All the raindrops
In the sky tonight
Can't compare with all the pain
And all the tears I've cried
But now I'm done

All the make believe
Locked in this picture frame
Is gonna stay behind
Along with all the burning rage
That's been tearing through my heart
Killing me slowly
Every beat I was falling apart

Sometimes you give
Sometimes they take
Sometimes you bend
And sometimes they break you down
Sometimes you stick around
Trying to change them, make them
Someone that they'll never be
Sometimes you leave

All this time I've spent
Staring at the door
I never had the strength
To pack my bags
And leave before
But now I'm done
Lying to myself when it's clear
That you're not that one

Sometimes you give
Sometimes they take
Sometimes you bend
And sometimes they break you down
Sometimes you stick around
Trying to change them, make them
Someone that they'll never be
And sometimes you leave

When there's nothing left
For me to leave behind
And you're already too far gone
To say goodbye

Sometimes you give
Sometimes they take
Sometimes you bend
And sometimes they break you down
Sometimes you stick around
Trying to change them, make them
Someone that they'll never be
And sometimes you leave

Sometimes you leave

    General CommentI love this song. One of the best of Carrie. I've got no idea what it's about nor why nobody's commented on this song. It's really cool. I love the Carrie's vocal range in the chorus. Especially the chorus.(:

    General CommentFirst off, i LOVE this song.

    I think this song is about getting fed up with people that continually treat you bad. Saying that someimes you give them many chances to treat you good, sometimes you try to change them, thinking that they actually will change and that sometimes you bend over backwards for them all they do is treat you like crap and break you down, so you finally get sick of the way they treat you and sometimes the only thing you can do is leave.
