"Darkpop" as written by and Seth Trotter Jason Centeno....
The conversation stopped abruptly as sudden whispers filled the room
We're too down to care about the eyes that are watching his every move
No place is safe, I've been on the rope for days
And the show's in place, grab the mic and take the stage

But we can't hold back (hold back)
Just give me a second to react
Life just flies past and things are moving oh so fast
That we can't hold back (hold back)
And lose sight of everything we made
You know me better than that, you know me better than they
This isn't who I am

Oh, girl you know, yeah yeah

And with no surprise she saw every side like a story she had read
Not too quick but I could guess the ending
And I could see it in those looks you're sending out
I messed things up, can I make it up to gain your trust?
All the things I thought that I was missing
Changed them around, made my positions, with all we have is time
And that's the reason why...

We can't hold back (hold back)
Just give me a second to react
Life just flies past and things are moving oh so fast
That we can't hold back (hold back)
And lose sight of everything we made
You know me better than that, you know me better than they
This isn't who I am

Oh, girl you know, yeah yeah
And what do I do, to make amends for all I've put you through

I see that what I've done can't keep on happening, had my fun now I'm safe
No need to run, it's like someone had held their hands out begging me to come
My cover's blown with the marked up concrete and leaving home is what led you straight to me
Exposing more of what we can't ignore and what its for...

But we can't hold back (hold back)
Just give me a second to react
Life just flies past and things are moving oh so fast
That we can't hold back (hold back)
And lose sight of everything we made
You know me better than that, you know me better than they
This isn't who I am

    To me this song means just having to live life in the fast lane sort of thing.

    General Commentthis song is a song that i've shown to someone i care a lot about because it just reminds me of how things happened between us.

    "But we can't hold back (hold back): lets just go with the moment, don't think about right now.
    Just give me a second to react: but then again, what are we doing? the consequences are going to be the worst part of this.
    Life just flies past and things are moving oh so fast: but it's not our fault because things happen, and life is moving so fast that we just have to live.
    That we can't hold back (hold back): we can't stop this feeling anymore.
    And lose sight of everything we made: this would be better than what we have right now, we'll so lose sight of what we have right now."

    these lyrics speak to me and thats hard to find in a lot of songs.

    i'm pretty sure that the higher is one of my favorite bands in the whole entire world.
