(written by corey cooper)
(band - mailbox)
it's a quarter past 7
why did somebody break my chains?
i've been sitting here ever since...
repeating the lines i would say
in my head are memories and bad pick up lines
i cringe at the thought of releasing them
into the wild a teen died in alaska
found by him his journal and his gun
i'm a lot like him
but with a life more worthless
i never needed your forgiving
i never wanted it to come to this
we have grown apart, and it shows in our scars
this one begins where the last one ends
the blood we bleed has caught up to our needs
it always seemed my best wasn't good enough
wish i could slip away into this shallow grave
but the grave seems lonely that you're not here
got so many problems yet i don't know how to solve them
i need an eager ear
its a quarter past 4 in the morning
sirens wake me as the house next door is on fire
the flames show my true color
a scared, worthless person
the hurley flats are covered in snow
on this february night...
i miss how it glistens off of your face
then you stare up in pain
you said "i can't go out tonight"
not now... not forever
you're waiting for some guy who will treat you with respect
i've been here the whole damn time
i'm that boy you should treasure
but if you go, i'll be close to behind
or left to die, it's up to you
i'm not pissed; in my opinion you ruined your life
but it is just that, your life
you are too far away... i can't feel you
can't tell you i love you
but it wouldn't make a difference
because you are blind
but i can't give up, because there is always that chance
it wouldn't matter
it couldn't matter
it wouldn't matter
since you know me you'll probably ignore me
but i can settle for that
this doesn't make a difference
but i'll say anyway through the best way i know how
i love you
i will always love you...
and i'm too damn shy to let it out
