When everything you have goes away
You realize that nothing means a thing
Everything you thought was a big deal
Now you see it all and what is real

When all you have just falls apart
And nothing seems to work out right
And you’re trying

You’re still alright

When everything starts to feel the same
And everyone around you seems to change
You went along with me when things weren’t right
And when the morning slowly fades to night

When all you have just falls apart
And nothing seems to work out right
And you’re trying

You’re still alright

    General CommentI heard this song on Grey's Anatomy when George and Izzy were talking in the closet with linnen in it. I think this song fits perfectly to the moment. George probably realized that deep down he also loves Izzy, and that changed everything, everything falls appart, but he's still alright

    General CommentI actually heard this song on Kyle XY. I think it's about how no matter how bad things can get, how different people can become, some things still stay the same, and you can make it out alright.
    I also think that it's about material things not being important, and that you can get along without them "When everything you have goes away/You realize that nothing means a thing"

    General CommentIt was also on season three of How I Met Your Mother, the Slapsgiving episode. Definitely a beautiful moment where music and tv intertwine perfectly.
