She showed up wearing red
She's all inside my head
While we were
Standing in this overcrowded room

The essence of your eyes
Makes me just want to die
And I can't stand the way they'll never look at me again
I think about you every night
And though we couldn't make things right
I'm waiting for the time we'll share the same bedroom again

Don't go
I'm gonna make you stay with me
Till I'm through
(Standing in this overcrowded room)
And please, make me brand new
(Standing in this overcrowded room)

I know you're on my side
I know you've doubted once or twice
And I don't know if I could be the same person
There's something you should know
It's so easy for me to say "no"
Cuz you're the only one I want to be with in the end

Don't go
I'm gonna make you stay with me
Till I'm through
(Standing in this overcrowded room)
And please, make me brand new
(Standing in this overcrowded room)

I know you're on my side
I know you've doubted once or twice
And I don't know if I could be the same person
There's something you should know
It's so easy for me to say "no"
Cuz you're the only one

    General CommentI don't know why anyone hasn't posted on this song. It's so amazing, and this band rocks. This hits real close to home for me because this is where I am right now with my long-term boyfriend. It's like the feeling you get when you know that the person is going to walk away, and you hope they're coming back. I think the overcrowded room is just this sense of overwhelming with everything that's going on or has gone on in the relationship. Idk. I just really like it.

    General CommentI love this song. It's so great, great sound, great lyrics, which is expected coming from bleed the dream. Amazing. Hits close to home for me, too.

    General CommentI think it sounds like "absence of your eyes" instead of "essence". I could be wrong but that's how it sounds, and it goes with the whole "the way they'll never look at me again" thing.
