"This Is Who We Are" as written by Eron Bucciarelli-tieger, Micah Carli, James Ii Woodruff, Matthew Ridenour and Casey Calvert....
Between the future and the past tense
Lies the present in the distance
So you think we're never coming back
Scoring points for passion and persistence

Between the lines and the highway
Lies a dead you in the safety
You never thought this was gonna last
I always knew you'd never take it back
I always knew (i always knew)

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]
I know it seems like we're never coming back
I know it feels like we're never coming back
You tried your best and you knew it wouldn't last
These were the words that she placed on her casket

Between the sadness and the smile
Lies the flicker of the fire
You always said this never hurt you
I always said you were a liar
With the all the towers and the wires
There still lies a little silence
Two hearts and one connection
One voice lets emotion out
I always knew (i always knew)

[Chorus:]

Instead of flowers like words they never mattered
Close it up forget about the sadness (close it up forget about the sadness)
He always said she should of stop crying
But he knew at least she was lying down

I'm coming back (I'm coming back) [x2]

[Chorus:]

    General CommentPeople stop being so concerned with the lyrics!!!! its the meaning that matters.

    Mmmkay, i think i get what this song means:
    There's a guy and a girl and they love each other, theyve been through a lot together
    "through the future and the past tense"
    but they believe its over
    "so you think we're never coming back"
    The girl doesnt want it to end, she wants him with everything she has.
    "Scoring points for passion and persistence"
    then "lies the danger and the safety" their hearts are inbetween, they can still be mended, but they are close to danger.
    The guy never thought it was going to last, as much as the girl knew it coulkd and shoulve
    "you never thought that it was going to last"
    She doesnt regret what happened, as much as the guy wishes she would
    "i always new you'd never take it back"

    "Iknow it seems that we're never coming back, i know it feels that we're never coming back, you tried your best but you knew it wouldnt last, these are the words that she place on her casket"
    so the chorus, she feels and knows he's never coming back, they arent going to be, she tried her best and gave everything she had but it was so could she knew it couldnt last because he wasnt going to let it. She cant live without him, so this is what she took to the grave, knowing they couldnt be, werent going to be that it was over and she couldnt take that, she wants to die.

    "between the sadness and the smile" (she tries to fake it, she smiles when shes around him, cries whenever he isnt around)
    lies the flicker of the fire(theres that last flicker of a flame, hope that she has that they can be)
    you always said this never hurt you(she didnt want him to see how much everything hurt her, how he crushed her, she knew it would hurt him)
    "i always said you were a liar"(he loves her too, so of course he was aware he broke her)
    "with the all the towers and the wires"(their lives still go on as normal, they pretend too)
    "there still lies a little silence"(they cant talk about what went on, it hurs too much)
    "two hearts and one connection"(they are connected, soul mates meant to be. Yet the guy wont let it happen, even though the girl would give anything for it.)
    "one voice lacks emotion now"( the girl was so broken so hurt, still longing, the only thing she can do is try to feel nothing. She knows happiness isnt possible without him)
    i always knew (i always knew) (he never wanted to hurt her, but he knew he would, and did)



    "instead of flowers like words that never mattered" (she tried to talk it out with him, but she couldnt convince him ever that they should be together)
    "close it off forget about the sadness"(she wants to forget, move on, forget, stop the saddness, the pain, but cant)
    "he always said she should of tried crying"(she always bottled it up around him, he wanted her to cry to let it out so he could see what he has done to her)
    "blaming him as she was lying down"(she always hated herself, knowing she wasnt good enough to have him, to convince him to be with her, but she knew if he would just give her a little bit it couldve been, but he wouldnt and still wont, she blames him for doing this to her because she knows she will never be better, never feel anything but nothingness, pain or saddness.

    Thats my interpitation of the song, this song i related it to what has just happened to me, so it may not make sense to anyone else, but it does for me. This is exactly what has happened accept the guy in this song doesnt have a girlfriend, the one in my life is with someone else even though he says he loves me and wants me but wont let it happen....
    nothingness is where i hide.

    General Commentthis song is awesome i lovee the chorus...how can people hate HH...other than being mtv fags haha...but really only small minded fucks hate bands because they are on mtv. HH may be a 'false' emo band in some peoples eyes but even if they are does that even matter? they have good music and are amazing lyrically..so whats bad about them? damned if i know

    General CommentI agree pretty much with punkkid, like the music or not because you want to, not because it's on some channel.

    Just a few quick edits

    *Lies the danger and the safety NOT

    Lies the dead you and the safety

    *One voice lacks emotion now NOT

    One voice lets emotion out

    *Instead of flowers like words THAT never mattered (not they)

    *Close it OFF forget about the sadness (not up)

    *He always said she should have TRIED crying (not stop)

    *Blaming him as she was lying down NOT

    But he knew at least she was lying down

    And at the end he's saying "Not coming back" not "I'm coming back"

    Those changes are straight from the CD Jacket. (ok so there were more than few)

    General Commentomg... i love this song to death.. too literally too.... lol.. but... i think... that this guy and this girl were trying to work it out... but both of them didnt really believe that they could do it so they ended up breaking up but then they realize that still have feelings for each other... but he doesnt want to get hurt again.. but hes kind of unsure... hmm.. what do yall think... thats what I perceived...
