This is the deepest cut I
Think I have ever felt
These are the things I think
But I will never tell

I'm trying to walk these bridges
Burning beneath my feet
I am an echo
I am heard but never seen

These are your hearts
Like bombs, they're coming down
They're falling on me now
And this, my last try
Got one thing left to prove
There's a bomber in me too

This is a mirror image
Of everything I'm not
Always reflecting what I learned
But was not taught

If I could make things different
If I could press restart
Then I would hold back every breath
That went too far
(Breath that went too far)

These are your hearts
Like bombs, they're coming down
They're falling on me now
And this, my last try
Got one thing left to prove
There's a bomber in me too

Sometimes I feel like I am working in the dark
(Working in the dark)
Collecting names
Collecting all abandoned hearts
And if you're one that I have missed along the way
(Missed along the way)
Then I'm rehearsing all the things I'd like to say
This isn't easy for me
This isn't easy

These are your hearts
Like bombs, they're coming down
They're falling on me now
And this, my last try
Got one thing left to prove
There's a bomber in me too

These are your hearts
Like bombs they're coming down
(They're coming down)
They're falling on me now
(Falling on me now)
And this, my last try
Got one thing left to prove
(One thing left to prove)
There's a bomber in me too

    General Commenti think this song is about how yellowcard always tries to write meaningful songs that their fans can relate their problems to. the problem is that everybody has a heavy heart for a different reason and they can't write an individual song for all of them, and the effort to do so has become overwhelming.

    the bombs are other people's problems that the band has heard of, but they have their own problems to worry about, hence, "there is a bomber in me too."

    i don't know it's just an idea, but the last verse especially makes sense if you think of it this way.

    General Comment"There's a bomber in me too"

    General CommentAMAZING song. although these lyrics are pretty screwed up. either way, it's been really helpful lately...fits perfectly to the situation i'm in. a friend asked me for an honest opinion, which i didn't want to give at first (these are the things i think but i will never tell). i was finally persuaded into honesty; apparently it was not the right thing to say (if i could press restart, then i would hold back every breath that went too far). now they won't talk to me (this is the deepest cut i think i have ever felt). and the fact that they are, at heart, so mad at me; their heart becomes like a bomb (these are your hearts...etc). so yes....i'm pretty much breathing to this song right now

    General CommentI think theres same mistakes, correct me if I am wrong.....
    "I am an echo I am hurt but never seen" should be "I am an echo I am HEARD but never seen" and where it says "Collecting leafs collecting all abandoned hearts" i think its "Collecting NAMES collecting all abandoned hearts"
