"Oblivion" as written by Tommy Stewart, Pete Murray, Neil Matthew Godfrey and John L. Fahnestock....
I can't hear a sound
Can't see the world
Can't feel the ground
I can't look around
Can't see the faces
Through this cloud

I fade away into Oblivion
Every second I'm alive without you
I fade away into Oblivion
Every second I'm alive without you

I can't sleep a wink
Can't shut you out
Can't even think
I can't look away
From the train wreck
Of mistakes

I fade away into Oblivion
Every second I'm alive without you
I fade away into Oblivion
Every second I'm alive without you

I am barely breathing
The grip around my neck
I am barely living
And I won't make it back
You, without you
(Every second I'm alive) without you
Without you
(Every second I'm alive) without you

I fade away into Oblivion
Every second I'm alive without you
I fade away into Oblivion
Every second I'm alive without you

    General CommentThis is a love/break-up ballad. The speaker uses metaphors to explain how incomplete their life is without their significant other.

    "I can't sleep a wink
    Can't shut you out
    Can't even think
    I can't look away
    From the train wreck
    Of mistakes"

    Eventually the speaker reveals that the only way that they can overcome their problems is to get their lost love back.

    "I am barely breathing
    The grip around my neck
    I am barely living
    And I won't make it back
    You, without you"

    Overall, this is an awesome song. It's quite catchy and the lyrics are amazing. However, standing outside your ex's window with a radio would still be ill-advised.
