Beneath the water
that's fallin from my eyes
lays the soul i left behind
The edge of sorrow
was reached but now I'm fine
I fill the whole I had inside
I pray it doesn't scream my name
so I light a flame
and let it breathe
the air that kills the shame

I'm up, I'm down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I've- erased the past again

Brisky morning
I feel like I'm alive
I can't believe i made it through
this time
The edge of sorrow I lived in for some time
has left the whole i had inside
The burden as i drown my hate
was the last thing i ever felt
or thought i could escape

I'm up, I'm down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I've- erased the past again
I'm up, I'm down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I've- erased the past again

You left here and broke me down
the difference is this time around
I will not let you see me drown

I'm up, I'm down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I've- erased the past again
I'm up, I'm down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I've- erased the past again

Beneath the water
that's fallin from my eyes

    General CommentAwesome ballad. I personally like Daughtry's voice so this song is definitely a standout. A lot of meaning too, just about leaving all the junk from the past back there and moving forward the best you can.

    MemoryDam good song, helped me through my last split. The edge of sorrow I've lived in for some time left the hole I have inside. It's erased, burn it down and walk away.
