the only thing left

lyrics

Not too long ago I lost my bearings
The swiftest compass couldn’t set me straight
All I wanted was to know that darkness could be visible
I trained my eyes but still the black remains
Oh, oh, oooo

When your mind shuts down
Then your body shuts down
And the only thing left, the only thing left
When your mind shuts down
Then your body shuts down
And the only thing left, the only thing left
Is your broken bones and the coldest stone at your head

All too often I’ve found love is fleeting
I’ve watched it walk away step by step
All you have is all you’ve got and what you’ve got I wouldn’t want
I’ll take my chances by myself instead
Oh, oh, oooo

When your mind shuts down
Then your body shuts down
And the only thing left, the only thing left
When your mind shuts down
Then your body shuts down
And the only thing left, the only thing left
Is your broken bones and the coldest stone at your head

It is desolate when you wake up imprisoned
It is desolate when you can’t wake up
It is desolate when you wake up imprisoned
It is desolate when you can’t wake up

When your mind shuts down
Then your body shuts down
And the only thing left, the only thing left
When your mind shuts down
Then your body shuts down
And the only thing left, the only thing left
Is your broken bones and the coldest stone at your head

Oh, oh, oooo
