Deep inside

Echoes of a thought I try to hide

I try to hide

Nights so cold

Days get shorter and there is no hold

There‘s no hold


Stay here

Stay with me


Can‘t you see

All the changes around you and me

You and me

Another time

With no one there to tell you wrong from right

Wrong from right


Stay here

Stay with me


Years from now, will you answer my call?

Or will you do as you‘re told and forget it all?

Will your stars feel the same? The sound of your name?

Will you stand up proud? Will you cover the shame?


Years from now, will you still feel the thrill?

Or lose yourself in dreams of what could have been?

Will you justify yourself while standing in line?

Will you cry out at night?

Will you wish back this time?


Stay here

Stay with me

    My InterpretationIt's a song about time passing and people changing.

    "Nineteen Years Later" is the title of the very last chapter of the Harry Potter saga. In it, JK Rowling gives an outline of what happened to the heroes after the final events of the main story. How everyone got to live a happy und meaningful life.

    This song depicts an alternate turn of events. It's a song about how there's not always happy endings in life. About people losing their idealism and their hope ('will you still feel the thrill?' / 'lose yourself in dreams of what could have been?'), and about breaking up.
