  • Don't talk, let me think it over
    How we gonna fix this?
    How we gonna undo all the pain?
    Tell me, is it even worth it?
    Looking for a straight line
    Taking back the time we can't replace

    All the crossed wires,
    Just making us tired
    Is it too late to bring us back to life?

    When I close my eyes and try to sleep
    I fall apart, I find it hard to breathe
    You're the reason, the only reason
    Even though my dizzy head is numb,
    I swear my heart is never giving up
    You're the reason, the only reason

    I feel you burning under my skin
    I swear I see you shining
    Brighter than the flame inside your eyes

    Bitter words spoken,
    Everything broken
    It's never too late to bring us back to life

    When I close my eyes and try to sleep
    I fall apart, I find it hard to breathe
    You're the reason, the only reason
    Even though my dizzy head is numb,
    I swear my heart is never giving up
    You're the reason, the only reason

    Oh, oh, oh, only reason, the only reason
    Oh, oh, oh, only reason, the only reason

    Don't talk, let me think it over
    How we gonna fix this?
    How we gonna undo all the pain?

    When I close my eyes and try to sleep
    I fall apart, I find it hard to breathe
    You're the reason, the only reason
    Even though my dizzy head is numb,
    I swear my heart is never giving up
    You're the reason, the only reason

    When I close my eyes and try to sleep
    I fall apart, I find it hard to breathe
    You're the reason, the only reason
    Even though my dizzy head is numb,
    I swear my heart is never giving up
    You're the reason, the only reason Writer/s: Michael Ford Busbee, Michael Gordon Clifford, Stephen Robson
