"Blur" as written by Greg Bergdorf, Justin Mauriello, Ali Tabatabaee, Edwin Udhus and Ben Osmundson....
Did you ever get the feeling that you were all alone
And no one ever knew you and you never had a home
And the lights and the colors do their best to distract you
Fuck you. I don't even know why I like you
It's all a blur [x2]
Like a picture,it's all a blur
You don't know what you're missing
You don't know what you're missing
I've been trying so hard just to keep away
And now look where I am standing at today
Trying so hard to walk away
But it's impossible to watch you fade away
Did you ever stop believing after all was said and done?
When you turned to your friends but they were long gone
And the sky and the snapshots remind you
I trust you and I'm always going to miss you
It's all a blur, it's all a blur
Like a picture
Reminds me who you were
[Repeat Chorus]
Every time I see you look at me
I see those distant eyes and your looks are fading
Every time you're next to me
I want to talk and feel and act like we used to
Cause everybody knows and everybody cares
Until they're walking in my shoes
And now I know
It's you that I cannot lose
It's all a blur
And I owe you
You can take it all
When I call, pick up the phone like you used to
It's all a blur
Like a picture
It's all a blur
You're just a blur!
I've been trying so hard just to keep away
And now look where I am standing at today
Trying so hard to walk away
But it's impossible to watch you fade away
Trying, dying so hard
I've been denying that I'm not scarred
I've been crying, lying so far
But it's impossible to fill this space
Impossible to take your place
Impossible to watch you fade away
Watch you fade away [x3]

    General CommentWow, I can't believe that no one has commented on this song. No one has commented on it on other websites either! This song means soo much to me. Mainly the lyrics. I have had so many friends where we have been best friends, then we sorta just fade away from each other, and you can be sitting next to each other and you know it will never be the same again. You just want it to be the same ("When I call, pick up the phone like you used to."). And it hurts so bad that it will never be the same, like no one can replace them. I think thats what this song is about. :(

    General Commentthis reminds me of my best friend who died nearly a year ago and how sometimes i still pick up the phone to call him because i forget.. and also that i hardly remember what he looked like because it's been so long and everything's become a bit of a blur

    General Commentthings change, it could be going to uni or moving away, your always going to drift apart from prople, and this song is talking about missing these people and how you feel when you see them again!

    General Commenti love this song.
    it reminds me of a recent long-term break up that hurt like hell because neither of us wanted to break up but he made it so i just had to. i would listen to this on replay constantly. i love the "fuck you i don't even know why i like you" part because i was constantly thinking that. but the whole song fit the situation perfectly.
    overall amazing song. =]
