(Verse I)
Yesterday we broke out into a fight
I said things I didn’t mean
You saw me in a different light
I’m sorry if you lay in ruins
I’m sorry if it’s too late now
To take back the damage I’ve caused

(Chorus I)
Pompeii, I want you back
Lost something beautiful
Because I erupted like that
Pompeii, can’t you see
I need you here
Without an island like you
What’s a volcano like me
Supposed to be?

(Verse II)
You didn’t see the signs
I’m still angry at myself
For crossing the line
By blaming it all on you
Is there anything I can say?
Anything that I could do
That would make it up to you

(Chorus II)
Pompeii, I want you back
Lost something beautiful
Because I erupted like that
Pompeii, can’t you see
I need you here
Without an island like you
What’s a volcano like me
Supposed to be?


(Bridge)
When I realized the damage I caused
I put my steaming lava on pause
Tried to reconstruct your heart
Tried to repaint the art
So please don’t leave
Pompeii, what do you need?

(Chorus III)
Pompeii, I want you back
Lost something beautiful
Because I erupted like that
Pompeii, can’t you see
I need you here
Without an island like you
What’s a volcano like me
Supposed to be?
