lyrics

She wakes up in the morning unable to speak
Her breath evaporates the life she’s chosen
The words she tries to swallow are still too thick
But soon her throat will be wide open

Growing old and getting tired was a piece of cake
Resisting to herself was a huge mistake
She lives where she stands, forgets the rest
She loved the East but she went West

Don’t be overwhelmed(Keep safe your pride)
Your dreams were false, your eyes were blind (Then look inside)
But you were given miles to walk (What for and why) (
) Miles to live and miles to die (As years go by...)
Pretend you’re brave, you’re strong
Prepare yourself to say goodbye...

She feels uninspired, she fights in vain
She starts to understand that kind of freedom
It seems to be a pleasure, not a pain
She doesn’t have to build another kingdom

Growing old and letting go is not a piece of cake
Trying to stop the time is a huge mistake
She lives where she stands, forgets the rest
She reaches East by heading West...

Don’t be overwhelmed(Keep safe your pride)
Your dreams were false, your eyes were blind (Then look inside)
But you were given miles to walk (What for and why?) (
) Miles to live and miles to die (As years go by...)
Pretend you’re brave, you’re strong
Prepare yourself to say goodbye...
