"When I Drown (CD Version)" as written by and Paul Stuart/einziger Fried....
Listen to me
When I say
Beautiful time
Is fading away
When will I wake
From this dream?
It's a never-ending painful scene

I rise up when I drown
The water is thicker
I rise up when I drown
And swim to the surface

Thinking of you
Brings me down
How could you pull the plug
And replace me with someone else?

I rise up when I drown
The water is thicker
I rise up when I drown
And swim to the surface

Have you ever wondered about me?
Did you lose your feelings?
Or forget what my name is?
Have you ever wondered?
Well, have you?

I rise up when I drown
The water is thicker
I rise up when I drown
And swim to the surface
I rise up when I drown

    General CommentWow... what an amazing song.

    This song is like me wondering about a girl i used to/still do like... i'm asking myself if she ever still thinks about me, and when will i ever be over her?

    General Comment This song makes me cry whenever I hear it, and it takes a lot for a song to make me cry =/ But I guess I understand it now more then I did when I first got the cd.
    I'd have to agree with whitepony, except replace the girl with boy..er yeah

    General CommentSo much said with so little words. I love this song even though I hate the subject. I don't fully understand the chorus. It still hits close. Girl ditches guy. Guy doesn't believe and can't move on. Guy is left confused and with unanswered questions.

    General Commentladiesgringo hit it right on the spot. Guy is left confused and with unanswered questions. Then he says "have you ever wonder about me...." he cant get her out of his mind and still has some hope. I serious know this feeling. NOTICE TO GIRLS..dont leave a guy in question. Be honest. By the way did I say I really love this song.
