How many times should I stop and believe in myself,
I don't believe much in anything.
Ive seen enough of the pain and the shame and the blame,
It don't amount up to anything.
Now I,
Rewind back to a time where I could do anything and pay any price.
And I,
Need time cause' im starting to think that the promises ain't worth the sacrifice


And theres nothing for me here.
Theres nothing for me here.


How many nights should I walk in my sleep,
and I dream of how much I wanna run away (wanna run away)
Ive had enough of the stress and the mess
I cant take anymore I gotta getaway
Now I,
Know why I'm empty inside and I'm sure I've only got myself to blame.
And I,
Don't try to view the lies its just a waste of time I'll never be the same


Theres nothing for me here.
Theres nothing for me here.
Theres nothing for me here.
I gave you my life and its fading away.
Theres nothing for me here.
I gave you my life just to fade away.


And I can't go on.
And I can't explain.
When everyone's gone and I'm left holding the blame
And I can't rewind.
And theres no escape.
It's been so long and I just don't feel the same.


There's nothing for me here.
There's nothing for me here.
There's nothing for me here.
I gave you my life and it's fading away.
There's nothing for me here.
I gave you my life just to fade away.
How many times should I stop and believe in myself?
I don't believe much in anything.
There's nothing for me here.
There's nothing for me here.
I gave you my life just to fade away.

    General Commentto me i think this song's sort of related to him losing faith in what he once strongly believed in or followed (rewind back to the time where he could do anything, pay any price..). Giving his life just to fade away sounds like he also had a lot of trust in a specific person and this person that he once believed in has also turned out to be a waste of time, and now with everything falling apart, he's gotta get away from it all because there's nothing or no one left to rely upon.

    General CommentI believe this song is about someone who has hit rock bottom and wants to commit suicide. He has nothing going on for him in life, so now he wants to run away (kill himself)

    "What everyones going on,
    lifes falling away."

    that needs to be changed to

    "WHEN everyones GONE AND
    I'M LEFT HOLDING THE BLAME"

    other then that the lyrics are right
    now onto the song... I think that its about someone who's thinking about what he's doing at that point in his life, thinking about all the stuff that's happened to him
    (Ive seen enough of the pain and the shame and the blame,
    It don't amount up to anything.)

    But even so, it doesn't amount up to anything in his life, and he thinks back to when the choices he made had no effect on him and now that he's older he wishes that he could have been smarter with what he had done because now those choice have consequences.

    He can't sleep anymore because he is tired of all the terrible things that are happening to him.
    He then realizes that he only has himself to blame.

    It then goes back to the present where he made the wrong decision:
    (And I cant go on.
    And I cant explain.
    When everyones gone and I'm left holding the blame.
    And I cant rewind.
    And theres no escape.
    Its been so long and I just don't feel the same.)

    And then he realizes finally that there is nothing for him there. or something.
