lyrics

Always plagued by vague anxieties
Past regret and fleeting memories
(I didn't know how far I could fall)
(Until I nearly lost it all)

I fly my ship and crash it on the rocks
Waltzing with this ancient paradox
(To know the darkness and the light)
(To walk with them both by my side)

Yes, your heart will break
And only then realize the stakes
Only love can soothe the ache
Chase beauty for beauty's sake

When chaos seems much more than I can stand
A quiet song reminds me who I am
(The way he looks at me)
(The way he makes me believe)

A field of flowers dancing in the wind
The moonlit sky, a distant violin
(Forgives the day its sins)
(Moments of timelessness)

Yes, your heart will break
And only then realize the stakes
Only love can soothe the ache
Only love can soothe the ache
Only love can soothe the ache
I'll chase beauty for beauty's sake
