When I said good morning
I was lying
I was truly thinking of
How I might quit waking up

He pointed out how selfish
It would be kill myself
So I keep waking up

It feels so much like falling
Dying while I wait to die
The fear of something or nothing
Lonely empty lie

I don't want to be a liar
I don't want to be selfish anymore
I want so much to change
Learning your love everyday
There's still so much to know

You grip my wrists
I let go

It feels so much like falling
Seperated from the fear
Aware of a destination far away from here

It feels so much like falling
Seperated from the fear
Aware of a destination far away from here
Far away from here

    General Commentshe wants to commit suicide but she knows that God says it is selfish because you are letting others suffer while you get off easy..at the end she decides not to kill herself because she knows someday there will be happiness in heaven and if she kills herself, she will never get there.

    MemoryThis song reminds me of when I was 13-19... I'm almost 20 now...

    I literally wanted to die and would hope every single night that I wouldn't wake up. Everything felt like it was going wrong. My grandfather and aunt died, my boyfriend moved away and then broke up with me, my friends ditched me at school, I was cutting worse than ever, had an eating disorder was being both physically and emotionally abused by my father and had even attempted suicide.

    But then suddenly in october of 2007, my boyfriend (then and now) had asked me back out and ever since then has helped me through everything... I moved away in July 2008 to be with him and away from everything.

    General Commentfuck this song is just how i feel....
    it does like dying while your waiting to die
    "When I said good morning

    General CommentI've only started listening to this song a few days ago, but I think it's an awesome song.
    The first 2 paragraph or whatever they are are my favourite part of the song.

    General CommentI can relate to this song.

    "He pointed out how selfish
    It would be kill myself
    So I keep waking up"

    ....Your words you said to me that night "Don't do it Jen, it's not worth it" are always on my mind when I feel the urge.....your voice and memory gets me through it....
