(H-h-hm!)
I'll start again.

I'm sorry, he didn't see you, all right?
A-one, two,
One...

Now I know;
And I'm never gonna be the same
Again.
I looked in your heart (I looked in your heart)
And I saw (and I saw)
In my soul. (in my soul.)
I felt (I felt)
Darkness pull. (darkness pull.)

Now I (Now I)
Can't explain. (can't explain.)
The sky (The sky)
Only rains. (only rains.)

Now I (Now I)
Know (know)
That it really can't be any other (That it really can't be any other)
Way. (way.)
((It can't be any other))
I looked in your eyes (I looked in your eyes) ((way.))
And I cried (And I cried)
For my life; (for my life;)
For your life (For your life)
Is a lie. (is a lie.)

Now I (Now I)
Can't explain. (can't explain.)
The sky (The sky)
Only rains. (only rains.)
Is it me? (Is it me?)
