Lyrics

Woke up at 4 am,
Listening to the train go whistling
Through the dark again,
Lie awake in silence wishing
For some old, familiar warmth
Beside me in this bed,
Mind creating pictures of you
Torturing my head.

So I’ll light to fight the darkness
And that whisper coming in
Exhale into the empty truth
Of a fight I cannot win

And the sun’s gonna rise in a little while
So I’ll hide behind this smile
And set myself against the odds,
Losing arguments with God.
Well it hasn’t broken me yet,
And to be honest Juliet
You’re the better part of me
That I want to set free
But I’m just not ready yet.
I’m not ready yet.

Rolled out of bed at ten,
Going through the motions of pretending
To be human
Listening to the songs that let me wallow in the pain
Imagining your cold reaction
To hear I’m gone again

So I’ll light to fight the darkness
And the whispers coming in,
Exhale into the empty truth
Of a fight I cannot win

And the sun’s gonna rise in a little while
So I’ll hide behind this smile
And set myself against the odds,
Losing arguments with God.
Well it hasn’t broken me yet,
And to be honest Juliet
You’re the better part of me
That I want to set free
But I’m just not ready yet.
I’m not ready yet.
