  • You trembled like you'd seen a ghost
    And I gave in
    I lack the things you need the most
    You said, "Where have you been?"
    You wasted all that sweetness to run and hide
    I wonder why
    I remind you of the days you poured your heart into
    But you never tried
    I've fallen from grace
    Took a blow to my face
    I've loved and I've lost
    I've loved and I've lost

    Explosions on the day you wake up
    Needing somebody and you've learned
    It's okay to be afraid
    But it will never be the same
    It will never be the same

    You left my soul bleeding in the dark
    So you could be king, ah
    The rules you set are still untold to me
    And I've lost my faith in everything
    The nights you could cope
    Your intentions were gold
    But the mountains will shake
    I need to know I can still make

    Explosions on the day you wake up
    Needing somebody and you've learned
    It's okay to be afraid
    But it will never be the same

    And as the floods move in
    And your body starts to sink
    I was the last thing on your mind
    I know you better than you think
    'Cause it's simple, darling, I gave you a warning
    Now everything you own is falling from the sky in pieces
    So watch them fall with you, in slow motion
    I pray that you will find peace of mind
    And I'll find you another time
    I'll love you, another time

    Explosions on the day you wake up
    Needing somebody and you've learned
    It's okay to be afraid
    But it will never be the same Writer/s: Elena Jane Goulding, John Frederik Fortis
