What a sight
Never thought I'd find you here
Last I knew you disappeared
We all get lost

I thought I
Had lost you amongst the mess
In the cluttered things in my head
But here you are

When you wake
I'll be a thousand miles away
From the promises I made
And all I love

I'm a dreamer
With nothing left to dream
Trying to tear a hole in the seam
Of reality

Don't ever forget me
Don't ever forget me
I thought I lost you
Thought I lost you
I thought I lost you

Thought I lost you amongst the mess
And the demons in my head
But here you are

I would leave
To return more lost than before
A little more tired, a little less sure
Of where I was

The earth would move but
We would stand in place
Hide in the shadows of the dead
We're almost out of time
Yeah we're almost out of time

Don't ever forget me
Don't ever forget me
I thought I lost you
thought I lost you
I thought I lost you

Don't ever forget me
Don't ever forget me
I thought I lost you
thought I lost you
I thought I lost you

    General CommentI'm a dreamer
    With nothing left to dream
    Trying to tear a hole in the seam
    Of reality

    i absolutely love those lines. They're very simple but beautiful. I relate to them so well....half the time i feel as though i'm living in my head and not in the real world, like i've bolstered up this idea of a perfect reality and the real reality can never live up to it. But somehow, i hang on to the belief that I'll wake up one day and my dream world will be my reality.

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs I've heard in years! And it's exaclty how I feel right now. The girl I'm seeing or was seeing. I can't really tell where it's headed or it already headed. But I feel that it's all in my own mind and that nothing will spring from it.

    And she's in a big mess with her ex and I'm just dealing with my own "demons". I'm lucky to be alive with the wreak I had in my truck a week ago, and those are my "demons"

    General CommentThe earth would move but
    We would stand in place
    Hide in the shadows of the day

    One of the most redeming affectionate love songs written truley an epic.

    General Commentyou know when you get that song, that when its turned on, you stop dead, your ears become more alive and you can really feel it? It's not just even the lyrics, its the actaul guitar part. the easiest song to play in the world and one of the best.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs ever.
    In the time since I bought it a month ago, I've listened to it over 200 times.
    It really reminds me of my current situation, because there's a girl I'm becoming really close to, but I have to move to the other side of the world in a few months, and I don't know what to do. I feel like during the time I'm with her, the world stops for a moment. Just like the lines:

    The earth would move but
    We would stand in place
    Hide in the shadows of the dead
    We're almost out of time
