My Brightside

The numbers change-another year gone
We’ll put away the tears and sing a happy song
We’ll sit and say we’ve come a long way
And worked so hard to mend the scars that fade again

And we’ll dance even if we’re the only ones dancing
And we’ll live like today is all we’ve got left to give
‘Cause you are my brightside-my only lifeline, my lifeline
You are the shining in my eyes: my brightside, my brightside

Here’s to the year and the trouble it brings
We’re trying to understand, ’cause silence won’t do a thing
Some time apart might be the kickstart
We need to grow up again and come back to make amends

And we’ll sing even if we’re the only ones singing
And we’ll live like today is all we’ve got left to give
‘Cause you are my brightside-my only lifeline, my lifeline
You are the shining in my eyes: my brightside, my brightside

You don’t even know that when you’re gone
All it takes is just a moment, and I’m already, I’m already alone
You don’t even know that when you’re here
All it takes is just a moment, and everything disappears
‘Cause you are my brightside-my only lifeline, my lifeline
You are the shining in my eyes: my brightside, my brightside
