Wide awake, fall again
Scratchin at my wounds
Always in tune
Love came too soon

And in the morning, I saw the wave
Wasn’t it something
And you say you don’t need me
And you say you love the scene

Forget about you

Had a feelin it would come to this
Stitches always breaking
Every sound that you make
Keeps me awake

And in the morning, I saw the gaze
It wasn’t a comfort
And you say you don’t need me
And you say you want to breathe

Forget about you

Forget about all this life we have
We were the unseen
And I don’t regret the days
Wasn’t it something

Forget about you

    General CommentThis song seems to be about one of the people wanting out of the relationship, but the other person still sees the positive sides of the relationship...and maybe even wants to hold onto it...but because the other person is no longer concerned, they have to forget about the past. It seems like the person saw it coming on because he says,"and in the morning, I saw the gaze, it wasn't a comfort." We've all been in relationships where we know the other person just doesn't want to be there anymore...and it rips you apart. The only way to move on is to forget....which is easier said than done.

    General CommentHe lays awake, unable to sleep. The pain inside of him has gone numb, though he still goes over and over it in his mind, drawing out the pain worse and worse as he "scratches at his wounds". Their long-time conflict--she feels restricted by her relationship with him, like she can't go out and be a part of "the scene". I feel like this is a result of the long-distance relationship, particularly because it talks about "all the life [they] had" and they "were the unseen", which implies that no one else fully understood the depth and breadth of their probably very private relationship.

    General CommentIt's always hard when someone falls out of love with you before you fall out of love with them.
