She wrote it in only an hour for her video called "The 1 Hour Song Challenge (yikes)". It is exclusively released for download on her Patreon.

Background

After being inspired by her friends Andrew Huang and Rob Scallon, Malinda decided to do her version of this challenge.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm not the one who bends to your beck and call
I'm not the one who catches you when you fall, oh
I'm not the one who says " I love you" when nothing else is left to say
I'm just the one that you let get away

[Pre-Chorus]
And I ran like the wind from your suffocating hand
'Cause I'm not the one to live the lie you planned

[Chorus]
I'll jump to the moon
I'll play in the sky
I'll run my hands through the northern lights, and let my tears run dry
'Cause what was ours is nothing more
And we can't go back to what we were before
Before

[Verse 2]
So she's the one, lying with you at night
And she's the one who never fled from your sight
But I'm just praying she'll soon find a way

[Pre-Chorus]
To run like the wind from your suffocating hand
'Cause no one should have to live the lie you planned

[Chorus]
I'll jump to the moon
I'll play in the sky
I'll run my hands through the northern lights, and let my tears run dry
'Cause what was ours is nothing more
And we can't go back to what we were before

[Bridge]
So shut me out
See if I care
I'm lookin' right through ya
Like you were never even there (never even there)

[Chorus]
I'll jump to the moon
I'll play in the sky
I'll run my hands through the northern lights, and let my tears run dry
'Cause what was ours is nothing more
And we can't go back to where we were before
Before
