I wont deny, I faked it
don’t wanna lie, I’m jaded
I wanna scream, Inside I’m breaking down

I’ve left the stone, I was under
I’m running home, you won’t find her
She walks alone, all through this broken town

Going the wrong way down a one way street
Where the feeling is criminal
Nobody helps me out when I bleed
(just look, look)
Looking for someone like me
Where the feeling is mutual
Can anybody see what I see
Cause I don’t see me

I’ll blow away these ashes
I’ll clear his face, to look at it
He stole my name, while I wait in lost and found


I found a place, where I’ll keep you
Cause I won’t live through you or beneath you
I’ll walk this way, where these winds wont bring me down

[Chorus]
don’t, let it be
Save it all, don’t waste it on me
Cause it I take a chance
And if I hurt again
And if I let you in, could be my reckoning

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented this song. It's the most awesome song, I love Alexz's stuff, i listen to this song as weel as some of her others when I'm angry, they're so relieving and I can relate to them so much! This one is so great, i love the 'I found a place, where I’ll keep you
    Cause I won’t live through you or beneath you'
    this is such a strong line, its like shes realised that she cant be with this guy she likes, so shes just putting him away at the back of her mind.

    General Commenti know! i happens to me too...whenever im angry i'll listen to it .. i like when she says "he stole my name while i waited lost and found" i think it means that when she was all lost and suffering he even came to complete her misery thats an awesome metaphor or wtv

    General CommentWow, this song just shows how much a guy can mess a girl up. He messed her and she's escaped from him and is trying to find a way to not get back under his spell.
