When your heart breaks you, when the lies shine through, when your father finds you sleeping in the rain like you do, do you let out a last breath?
Do you give it the college try or do you just slump to one side?
When you twist what’s true and the fingers point at you, when the bottom drops out on everything you knew and your youth what do you do?
Do you intend to help me get back home or will you leave me stranded?

I’m on to you. The strings are shown, the mirrors fog, the belt in its groove will slip out.

When your heart breaks you, when the lies shine through, when your father finds you sleeping in the rain like you do, do you let out a last breath?
Do you give it the college try or do you just slump to one side?
And so you drop out of school and still you make excuses for the time and what you find.

Do you intend to help me get back home or will you leave me stranded? I’m on to you. The strings are shown, the mirrors fog, the belt in its groove will slip out.
Little by little you’ve drifted towards something you don’t understand and now you look at him and remember when you’d collapse into his arms.

    I get a feeling the song is about family. The last line "Little by little you’ve drifted towards something you don’t understand and now you look at him and remember when you’d collapse into his arms." is so devastating.
