lyrics

You take what you learn
And you burn till it's gone
You light what is dark
And you keep moving on
‘Till it stops or you start
To not feeling strong
You can fight but don't try
To pretend that it's not

Coming on like cancer
Coming on like cancer

When you live on your own
You will know what you’re not
And the small bit of faith
That you had long forgot

When you try to deny
For so long, who you are
And you can’t see the black
Through the light of the stars

Coming on like cancer
Coming on like cancer

When I finally decided not to lie
And I woke up where you are
I could see that fire burning
Lonely in your eyes
That had been lit from the start
From the start
From the start

Coming on like cancer
Coming on like cancer
Coming on like cancer
Coming on like cancer
