desolate, empty, distracted and wrong
the people we love are the people we hurt
backwards and needing change
we take we can
but never giving anything

and harsh words get old but never stop cutting
through your soul, it's bleeding

through thick and thin
through better or worse
the words are still so unrehearsed

if i could say anything now
theres three words i can't live out
all alone in the world when you're sitting here next to me

if i could say anything now
theres three words i can't live out
all alone in the world when you're sitting here next to me

forget what you want, it's not about you
you make a choice so it's your job to see it through
divide, destroying finding someone new
it's not the answer to your problem
your problems you

if i could say anything now
theres three words i can't live out
all alone in the world when you're sitting here next to me

if i could say anything now
theres three words i can't live out
all alone in the world when you're sitting here next to me

you're not hopeless
i see so much more in you than you see in your self
things can get better
if you only let me in
it's time to surrender

if i could say anything now
theres three words i can't live out
all alone in the world when you're sitting here next to me

if i could say anything now
theres three words i can't live out
all alone in the world when you're sitting here next to me

all alone in the world when you're sitting here next to me
all alone in the world when you're sitting here next to me

all alone in the world

    General CommentI think it's about someone who is in love. However the person that they're in love with only hurts them, and it won't change until that person realizes that they need to. They want to say "I love you" but can't live out those three words since the other person won't let them in.

    General CommentQuite possibly the best song this amazing band sings. Its very catchy, and lots of people can relate to the lyrics "if i could say anything now
    theres three words i can't live out
    all alone in the world when you're sitting here next to me"...It may be about a guy who likes a girl but she doesnt notice him at all...

    My InterpretationI agree that it could be about a girl that doesn't notice a guy, especially when you add "you're not hopeless
    i see so much more in you than you see in your self
    things can get better
    if you only let me in
    it's time to surrender"

    When you add those lines, its pretty obvious.

    Amazing song, from an amazing band.
