Verse 1

Standing motionless at the edge of night,

Afraid to even blink because it might,

Wake me up to a morning where a light

Tries to replace your star that burns so bright.

Chorus

But selfishness will never catch up with my feet,

That move on their own, in rhythm with my heart beat.

I have to do

What's best for you

No matter what that does to me.

And I'll walk away now, you'll see.

Verse 2

Standing motionless at the break of day,

Afraid I'll move and you'll just fade away,

Merge with my tears that touch the ground of clay.

When you love, let go, that's the price you pay.

Chorus

And selfishness will never catch up with my feet,

That move on their own, in rhythm with my heart beat.

I have to do

What's best for you

No matter what that does to me.

And I'll walk away now, you'll see.

Bridge

You'll see me few years later standing motionless,

In a far away meadow, a familiar face,

And your attempts to reach me will all be futile,

Cause you've never left, you're in my heart, so I'll smile.

Chorus

And selfishness will never catch up with my feet,

That move on their own, in rhythm with my heart beat.

I have to do

What's best for you

No matter what that does to me.

And I'll walk away now, you'll see.
