And it takes me away,
As if it's only in my mind.
Same old set of feelings happen
Faster still.

My friend, I hardly knew you though I tried so long ago.
I've been thinking it over, at least I'm trying to.
Remembering that Saturday when we wrecked our shoes.
We were covered in love, or maybe the lack thereof.
I wish my memory would serve me,
But it's more like mythology, ancient history
Of stories that I made up, up.

Listen to me when I tell you,
You've got no control.
It's nothing to feel sad about,
It takes the best of all of us.

And it takes me away,
As if it's only in my mind.
Same old set of feelings happen
Faster still. (faster still)

In the mirror I nearly lost you, I could always see my breath
All exposed and over.
Remembering that night when the police phoned my house.
We're in trouble now, maybe we won't get caught.

Listen to me when I tell you,
You've got no control.
It's nothing to feel sad about,
It takes the best of all of us.

And it takes me away,
As if it's only in my mind.
The same old set of feelings happen
Faster still.

And it takes me away,
As if it's only in my mind.
The same old set of feelings happen
Faster still.

And we thought we knew it all,
Like we had it in our hands.
But we are younger than them now
Even when 10 years have passed.
As I look into your eyes, I don't know you any better
Covered in love, covered in love.

And it takes me away,
As if it's only in my mind.
The same old set of feelings happen
Faster still.

And it takes me away,
As if it's only in my mind.
The same old set of feelings happen
Faster still. (faster still)

We're covered in love,
Or lackethereof.
It's getting faster everyday,
It's growing faster still.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song.

    I've been told that it's about Daniel's mom, who passed away.

    Does anyone see it?

    General CommentA friend of mine and I interviewed Daniel for a website we were working on, and he said that the album title is a reference to his mother's death.

    Apparently, after Daniel's mother died, the family found out that she'd been suffering from cancer and never told her family. Thus the title "Secrets Keep You Sick".

    This song definitely makes sense in regards to this theme. I love it.

    General CommentThe best way to listen to this song is climbing out of the window in your room in the summer to sit on the roof of your house between 5:30 and 7 am, on one of those nights that you just can't sleep or realize that sleeping is such an inconvenient waste, watching the sunrise. And then climbing back down and feeling the morning dew on the grass on your bare feet. Listening to it in any other way just doesn't do it justice.

    General CommentI don't think that this song was actually about his mother, and it definitely seems like it's talking about a friend. The song "Beside You Now" was a song about his mother, told from his father's point of view.
    The real meaning of this song definitely seems to be about having lost a good friend, and remembering the times they had.

    Also, I completely agree with veggiestyle on this.

    Beautiful poetry.

    General CommentAt the end of the song, there's a part that goes

    In my dream, you were there
    It was real
    I could almost touch the wrinkles in your skin
    Images so vivid still.
    Perhaps the next best thing, to being there
    Is knowing where you are.
    But I cannot cross the chasm,
    I believe you're moving on.
    God if you can hear me
    Take this lump out of my throat.
    It seems I only laugh in photographs,
    Melting snow, and video
    But oh, this is my favorite time of year..
    At least it used to be,
    When she was here.
    :)
