Lyrics:
Your eyes said you were so much in love with me
You swore that you would never ever leave me
Now your lips are kissing someone else
Or maybe something else
All ya’ firkin’ promises are washed away.

Would time speed up and heal all my scars
Can’t even think of you’n’I apart
All I can do is to wait for my life
Just to start again!

You are my love‘n you are my dream’n
You are the only one I ever wanted,
You’re no longer worried when
You see me goin’ away.
The sea’n the sky and the mountain’s high
The clouds and the sun are shrinking ‘round me
The lights of the bridges I burnt down
Might be leading my way…

No I won’t cry just to see you happy,
I shut all the doors and leave the past behind.
Friends and laughs are holding up on me
To move on. Now I’m ready.
Life is too short; I’m back on track again.

It’s time to lock up sorrows, I’m alive
Looking on the shinin’ bright side
All I will do is to enjoy my firkin’ life
And start again!

You were my love’n you were my dream’n
You were the only one I ever wanted,
Now I’m no longer worried when
I see you goin’ away.
The sea’n the sky and the mountain’s high
The clouds and the sun are waiting for me
The lights of the bridges I burnt down
Will clearly lead my way.

It’s time lock up sorrows, I’m alive
Looking on the shinin’ bright side
All I will do is to enjoy my firkin’ life
And start again!

You were my love’n you were my dream’n
You were the only one I ever wanted,
And now I’m no longer worried when
I see you goin’ away.
The sea’n the sky and the mountain’s high
The clouds and the sun are waiting for me
The lights of the bridges I burnt down
Will clearly lead my way.

The sea’n the sky and the mountain’s high
The clouds and the sun are all waiting for me
The lights of the bridges I burnt down
Will clearly lead my way.
The sea’n the sky and the mountain’s high
The clouds and the sun are all waiting for me
The lights of the bridges I’m building up
Show me the way to start again.
