Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Starry skies, please hold me
River run more slowly let me listen closely
Tell me how to love you better

Forest keep me present
Mountains show me heaven
Mother teach may lessons
Tell me how to love you better
Tell me how to love you better

Wait, take me back home now
Wait, take me back home now
Change, I would but I don't know how
But I can't just watch it all, watch it all
Watch it all fall down
I can't just watch it all, watch it all
Watch it all fall down
Wait, takе me back home now
Wait, just take mе back home now
I need to change, oh, but I don't know how
But I can't just watch it all, watch it all
Watch it all fall down
But I can't just watch it all, watch
It all, watch it all fall down, ooh oh

Na na na, yeah, na na na, hey hey
Na na na, yeah, na na na, yeah, yeah

But I can't just watch it all, watch it all
Watch it all fall down
But I can't just watch it all, watch it all
Watch it all
Watch it all, watch it all, watch it all




Watch it all, watch it all
Watch it all fall down
