  • [Verse 1: Jamie Scott]
    Light 'em up, light 'em up
    Tell me where you are, tell me where you are
    The summer nights, the bright lights
    And the shooting stars, they break my heart

    [Pre-Chorus 1: Jamie Scott]
    I'm calling you now, but you're not picking up
    Your shadows so close if you are still in love
    Then light a match, light a match
    Baby, in the dark, show me where you are

    [Chorus: Jamie Scott]
    Oh, love
    How I miss you every single day when I see you on those streets
    Oh, love
    Tell me there's a river I can swim that will bring you back to me
    'Cause I don't know how to love someone else
    I don't know how to forget your face
    Oh, love
    God, I miss you every single day and now you're so far away

    [Post-Chorus: Jamie Scott]
    So far away

    [Verse 2: Romy Dya]
    It's breaking me, I'm losing you
    We were far from perfect, but we were worth it
    Too many fights, and we cried, but never said we're sorry
    Stop saying you love me

    [Pre-Chorus 2: Romy Dya]
    You're calling me now, but I can't pick up
    Your shadow's too close, and I'm still in love
    The summer's over now, but somehow, it still breaks my heart
    We could have had the stars, oh

    [Chorus: Jamie Scott & Romy Dya]
    Oh, love
    How I miss you every single day when I see you on those streets
    Oh, love
    Tell me there's a river I can swim that will bring you back to me
    'Cause I don't know how to love someone else
    I don't know how to forget your face
    Oh, love
    God, I miss you every single day and now you're so far away

    [Post-Chorus: Romy Dya & Jamie Scott]
    So far away
    So far away
    Oh, so far away
    So far away

    [Outro: Romy Dya]
    Oh, love
    How I miss you every single day when I see you on those streets
    Oh, love
    Tell me there's a river I can swim that will bring you back to me
    'Cause I don't know how to love someone else
    I don't know how to forget your face
    Oh, love
    God, I miss you every single day when you're so far away
