Everyday is a day that I can say
I keep my head above the waves

The news I just received
So shamelessly deceived
The truth just seems to hurt
A little more and more

I guess it all depends
The stupid life and stupid friends
Are you asking me to leave

The beauty I have seen I cannot keep
It seems the more I dream
The less I want to sleep

And then I go
All alone I'll have you know
It's only yours but even so
You can save my life again

Claw away circuits break
Multiply your worst mistake
As we complicate the end

Am I just giving up
Do I just sing for sound
Too smart too sick
Too weak to settle down

Lies just cut and paste
The sharp and bitter taste
Guarding I don't talk much anymore

The hopeless hearts
Rules that we can steal
We have more hurt inside
Than we could ever feel

Well I wonder
All alone I'll have you know
It's only yours but even so
You can save my life again

Claw away circuits break
Multiply your worst mistake
As we complicate the end

Dream of glass and window sills
Sea of alcohol and pills
And I wonder if you could save my life

You say you don't want to live
Is there nothing I can give
To help you sleep tonight

    General CommentI think this is about the indecision involved in making important life decisions like marriage and a family, and how depression and drugs really make it all the much harder to make a decision.
