lyrics

Turn away
You know this scene by heart
Every frame and phrase
Is still the same
And nothing ever goes
Better than before

Turn away
No secret’s hiding there
Inside the rusted past
If you remain
How will you ever know
Better than before

Turn away
Tomorrow calls without explaining
Up ahead you’ll see
Take a chance
Your memories will not sustain you
Turn away with me

Turn away
Those cutting words were said
And we all have our scars
Let ’em fade
And maybe we will grow
Better than before

Chorus

If I sing this song for you
Will you sing with me?

Turn away
Tomorrow calls without explaining
Up ahead you’ll see
Take a chance
Your certainties will not sustain you
Turn away with me
