Today
Reminds me of yesterday
A memory that will never ever go away
Keep calling my name
You turn the pain to shame
And still the secrets remain
All I want
Is to take back everything I’ve known
Holding on tight when I should’ve left you alone
I tried to believe in you when my trust in you fades
Your lies are driving me insane
It’s so unfair
I tried to let go of my pride
And wash out all the misery we carry inside
Tried to move on but we’re still stuck behind
The distant hate for me you always hide
You wasted every chance with me
And when I look and see
I’m taking the fall
All your hypocrisy always fought with me
This is what you thought of me
And wonder how we got so far

We got so far
And fell apart
And when I’m gone
You’ll be the one missing me
Every time I try
I ask myself why
Because when I’m gone
You’ll be the one missing me

Today
Reminds of yesterday
A memory that will never go away
Keep calling my name
You turn the pain to shame
So I’m the one to blame
For why it was so hard
Despite everything I changed in me
You still left part of our love in vacancy
Forgetting everything we were made to be
I’m not surprised we fell apart
When things are all said and done
You won’t even find a way to overcome
Maybe I was the one in the wrong
But you’ll still be missing me when I’m gone
You wasted every chance with me
And when I look and see
I’m taking the fall
All your hypocrisy always fought with me
This is what you thought of me
And wonder how we got so far

We got so far
And fell apart
And when I’m gone
You’ll be the one missing me
Every time I try
I ask myself why
Because when I’m gone
You’ll be the one missing me

I should’ve never trusted you
And given to you my soul
I’ll walked away
But there’s still something you have to know

I should’ve never trusted you
And given to you my soul
I'll walk away
But there’s still something you have to know

We got so far
And fell apart
And when I’m gone
You’ll be the one missing me
Every time I try
I ask myself why
Because when I’m gone
You’ll be the one missing me

    General CommentForbidden Theory is a 6-piece Nu-Metal underground band from Washington DC. Their underground debut "Hidden Truth" dropped over the summer and this song is featured on it. I follow a lot of underground artists and these guys were some of the new artists that caught my eye

    General CommentMy favorite on the album. I loved it when they played it live and I thought I had to hear that song again after the show was over. I was lucky enough to see on the album. I've listened to it several times and can't get enough of it. It talks about being abandon from the only person you can look up to and the troubles you go through when their not around. Great, great, great song.

    General CommentProbably the best on the album next to Six Feet Under and Counting on me, though all the songs are excellent. Its about being abandon by the only person you like to for help. A defant classic underground song. Should be played on the radio.
