Something about you that makes me feel bad
I wasn't there when a thin line destroyed your soul
I search every corner
There's nowhere to hide
How I feel ignorance
Sacrifice some days it's harder
Let's face it, it's all about me
Deeply into your own

Deep within me
Life's crawling and wasting my days
Another night gone and I know there will be another way
I'm leading myself to be free
In this eternal goodbye

Something about you will make me stronger
Now I'm aware when a man falls rebound, my fault
I search every corner
Just nowhere to hide
How I feel ignorance
Sacrifice some days it's harder
Let's face it, it's all about me
Deeply into your own

Deep within me
Life's crawling and wasting my days
Another night gone and I know there will be another way
I'm leading myself to be free
In this eternal goodbye

Here I wanna be
No more lies!

Deep within me
Life's crawling and wasting my days
Another night gone and I know there will be another way
I'm leading myself to be free
In this eternal goodbye

    General CommentI thinks its about how she has just broken up with someone, "In this eternal goodbye", and she is trying to deal with it, but its very hard, and she finds it depressing, "...Just nowhere to hide...Life’s crawling and wasting my days Another night gone and I know there will be another way"

    General CommentI think maybe they're depressed. Life is dragging them down and they're dragging someone else down ? "In this eternal goodbye" They want to die and get away from this life. Maybe, I dunno. Not good at these things. But tis what I think.

    General Commentthis is my favorite song off the album. i like to look at it as having two perspectives. i think andrea represents someone who may be trying to comfort their lover who is pretty much despondent and has had enough with life (cristina's part), but feels he may be too late. he feels hopeless. meanwhile, cristina represents the person who has basically given up living a life they pretend to enjoy and is ready for the eternal goodbye.

    General CommentI have listened to this song a lot and although I can't draw a conculsion like meaning, I can hopefulyl get pretty close. So, I think there was a person. Who loved another. The singer. Whatever. And then they suddenly stopped or admitted that they didn't love them. And the singer and struggling to break free of loving this person.

    General CommentI agree with Mysticists interpretation of this song. I was just reading it and thought of pretty much the same thing. xD

    General CommentI think this song does have to do with a relationship, with Andi and Cristina portraying the external and internal monologues we all carry on with ourselves. Whether this would be a healthy relationship or not depends on your perspective, but I think it has a lot to do with growing up and maturing and realizing your actions and words have a more significant meaning than we often put on them.

    In the first verse, the lyrics could be talking about this person realizing their conduct has deeply wounded someone they care about, and no matter how much they try to hide, they can't suppress their feelings of shame and remorse for their behavior. The chorus could mean they've been wasting all this time trying to justify what they've done, but in the end they wind up back at the same place they started from, afraid they've lost this special, one-of-a-kind individual permanently.

    The second verse could be dealing with this person finally coming to terms with their feelings, no matter how much they try to hide and push them away. They truly care for this individual, they feel like they could take on the world with him/her at their side. They're struggling to tell the person that they were wrong, that they do still care, and in the end ("Here I wanna be. No more lies!") they finally decide to stop living a lie and just tell the person their real feelings.

    General Commentthis song is about regret. someone saw something a certain way. they revealed this insight to another person and totally killed their mindset on life, basically ruining all they had to live for, and now that persons wishes they never chose to do so since they destroyed someone they cared about. the other person still exhists, but it seems that they are scarred and seek an escape from this inevitable truth. possibly death.

    definitely one of my favorites. it hurts to listen to, but it's so beautiful that i can't mind. don't know about it being about a relationship, but cristina&andrea definitely represent two different people.

    General CommentI take this as two people in some sort of relationship. One seems depressed while the other just wants to help. The depressed one starts realizing how much she's just wasting her days. And everything is always about her because she's always sad. She wants to just be free and say goodbye to the sorrow.

    General Commentthis song is amazing. Andrea said it was about a friend who died from drug use. he said that with the band and touring and everything, you can't always be there for your friends and the people you love. and this person died from drugs and they couldn't do anything to help him, but they became stronger from it
