And if what you've got is still nothing, you feel the chill as summer leaves.
Breathe the cold into your lungs and known you truly are alone.
We walk the streets until we freeze and hope the warmth will set us free.
And know that you have lied and I wish I could be there on the day you die - alone.
We'll bury you in the snow and steel will break frozen ground
as these arms lower you down into a hole where you belong.
The feel of love is so gone. The blood in your veins was frozen from the start.
With a broken heart you left me here alone.
I wonder why I'm still dying for this.
And we've walked through these woods before on some cold October nights.
I didn't think I'd walk back out alone.
And without you by my side I just start to smile and see things for what they are
and not what you have shown.

Fraudulence - you have shown nothing more to me.
Now you lie entombed in cold, frozen.
Now we'll sing a song so pure.
And what you've done is so incurable.
You lay alone under the ground.
What went wrong with us?

    General Commenti think this song is about how a past girlfriend died and he's reminiscing over it, then he realises she was a fake or "fraudulent" heartless bitch and she deserves nothing more than the cold tomb in which shes forever buried.

    General Commentthis is my favorite song by secret lives. i dont know why it never got as big as some of their other songs. i love the transition from the breakdown back into the chorus. the one flaw i think it has though is the very last part when the two vocal lines are going at once. it would be great if the two melodies werent so similar. "what went wrong" and "incurable" sync up and it makes the vocals sound a little wierd to me. but still a fucking amazing song.
