"Defend You" as written by Shane Told, Neil Boshart, Joshua Bradford, William Hamilton and Paul Koehler....
I'll write it down
Where you can see
I have gone to sleep

Try to relate
Can't give in to your temptations (temptations)

All your hopes and dreams, I'll take away
Its time that I forget everything
you've taught me (you've taught me)
When I looked up to you

Fall to your knees
And Give up your aspirations (aspirations)
Fall in to your knees

So how can you expect
me to just close my eyes
And forget everything
Defending you is getting
harder everyday, day

I'm breaking down
Behind this fear
If I don't go to my addiction
Make it through yourself

All your hopes and dreams, I'll take away
Its time that I forget everything
you've taught me (you've taught me)
When I looked up to you

So how can you expect
me to just close my eyes
And forget everything
Defending you is getting
hard everyday, day

I look inside myself for strength
Like a million times before
You'll never let it in because
I know you said
I know you said
I know, I know, I know, I know

Fall, I'll show you where this goes (where this goes)
How can you live this way
I'll never forget (Never forget)
Where I come from, Where I've been
I'll never forget you

So how can you expect
me to just close my eyes
And forget everything
Defending you is getting
harder everyday, day

So how can you expect
me to just close my eyes
And forget everything
Defending you is getting
harder everyday, day

You've lost it all

    General Commentsometimes its hard to just let someone go.
    even after they did let you down.
    thats what this song is saying.
    its like they are your addiction.
    and you try so hard to let them go,
    but nothing you do makes it any easier.

    General Commentits not..
    "i'll write it down where you can see I have gone to sleep."

    the way its suppose to go is.
    "I'm lying down and you cant see why i've gone to sleep." it says so in the booklet

    General Commentand its not "all your hope and dreams, I'll take away
    its time that i forget everything you've taught me."

    the real way it goes is.
    "All your hopes and dreams, washing away silently. Forget everything you've taught me when I looked up to you"

    i'm just fixing your mistakes razorb1ade.romance..
