I'm taking it in,
I'm holding it back,
I'm filling my lungs, like the knife in my back,
But you kept going on just to make me feel like this,
Now that it's over,
I won't feel the same,
A broken frame with our picture, is wasted,
I'm throwing it away,

Look inside,
You were all I had (All that I can take)
Guess the joke's on me,

We missed our chance,
I won't forget,
As time will only tell where you go (Time will only tell where you go)
Though I wish that you were breathing,
I still just can't believe you're gone,

And I was looking for something,
But I came up with nothing,
Not a reason to leave or to let this out,
But you kept going on, cause you make me feel like this,
Now that it's over,
I won't feel the same,
A broken friendship was worth it,
I'll scrap any thoughts with your name,
Still I long for you to stay,
I'd take back anything,

We missed our chance,
I won't forget,
As time will only tell where you go (Time will only tell where you go)
Though I wish that you were breathing,
I still just can't believe you're gone,

We missed our chance,
I won't forget,
As time will only tell where you go (Time will only tell where you go)
Though I wish that you were breathing,
I still just can't believe you're gone,

We missed our chance,
I won't forget,
As time will only tell where you go (Time will only tell where you go)
Though I wish that you were breathing,
I still just can't believe you're gone

    General CommentMaybe it really is about death... But meh, it reminds me of my ex... Especially the "but you kept going on just to make me feel like this" because apparently, his feelings changed but he tried to pretend so I'd be happy... And the whole "we missed our chance/I won't forget/as time will only tell where you go" since this was our 3rd time back together and well, we fucked it up... Maybe someday, if its meant to be it can happen again for real, but I'll always have the good memories.

    General CommentIts definitely about death, if anyone has ever experienced it im sure you've felt like "my god, why are you doing this to me? why did you put me through this pain?" and it seems like AP is conveying that message

    General Commentwell it reminds me of an experience i recently had.. it isnt what the song is about, but it reminds me of a girl i just knew for 2 days while visiting my grandparents. we clicked right form the start and hung out a little bit during the weekend i was there, she lives out of my state and im home now. i really miss her and want to talk to her, but i have no way of contacting her and i think if i stayed there longer we COULD HAVE had something...i jsut cant help thining about her.. even tho i just met her.

    General CommentI'm taking it in
    I'm holding it back
    I'm filling my lungs with the knife in my back
    But you kept going on just to make me feel like this
    Now that it's over
    I won't feel the same
    A broken frame with our picture is wasted
    I've thrown it away
    Losing sight
    You were all I had
    All I could take
    I guess the jokes on me

    We missed our chance
    I won't forget
    As time will only tell where to go
    Though I wish that you weren't breathing
    I still just can't believe

    Those are the proper lyrics, its although I wish that you weren't breathing, I still just can't believe you're gone

    I think its about a girl matt young beat up because she annoyed him with everything she did.

    He was looking for a reason apart from this people would accept for beating her up, but there wasn't one apart from he found her annoying

    And I was looking for something,
    But I came up with nothing,
    Not a reason to leave or to let this out,
    But you kept going on, cause you make me feel like this

    He wishes her dead but can't believe she's alive but out of his life, its such a relief.
