Lyrics[edit | edit source]

The chorus is fan-translated.

You don't know what it's like to live in shadows
Always regretting what you've done
Spending time counting every little mistake
Knowing it's always easier to run

You don't have to spend your life looking backward
We've been through this over and over again
You can't just wish it away
The past is the past, it'll never change
That was before and this is now and when

We have a chance to make it
Better if we try
Oh, but I will not endanger one more friend
You're free to do the things you want
But listen, so am I
I've made my choice
And now I'm making mine

Go where you need to
Know I won't leave you
I'll follow you like morning follows night
You can run 'till your pain's through
One thing I won't do is to let you go
Alone to face the fight

Hard to know where to turn when your life's a disaster
Trying to start all over again
So much shame, so much time that just feels wasted
Feeling like now could never make up for then

Life's not a game you can play to get even
We all make mistakes but we need to move on
I know that you hate where you strayed
Forgiving yourself is the only way

Just look ahead yesterday is gone

I know you think you're being selfless, but you're not
I refuse to risk another's pain again
The pain is when you shut me out and take off on your own
No matter what
You'll never walk alone

See, you'll never understand
What I feel, what I see
What's going through my mind
How it feels being me
All these struggles, all these fights
Long days, longer nights
Trying to search for this happiness
Lost in the lights
But it seems that it's all
Just out of my sight
Just out of my reach,
Can't seem to get it right
Like I'm cursed with this turbulence
Placed in my life
Can't push or pull it,
Stuck up in this bull pit
Cycle of pain
All this stress in my brain
I'm just trying to maintain
You could go insane
But no matter what I do
The cries go unheard
Yet I still believe in you
Every breath, every word
Every smile, every glance
Could be another chance
That you'll finally see
The love that is me
So until that time
I'll follow every day
Every step of the way
And continue to say

Go where you need to
Know I won't leave you
I'll follow you like morning follows night
You can run 'till your pain's through
One thing I won't do
Is let you go alone to face the fight
