Verse 1

This day has been a long time coming,

My hands bleed from these strings I've been strumming

Since the summer paradise turned into my palest winter-

You took away the "ella" in me, now all that's left is cinder.

My saddest melody can't do justice to all the songs I wrote

About my wishful thinking of forever, you said, quote- unquote,

"People break up all the time", and I knew not what to say.

But this burnt out candle finally has an answer for you today.

Chorus

Having you standing by my side used to feel so precious,

Like a much awaited lunar landing.

Now you've broken my heart so bad, I won't chase you

Even if you were the last man standing.

Verse 2

We both knew where this was going,

I thought one could change the course of a river that's flowing,

God bless silly me, kept striking at a mountain with a little nail-

The only hole I managed to bore was in my own heart, epic fail.

That scorching summer made soothing by your fond smile,

And I swore that for you I would gladly walk a thousand miles.

Quote-unquote, remember, you said, "It's never too late",

So what happened to that? Then why did we have a last date?

Chorus

I remember having you standing by my side used to feel so precious,

Like a much awaited lunar landing.

Now you've broken my heart so bad, I won't chase you

Even if you were the last man standing.

Bridge

I never gave you the "Dear John" letter written in invisible ink,

Quoting lyrics from my favorite sad songs,

I choked on my own tears, my eyes were turning pink,

Remembering how I thought you were where I belong,

Chorus

How having you standing by my side used to feel so precious,

Like a much awaited lunar landing.

Now you've broken my heart so bad, I won't chase you

Even if you were the last man standing.

Chorus

Having you standing by my side used to feel so precious,

Like a much awaited lunar landing.

Now you've broken my heart so bad, I won't chase you

Even if you were the last man standing,

Even if you were the last man standing.

Outro

This day has been a long time coming,

My hands bleed from these strings I've been strumming

Since the summer paradise turned into my palest winter-

You took away the "ella" in me, now all that's left is cinder.
