Hot dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to lifeIf I fear for the selfish pain, it was worth it every timeHold still right before we crash 'cause we both know how this endsA clock ticks 'till it breaks your glass and I drown in you again'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't needChasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know whyIf our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?Walk on through a red parade and refuse to make amendsIt cuts deep through our ground and makes us forget all common senseDon't speak as I try to leave 'cause we both know what we'll chooseIf you pull and I push too deep then I'll fall right back to you'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't needChasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know whyIf our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?Why are you my clarity?Why are you my remedy?Why are you my clarity?Why are you my remedy?If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?
