Tell me, tell me your last hope
Whispered quietly alone
That they slowly stole

A stranger is writing the script now
You're an extra nothing more
Maybe a few lines

In your mind you claimed the first prize
But they won't even let you near
To the starting line

Call all your friends tell them you're not dead
I've had a thought, I've got a great plan
Don't give up just yet

Promises you won't even speak of
Oh it's not anybody's fault
But you don't forgive yourself

Call me, call and I'll answer
Cos I've seen silence in your fight
But you still scream inside

Call all your friends tell them you're not dead
I've had a thought, I've got a great plan
Call all your friends tell them we're back on
I've had a thought better than you think
Don't give up just yet

You know I've seen you give your best
And now the rest is all that's left
Your resolutions mark your fall
New solutions feel like old
"Oh shake it off with forceful words"
Tried it all but it won't go

You're feeling like you've lost it
On your way out
But can you see that in the distance?
That's where we'll be
I know, I know you don't believe me
But it's all I can say
All I can say
Would you forget your good behaviour
Just let it go
Stop holding your breath and composure
Just let it out
You've built a dam to stop your tears
Let's break it down
Let's burst the banks
