ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES
by Haley Jonay

with you i'm whole
with you it's real
and for the first time in forever
i can feel something

the stars they shine
and just like your eyes
there's a black hole
hiding right behind them

but you've got wings
you were made to fly
but what happens when
a bird runs out of sky

you say i'm remarkable but
honey that's you
amidst the haunted dreams
and empty trees
i'm staring at you
and you're my favorite view

so lovely you are my perfect day
so why did you have to go away
like a beautiful storm you left your traces
all the right things, all the bright places
you wandered too far inside your own mind
you got lost and left me behind
like a beautiful storm you left your traces
all the right things, all the bright places

they don't understand and
they don't know sometimes it's easier
to sink than float but don't loose sight
of tomorrow's shore because
i love you oh there's so much
left to explore

but the darkness won
it stole your light
but that doesn't mean you didn't
put up a hell of a fight

you say i'm remarkable but
honey that's you
amidst the haunted dreams
and empty trees
i'm staring at you
and you're my favorite view

so lovely you are my perfect day
so why did you have to go away
like a beautiful storm you left your traces
all the right things, all the bright places
you wandered too far inside your own mind
you got lost and left me behind
like a beautiful storm you left your traces
all the right things, all the bright places

i am in pieces
oh i am in pieces
in pieces

is there anything i could have done
to change your mind is there
anyway i can go back in time
and fight the monsters in your head
there's so much more i could have said

so lovely you are my perfect day
so why did you have to go away
like a beautiful storm you left your traces
all the right things, all the bright places
you wandered too far inside your own mind
you got lost and left me behind
like a beautiful storm you left your traces
all the right things, all the bright places

now here i stand
under sky so blue
i close my eyes and
you are here too

    This song is so so so beautiful! I just really wish they would put that in the movie soundtrack. I think these lyrics are perfect. Funny thing about it: this song apperead to ne on Discover Weekly by Spotify. I listened to it and saved it bc I loved it. But I still haven't read the book by that time (it was like maybe 6 months ago). I finished it this week and then I saw this song and I was link "omg maybe this song is about the book" and then I listened to it and started crying. This is just so beautfiul. Thanks for making this.

    Hey there, can someone please tell me if this song is based in the book by Jennifer Niven or if it was the other way around OR if the song and the book don't have a connection at all? I am doing a school project about the book, so it'd be super helpful if anyone answered :) you can also e-mail me: luisekatharina@gmx.de Thank you in advance!
