"You Are Fading" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
I'll lose this I always have,
I'll always let you down
I'll lose this I always have,
I'll always let you down

Make your way up to the stars,
It's there where you belong

I'll lose this I always have,
I'll always let you down

Waiting, you are
Fading, you are
Slowly drift off to sleep

Waiting, you are
Fading, you are
Slowly drift off to sleep

Waiting, you are
Fading, you are
Slowly drift off to sleep

    General Commentthis song never fails to make me cry. but in a good way. i have a feeling its about death, but i read something that Tom Smith (editors lead singer) said "i don't like writing stories" which i think says alot about all their songs. my favourite band, hands down.

    General Commentobvious someone who has entered deaths doors and they are not coming back. And the person who is with them starts to remember all the bad things about their relationship with this person.

    General Commentone of the best ever!
    obviously about a loved one passing on and the speaker wondering what to do and how to do it.

    General CommentFor me its about someone watching another fall to sleep. To him she is like an angel, perfect. And he knows that he will only let her down, as he did to others in the past. He knows she is waiting for him to be what she deserves, but by being with him she is slowly fading, as he is causing her to be unhappy.
