These words roll of my tongue like second nature.
But I’m far from my womb, and you know I’m far from you.
So when do I come back to you?
Was this already written or have I fallen so far…
I can’t tell the light from the dark.

I thought you had me forever.
But I’m sure you thought the same about me.
And I’m sorry, so sorry.

These dreams run through my head that frolic through some tube of my brain.
I’m going insane, I’ve forgotten my name.
So I’ll use yours, like a dropped friend I wish I never left.
I wish I never left you. I wish I never left you.
I can’t tell the light from the dark.

I thought you had me forever.
But I’m sure you thought the same about me.
And I’m sorry, so sorry.

Winter’s come early this year.
Like a bird in the rain, I’ve tortured my everything.

The rain falls, and I never meant to leave you standing.

    General Commentstandard screamo love song? or something deeper?
    I think it's deepr. Knowing the strong CHristian beleifs of this band I reckon this:

    "These words roll of my tongue like second nature."
    Seems to be a common occurence then. Repeated a lot?

    "But I’m far from my womb, and you know I’m far from you"
    Turned back on faith, religion, w/e, screwed up in some way or other

    "Was this already written or have I fallen so far…"
    Predestination, inevitability, is it too late to turn back?

    "I thought you had me forever.
    But I’m sure you thought the same about me.
    And I’m sorry, so sorry."
    Commenting on how he thought he was safe and secure. And apologising. Interesting.

    "So I’ll use yours, like a dropped friend I wish I never left.
    I wish I never left you. I wish I never left you.
    I can’t tell the light from the dark."

    Keeping up appearances, doing the same old things, lying to self. Experessing regret. And admitting blindness. Unable to see.

    Interesting. Seems depressing.

    Or, it cud just be another screamo song. Either way, it rocks out. The vocals are eexcellent. The combo of harmonic voice and cathartic screaming. I love it.

    General CommentIt's talking aboud falling away from God. Knowing that God is the one thing he should have held on to and he let him go....
    he is saying sorry for letting God go...

    he knows its not too late to turn back... but sometimes it feels like you screwed up too much and everyone on earth wont forgive you so you doubt God will... in the end you realise he will... coz he is love...
