Original video
How could I have been so fucking blind?

Look out, look out, look by your side
Sometimes the devil wears a pretty disguise
So reach out, cry out, open my eyes
Show me my future before I kiss it goodbye

And you told me we could fly, so I hold on
And once again, once again I leave it all behind
You told me we could swim, so I climbed so high
Up to a mountain for you, I closed my eyes and I took the dive

How can I make up for all this lost time?

The scent of home sweet home
Now bears the bitterest smell
And the land I was meant to love
Feels like a short stay in hell

Feels like a short stay in hell
It's time to let go

You told me we could fly, so I hold on
And once again, once again I leave it all behind
You told me we could swim, so I climbed so high
Up to a mountain for you, I closed my eyes and I took the dive

How can I make up for all this fucking lost time
That I'll never ever get back?
Twenty-five to life I thank you for, thanks for wasting my time
Time I'll never ever, ever, ever get back

How could I have been so fucking blind?

You told me we could fly, so I hold on
And once again, once again I leave it all behind
You told me we could swim, so I climbed so high
Up to a mountain for you, I closed my eyes and I took the dive

And I took the dive
And I took the dive

You told me we could fly, so I hold on
And once again, once again I leave it all behind
You told me we could swim, so I climbed so high
Up to a mountain for you, I closed my eyes

I've been so fucking blind
