up and down just to see you smile with a cup of tea. i've seen better days. today i thought about giving up, given up on me, but the comfort still remains. a walk in the rain passing by your window, i asked myself, "is she dead?" holding you in my arms crying in the rain, i said nothing. i woke up by a phone call from my mom, i tried not to cry. say to me it's okay, she said it's okay then i remembered that i saw your eyes and not the rain. your family cried, your friends all cried, i finally cried when i realized what love is. sitting on the bathroom floor asking "why?" i think your stronger for wanting to stay alive. all of the sudden i thought you were leaving, didn't you know you gave me something to believe in? you kept me breathing when my times were down. the last time i saw you i took a good look at the sky. and you told me something. i should have said something, then i remembered that i saw your eyes and not the rain.

    General CommentThis is a great song to listen to while you driving down the highway. Just watch out for those speeding tickets. There is something about SBB that just makes you get angry and want to change things in your life. This song is really awesome because of the opening bass and lyrics, "up and down just to see you smile with a cup of tea"!

    General Commentyah this song is great, is the girl dead, or is was she going to die but didn't? I can't tell, i mean he says "i woke up by a phone call from my mom, i tried not to cry."
    but he also says "i think your stronger for wanting to stay alive." so is she dead or alive?

    General Commentyah, i wasn't sure if the girl was alive either, i wonder if it's based off of the singers life or something, maybe his girlfriend getting hit by a car or something.

    General CommentI think the girl tried to commit suicide but failed.
    'then i remembered that i saw your eyes and not the rain'
    ^she had a problem.. she was sad.
    'sitting on the bathroom floor asking "why?" i think your stronger for wanting to stay alive.'
    I think the "why?" is directed to the girl, why she tried to kill herself.
    Beautiful lyrics.
