How do you sleep at night father,
with what you've done to me?
How do you make it through the day,
Knowing your dead in me?

City lights can't be the answer,
(some day, some way)
Broken hearted, filled with anger,
(father, too late)
Hiding out but now its over,
(walking, no way)
Dead inside wont get much better,
(some day, some way)

And try to justify,
All the things we have inside,
(You never will...)
And try to comprehend,
All the things I have in mind,
(you never will...)

Those morselin it has never been,
So tempting as it is right now,
My mind devours thoughts of you,
To Justify the pain inside,
And dont you think it hurts me?
When I think about the past,
And how I realize im empty,
"'ll be there" is what you told me dad,

I waited as a child,
I waited 19 years,
I've looked outside the window,
To see if you were getting here,
I said "Mother don't worry,
Ill take my fathers place,
I'll be the man I should be,
I'll put a smile upon your face,"

Ill try to justify,
All the things you have inside,
(You never will...)
And try to comprehend,
All the things I have in mind,
(you never will...)

Cause morselin has never been,
So Tempting as it is right now,
My mind devours thoughts of you,
To Justify the pain inside
And dont you think it hurts me,
When I think about past?
And how I realize im empty,
"I'll be there" is what you told me dad,

I waited as a child,
I waited 19 years,
I've looked outside the window,
To see if u were getting here,
I said "Mother don't worry,
Ill take my fathers place,
I'll be the man I should be,
I'll put a smile upon your face."

Ill try to justify,
All the things you hide inside,
(You never will...)
And try to comprehend,
All the things I have in mind,
(you never will...)

And try to understand,
All the things we have inside,
(You never will...)

Cause morselin has never been,
So Tempting as it is right now,
My mind devours thoughts of you
To Justify the pain inside
And dont you think it hurts me,
When I think about past?
And how I realize im empty,
"I'll be there" is what you told me dad,

I've waited as a child,
I've waited 19 years,
I've looked outside the window,
To see if you were getting here,
I said "Mother don't worry,
I'll take my fathers place,
I'll be the man I should be,
I'll put a smile upon your face."

Upon Your Face
Upon Your Face
Upon Your Face
You Never Will
You Never Will
You Never Will
You Never Will
You Never Will
You Never Will
You Never Will
You Never Will

    General Commentso it IS fftl? i've known this song for a long time but i could never find proof that it was really them.

    oh and instead of "Dead inside wont get much better"
    it sounds much more like "Give it time, i'll be much better"

    General CommentYea. This is from first to last. I think it's when they were going from first too last to from first to last. It's Matt singing but the rest in a blur to me. The meaning's kind of simple. His father left them and he always expected him to come back but he never did and now he hates him for it. That's what I think anyways. I love Matt's voice so muchhhh. FUcking pretty also =)

    General Commentwell guys, welcome to the future of from first to last song, cause this is probably what their next album is gonna sound like. why? because its guitarist matt good singing on this song and sonny isnt. and sonny just left the band and matt and travis are taking over vocal duties and are working on the next album. i think its gonna be kick-ass... =]

    General CommentLacesOurLobstin is completely correct.
    I cried when I found Sonny left...but then again..I think that both Sonny & From First to Last will do fine on their own.

    It also gets rid of the 'ZOMG SONNY'S SO HAWTT I LOVE FFTL!!11!!!11!" Fangirls I want to stab in the ovaries.

    Also...Matty wrote a lot of their songs so we know future lyrics will be okay =)
