Yesterday I walked away. Put up my flag.
It changed your face. Your smile decayed.
From what I said.
The smile just melted off your face
and stained your shirt.
It burned a hold into your chest. Looks like it hurt.
You turned away to save your face, but to no avail.
Still have the marks
of flesh and blood on my carpet.
The smile just melted off your face
and stained your shirt.
It burned a hole into your chest. Looks like it hurt.
You turned away to save your face, but to no avail.
Still have the marks
of flesh and blood on my carpet.
The smile just melted off your face
and stained your shirt.
It burned a hole into your chest. Looks like it hurt.
I didn't say anything.
Just watched you melt.
Just watched you melt away.
Yeah, I know I don't deserve you.
Yesterday I watched you leave 10 seconds too late. Yesterday.

    General Commentis it just me, or do the first 10 or 15 seconds sound a lot like Bad Religion? i think it's pretty sweet, of course the song changes, but all in all, it adds a new flavor to the Movielife's already-great sound

    General Commentgreat song.

    i think it's about a guy who leaves a friend or girlfriend stranded in the middle of a crisis. he just turns the other way on him/her and now he's apologizing for it.
