Lyrics

Eighteen days
I know we'll always miss them
Smiling face
Tears inside with you
And everything beautiful surrounds you
I'm sorry that I let you down
I know I let you down
Mmmmmmmmm
Everything beautiful surrounds you
I'm sorry that I let you down

Turn me up
Wish that I could listen
Words swept away
Written down for you
Never release the one who found you
Sorry that I let you down
I know I let you down
Mmmmmmmmm
Never release the one who found you
I'm sorry that I let you down

Turn it up
Wish that I could listen
Wake me up
If ever you get here
And everything real is all and all you
Sorry that I let you down
I know I let you down
Mmmmmmmmm
And everything real is all and all you
Everything beautiful surrounds you
Never release the one who found you
Sorry that I let you down
