lyrics

In a time where things get thrown away
Instead of fixing them
Everything is losing its value
We switch from one person to another
Waiting for "the one" to make us happy
Finding nothing but disappointment
Unable to love, but consume

We're trying to improve the play
By replacing the protagonists
Facing nothing but empty halls
Again and again the same frustrating show
Looking for the missing pieces
To close the gaps in our hearts
No one will come and make you complete
Cause that's what they all are looking for

Love me for my imperfection
Accept me for who I am
With all my flaws and contradictions
Love me like you've never been hurt before
Not for me or because of you
Just do it for the sake of love

We live according to someone's expectations
Sacrificing our freedom and self esteem
Compromise by betraying ourselves
Just to get the acknowledgement that
We've been craving so desperately
We refuse to take responsibility
Projecting our desire upon each other
Living on someone else's expense

Love me for my imperfection
Accept me for who I am
With all my flaws and contradictions
Love me like you've never been hurt before
Not for me or because of you
Just do it for the sake of love

A life of dependance
Out of fear of loneliness
How can we be together
If we can't be alone?
How can we see the beauty in each other
If we don't see it in ourselves?
For we are beautiful creatures
Waiting to be seen

This is the time to fix what's broken
To hold on to for what it's worth
We stand together through good and bad
Forgive ourselves for what we've done
Approach each other with open hearts
Reach out for "the ones" willing to see
To find everything we ever dreamed of
And give it all away
