Time, moves slowly while you're gone
I haven't heard your voice in quite some time
But I still see your face
I cannot erase the things you've done
And all the ways you kept me hangin' on

[Chorus]
Now your gone
I've moved on
And I don't feel so sorry
Can't you see I'm bleeding
But I won't bleed anymore
I've held on
For so long
But I had to let you go
At the end of our broken road

I know, it hurts to hear the truth
Well maybe
I was never meant to be with you
And I cannot replace
The tears of disgrace
That run for you
Cause running from the truth is what you do

[Chorus]

You were all I've ever known
And I cannot replace all these tears of disgrace
And I won't bleed for you anymore

[Chorus]

And I won't bleed for you anymore
I've moved on
And I won't bleed for you anymore
I'm bleeding but I won't bleed anymore

I've held on
For so long
At the end of our broken road

    General Comment:I can't believe no one posted yet on this song. I bought the cd because I loved Lie To Me but after hearing this song, it has become my favorite. To me this is a perfect "end of a relationship" song. I think it talks of the feeling of relief, like truely accepting that things are over and that it's okay to look at that person in a bad light, it's okay to remove them from the pedestal you had put them on. Just because you feel anger doesn't necessarily mean you hate them. It's okay that you don't see them the same way anymore. Just my opinion.

    General Comment:To me this song is about letting go. In the chorus: Now you're gone
    I've moved on
    and I don't feel so sorry
    can't you see I'm bleeding
    but I won't bleed anymore
    I've held on
    for so long now
    but I had to let you go
    at the end of our broken road

    saying that shes gone he's moved on and hes not sorry anymore and he won't grieve over her anymore hes been doing that to long and he just had to let her go at the end of this long hard road that hes been walking. I also agree with fides75 on this.

    General Comment:To me this song is about Loving someone so much it hurts to let them. He knows he has to let her go because they both know they'll never be together again. I can totally relate to this song in every way.. "I've held on for so long now but i had to let you" is saying that he hasnt let her go yet but now he's realizing that he has to move on to be happy again. I feel like this song was just made for me. Im sure a lot of other people feel like this too when they listen to it. Its the perfect break up song... Or moving on song... I miss him.. But just like this song says.. "I had to let you go at the end of our broken road" ......

    General Comment:i think "end of our broken road" is a metaphor for the relationship he had with his gf.. i think he's saying he moved on but deep down he misses her, but he knows its time to let her go because their "road" is "broken" and he can't fix it, no matter how much he would try to, or want to, he cant fix it

    General Comment:in reply to brokenncalibound, i never said that chris ever sang the song or the 12 stones was a cover band. Chris wrote the song when they were touring with him as the opening act

    General Comment:This song always makes me think about my best friend I've ever had. It's from when I was younger and he kinda tought me how to do stuff. But he's gone now... And this song has helped me move along from being so sad about it. I still think about him (my friend) and when I'm upset I always pretend he is there and I talk to him. It always helps me.
