Anywhere But Here

Album: Anywhere But Here (2009)
  • Tonight is the one thing left
    And I haven't said it yet, I'm falling
    And the writings on the wall

    Today was misery
    And I just can't believe this happened
    And I finally broke down (finally broke down)
    She held onto my heart
    But now my only star is falling
    And it's burning to the ground

    Now I'm crying out

    Secret love, my escape
    Take me far, far away
    Secret love, are you there
    Will you answer my prayer
    Please take me anywhere but here
    Anywhere but here

    You're all I've got right now
    No one else figures out this feeling
    And how lonely it can get (how lonely it can get)
    These words can cut right through
    'Cause all along I knew you're sorry
    But you haven't said it yet

    But I won't forget

    Secret love, my escape
    Take me far, far away
    Secret love, are you there
    Will you answer my prayer
    Please take me anywhere but here
    Anywhere but here

    When we're together
    Thoughts of her disappear
    If I fell to pieces
    You'd heal this pain I feel

    Secret love, my escape
    Take me far far away
    Secret love, are you there
    Will you answer my prayer

    Secret love, my escape
    Take me far, far away
    Secret love, are you there
    Will you answer my prayer
    Please take me anywhere but here
