Verse 1

Distraction, replacement, substitute,

There will never be another you.

And I'm no more who I used to be

Back in the day when I still believed

That all crossroads don't lead to dead ends,

And all shining orbs don't turn crescent,

And every love doesn't turn to dust.

But you've proved me wrong, just look at us.

Chorus

I no longer hope against hope,

Hotwired my heart and learnt to cope.

I no longer have faith in love

Sent down from the Heaven above.

Nothing can move me but you,

And you won't ever try to.

So I'll take roots here and let my thorns bloom,

Find my shelter in my shadows of gloom.

Verse 2

Memories, flashbacks, old photographs.

It's like my soul has been split in half.

A part of it lost without your light,

Another part lays awake at night,

Feeling nothing but air so stagnant.

Do you wonder where our good times went?

Latched on the tail of Hailey's comet?

Just look at our miserable fate!

Chorus

I no longer hope against hope,

Hotwired my heart and learnt to cope.

I no longer have faith in love

Sent down from the Heaven above.

Nothing can move me but you,

And you won't ever try to.

So I'll take roots here and let my thorns bloom,

Find my shelter in my shadows of gloom.

Bridge

Do you ever wonder how I'm surviving without

The vibrant innocent evergreen sprout

That you killed with your self-inflicted drought.

Let's be real, we both know what you're all about.

And I no longer believe in you.

Chorus

I no longer hope against hope,

Hotwired my heart and learnt to cope.

I no longer have faith in love

Sent down from the Heaven above.

Nothing can move me but you,

And you won't ever try to.

So I'll take roots here and let my thorns bloom,

Find my shelter in my shadows of gloom.
