We’re crossing over
the point of no return,
no turning back now.
You can forget everything from your old life.

I’m gonna brave this storm
if it’s with you now.
You can do all you never knew you could.

You followed all the rules so well,
come to find no one’s keeping score.
I don’t want this for you anymore.
I want you to feel it in your bones and come with me.
Won’t you come with me?

People are lining up to tell
all that you don’t have and never will.
Underneath I know you’re hiding more
let your layers fall to the floor.
So you can see now,
you can see.

Even if we fall apart
we will know, we will know.
Is it worth trying for?
We will know, we will know.
Come with me, it’s not pretend.
I can show you, I can show.
Picture this from your lips.
I can show you, I can show.
This is not pretend.
Are you hearing me?
This is not pretend.
Are you listening?

So, just forget everything from your old life.
