did you dig me up this morning
from underground, it's where you left me, oh
and your eyes leave me without recognition
know that all the idle skys have become to me
who you used to be

hold your breath
you know how long
do what you can
too forget you were wrong
is it ok if i dont care anymore
we give up sometimes
and i guess that should be
good enough for me

I hope you see more of yourself than
you were ready for
all the things that you are now
and how good things were before
and now you left us
and pushed us so far behind

hold your breath
you know how long
do what you can
too forget you were wrong
is it ok if i dont care anymore
we give up sometimes
and i guess that should be
good enough for me

why are you giving up
why wont you stand your ground
why are you giving up
why wont you stand your ground

hold your breath
you know how long
do what you can
too forget you were wrong
is it ok if i dont care anymore
we give up sometimes
and i guess that should be
good enough for me

    General Commentit sounds like it's a break up .. but i dont' think it's between him and a girl .. it sounds like it's between his parents .. like his mom or dad walked out on them .. that's just what i got out of it

    General CommentThis song is so amazing. I can truly say I'm almost in love with it. I think he's talking about giving up in general in the chorus... but like you said, maybe a divorce between his family. He feels like he doesn't know why people have to give up on everything and not work at it and try.

    General CommentIts about a him and his girlfriend breaking up and her pretending to not recognise him and leaving him in the past, but beneath all of that he still remembers her as who she used to be, but he's about to give up on getting the relationship to work but he's questioning his actions because he can see how good things used to be between them, he hopes she will learn from this mistake and come back.

    .... Much like the situation I'm in now, what I love about name taken's music is it all relates so well to my life and it's helpful through the hard times when the entire world seems to be working against yourself, I hope you can love me again someday... Chloe...
