the universe (fell)

You burn your life like this
doesn’t it
Feel real
Burning at both ends
When will it make sense?
It’s all grey
Got to get out of this

And they say
We’re made of stars
But the universe is empty
Inside of us
So lay it down
there’s no lights in the sky

And we didn’t have to stay
we didn’t have to burn out like this
Maybe it’s just the weight

But you don’t have to carry the world
Not today
It’s time someone told you
You can’t stop what’s coming
You can’t carry everyone
And you can’t save yourself
From the pain of things past
Healing takes courage
It may take some time
But today
you don’t have to carry
The world

And we burn our lives like this
Bold from both ends
We are made of stars and dust
But the universe left us
And the pain is real
Without a light in the sky
We see where we’re headed
And we can’t stop what’s coming
So we keep on running
Burning out at both ends

It’s not enough
To carry the world on your shoulders
And it’s not enough just to pray
To love your self
and the decisions you’ve made
The lights go out
You’re just the same
You burn your life like this
But doesn’t it feel real
Burning out both ends
Only if you do what they say
Only if you choose to stay
Only if you think that way

And
We don’t have to carry the world
This way
We don’t have to stay here anymore
We can heal from what’s past
With only courage to hold us
We can smash these pieces
And forget about the rest
Let’s just forget all the effort
And let’s just lay down and rest
Because we can’t stop what’s coming
And we’re hanging by frayed edges
And the universe is gone inside me
And the lights are gone
But your name is on my lips
When I sleep
And I see
A light ahead

doesn’t it feel real
Burning out both ends
We are more than we think
We are more than we see
More than just on the brink
We are ….
