Sometimes life takes a path that is hard to walk on, so all you have to do is put on your hiking boots.

How can I trust you when you’re the one whose breaking apart
Practically falling
At the seams
You smile like an angel and you know what to say to me
And somewhere beneath it all
I still love you
But that flickering light bulb will go out eventually
And the darkness will drape over me

Because somewhere in that heart of yours
I hope your still there
Love hasn’t treated you very fair
Be like the sun
Be like the moon
They never say you owe me you owe me you owe
Look what a love like that does
It lights up the darkest places

So beneath that mask there is a man
And beneath all that pain there is a hand
I just hope you’ll reach for mine


So beneath all that hate there is a heart
And beneath all those scars there is a new start
And beneath all those lies there is a truth
I just hope you tell me soon

Because somewhere I know you’re out there
Fixing hearts you know you can repair
But some things in life are harder to bare
Be like the sun
Be like the moon
They never say you owe me
You don’t owe me anything
You don’t owe me anything
Look what our flicking love does
It still lights up the darkest places.
