This is why I refuse to let go
This is why I refuse to back down

You watch the dawn break but do you see the sun?

Would you notice if I let go?
Would you notice if I backed down?

You watch the dawn break but you don't see the sun
Why don't you try keeping those eyes open?

Cos if you saw the anger in my eyes
Maybe this would be less of a surprise
And if time heals you, I will make it stop
I will pull the hands from every single clock
If you want answers, I will give them to you
Open up your eyes to something new
Show you how to face the pain and
Failing that I'll take the road again

Hundreds of lovers fall wide of the mark
They just can't express that change of heart

This is why I could never let go
This is why I could never back down

We had to make an example of someone

Red eyes always burn the brightest
Red eyes always bring the surprises

We had to make an example of someone
Can you honestly say no?

Cos if you saw the anger in my eyes
Maybe this would be less of a surprise
And if time heals you, I will make it stop
I will pull the hands from every single clock
If you want answers, I will give them to you
Open up your eyes to something new
Show you how to face the pain and
Failing that I'll take the road again

Hundreds of lovers fall wide of the mark
They just can't express that change of heart
