Burned at Both Ends Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's nothing left now that doesn't come from suffering
Victims of time, were defined by our history
Forever lost, and now I don't know who the fuck I have become
Where has my life gone?
Verse 2
I'm holding on to a life, I'll never get back
It's too hard to let go
I'm on the right train but the wrong tracks
Trying not to derail
Verse 3
Nothing is like it was before
I know not who I am anymore
Chasing something that's behind me
When will I be set free?
Verse 4
So what is left of this life that's in front of me?
Is there a future when you only see in memories?
When every loss, every beauty just reminds you of the past
How can you just let go?
Verse 5
I'm holding on to a life, I'll never get back
It's too hard to let go
I'm on the right train but the wrong tracks
Trying not to derail
Verse 6
Nothing is like it was before
I know not who I am anymore
Chasing something that's behind me
When will I be set free?
Verse 7
Broken promises left to mend
Burning the candle at both ends
No light to find my way back home
But I don't know where "home" is anymore
The sinking ship has washed ashore
Verse 8
This misery has got to end
What's done is done
The past is a strange place
Verse 9
Look, look at me now, just a fool with everything, but yet I'm still so hollow
Look, look at us now, no lights just struggling to find our way back home
Verse 10
I'm holding on to a life, I'll never get back
It's too hard to let go
I'm on the right train but the wrong tracks
Trying not to derail
Verse 11
Nothing is like it was before
I know not who I am anymore
Chasing something that's behind me
When will I be set free?
Verse 12
Broken promises left to mend
Burning the candle at both ends
No light to find my way back home
'Cause I don't know where "home" is
And without you, I'm hopeless
