"Chasing Lights" as written by Chris Braide and Christine Wroldsen....
Go on, go on, go on
Go on, go on, go on
Go on, go on, go on
Go on, go on, go on

I've been doing this my way, your way, our way, I can't make it work
When all I have is not enough
I've been doing all I can, my plan, your plan and all I get is hurt
This game we're playing has to stop

I've got you stuck in my head
And all you do is breaking me, I can't continue taking this
I've tried my best to understand
But I cannot make sense of you, I've got to take a stand and baby

I don't wanna waste another day
I don't wanna live my life this way
I'm tired, I just wanna lie back down and
I don't wanna waste another night
I don't wanna keep on chasing lights
So go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, bye, bye

I remember I met you, let you get your way in everything
You took complete control of me
I remember you lying, crying, trying to get away with it
But now I know 'cause now I see

I believed all that you said
I never questioned any lies and never opened up my eyes
And no your words got me mislead
But I am standing, I'm alive, I never had you on my side

I don't wanna waste another day
I don't wanna live my life this way
I'm tired, I just wanna lie back down and
I don't wanna waste another night
I don't wanna keep on chasing lights
So go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, bye, bye

Bye, bye, oh

I've been doing this my way, your way, our way, it doesn't work

I don't wanna waste another day
I don't wanna live my life this way
I'm tired, I just wanna lie back down and
I don't wanna waste another night
I don't wanna keep on chasing lights
So go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, bye, bye

I don't wanna waste another day
I don't wanna live my life this way
I'm tired, I just wanna lie back down and
I don't wanna waste another night
I don't wanna keep on chasing lights
So go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, bye, bye

Oh bye, bye
Go on, go on, go on
Go on, go on, go on
Go on, go on, go on
Go on, go on, go on
Bye, bye

    General CommentPretty song. Controlling relationship: the person in the song, riddled with naivety, has tried to resolve the situation in every way possible but now can't go on anymore the way they are. It's about finally grasping the insight to see that you could be missing out on your life, by being in your current state of "chasing lights" in an unhappy relationship.

    General CommentI love this song. Its one of my favorite songs of all time. To me its a bout a relationship taht they've tried to make work but just can't and now instead of 'Chasing Lights' its time to say 'Go on, go on, go on, bye bye'
