I could cry,
my time has come and i am stupid and forever sad,

Is it you god telling me to go away?
Is it you god telling me to leave this place?
But i thought i could combine with you,
And i need you all the time,
And i thought it was ok with you,
Her mask is in my dreams at night,
But i thought i could escape with you,
Planet asylum keeps me down,

I could cry,
my time has come and i am stupid and forever sad,
I could cry,
my time has come and i am stupid forever,

You amaze me more than you could know,
and i need you all the time,
Laying stars you make me dream of bliss,
And ive loved you all the time.

    General Commentthis song means so much to me...it also depresses the hell out of me for certain reasons. It's about realising that a relationship that both people thought could work for a time can't work in my opinion. That's probably just the way i see it cos it happened to me...

    General Commenther mask is an awesome song. it is so powerful and shows that inme isn't all about growling and screaming.
    i honestly thought this song was about god when i first heard it, but no one else seems to agree with me. "is it u GOD telling me to leave this place" and when he sings "and i thought it was ok with you," it was if Dave was asking god if he didn't mind him loving this girl so much!
    maybe i read it all wrong but that is what i got from it any way.

    General CommentThis is just the best InMe song ever. They played this when I went to see them live, and at the time I could relate to it so much. Amazing show, this was just a nice change from the usual InMe stuff which is also extremely good.

    "Laying stars you make me dream of bliss,
    And ive loved you all the time"

    Beautiful...

    General CommentIt makes me think of a guy who thought his girlfriend wanted to sleep with him but really she didn't,
    "and i thought it was ok with you"
    and now she won't have anything to do with him and he's freaking out because he loves her and all he wants is to make her happy but she thinks all he wants is sex. And he's getting upset and asking God what it's all about because he had no clue why she won't even listen to him and how he misread the signs so badly. And he knows she still loves him really
    "her mask"
    and he knows he hurt her and he hates himself for it. "I am stupid and forever sad"
    ...crazy theory or believable?

    General CommentI relate to this song cos when me and my ex were still friends he said that he thought he liked one girl and I got deppresed and didn't talk to him for ages cos I loved him.. one day a friend told me that he wanted me to listen this song cos it expressed just how he felt, that he needed and loved me... so I guess, it's about some guy who broke the heart of the one he cared most... and now hates himself for doing that... and this song is like a way to say sorry to her.. that he still loves her
    Anyway.. this is one of the best inme songs.. I love it so much ^^

    General CommentThis is the best song ever, its my favourite, Dave has the best voice its beautiful!
    I think its about a boy who has parted from someone and is deverstated, he doesn't know why it has ended this way, " Is it you God telling me to leave this place"
    He could have made a mistake " I am stuoid forever sad" he has to leave due to something he has done and regrets it.
    When Dave sings " You amaze me more than you could know" it's so emotinal the way he sings it even though they are simple lyrics, his voice sounds even better live.
    Its really sad as it shows how he loves someone so much but he can't be with someone.
