lyrics

I want to run to the hills
I don't want to run slowly
I want to cut out the parts of me that whine
We cannot do this
Not even together
But we will try
Oh, we will try

I want to wade
In the clear waters
To have my hand held
And my fears shared
We cannot do this
Not even together
But we will try
Oh, we will try

I want to tear
These buildings to rubble
I want to touch the earth
With my own hands
I want to wake up
Early in the morning
To greet the sunrise
And the morning dew

I want to lash out
In furious anger
I want to retreat
In sorrow and shame
I want my friendships
To last forever
I want to live
And then to die

We cannot do this
Not even together
The world goes
Where it will go
We will die separate
And unforgiven
But we will try
Oh, we will try
