Lyrics[edit | edit source]

If the sun's not up
I'll bring it to you
And if my mind says stop
My heart will know what to do

And if the stars are faded
I'll blow the sun to pieces
Make it rain
Then the loneliness is gone

We could roll back time
Before we were broken inside
And leave it all behind
And forget the world for a while

Or maybe we'd be strangers
And we'd never needed fixing
We'll be okay
Cause we never met at all

I could be a comet
Floating through space
Cause being lost in you
Is the best place

Let's go back to where we started
I'll be right here
Just follow the light
Let me burn through your atmosphere
I'll burn for you

When the day turns night
You know where to go.
You see the light in the sky
You know you're not alone

Maybe we could make it
Out here where the air is clearer
In the blue
Far away from gravity

I could be a comet
Floating through space
Cause being lost in you
Is the best place

Let's go back to where we started
I'll be right here
Just follow the light
Let me burn through your atmosphere
I'll burn for you

I'll be like a comet
Floating in your space
Being lost in you
I'll be lost for days

Let's go back to where we started
I'll be right here
Just follow the light
Let me burn through your atmosphere
I'll burn for you

And I keep burning through
Cause I burn for you
