Lyrics:

How did we get here
Castaway
On a lonely shore
I can see in your eyes dear
That you can’t take
A moment more
We’ve got to

(Pre-Chorus)
Burn the ships
Cut the ties
Send a flare
Into the night
Say a prayer
Turn the tide
Dry your tears
And wave goodbye

(Chorus)
Step into a new day
We can leave it in the dust and walk away
We can dance upon the heartache, yeah
So light a match
Burn the ships
Walk away
And don’t ya look back

(Verse 2)
Don’t let it arrest you
Fear, this fear of falling again
Don’t let it shake you
I’m right here
You don’t have to pretend
We’ve got to

(Pre-Chorus)
Burn the ships
Cut the ties

Send a flare
Into the night
Say a prayer
Turn the tide
Dry your tears
And wave goodbye

(Chorus)
Step into a new day
We can leave it in the dust and walk away
We can dance upon the heartache, yeah
So light a match
Burn the ships
Walk away
And don’t ya look back

(Bridge)
Goodbye to shame
So long to sorrow
Walk through the fire
Into tomorrow
Flush the pills
Face the fear
Feel the weight
Disappear
Coming clean
born again
Our hopeful lungs
Can breathe again
Oh we can breathe again

(Chorus)
Step into a new day
We can leave it in the dust and walk away
We can dance upon the heartache, yeah
So light a match
Burn the ships
Walk away

(Chorus)
Step into a new day

We can leave it in the dust and walk away
We can dance upon the heartache, yeah
So light a match
Burn the ships
Walk away
And don’t ya look back
And don’t ya look back
And don’t ya look back
