When I wake up
All bottled up
A ray of sunshine tells me I am not alone
For two long days
I�ve missed your face
And I�m in hell and I just want you to come home

All I am
All I sing
All I am
All I bleed�I bleed

I say I do anything for you
I�m dying old
I�ve come unglued

For, for all I am
For all I sing and all I was I swear I�m yours
Find, find the time
When time is lost I feel like I am not alive

I�m dying old

When you�re gone, I sleep alone
And there�s a window that I deny

    General CommentNot really shure what this song is about, but if anything I'd have to say ChrisfishA id pretty close once again. I just think his significant other has been away for a while. Perhaps there was a fight or argument.

    General Commenti agree with the other two, accept she probably passed away

    hints:
    "i just want you to come home"
    also the name of the song has E.R in it

    i love this song though.

    General CommentI agree with the other comments as well. I really think that someone he loved did pass away. When he says:

    "When I wake up
    All bottled up
    A ray of sunshine tells me I am not alone"

    Maybe "a ray of sunshine tells me I am not alone" means it's the person he loves looking down on him from heaven and she's trying to make her presence known by being the warmth or ray of sunshine that shines down on him in the morning. Maybe trying to say that even though she's not physically there with him he can still feel her. I don't know just a thought! Beautiful but sad song.

    General CommentI've come to believe that his love has passed.
    She's been dead for "two long days" and he's been drinking away his pain. He's really missing her and has been falling apart ("coming unglued"). He knows that by that "ray of sunshine" (sunshine meaning that she is up in heaven looking down) she will always be there but that isn't good enough and he feels like he's in hell without her. He's saying he will always be hers.

    Idk, thats all i can pull from it. I dont get the "And there’s the window that I deny" part but thats one of my favorite parts in the song. Any one else know?

    General CommentI love the "When you’re gone, I sleep alone
    And there’s the window that I deny" lyric. To me, window means window of opportunity ie other women.
