lyrics

I've left the thoughts to stew,
The thoughts can simmer.
My future new
Is looking dimmer.
Here's to you,
The wholesome winner.
Yes, it's true;
I'm leaving you, leaving you.

I know I'm not the kindest face,
But I don't want you to replace me.
I hope nobody could fill my place;
I don't want you to replace me, -place me.

I'm flying off the rails,
'Til I fall to my death.
Daylight fails,
I lose my breath.
Heartbeat trails
With every guess
I don't want to be
Leaving, grieving, barely breathing...

I know I'm not the kindest face,
But I don't want you to replace me.
I hope nobody could fill my place;
I don't want you to replace me, -place me.

I can see it in your eyes,
Surprise, surprise
No-one wants me here to stay.
Only now I realise
The skies, the skies
Are falling backwards everyday.

All I seem to do is get in the way
And now I realise there's nothing left to say, left to say.
All I seem to bring are scapegoats for everyone,
And the punishment can't be, be undone.

I know I'm not the kindest face,
But I don't want you to replace me.
I hope nobody could fill my place;
I don't want you to replace me.

I'm scared that you'll lose every trace
'Cause I don't want you to replace me.
I hope nobody let's me go to waste.
No, no, no, no, please don't replace me!

I can see it in your eyes,
Surprise, surprise
No-one wants me here to stay.
Only now I realise
The skies, the skies
Are falling backwards everyday, everyday.
