We're burning like the embers from our fire that we built last night
The city lies in ruins now, all because of you and I.
And I hope to God this heart attack disappears before I do.
Broken like your promises, I try my best to just pull through.

So stop where you are, put your hands in the air
There's no time for your questions and I know it's not fair
But I hope that one day, you will see her again
Calm down, breathe slowly.. the best that you can.

The reflection I have come to know so dearly doesn't recognize me
I've been trying hard to catch myself, but it's only getting harder to breathe
I look outside to a world that waits so eagerly to let me in.
Careful not to make a sound, I step outside and let it begin.

So stop where you are, put your hands in the air
There's no time for your questions and I know it's not fair
But I hope that one day, you will see her again
Calm down, breathe slowly.. the best that you can.

Like a house of cards you fall
Like the temperature you fall
Like the empire we built in the backseat of my car
You fall

So stop where you are, put your hands in the air
There's no time for your questions and I know it's not fair
But I hope that one day, you will see her again
Calm down, breathe slowly.. the best that you can.

We're all here for a reason
Mostly blurred by popular demand and the latest trend
You only live once, so wipe the slate clean.
Start something new.
Do something different.
I'm only singing to myself a solemn mystery
Waiting for something. Someone, some opportunity.
Right before my eyes.
This is my reason.
