"The Bell" as written by Klara Maria Soederberg and Johanna Kajsa Soederberg....
Don't place your bets on me
I'm tired and I'm lonely
With nothing to offer you
Nothing to offer you

The pavement stares gray and cold
Our lives are a story told
Coming to an ending
It's coming to an ending

How could I turn around?
Face the sound of the bell that shines?
Ring it out, trim it out
To drag me back down

But I'm not coming home

Been out here for so long
The road just stretches on
Till I stop pretending
Till I stop pretending

But the world is an empty frame
And now you are just a name
I'll keep it that way
It's staying that way

How could I turn around?
Face the sound of the bell that shines?
Ring it out, trim it out
To drag me back down

But I'm not coming home

I tried hard to be brave
I tried hard not to be afraid
But trying wasn't enough

I tried hard to be brave
I tried hard not to be afraid
But trying wasn't enough

I'm sorry, I'm sorry
Can you hear the bell?
Can you hear the bell?
The bell, the bell

Can you hear the bell?
Can you hear the bell?
The bell, the bell

From the rust that lies deep in it's throat
I hear solemn tones
The danger, the absent floors
In the silence of night he lets me know

That I'm not coming home

    Don't place your bets on me
    I'm tired and I'm only
    With nothing to offer you
    Nothing to offer you

    The pavement stares gray and cold
    Our lives are a story told
    Coming to an ending
    It's coming to an ending

    How could I turn around?
    Face the sound of the bell that chimes
    Ring it out, trim it out
    To drag me back down

    But I'm not coming home

    Been out here for so long
    The road just stretches on
    Till I stop pretending
    Till I stop pretending

    But the world is an empty frame
    And now you are just a name
    I'll keep it that way
    It's staying that way

    How could I turn around
    Face the sound of the bell that chimes
    Ring it out, trim it out
    To drag me back down

    But I'm not coming home

    I tried hard to be brave
    I tried hard not to be afraid
    But trying wasn't enough

    I tried hard to be brave
    I tried hard not to be afraid
    But trying wasn't enough

    I'm sorry, I'm sorry
    Can you hear the bell
    Can you hear the bell
    The bell, the bell

    Can you hear the bell
    Can you hear the bell
    The bell, the bell

    From the rust that lies deep in it's throat
    I hear solemn monotone tones
    The danger, the ebbs and the flows
    In the silence of night he lets me know

    That I'm not coming home
