This time
I'm done with always screwing up
I'm sick of one direction down
I'm a broken picture frame
[My whole world twisted inside out]
Screaming
Are voices like a hurricane
[Telling me to wake up
Get out of bed
Put your feet on the floor]
There's fresh air out the door

Prechorus:
And I've been acting so pathetic
Knocking around like a ball on a string
It's taking time for me to get it
I'm ready and willing to do anything
To make it up to you

Chorus I:
My arms are hurting so bad from being so empty
My heart weighs like a ton 'cause it feels so heavy
I'm standing here all alone
Wishing that I could've known
You just can't walk away
From the damage

Last time
Playing with a broken string
It don't matter no one's listening
'Cause losing you has made me see
I've gotta change
Gotta blame it
[All on me]

Prechorus

Chorus I

Chorus II:
My eyes may as well be blind if I just can't see you
(If I just can't see you)
My hands may as well be tied 'cause I just can't touch you
(Touch you)

Before
The smoke can really clear away
From fires
I started yesterday
[I know I've gotta find a way
Somehow I've gotta find a way to wake up]
From the damage

Chorus I

Chorus II

I'm standing here all alone
Wishing that I could've known
You just can't walk away
From the damage

I'm standing here all alone
Wishing that I could've known
You just can't walk away
From the damage

    General Comment"My arms are hurting so bad from being so empty" - I love that line. I think it describes perfectly how so many people feel. I hated O-Town because of how they got their start (auditioning nsync wannabes on a tv show? now that's pathetic) But I think they really redeemed themselves on their 2nd album. Taking creative control has worked out good for them, because this is a great song.
