how could I say goodbye
I won't let you see their type
dreams of yesterday
have haunted my life
they bleed through the day
and creep through the night

blacked out but not gone
well sometimes we need love but don't want
blacked out but not gone
I see you walk away like the setting sun

i fell through the haze
left by the sun
yah, my eyes were glazed
my mind on the run
so i float away
like birds when you call
cause the higher we climb
the harder we fall

blacked out but not gone
well sometimes we need love but dont want
blacked out but not gone
I see you walk away like the setting sun

blacked out but not gone
well sometimes we need love to hold on
well sometimes we need love to hold on

    General Commenti fell through the haze
    left by the sun
    yah, my eyes were glazed
    my mind on the run
    so i float away
    like birds when you call
    cause the higher we climb
    the harder we fall


    This is probably the most beautiful description of love i've ever heard. It captures the beauty in pain in the journey and its so truthful. It's being in love knowing that if you get in too deep...if you get to high on that love..well the crash will only hurt worse. But its beautiful in the so i float away like birds when you call...he doesn't care of what may happen after love..he is still consistant to who he is in love with.

    pure beauty..seriously

    General Commentit's not "sometimes we need love to hold on"
    i think the lyric is "sometimes we need love, but don't want"

    General Commentits- " how could i say goodbye, i won't let you see that side"

    the first verse i think is about refusing to leave somebody because you love them so much, despite the fact that you know you should. and the not letting somebody see that side means that for whatever reason wether it be pride or just dont want to let them down you you wont leave.
