I know the sink and the rot gut feeling...
"Is this happening to me?"
and i know what it's like to want to end it all

Driving home between the lines in the road,
I swear that i've been through this before.
When nothing makes much sense except for doing yourself in
but razor blades are hard to hold

When we're hit in the heart with
Problems that won't shift
It's hard to admit we are afraid
When we're hit in the head with
Unanswered questions that repeat:
"How could i live after this day?"

We can take the hits and grow tougher
Collect ourselves to live longer
and find there is no need to be afraid
because we all have more to offer
when we struggle to cope with
whatever it takes to make the days

We all have what it takes to make the days
we all have what it takes to make it home
We all have what it takes

    General Commenti think hot water music saved more than a few peoples lives. including my own. and anybody can be a hmw fan. even if they dont know what the songs mean, as long as the songs make the listener feel good. thats all that matters

    General CommentFirst of all they NEED NO CREDIT THEY KNOW THEY ARE GREAT!!!!! I am shure they dont want to much credit THATS CALLED BEING MAIN STREAM !! And if hwm ever goes mainstream(WITCH IT WONT)I would personaly kill every UNWORTHY person at the show. As for this song, I owe alot to HWM for writing this song. It saved my sisters life several times. And one more thing this song is pritty self explanitory so i wont bother to explain what it means to me. You wouldent understand. But if you dont understand what it means to you then do hwm a favor find another band to listen to PS.)thanks roller queen for clerifying thouse lirics for other people, But not for me i knew every word
