"It's About Time" as written by and Brian Leseny Fennell....
One more day down these stairs
His room is cold now and it hurts like hell
He holds tight, he stares
It's almost over and it's running through his head
They don't know me,
They don't know more than I show

She's walking up to him so slowly
It's about time, it's about time to fly away but wait
This one is different 'cause she's lonely
Fold your wings, you'll need them more one day

One more smile, one more bed
Her eyes are dark now and they hurt like hell
She's so still, she's dead
She knows it's over, she holds her head and says
They can't love me,
They can't love what I don't show

He's walking up to her so slowly
It's about time, it's about time to fly away but wait
This one is different 'cause he's lonely
Fold your wings, you'll need them more

There have been too many times
When I've drowned you with these perfect lines
And you've heard me say that I can cure you
This morning I woke up with this overwhelming fear of love
And I'm not sure if I can resurrect you

Now I'm walking up to you so slowly
It's about time, it's about time to fly away but wait
I swear it's different 'cause I'm lonely
Fold your wings, you'll need them more one day

    General CommentThis song gave me the chills when I heard an acoustic version of it because i could really focus and the lyrics. I agree with blackat16. It reminds me of my own struggles.

    To me, this is a story about two people who push everyone away. "They can't love me, they can't love what they don't show" That's the exact kind of problem people have with their own families.

    one more day down these stairs
    his room is cold now and it hurts like hell
    he holds tight, he stares
    it�s almost over and it�s running through his head
    they don�t know me
    they don�t know more than i show

    To me, the loneliness comes from broken ties with the people who should love you-- your family. And then it leaves you broken. And these two people are looking for something in each other to fill what they've lost in their own lives. "but wait, this one's different cause she's lonely"-- they need each other.

    But even though these people hurt the same way, anything between them won't work out because they can't open up.
    and you�ve heard me say that i can cure you
    this morning i woke up with this overwhelming fear of love
    and i�m not sure if i can resurrect you

    Like all of you said, the whole empty words without actions comes into play, when they realize they can't fix each other, because they're scared of the very same thing--Love.
    So sad. Heartbreaking in its own sense of irony.
