Lyrics

Gone

Written By: Ninja Monkey

A moment of truth discovering the lies,
these are the days you always remember.
When clarity takes a back seat to pain,
when there's nothing to do but surrender.

I could spend the rest of the night,
trying to make this right.
But I'll just walk away right now.

I hear you calling, you're calling after me.
Crawling, you're crawling on your knees.
But I am gone,
a thousand miles away.
Gone, there's nothing left to say,
I'm moving on.

Don't turn back, there's nothing you can say,
this time your words won't make it right. (words won't make this alright)
Time will heal, scars will fade away,
you had your chance, give up the fight.

I could spend the rest of my life,
trying to make this right.
But I'll just walk away right now.

I hear you calling, you're calling after me.
Crawling, you're crawling on your knees.
But I am gone,
a thousand miles away.
Gone, there's nothing left to say,
I'm moving on.

Out Of Nowhere

Written By: Ninja Monkey

Something so easy,
sometimes comes so hard.
You think there’s no feeling,
from a heart that’s so scarred.
You take it for granted,
some things will just be.
When your eyes are wide open,
it’s hardest to see.

I can’t do this anymore.
I can’t do this.

And then you came,
and then you saved me.
And then you came,
out of nowhere.

There’s never enough time,
to breathe in a change.
Then fate marches on in,
and turns a new page.
The past and the future,
sometimes feels the same.
I’ve got to remember,
that you’re not to blame.

I think I can do this,
I can do this

And then you came,
and then you saved me.
And then you came,
out of nowhere.

Hold On

Written By: Ninja Monkey

It took you so long,
to believe how I feel.
And somewhere along the way,
you lost yourself again.
I'm reaching out for you,
with these hands that just can't feel.
I'm reaching out,
hold on, hold on.

'cause I can't let this get away,
'cause I can't let this get away

When your hope is gone,
hold on.
When your heart is torn,
hold on.

And I'll be reaching out, breaking out,
calling out for you.
And I'll be reaching out, breaking out,
I'll be there for you.
Just hold on.

I'm moving mountains,
just to bring you back to me.
Keeping this dream alive,
is harder than it seems.
Your reaching out for me,
with a heart that just won't heal.
You're reaching out,
hold on, hold on.

'cause we can't let this get away,
'cause we can't let this get away

When your hope is gone,
hold on.
When your heart is torn,
hold on.

And I'll be reaching out, breaking out,
calling out for you.
And I'll be reaching out, breaking out,
I'll be there for you.
Just hold on.

Solo

And I'll be reaching out, breaking out,
calling out for you.
And I'll be reaching out, breaking out,
I'll be there for you.
Just hold on.

When your hope is gone,
hold on.
When your heart is torn,
hold on.

City Lights

Written By: Ninja Monkey

Picture postcards from the winter,
casting shadows on the ground.
Little notes you wrote in summer,
don't read the same without you round.

But I never said I love you,
just to hear you say it back

Time moves so much slower,
high above the city lights.
Stars shine like tear drops,
Fading softly into the night.

But I never said I love you,
just to hear you say it back
