Took my watch off the day you left me
Tryin' to make time stand still
Anybody knows that's just a fool's game
'Cause it never will
God only knows how I'm feeling alone
Midnight or daylight, you're still gone

Feels like your flyin' when your falling down
Give anything for you to come back around
Try not to think about the pain inside
It only hurts when I'm alive
Things are lookin' up all the time
All the time

You say time will heal every heartache
Well I wear these scars like an overcoat
I hope to hell its gonna be a long, cold winter
'Cause I get cold

Feels like you're flyin' when you're falling down
Give anything for you to come back around
Try not to think about the pain inside
It only hurts when I'm alive
Things are lookin' up

Every day it's a brand new start
With the same old ache thats been breaking my heart

Feels like you're flyin' when you're falling down
Give anything for you to come back around
Try not to think about the pain inside
It only hurts when I'm alive
Things are lookin' up all the time
All the time

    General Commentheard this live. loved it. I can completely relate to the feeling in this song while wanting to look past something thats happened to me, but not being able to do that (because I want that person to come back around) and displaying it through heartwrenching sarcasm and inner pain. the first two lines stand out to me. and I love the blatantly poignant and blunt "It only hurts when I'm alive" without being whiny. more people should comment. can't wait for his next album.
