Your life lives half a nation away,
my heart hurts so.
I believe letting you go was
the biggest mistake of my life.

What did I do?
Alone and confused.
What can I say?
What can I do?

I'm heading the wrong way home.
Knowing alone is alone.
It?s just too difficult
to be just me instead of we.

What did I do?
Alone and confused.
What can I say?
Nothing.

I don?t know where to begin
since you left me for him.
I don?t know where to begin
and you left me for him.
I don?t want to start again,
and I can?t be your friend.
I don?t know where to begin
since you left me for him.

    General CommentThey are very good, yet I seem to be the only person I know who likes them.
    Could it be a long distance relationship that he gave up on? I don't know.

    General Commenta friend of mine bought this because it was advertised as "saves the day meets poison the well", two obviously great bands. lemme tell ya... one huge generic let down. the screaming parts sound exactly like grade (which isn't bad, grade is amazing, but copying another band doesn't get you many points with me) and the singing parts just sound like ultra-polished generic radio friendly pop punk. just my two cents.

    General CommentHm, I like them. I agree with what worthdyingfor said; that it's about a long distance relationship that failed & he regrets letting it fall.

    General CommentI saw these guys live last night. They put on a really great show. They opened, and a lot of people just left after watching them. Anyways, this song is about a friend of theirs who moved to Fall River, Nova Scotia, which is pretty close to where I live. They explained this before the song. If you get a change to see these guys live it's definitely worth it.
