies
With wings we've grown for us to fly
There's something sweeter than you and I...
