Sat up for hours, Thoughts of a lover,
I'll probly never get the chance to hold again,
All of my days spent waiting for nights,
With her again... again

And I'm sharing a drink with a memory,
And a life with an empty seat,
Do you still look the same,
Will you still look at the me the same,
Cuz i know that I don't,
I've gotten so old in these last few years,
And I'd rather be fighting with you,
Than sleeping here, Next to her


*CHORUS*
Don't let me fall I'll break, What a mess I'd make,
Pathetic pieces on your floor, Cut your feet for ever more
You're porcelain, Such fragile skin,
Just let me hold you, I'll be gentle,
I wont drop you,This time I'll be careful


Forget for just one second, that this is not alright,
Let's drink to feeling of it, at least just for tonight,
Stay for one more, pass out on the floor,
Like we used to do, it got so hot in your room

CHORUS

And I cant let it go, The phantom pain I'm feelin,
And the hurt wont leave me alone,
And I'm tired of sleepin with ghosts

Fell asleep with your ghost, Woke up with a headache,
From the cure that's only temporary, the morning always fails me

CHORUS

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous. Like most Cauterize songs, it's not the most difficult feat to figure out what he's trying to say. The speaker fucked up a relationship and still thinks back to it (even with a new girl). He pleads for another chance (and I'm assuming to himself) to no avail. Great song.

    General CommentIt seems like you can make any good song fit your own life. But this one damn near makes me cry whenever i listen to it. i love this song but i try not to listen to it to much because it reminds me of some painful memories. great song though.

    General CommentHe fucked up his first chance and now he's alone at home and can't stop thinking about it and how he badly wants a second chance.
