​dodie – Before the Line Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I used to smile at every star and thank the sky
Now I look up to all the duds and wonder why
I feel like all of them are gone
Can’t feel a single one

[Verse 2]
And so I stretch my eyes across the land and sea
I know I loved the world, but now it’s flat to me
Oh, tell me, did someone snatch the light?
Why doesn’t it look right?

[Chorus]
I made a promise, but I break it every day
It’s not my fault, for I was promised just the same
Once I saw fire, and all I know is something happened
Did I let it go?

[Verse 3]
Now every morning since the line between my lives
I greet the sun and ask, “Have I already died?
If not, then why am I alone?
And when can I come home?”

[Bridge]
Oh, and I am lying when I say
It’s time to let her float away
No, I’m still glowing for the strings
Oh, I’d do any fucking thing
I know I have to close the door
Too much to miss it anymore
I think that this really is it
I’ll have to take what I can get
I’ll have to take what I can get
What I can get

[Chorus]
I made a promise, but I break it every day
It’s not my fault, for I was promised just the same
Once I saw fire, and all I know is something happened
Did I let it go?
I made a promise, but I break it every day
No, it’s not my fault, for I was promised just the same
Once I saw fire, and all I know is something happened
Did I let it go?
Once I saw fire, and all I know is something happened
Did I let it go?
