When you’re lost alone
And you’re lost alone again
Whoa-oh-oh

When you don’t know me
You don’t have to lose
Whoa-oh-oh

Cause you’re lost alone
And you’re lost lost again
Whoa-oh-oh

When you’re lost alone
And you don’t know me yeah

When you don’t know me
You don’t have to lose
Yeah-yeah-ah

When you’re lost alone
You’re lost lost again

When you don’t know what to do
You don’t know
Whoa-oh-oh

When you don’t know me
You don’t have to lose

I look out
Out my window
I see through a waterfall
It seems as if
I could walk off the edge
If it weren’t for the barrier between
The water’s pounding so hard
It keeps my windows clean

I say it
I say it again
Slower than gold

I say it
I say it
I say it again
Slower than gold

If I could only see
See between
If the rain would stop
I could only be me

    General Commentim pretty sure this song is about asya's depression. i love it. amazingly sad, beautiful, touching and relatable.

    the first 8 verses that talk about being lost alone is a cry of loneliness. "when you dont know me you dont have to lose" is a statement reaching out to the people that dont know what its like to be lonely. the people who dont know her problems, are living life happily without knowledge of her issues.

    "I look out out my window
    I see through a waterfall
    It seems as if I could walk off the edge (suicide)
    If it weren’t for the barrier between (family & friends)
    The water’s pounding so hard (water=sadness/problems)
    It keeps my windows clean"

    "If I could only see, See between
    If the rain would stop, I could only be me"

    This quote is saying: If she could look past the problems in her life, if the depression would stop, she could be herself.
