Falling away from you always seems so tragic in my mind
I hear that you're doing well now
Things I wish I could have heard from you
But it's been so long since the first time
We tried, oh but anyway...

All my friends say hello
The phone rings, as soft sheets and daylight surround me
She's gone, they tell me. Are you listening?
For the life of me I can't see
Through this haze of sleepless dreaming

Light breaks, the morning shades wake but rise no more
I could have called her the night before empty broken promises lost
I never said goodbye
I never had the time
I never said goodbye

For the life of me I can't see through this haze of sleepless dreaming

Light breaks, the morning shades wake but rise no more
I should have called her the night before you were broken
Now everything's lost
Everything seems lost
All I see in my dreams...

    General CommentNobody has commented because it is not on their album and nobody has heard it. (I have and I can definitely see why it was excluded from the album. It's rough and sounds a bit sloppy.)

    General Commentman. I've loved emery for a while now, but I can't deal with this song. It freaking isn't anywhere near the level of greatness that every other song of theirs has earned...

    General Commenti think this is a great song, nothing compared to fractions or walls, but it's pretty good. i heard it on tooth and nail's album- a near fatal fall (4.99 @ hot topic). it's an awesome cd.

    General Commenti think it's about an ex-girlfriend who the singer is still having mixed feelings about. he doesn't know if he wants to be friends or more than friends (again) with her and he's obsessing over it a little.

    My InterpretationI like this song.. It's a bit different but when you /really/ listen to it it's good.

    I think that his girlfriend has left him and he never got to say things he wanted to and for some reason she died. 'She's gone' being not just.. gone.. but gone. For good.

    Which is why he said he should have said goodbye and he should have called before she was 'broken'
    Dunno. That's what I think [:
