One more chance



The dust is settling down at last
The survivors wondering why they're alive
When the world has ended
And they've lost everything worth living for

An eerie silence surrounds them
A pressure building behind their eyes
As realization hit them sharp like sun rays
But they've lost the power to cry

Oh was there no easier way to end it all
Oh was there no easier way to start again
Oh was there no easier way to start again
Oh was there no easier way, easier way

They are tired, but they deserve no rest
They started it all, and now it has ended
They are left all alone, all enmity forgotten
Hoping for one more chance

Oh was there no easier way to end it all
Oh was there no easier way to start again
Oh was there no easier way to start again
Oh was there no easier way, easier way

One more chance to start it all
One more chance to rebuild this world
One more chance to relive the past
One more chance at life

Oh was there no easier way to end it all
Oh was there no easier way to start again
Oh was there no easier way to start again
Oh was there no easier way, easier way
