Car stopped in a clearing
Ribbon of life, it was nearing
I saw the boy break out of his skin
My heart turned over and I crawled in

He cried, Break it up", oh, I don't understand
Break it up, I can't comprehend
Break it up, oh, I want to feel you
Break it up, don't talk to me that way, I'm not listening

Snow started falling
I could hear the angel calling
We rolled on the ground, he stretched out his wings
The boy flew away and he started to sing

He sang, Break it up", oh, I don't understand
Break it up, I can't comprehend
Break it up, oh, I want to feel you
Break it up, don't look at me

The sky was raging, the boy disappeared
I fell on my knees
Atmosphere broke up, the boy reappeared
I cried, Take me please"

Ice, it was shining
I could feel my heart, it was melting
I tore off my clothes, I danced on my shoes
I ripped my skin open and then I broke through

I cried, Break it up" and I understand
Break it up and I want to go
Break it up, oh, please take me with you
Break it up, I can feel it breaking

I can feel it breaking
I can feel it breaking
I can feel, I can feel
I can feel, I can feel

So break it up, now I'm coming with you
Break it up now I'm gonna go
Break it up, oh, feel me, I'm coming

Break it up
Break it up
Break it up
