Its time to say a word
Say it like you mean it
She spoke with a toung that hurt
As my eyes pull back hoping for the end
One too many conflicts ending battles for a friend

Say another word
And ill stand on the floor
So keep talking down to me
Your not only losing me
Your losing whats in store

Im trying to stay awake
(So I cant have you)
When I go
When I get home
Im trying to stay awake
(So I cant have you)
Over the phone
So I can tell the truth
Tell the truth

Something keeps on getting in my way
But you knew Im tired of summer holiday
Just wait one minute more
Cause my heart is halfway torn
And your allready gone
Your allready gone

2, 3, GO!

Im trying to stay awake
(So I cant have you)
When I go
When I get home
Im trying to stay awake
(So I cant have you)
Over the phone
So I can tell the truth

Say another word
Face first on the floor
Keep talking down to me
Losing what was almost ment to be

Im trying to stay awake
(So I cant have you)
When I go
When I get home
Im trying to stay awake
(So I cant have you)
Over the phone
So I can tell the truth
Tell the truth

    General CommentIsn't this song called Almost There, Going Nowhere? That's what Ken called it last time I saw them in concert, and it's what I found it under on Audiogalaxy.

    Really good song, btw.

    General CommentI love this song a lot. I didn't mean to DLed it on KaZaA but I did because I clicked the wrong thing and now I'm happy that I did. I think that Ken really sings this song really good. I like the way he sings it also. I like the lyrics also that go with this song. I can really relate to it. I think that this song is pretty well sang! Also it has gr8 instrumental. I can't wait till Starting Line comes around here on tour. I hope that I'll be able to see them again. And i can't wait 4 the CD to come out. I love The Starting Line they have so much good music waiting for plp to hear and everyone will love them if people would just go deep down in Emo and find out about this bands gr8 talents! HeHe! Love Starting Line to death. They r truely one of the best bands around!:)

    General CommentI think the first verse is wrong...Insead of "She spoke with a toung that hurt" I think its "She spoke with a tone of hurt" and also when it says "One too many conflicts ending battles for a friend" I think it says "One too many condescending battles for a friend" I could be wrong, but thats what I hear. Does anyone else agree?
    btw The Starting Line is awesome, I love those boys.
