we drove these streets heads to shoulders
existing to tell the tales of letting go
and now we're strangled to tears on the fallback farewell
its all in our heads
the faint whispers
i tried to tell myself when its already over
that the reasons found decoys
and this is holding me back
as if to say what you thought you heard
i wish i did
i don't want to feel this pull as this city becomes home without you

    General CommentI think this song is about when you seperate from someone you really care about and struggle with the deep sense of loss that you will undoubtedly go through. "It's all in our heads / the faint whispers" sounds like when you can almost here someone's voice, as if they are right next to you and telling you what you want to hear. But then reality sets in.

    Tell me what you all think.

    General CommentThis is actually my favorite song off of "The Satellite Years".. and whenever I'm in the car with my girlfriend, this definitely gets a ton of play over and over.. along with "The Bending"

    General CommentIt's soft...I love it. I am a sucker for screaming, but when there's songs like this and "Bitter Ending" by Evergreen Terrace...ah, I fall in love.

    General CommentPersonally I think this song is the best on 'The Satellite Years'. Great lyrics and great music. The only problem with hopesfall is that they repeat too much... Now im just waiting for my lyrics to be posted..
