Don’t wait on me, I’ll catch up soon.
I’m terrified but I’m trying to be brave for you.
They say we climb to not feel small
But darling, we’re pushing up just for the fall.
We’re never ever coming back down the way we came
We’re never ever coming back the same.

Scream bombs away, keep your eyes open.
We’ll never be this young again, this is our moment.
But I’m not afraid, deep down I know it.
You can’t always run and play it safe
You gotta jump just to fall into place.

Don’t wait on me, I’ll catch my breath
I’d look up but to see the to I’d break my neck
They say we’ll die, these wounds won’t heal
but we’ll reply, you gotta hurt just to know its real.

Meek and cautious, a life held hostage
There’s more for you and I, I cross my heart and hope to die
Let’s just stay like this, just two foolish kids
So caught up in their pretty world
They don’t know what it means to crash and burn

Scream bombs away and we’ll fall forever.
