"The Diary" as written by Gareth Davies, Matthew Davies, Ryan Richards, Kris Roberts and Darran Anthony Smith....
And it came from nothing
But there was always something
And when the sky burned brighter
And the nights grew darker

Hold on to everyone
That I hold dearest
To my heart
And I won't forget them

I won't forget them

Fading, always fading
Never needed more
Waiting, always waiting
Scraped across the wooden floor

And the passing time
Reaches Out
And Covers Me
With Images
Of everyone that I have known
Are ever hard to see

And I won't forget them
And I won't forget them

Fading, always fading
Never needed more
Waiting, always waiting
Scraped across the wooden floor

When the day is done
Another setting sun is down
When the day is done
Another setting sun

Waiting, always waiting
Scraped across the wooden floor

Scraped across the wooden floor
When will you be coming home?
Scraped across the wooden floor
When will you be coming home?
Scraped across the wooden floor
When will you be coming home?

Scraped across the wooden floor

    General CommentI think I would maybe like this song more if it didn't have the girls part in it.
    I like the lyrics she sings but for me it just doesn't sound right.

    I know what you mean, man. It's kind of a joke. But this song kicks ass.

    It almost seems like his life is flashing before his eyes before he dies.

    General Commenti LOVE the part where the girl sings, it may not fit the mainstream of what their style should sound like, but it's SO unique and is so beautifully placed in there at the end. this is my favorite FFAF song because of that part right there.

    Now someone post what they think the meaning is.. cause i have no idea what "scraped across the wooden floor" means

    General CommentI agree, the woman's vocals are perfectly blended in with Matt's voice. Another FFAF hit.

    General Comment@k funk
    The wooden floor of a ship? It makes sense to me, considering the concept of the album. Read it on wiki if you don't know what the album is about.

    And I agree, the female vocal only made this song more powerful.
