Wake up your life
You may never get the chance to make things right
Rather than lie
Take a moment to reflect on what's gone by
It's a mistake
There's no reason I should be so full of guilt
Significant break
So you severed all the ties that we have built

All I know, even though
Tried to give you what was left of me
But it was not enough
Didn't think about the rest of me
That it was not enough
Tried my hardest with the best of me
But it was not enough
Tried to give you what was left of me
But it was not enough

All mixed up inside
And it's easy to forget what we should be
It's useless to hide
I can see to the heart of your insecurity
All of this time
Blaming others for the cause of what we've lost
Nothing sublime
I must overcome no matter what the cost

All I know, even though
Tried to give you what was left of me
But it was not enough
Didn't think about the rest of me
That it was not enough
Tried my hardest with the best of me
But it was not enough
Tried to give you what was left of me
But it was not enough

Please give back what s not yours to have
It's the only thing that I've got left
Never was enough to satisfy
And I'm left empty

All I know, even though
Tried to give you what was left of me
But it was not enough
Didn't think about the rest of me
That it was not enough
Tried my hardest with the best of me
But it was not enough
Tried to give you what was left of me

Tried to give you what was left of me
But it was not enough
Didn't think about the rest of me
That it was not enough
Tried my hardest with the best of me
But it was not enough

    General CommentSad song about giving all of yourself to someone and finding that they'll take it, but its not enough to win them over. Hurts like hell to listen to this, but its like an anti-depressant in a healing process so it works out okay.

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song off their new CD. It's a little slower than I'm used to from Flaw, but they make a great song here. The chorus is what really makes it. I'm sure this song speaks to anyone who's had a relationship fail.

    General Commentbeautiful bloody song.

    this one is probably my favourite, next to decide.

    slow, but emotion is conveyed nonetheless.
