I was never good enough
I listened to their lies
I crucified myself
I always, but now I realize
That I'm the only one
Who can mend my ways

How did I come so far
My everlasting flame, my dying star

I was my own worst enemy
I was blinded by my shame
A hopeless masquerade
Never ending
The guilty down inside
Was a blessing in disguise to mend my ways

How did I come so far
My everlasting flame, my dying star

I can mend my ways
Now, I'm flying, hanging on the wind
Following the night
And ride
Leave gravity behind
Following the light
Finally I can breathe

I...
I bury all my doubts
I've learned to live without
The fear of endless scars
In this star
I can mend my ways

How did I come so far
My everlasting flame, my dying star
I can mend my ways
How did I come so far
My everlasting flame, my dying star
My dying star

    General CommentAfter "I crucified myself" i think it's actually "Like always" not "I always"

    Anyway I think this is about someone that had been on the verge of emotionally and mentally destroying themselves but suddenly realised what they were doing and pulled themselves back out of the darkness

    General CommentI think this song is about how someone overcame low self-esteem.

    Anyway are those lyrics correct? It doesn't sound like she's singing "how did I come so far".
