And when you left this town
You had to change your name
You had to change your face
To hide away the pain
But you run from part to part (?)
And take on (?) right back to the start

You said we weren't safe
And vanished without a trace
It's hard to chase a bird
When you don't have any wings
And you'll fly straight into a dawn
You'll come back once safely past apart (?)

You say you're alone
but my hopes are open wide
You're looking for something
That you won't ever find
Now it's raining so hard
I can't see my own tears
You're giving me reason
To put trust in my fears
Now im chasing a ghost
Cause there ain't no real thing
There's only a carcass
Except i love you [...] (?)


[...] and it's better that way

    General Commenti think it's this:

    you say you're alone
    but my arms are open wide
    youre looking for something that you wont ever find
    now its raining so hard
    i cant see my own tears
    youre giving me reasons to put trust in my fears
    now im chasing a ghost
    cause there aint no real thing
    theres only a carcass where our love used to stay
    i'm beginning to think that it's better that way
