lyrics

I saw you next to me
It must have been in a dream
Your arms were so long
Wrapping themselves all around me

(Oh, oh, oh) What are you doing?
(No, no, no) Was I that stupid?
(Oh, oh, oh) Where are you going?
(No, no, no) Heading to nowhere

I used to be an optimist,
But ever since we fell apart
All of that has now
Burned away into the air

(Oh, oh, oh) Embers are floating
(No, no, no) Hoping they come back soon
(Oh, oh, oh) Sparks are rising
(No, no, no) Up into the clouds

Go ahead and make that wish
Sixteen candles
Sixteen candles
Go and make mistakes with it
Sixteen candles
Sixteen candles

Your fangs never hurt me
They only killed me softly
Apologies don't need acceptance,
That's why this is cutting so much deeper
Deeper,
Deeper

Go ahead and make that wish
Sixteen candles
Sixteen candles
Go and make mistakes with it
Sixteen candles
Sixteen candles
