  • Baby
    I used to watch your flowers grow
    Now it's raining and all your petals turns to stone
    I've been praying
    I turn around and see my rose
    But you faded
    You left me now it's time to go

    That's why I'm long gone, long gone
    You need to let me fly alone
    That's why I'm long gone, long gone
    Maybe it's too late our time is gone
    That's why I'm long gone
    You need to let me fly alone
    That's why I'm long gone, long gone
    Maybe it's too late our time is gone

    Baby, I think you've got your timing wrong
    Hating, exploring this while we're riding on
    And it's crazy to think that I could be reborn
    If you saved me now it's too late and you'll never know
    You're like a diamond and I'm like glass
    Like oil and water we always clash
    Sometimes my confessions are hard for me
    I'll tell you now I'm setting you free

    That's why I'm long gone, long gone
    You need to let me fly alone
    That's why I'm long gone, long gone
    Maybe it's too late our time is gone
    That's why I'm long gone
    You need to let me fly alone
    That's why I'm long gone, long gone
    Maybe it's too late our time is gone

    With broken wings
    I can't fly
    I'm gonna need you to save me, angel of mine
    With broken wings (With broken wings)
    I can't fly (I can't fly)
    I'm gonna need you to save me, angel of mine
    With broken wings (With broken wings)
    I can't fly (I can't fly)
    I'm gonna need you to save me, angel of mine
    With broken wings (With broken wings)
    I can't fly (I can't fly)
    I'm gonna need you to save me, angel of mine

    That's why I'm long gone, long gone
    You need to let me fly alone
    That's why I'm long gone, long gone
    Maybe it's too late our time is gone
    That's why I'm long gone
    You need to let me fly alone (I can't fly)
    That's why I'm long gone, long gone (I can't fly)
    You need to let me fly alone
