Since day one, you've been away
And since then you...
You've made me stay
Alone in a world where I'd like to hear
The words of approval ringing in my ear

Cause I don't ask for much
Yet I want it all
I've gained nothing from this
You want to see me fall

What we will stick to our passions
We'll keep playing far and away
Alone in a world where I'd like to see
The smile on your face that means security

Cause I don't ask for much
Yet i want it all
I've gained nothing from this
You want to see me fall

Don't live life by the norm' in society
Do what you have to do to keep you happy
So what if it doesn't matter to them at all
It makes sense to you keep on, don't stall

Cause I don't ask for much
Yet I want it all
I've gained nothing from this
You want to see me fall

    General Commenti love this song...
    it seems like its about wanting to make somoene proud...even though they may be disappointed in what youre doing.
    thinking about it from their point of view belives me to think its about wanting to play in a band, even though it's not the norm..but its their passion and it makes them happy..even though it doens't make sense to anyone else..:
    "What we will stick to our passions
    We'll keep playing far and away"
    "Do what you have to do to keep you happy
    So what if it doesn't matter to them at all
    It makes sense to you keep on"

    they want to hear approval from maybe the ones they love, but they just want to see them fall and fail.
    i dunn..

    General CommentBeautiful acoustic song, I actually go this song from the album: 'Punk Goes Acoustic'. I highly recommend it.
    This song almost talks about what one person does for another and never gets anything back- but wants to get something back.
