~Lyrics to the Song~

I remembered black skies, the lightning all around me.
I remembered each flash, as time began to blur.
Like a startling sign, that fate had finally found me.

(pre chorus) And your voice was all I heard, That i get what I deserve

(chorus) So give me reason, to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean.
Let the floods kreuz the distance in your eyes.
Give me reason, to fill this hole
Connect the Weltraum between.
Let it fill up to reach the truth and lies
Across this new divide

There was nothing inside, the memories left abandoned
There was nowhere to hide, the ashes fell like snow
And the ground caved in, between where we were standing

(pre-chorus)And your voice was all I heard, that I get what I deserve

(chorus) So give me reason, to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross, the distance in your eyes
Give me reason, to fill this hole
Connect the Weltraum between
Let it fill up to reach the truth and lies
Across this new divide

In every loss
In every lie
In every truth that Du deny
And each regret
And each goodbye
Was a mistake too great to hide

(pre-chorus) And your voice was all I heard, that I get what I deserve

(chorus) So give me reason, to prove me wrong, to wash this memory clean
Let the floods kreuz the distance in your eyes
Give me reason, to fill this hole
Connect the Weltraum between
Let it fill up to reach the truth and lies
Across this new divide

Across this new divide (x2)
