lyrics

I hear the sky open up and let the water fall down
Give me the strength to maintain and hope that I'll come around
Because there's nothing for me in hanging on to the past
I hear your words in my head, I know my love is outcast

Shot into orbit
Bending the light between my hands
I know it's never the same, why did you let me down?
Enough to bury your tender heart six feet deep into the ground

And if this ever was mine, how could you give it away
I know it's never enough, just to be decent and sane
So if there's someone alive who thinks that they could love me
Well I just can't see, no

So far above all the world, I can see clusters of light
A million people below are sleeping right through the night
And at the center of this, there is a ball of red fire -- all your desires

Shot into orbit
Burning across the empty sky
Under the shattering rain, I know I let you down
And all the wonders on earth will fall when no one cares to hear the sound

And if this ever was mine, how could you give it away
I know it's never enough, just to be decent and sane
So if there's someone alive who thinks that they could love me
Well throw your arms in the air because from here I can't see
I can't see, no

I know it's never the same, why did you let me down?
And all the wonders on earth vanish without a sound
Under the shattering rain, I know I let you down
And if you're looking for me, you know I won't be found

Under the shattering rain, I'm lost and I'm given away
I know it's never the same
But how could you give it away?
