light beams through window
streams into my eyes
explodes like red balloons
as it reminds me of you
so long ago

wind blows through
a hole in the roof
brings your perfume like lillies
to me
and all i can do
is remember you

when was the last time
i held you all through the night?
feels like a gillion years
and i don't wanna wait more
to find you is to lose you
what is that for?
tell me

when was the last time
i held you all through the night?
never a worry would
run through my heart like a knife
feels like a gillion years
and i don't wanna wait more
to find you is to lose you
what is that for?
one more night and i might never
know who you are
tell me

when was the last time
i held you all through the night?
never a worry would
run through my heart like a knife
when was the last time
i held you all through the night?
never a worry would
run through my heart like a knife
tomorrow is much too late
i need you now
be my life
tomorrow is much too late
i need you now

    General Commenti like the song, but i think it could be so much better if chris' voice wasn't so fucking dead. i mean, i got used to it sounding a little girly, but on the entire new album, he hardly has any emotion behind his voice. it's just a fucking robot singing. that said, i don't think it's a bad song.

    General Commenthaha, "fucken dead." I don't know why that made me laugh. Anyway, this song is so beautiful, and the little guitar solo is, my opinion, all the emotion the song needs. but, yeah, I have to admit that chris' voice was better the way it was, but I can honestly live with him singing the way he sings now. it's not too bad.

    General CommentI like the jazzy guitar in this song, but that's just about the only thing on this new album i appreciate. I've seen STD in shows back when they were good, when chris just sang and didn't act like a moron. Go to certaintragedy.com and download some of their old videos of shows they'd play with songs from can't slow down and through being cool...that was their golden age.

    General Commenti love this song also. i think it's the best on in reverie. and i do agree the guitar solo rocks. i always crank my stereo up when it gets to that part. and when i saw std in lawrence a couple of months ago, they sang this song last and it sounded just like the album. chris really got into the solo and seemed possessed. it was awesome.

    General CommentThis entire album is so different from anything I've heard from them that it shocked me, but I still like STD...I totally fell in love with this song. Their lyrics are always meaningful and their imagery is always way vivid/crazy beautiful especially in "she." Saves The Day will always be my favorite band.

    General CommentThis is surely a more difficult to digest record. It's truly different to any older stuff, even when they did made a big change from TBC to SWYA. The first time I heard it It was a total let down, but after 2 or 3 listens I must admit this album got me....This is the best song of the album and I don't thing chris voice laks emotion, I just think the emotion is focused in different directions now. And at the end he sings "I need you now be my light"..not my life...
