Turn it all around again
Back when I had a heart
Will I ever love again?
Or when will I even start?

What happened yesterday won’t happen today
And tomorrow may never come

Days go slow and years fly by
Simple Simon will make it fly
For the soul and the light of the sun

Hurtful names, we call it fair
Leave that life behind and learn to understand the air

But on that day I planned to stay
And tomorrow never looked that way
For the soul and the light of the sun

Dark rooms and puddles down on my cheeks
But it’s just what I need to keep my voice in the right key
Ooh, the words that brought me to sleep
Saying my name as you leave
Your’s was the heart that I couldn’t keep
It was the heart that I couldn’t keep

The insolvency that kills the mood
Couldn’t wake with a kiss
The forces that control this room
They sit above all us and all of them and all of this

Now I’m broken, I’m beat
And I’m boiling with heat
I’m giving up sugar
I’m giving up sweet

I’m a carousel, a spinning head
An open book that’s never read
Stuck because I can’t feel my feet

And then my walls came down
I waved a flag and I stood down
But then I stood corrected with a crown

But on that day, I planned to stay
But tomorrow never looked that way
It’s just too reckless to allow
