Look at where you've got yourself now
You think the world, the world, the world, the world
Is trying to bring you down
You think that moving on
Means getting passed around
But every move you make
Just takes you further down

These are simple times
And now I miss your simple pleasures
A substance state of mind
What I had left to treasure
I know it's been a while
I swear you wouldn't be so lonely
If only you'd let me in

So look at you now
The spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
I wish you would hang up and turn around
And let me see those eyes
They'd be the same brown eyes

I can't help thinking so much about
How such a girl, girl could dig a hole so deep
You can't find a way to get out
I'm not a helping hand
I'm a rope to pull you through
Just give me, give one more chance
To turn you back to you

Take this feeble mind
And mold it into something better
And help me realize
That I won't live forever
I know it's been a while
I swear you wouldn't be so lonely
If only you'd let me in

So look at you now
The spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
I wish you would hang up and turn around
And let me see those eyes
They'd be the same brown eyes

You're not here
Every night is a nightmare

So look at me now
The spark in my eyes is gone, somehow
I wish I could stand up and turn around
And let you see my eyes
They'd be the same brown eyes

    General Comment=O No one commented? Shame.

    To me this song is saying that their friend/and or girlfriend has changed.

    "These are simple times.And now I miss your simple pleasures"
    = Alec is saying that she's gone... maybe moved away, or she just isn't the same as she used to be.

    "The spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
    I wish you would hang up and turn around
    And let me see those eyes
    They'd be the same brown eyes"
    = This is where I get my theory. The 'spark is her/his eyes is gone somehow' maybe because of depression, or something like that. by 'hang up and turn around' i think that means like hang up the phone?

    Umm. That may mean like, the person's spending all their time with someone who isn't all that great of a person.... just what I think.. I can relate >.<

    You people should comment this. Powerspace wins at life. ~_^

    General Comment"You think that moving on

    I think this means what this girl has done after a break up with the boy for whatever reason. She goes from boy to boy(maybe sexually?) thinking she'll move on, but in reality, she's just getting worse.

    "I know it's been a while
    But I swear you wouldn't be so lonely
    If only you'd let me in"
    I think they've been seperated for awhile but the boy wants her back because all he has is memories of them to cherish.

    "So look at you now
    The spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
    I wish you would hang up and turn around
    And let me see those eyes
    They'd be the same brown eyes"
    He wants her to "hang up" which I think means to quit going from boy to boy. He wants her to take a look at herself. Like 3rd person and realize she's not like she used to be. She's the same person, she just doesn't have that 'spark' but with him, she can get it back.

    "I can't help thinking so much about
    How such a girl could dig a hole so deep
    You can't find a way to get out
    I'm not a helping hand
    I'm a rope to pull you through
    Just give me, give one more chance
    To turn you back to you"
    He can't understand how depressed she is and she can't make herself better. He wants to help her but she needs to give him another chance.

    "You're not here
    Every night is a nightmare"
    This is tricky. Maybe he's concerned where she is at night time? Maybe out with different guys?
    Or he likes her so much it's unbearable without her.

    "So look at me now
    The spark in my eyes is gone, somehow
    I wish I could stand up and turn around
    And let you see my eyes
    They'd be the same brown eyes"
    He wants her to look at him and realize his 'spark' is also gone but he's the same person.

    I may be way off. But that's what I interperate it as

    General CommentI still like 'I put the abs in abstinence' better and think it should have got the nod for lyrics on there full length.
