The hours are passing
The sand in the glass is
Falling down like rain
The seasons are changing
The chords on the page are spelling out your name
But we wrote the book before we read it
We dove headfirst into a crowded heaven
And the seats are all sold out
I don't want to drag your heart around
I don't want to burn this candle down
And though it's killing me
I've gotta set you free
The theatre is empty
The ushers are sweeping
all that's left behind
The backstage is buzzing
The houselights are humming
And the floors are drenched in wine
But you grabbed my arm
To steal me away
From the friends I love and the scene that I made
And the plane is taking off
I don't want to drag your heart around
I don't want to burn this candle down
And though it's killing me
I've gotta set you free
We're lying down for the last time
Cause I gotta leave before the end of the night
This isn't a breakup
It's only a wake up
Tomorrow we'll move on
We won't be together
But we'll always remember
The meaning of this song
I don't want to drag your heart around
I don't want to burn this candle down
And though it's killing me
I've gotta set you free
I hope that you can see
That I've gotta set you free
