Forget what you saw, its irrelevant now
Isn’t the future what you want? Jump ship it's going down
Watch me drift away, in to distant lands
I’ve been counting down the days. Now I’m a distant sound

You find your way to me no matter where I hide
You're my favourite enemy and my worst ally

This is what comes next for me, what I was made to do
It's in a language you don’t speak, it won’t make sense to you
I’ve tried to explain and make you understand
You never listen and you’ll never change, giving you all I can
The space I occupied is vacant now
We were swallowed by the tide, I escaped somehow
I was once a part of you but now you’re on your own
It's time for me to bloom You have to let me go

But this is my white flag, I'm giving up on you
Letting go of what we had, it's time for something new
