First days are always hard
But I've come for this to start

Soo I'm losing
Losing my grip, on reality
Nothing I can't control
I just need to do this
On my own

Middle -

It's a completely different world
But I'm just going along
Since the roads are divided
Choosing the right way is complicated oh

Chrous -

Soo I'm losing
Losing my grip, on reality
Nothing I can't control
I just need to do this
On my own

Things can get a little easier
I can be a little better
Fighting for a better life
So I decided to go towards the light oh

Chorus -

Soo I'm losing
Losing my grip, on reality
Nothing I can't control
I just need to do this
On my own
