Lyrics

Like Veronika
2020 Bennett/Campbell

Verse I
I'm Afraid to see my future die
Like my past,
No goodbye
I wonder if I
Could even try
To stop time

Chorus
To
Live
Life

Bridge
Veronika thought to die
Changed her mind
Her reason
Was love

Verse II
All
She ever wants inside
To belong
To someone

Chorus
To
Live
Life

Middle Eight
All I ever really wanted was to find the one I'm waiting for
To adore
Nothing more
Oh
But sometimes I just can't find the thing I need to make my dull life shine
And the suffocating pain of waiting
Like I can't come up for air
Veronika
Oh

Verse III
I
Want the chance to find her again
Because she's
In my head

Chorus
To
Live
Life

Bridge

Veronika thought to die
Changed her mind
Her reason
Was love
