lyrics

I am scared of the space you make in my mind
Of the black hole a star leaves behind
You have pushed the darkness far away
But I can't need you, I can't need you to stay

Cause one day you might shine in other skies
And I will have to learn to turn the light on
With supernovas burning up behind my eyes
Well, my world will still be brighter...

...even when you're gone,
You're making me stronger
With the strength that I grew when you were here
It was mine all along, but no longer
Will it falter in face of fear
On the shortest day of the year
And that's thanks to you, my dear

I am scared of the space you make in my bed
I never noticed it before it held your head
You have made my waking up so warm
But I can't need you to set my alarm

Cause one day you might find another pillow
And I will have to fall asleep alone
Maybe you won't want to, but you will go
Well, my world will still be brighter...

...even when you're gone,
You're making me stronger
With the strength that I grew when you were here
It was mine all along, but no longer
Will it falter in face of fear
On the shortest day of the year
And that's thanks to you
That's thanks to you, my dear
My dear
