Oh why cant I be what you need
a new improved version of me
but i'm nothing so good
no i'm nothing
just bones, a lonely ghost burning down songs
of violence of love and of sorrow
i beg for just one more tomorrow
where you hold me down fold me in
deep deep deep in the heart of your sins

I break in two over you
I break in two
And each piece of me dies
And only you can give the breath of life
But you dont see me, you dont...

here i'm in between darkness and light
bleached and blinded by these nights
where im tossing and tortured til dawn
by you, visions of you then youre gone
the shock lifts the red from my face
when i hear someone's taking my place
how could love be so thoughtless, so cruel
when all, all that i did was for you

i break in two over you
i break in two
and each piece of me dies
and only you can give the breath of life
but you dont see me you dont..

i break in two over you
i break in two
and each piece of me dies
and only you can give the breath of life
but you dont see me you don't...

i break in two over you
i break in two over you, over you
i break in two
i would break in two for you
now you see me
now you don't
now you need me
now you don't

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who thinks her boyfriend/some guy doesn't notice her at all, but in the answer to this song he tells her he notices her and loves her...

    With my girlfriend now, i can say these 2 songs went with how we were for awhile

    General CommentSoundtrack to the worse moment of my life. Everything's fine now tho but this song is still awesome. The girl's voice is practically orgasmic. Wish she'd sing me to sleep.

    General CommentIt's very clear what this song is about. This girl is struggling so hard to be everything that her man needs, and in the end she just isn't good enough. The guy has treated her like shit, "all that she did was for him", but his love was so "thoughtless and cruel". He obviously doesn't see her anymore because someone else has taken her place. God, its so heartwrenching. I can relate with this girl, just as im sure many of you can.

    Another thing, don't get me wrong I absolutly love the song "The Fiction We Live", and how he is responding to her despair....but it would've been so much better if she sang another song on the album saying how SHE doesn't need HIM anymore. I mean really, we sit through this song thinking about how bad she has it and wishing her the best. If he doesn't notice her or need her anymore, why is he responding. The man obviously sucks as a person....get back at him, throw it in his face when he wants you back. she doesn't need him.

    General CommentI agree with Boo in the fact that the girl feels as she is not being seen. By looking at this song and its response "The Fiction We Live" you see that both love each other but neither will come out and say it. It seems as though they were once together, but he did something wrong, something that he wants to repair, but still something wrong. She feels a deep loss after leaving him and her heart aches for each second she is without him.

    General CommentOkay I'm sick of you bastards calling this band FATA! How fucking hard is it to say From Autumn To Ashes.
    Anyway in this song Autumn is just trying to get noticed and has fallen in love with some guy and little does she know the same thing has happened to him.

    General CommentSoundgarden... One) It isn't a bastard thing to do to abbreviate the band name. While it's only a few extra letters to have to hit to type From Autumn to Ashes, some people would rather FATA to save time. Two) Their merchadise often has FATA on it, so hush.

    On a brighter note: Love this song. This girl has an awesome voice. She's in a band, too, One True Thing, so you should go to their site (onetruething.net) and listen to their stuff.
