lyrics

There is a part of me that’s leaving
And a part of you that’s gone
I don’t know how I should be feeling
But I know where it went wrong

In the chaos of emotion
I can’t see a single star
Fighting back against the maelstrom
'Til I don’t know who we are
I am bleeding but I’m quiet
You are wounded and you scream
Close my heart so I won’t fear you
And my eyes but it’s no dream

For a moment in the darkness
Thought I was blind
I let it take me 'til I made up my mind

I am cracked but I’m not broken
You’ll never break me down
I won’t be silent any longer
I won’t give it up and drown
I am splinters wrapped together
You can throw me on the fire
I am rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix of desire

There is a part of me that’s grieving
For the part of you that shone
I can’t explain the things I’m feeling
I just know we don’t belong

In the remnant of devotion
Like a firefly in a jar
Fading slowly into nothing
Didn’t know we’d come this far
We’re diverging, you are distant
I can’t find the words to say
You’re a memory in the mirror
You’re a part of yesterday

I am cracked but I’m not broken
You’ll never break me down
I won’t be silent any longer
I won’t give it up and drown
I am splinters wrapped together
You can throw me on the fire
I am rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix of desire

And I cut the cord that has tied me here to you
Don’t wanna let the loss linger, no
Fall for the first time without you catching me
Somehow I land on my feet, so

I cut the cord that has tied me here to you
Don’t wanna let the loss linger, no
Fall for the first time without you catching me
Somehow I land on my feet, you know

This regret has made me restless
I’m moving on
Into the flicker of another dawn

I am cracked but I’m not broken
You’ll never break me down
I won’t be silent any longer
I won’t give it up and drown
I am splinters wrapped together
You can throw me on the fire
I am rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix of desire

You’ll never break me down
I won’t be silent any longer
I won’t give it up and drown
I am splinters wrapped together
You can throw me on the fire
I am rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix of desire

And I cut the cord that has tied me here to you
Don’t wanna let the loss linger, no
Fall for the first time without you catching me
Somehow I land on my feet, so

I cut the cord that has tied me here to you
Don’t wanna let the loss linger, no
Fall for the first time without you catching me
Somehow I land on my feet, so go
