Headlights in your eyes
Oh darling there are angels by your side
When you’ve lived a life in a building stood on lies
The truth will tear it down

You’re choking in your sleep
From all those promises you couldn’t keep
And this could be the match that could burn you to the ground
Deaths rattling your dreams

Your nights spent shouting at the stars and moon
You never could sleep tight with them watching over you
You never were a lonely lover holding on to me
And now you’re all alone

Yeah you can’t stray from what you are
You’re the closest thing to hell I’ve seen so far
Yeah you can’t stray from what you are
You’re the closest thing to hell I’ve seen so far

Asleep by the riverbank your heart swells
Your lungs are alive but you’re living in hell
Dreaming only ever gave you an excuse to care for what you didn’t need

Oh well I never cared if you were there
But I loved you more than I could say
But I was scared of the repercussions I would face if you had left
But I guess it doesn’t matter now, it doesn’t matter now

Your nights spent shouting at the stars and moon
I never could sleep tight with them watching over you
Oh but you never were a lonely lover holding on to me
And now you’re all alone

Yeah you can’t stray from what you are
You’re the closest thing to hell I’ve seen so far
Yeah you can’t stray from what you are
You’re the closest thing to hell I’ve seen so far

Yeah you can’t stray from what you are
You’re the closest thing to hell I’ve seen so far
Yeah you can’t stray from what you are
You’re the closest thing to hell I’ve seen so far


Yeah you can’t stray from what you are
You’re the closest thing to hell I’ve seen so far
Yeah you can’t stray from what you are
You’re the closest thing to hell I’ve seen so far
