Where was I, when you, left for cold and beaten and worn. If you could, only see, that I was just a little bit torn
My thoughts, escape, when thoughts of you creep back to me. When I, told you, I thought you were just drifting away- I fought, back tears, as you walked away from me. Now I, see that, childhood cannot be the same.

I thought I could give-All that you could take. All I wanted to know: Was that I was your love

And I thought that I
Could hold back the pain
For a longer time
Now I know I was done


I cried when it was gone.. It sank in far too late.. It failed for much too long.. This force that took my heart..

As the time ticks by- And I hold onto
All the thoughts when I Looked at you from here. Looked at you from here...

    General CommentTaken from their webiste [adventwrath.com]. This is what Jack [their lyricist / vocalist] said about this song, considering he wrote it:

    "This was the first song I wrote with the band after replacing the former singer, Mike. This was also the first song I wrote with a full band behind me, so this song holds a special place in my song writing career. I remember hearing the chorus for the first time and I was immediately enthralled, needless to say it is catchy as hell and I wanted to write lyrics to it that reflected that. It originally had a whole different meaning, but it soon became a song about my breakup with a certain someone (Cliché, I know, but ill be damned if it doesn’t mean something.) The whole band considers this song to be a “break song” because we don’t bust our balls playing it. Some people love this song, others not-so-much, but for a first song I think I did well…"
