Maybe everyone's to blame
'Cause I can't fall in love to save
All the world, or anyone else
Turn on the tv and fade,
Maybe it's only me.

Talk to me now
Why do you run from me?
Walk up to me
Like we never met,
Break into me
I need you more than you know
Oh no, I'm under the ground.

Tell me if you want to be
Lonely, or if there should be
Someone else, tell me it's me
Let's run away in the rain.

My parts are falling out
It's useless,
No one can save me know
I'm under somebody's painted house
I hear their surrounding voices fade
When I decide to stay.

It's four in the morning
I'm naked and staring at the wall
In my lonely apartment room,
And I swear to your beauty
I'm sorry that I'm so messed up
Don't hate me when I'm under the ground.

    General Commentthis song is beautiful, i agree.. raw emotion so wonderfully expressed..

    i think it's about two people who've reached some sort of crossroads or breaking point in their relationship. and the one singing this song, he wants to be with her so badly, but he has no idea how he can possibly reach her because she doesn't see him in the same way anymore.
    and he's not sure where he's going, and maybe some part of him feels like he's dying as he's losing her.. he's starting to go under the ground because he's without her..

    at least that's my take on this song..=)

    General CommentWhen you feel your life is spiraling out of control but are too proud to turn to the person that has always been there for you because your afraid that asking them for help would just prove that you have nothing to offer. You're terrified to tell them how you feel about them and all they have done for you because in your state of weakness you couldn't bare to lose them. You just want them to see inside your heart.
