"Happens All The Time" as written by Jr. Ward, Samuel Mc Candless and Jeremy D. Marshall....
I still hang on every word
In a world of faded memories
Where you're still in love with me
I can see it in your eyes
A look as if your major tom has lost control

I must hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my faith in you
I can't hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my way to you

If the dreams all that I got
Then I wish you in a fairy tale
Where you're still in love with me
I can see it in your eyes
A look as if your hero fell and lost his soul

I must hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my faith in you
I can't hold on
This happens all the time
I still find my way to you

    General CommentPhenominal song. I cannot wait for this new album to be released. It seems pretty obvious that the song is about someone who is still in love with someone else, but they no longer love them in the same manner. I can relate to this right now. Cold is one hell of a band. You can check out the song on their Myspace Profile and check out the video for this song on Rollingstone.com.

    General CommentI love this song, I listened to it alot in the past few weeks with what girls troubles I've been having.

    My fave lines are;

    " I still hang on every word
    In a world of faded memories
    Where you're still in love with me"

    To me, thats significant because I got with a girl who told me on a daily basis that she loved me, I fell in love with her in time and when we finally hit it off it went downhill. I was heartbroken and I those days where she said that were "Faded memories" so to speak.

    But thankfully it's all gone on the up.

    And Artemisa is spot on with the meaning of the song if you ask me, and sorry to hear about your loss.

    General CommentIf you havent already, go now and check out the video clip for this song.. it is bloody fantastic.

    If the video clip tells the story the song is intended to tell .. then the song is about a decision on whether to hold on, or to let go of everything major in your life.

    It features Scooter in a car accident, and EMT's and people are running around distraught, he is "outside his body" looking in on the EMT's working on him trying to save his life.

    In the end he realises it isnt worth it, and decides not to hold on .. but yeah..

    Yet another brilliantly written Cold song, backed up with a very well orchestrated video clip.

    Well done once again Cold!!

    General Commentwestwingb, the lyrics are actually correct as David Bowie's song is called "Major Tom."

    Just want to say that this song is great, and the video had me in chills. Cold really knows how to make 'em.
