Those who left,
Are not going to come back...
You need gto put that frame down,
Down, from your heart's rack!

I know those were the days you loved,
And now, your smile has become wry...
But what's the point to mourn now,
And what's the point to cry?

Stop hurting yourself,
Stop making your eyes wet...
You have your entire life to live,
Get up! It's not over yet!

Don't lose yourself,
For the one who didn't chose you...
They already ruined your past,
Would you let them ruin your future too?

You need to get up and shine,
Tell them, that without them, you ain't dyin'...
There are million more reasons to be happy,
Tell them, you're up with cryin'!
