Verse 1

When caught in the middle of people's fights,

I should stop pretending that I can make it alright.

Cause if there's one thing that I've learnt,

It's best to sit aside and let it all burn.

You can't make a difference, no matter what you do.

If you try to interfere, they'll only turn against you.

Chorus

But these are people I'll protect with my very being.

I can't turn around and walk away from everything.

Somebody has to take the responsibility.

I don't ask "why me", I ask "why not me"?

I have to try, I can't let it all just break.

I have to try, I can't let them make this mistake.

Verse 2

I'm aware this isn't some kind of Disney movie.

I'm not supposed to try to fix anything, it isn't up to me.

But when caught in the middle of a fight,

Somebody has to do something, right?

Not sure what I can do to help in this complex situation.

But I'm not giving up, I'm not losing my motivation.

Chorus

Cause these are people I'll protect with my very being.

I can't turn around and walk away from everything.

Somebody has to take the responsibility.

I don't ask "why me", I ask "why not me"?

I have to try, I can't let it all just break.

I have to try, I can't let them make this mistake.

Bridge

If there's one thing that I've learnt,

It's best to sit aside and let it all burn.

But how long till the flames catch you too?

Then you'll regret not doing the things you could do.

Chorus

And these are people I'll protect with my very being.

I can't turn around and walk away from everything.

Somebody has to take the responsibility.

I don't ask "why me", I ask "why not me"?

I have to try, I can't let it all just break.

I have to try, I can't let them make this mistake.
