This is the last time I will try to reach
And my guess is that you'll just ignore me

Without a passing glance
Without the slightest sigh
Without moving your hands
Without the softest cry

If I'd say
Go your own way, I'll be with you
Make mistakes and I'll forgive you
Home is waiting here for you when you return

Rain reveals your foundation
And this one's wearing thin
And shifting in the sand

And the water does its damage
With its endless beating pulse
Heralding the end

Without a passing glance
Without the slightest sigh
Without moving your hands
Without the softest cry

If I'd say
Go your own way, I'll be with you
Make mistakes and I'll forgive you
Home is waiting here for you when you return

This is the last time I will try to reach you
And my guess is that you'll just ignore it, just ignore me

Go your own way, I'll be with you
Make mistakes and I'll forgive you
Home is waiting here for you when you return

    General Commenti think everyone can relate to this one...you know that you should just give up on someone, but you just keep giving them one more chance, knowing that you'd take them back in a second.

    what a great song. sigh.

    General CommentI honestly think they coulda picked a better single.

    This song is horrible compared to New Year's Project and Pictures Of Shorelines.

    Eh.

    General Commenti love this song. i agree with gleebs when he or she stated that it's about giving someone another chance even when they know they're just going to screw up. it's like saying do what you want, and no matter how painful it is, i'm always going to be here.

    General CommentThis song rocks. The whole cd is awesome. This song shows love's power even when it is wearing thin. I just wish Chris was still the singer in this band.
