in the rain. i see your makeup. slowly dissolving on your cheek. in a way. you're like a circle. constant and closed off from me. it's time that i wrote this song. it's about you. i surrender to you. in the wake of the conversation. i'm devoted to you. i surrender to you. and i claim this to be the first day. i can wake up without you in my head. so we play songs of disaster. but the tone of the music will change. it's time that i wrote this song. it's about you. i surrender to you. in the wake of conversations. i'm devoted to you. i surrender to you. i lost you. i lost you. i lost you dear

    General CommentI love the line, "in a way. you're like a circle. constant and closed off from me." It's special. I know what he means.

    General Commenti just love the tone of this song. it seems to me to be about letting go, but also being alright with that decision.

    so often songs of this nature tend to be fueled by pain and angst, but the white octave pull off something different. it is actually rather uplifting, as if to say maybe things will be better after the departure.

    personally, i really appreciate a song of loss that isn't so heart-breakingly tragic, and actually eases my torture instead of antagonizing it.

    General CommentMy favorite line is "And I claim this to be the first day I can wake up without you in my head." It's so emotional and I can relate perfectly. This truly is a beautiful song. I think it's about getting sick of taking abuse and letting go.

    General Commentthe \"i claim this to be the first day i can wake up without you in my head\" lyric is perfect. and the \"i\'m devoted to you, i surrender to you\" which would usually be about falling IN love seems here to just be about releasing yourself. The song feels to me like letting out a breath you don\'t know you\'ve been holding...
