(Chorus)
Keep me, here up on top of the mountains.
far away from all distress, far away from all distress.
save me, free me from all these distractions.
violence filled interactions. save me,
but keep me awake.

I can't seem to find a place to fit into without all these lies. I can't even argue and to tell you the truth
now that I've wondered throughout all these cities, through bright white street lights even thought they're so pretty,
I just can't believe you.

(and when i'm alone, please just pick up the phone)
you'll feel better once you come back home
we'll say just forget about all of the things you can't save.
(take a ride out of town)
find some place you can call your own, find yourself a new home.
(cause i;m wondering now and how i'll get by)
where you're never alone.
(just keep wishing that something would change in my life)
go ahead, run away.
try to find myself and take a chance.

(pre-chorus)
cause the roads that we take can confine us or set us free.
make your path, don't you break. Just need to get away.
and you've been so tied up with your life take a break from it.
or you won't last.

(chorus)

i'll give you my trust, please don't break it.

hiding from all the things, i can't help but be scared.
leaving now starting fresh, hoping i come prepared.
say the words and i'll try, finding faith in their lies.
don't give up to my word, come on just let me know.
trying hard to be brave, but you just run away.
some things just never change, don't you dare be afraid.
pack your things, leave this town, reminisce for awhile.
but we'll never go home.

(pre-chorus)

(chorus)

i'll give you my trust, please don't ever break it

    General Commentthis is an awesome song, its the last song on the cd and it is one of my favorites.

    i think this song is about living in a world full of lies and unfaithful friends. about just wanting to get away from all of the distractions and terrible thingsin the world. I think the song is talking about when you are in the midst of all of this just wanting one person to confort you and be there for you, and when you do findthis person you still have that fear that they might break the trust you have with them. "i'll give you my trust, please don't ever break it "

    General CommentThis song completely reminds me of how over the past few years, my head has been fed full of lies and false dreams. and how the entire time I've had the perfect person right in front of me, that has always helped comfort me throught the hardest times...my best friend. && with every crushing heartbreak story I've told him, he's been there to put the peices back together. Without realizing, that it hurt him more than it did me. We've always loved eachother, but I was always scared he'd break the trust and be like all the others. Except then I'd have no one to help me back up when I fall. We're in love. I can't fall. I won't fall.

    General Commentto me, this song is sort of saying how someone is getting fed lies, and false ideas and in the midst of it all they just want that one person who can make it better and comfort them, but they're scared to trust that one person

    General Comment"cause the roads that we take can confine us or set us free. "
    is my favorite party.
    and I think the lyrics are wrong in one part.
    because I'm almost positive he says
    "pack my bags, leave this town, reminisce for awhile.
    but we'll never go home."
    either way, great song.
    I saw them at cedar center, and I'll tell ya\, they're two very musically talented people.

    General CommentI agree, the beginning is like the best part.
    So much like..stuff in his voice.
    I think it's like, he wants to be away from the problems of the world.
    Like, all the shit in life is keeping him from something important.
