under stars. i watch the sky. as night consumes the daylight. and i recall the sweetest dreams. but red wine helps them fade. here's to another glass. i need it to displace. the emptiness i cannot swallow. i tried to cleanse these guilty hands. but the stains they won't leave. i tried to rush to your defense. but i tripped on my weak words. don't terrorize. my senseless whines will fade. my eyes complain. my mouth stays shut. i leave you in your bed. i pulled your teeth. to hear the truth. the truth is it still kills me to this day. but don't terrorize. my senseless whines will fade. into another glass. it's too soon for today. today i feel about okay. i wait for these nights to come to an end. so i can feel at home. i tried to rush to your defense. but these guilty hands they shake. don't terrorize. my senseless whines will fade. if i could split my heart in two. i'd give the beating half to you. if these words never rise above us. i swear i'd slit my wrists for you. if life becomes so cold and dim. that to breathe is to live. then i'll breathe for you. but i won't repent. i won't repent for what i did to make this break. here's to another glass. i need it to replace the emptiness. i cannot take away

    General CommentThis song definately has a suicidal tone to it. I think it's about someone who's trying to deal with a friend who attempted suicide, and neither of them are all too stable. It seems to say basically "hey, i'm fucked up and you're fucked up, but i'm going to help you however I can anyway." It's about giving your all when you've got nothing to give just to help someone you love. The end of this song is brilliant though. "If i could split my heart in 2 I'd give the beating half to you..."

    General CommentWell... to add to that.

    I think that this song is about how they blame something they did/ didnt do for there losing someone. To suicide or whatever. And the guilt and lonliness has turned them to alcohol.
    Or maybe there drink problem made the person leave them. I think its the first idea though.

    Yeah that and, beautiful

    General Commentit's about drinking away someone who is gone.

    maybe by suicide.

    "if i could split my heart in two, i'd give the beating half to you. if these words never rise above us, i swear i'd slit my wrists for you. if life becomes so cold and dim that to breathe is to live, then i'll breathe for you."

    this song makes me ache.

    General Commentmaybe about trying to forget that you did something to ruin a relationship you wish you didn\'t ruin. About the guilt when you realise you are finally getting over it (it\'s too soon for today, today i feel about ok), and about the devotion you still have to someone you\'ve lost.

    This song is so good.
