Other versions
Icelandic English

Running out of time, life passes by like a lightning
Crossing every line, feeling the power inside me
Make it, break it and crash, always the last one to give up
Life flies past me so fast, nothing that holds back, I won’t stop
Now, now they will see: I’m ready to break free

Every time you had me hold your hand and hold you close
When there were no complications, no mistakes, we had it all
Though all I had to have to live was your embrace
And there were never any other candidates to take your place

I said I had a need to see the world before me
Surely I thought we’d go hand in hand sharing stories
Around the world, but no, you said I’d go alone
I chose the whole globe, you chose to go home

Is there a reason? Is there anybody who can answer that?
I’ve been trying my best just to guess
I need the sunrise, I’ve only seen the sun before it sets
I’ve told the time so many times but never got replies

If it’s running out on me I’ll lock it in and toss the key
Ask about which songs to sing and a key to sing them in
Climb up to the top of trees to reach the bottom of the sea
Dream as long as I don’t breathe, I sleep to find forgotten dreams

Running out of time, life passes by like a lightning
Crossing every line, feeling the power inside me
Make it, break it and crash, always the last one to give up
Life flies past me so fast, nothing that holds back, I won’t stop
Now, now they will see: I’m ready to break free

Take it in, embrace it, face the fact we would’ve made it
All the way away and back, imagine that, we could’ve been back on track
We can’t go back in time and that’s okay with me
I’d rather have my last tomorrow left to see
Than all my yesterdays repeated

Break down the walls I built (To the ground)
So I can show them all (What I found)

Who I am now (I’m gonna write my name in the clouds)
Who I am now (I’m gonna scream, I’m gonna scream loud)
Who I am now (I’m gonna show, I’m gonna show them now)
I’m gonna show them what I’m made of

Running out of time, life passes by like a lightning
Crossing every line, feeling the power inside me
Make it, break it and crash, always the last one to give up
Life flies past me so fast, nothing that holds back, I won’t stop
Now, now they will see: I’m ready to break free

Feeling the power inside me
Always the last one to give up

Running out of time
Running out of time
I’m ready to break free
