I could lose myself forever in your eyes. These fluorescent lights disturb my slumber. I could dream of you for an eternity because with you, there is no such thing as time. Hours seem like minutes, days seem like weeks and this past week has been the best year of my life. Thank you for giving me all that you have, because it's all that I have. My presence is the only present I can give right now. Merry Christmas, may your dreams come true. The only thing I want this year is you. I hate the awkward emptiness. The feeling of nothing drives nails into my chest cavity. Thoughts become everything; I can't sleep or even breathe. Silence is painful but your lips can heal all wounds. These bandages are meaningless. Covering battle scars from previous wars. With none of them won, I finally found a place to lay my head, to lay my heart. The impossible task of learning how to breathe for the second time. The depth of your eyes takes away my breath and makes me feel alive. I'll never breathe the same again, I'll never think the same again.

    General Commentwow... I can't believe someone got a hold of this song... we wrote it about a year and a half ago but never played it live... these lyrics also were the original lyrics to the guitar part of "the reality of fiction" but they didn't fit as well so we took reality's lyrics and stuck them in there... we're thinking about re-writing reality of fiction with these lyrics only modified and now I'm thinking the title would be good too.

    General CommentI emailed the band about this song today. These lyrics are so beautiful. I haven't felt this way about a song (without hearing it) in a very long time. So pretty...
