One, two, three, four
She looked like death
Pale blue eyes staring upwards towards a sky that seemed never ending
A sky that seemed all knowing
Unlike her
She flashed a smile
One flash with a lack of emotion that I have never seen
A look of guilt
A look of concern
A look only she can pull off on a day like this
And I stood up
Stand point of my body as we held hands and looked together
And for a second I thought I saw God
But I realized I was wrong
It was a cloud hiding the dull sunlight
And it was then that I realized that this was the last time we would see each other
It was the last time we would get to hold hands
The last time I would get to tell you it will be alright
The last time I would see you alive
It was then that I realized the meaning of perfect
It was a day like this, in a place right here
With our pinkies locked without a care of the world
And as you faded I smiled and knew you'd be alright
She looked like death
Hands clammy and sweat dripping from the tip of her nose
She fell into my open arms like an apple falling from a tree
As her breath slowed her heart stopped
I lost touch
I lost touch with all reality
I couldn't cry as hard as I wanted to
I knew you'd be in a better place
One without concern one without hate
A place I hoped to visit as soon as I could
And it was then that I realized this was the last time I could see you
The last time I could brush back your hair
The last time I could tell you I would be alright
The last seconds you would be alive
And it was then I realized that perfect exist
But only on a day like this in a place right here
With your head on my shoulders
And my eyes directed above
And as you faded I smiled and knew you would be alright
So let's keep living, let's keep hoping, let's keep breathing
Let's keep breathing
Let's keep living, let's keep hoping, let's keep breathing so that we can exist
And if we hope, we will die alone
We will die alone

    General CommentThis song,
    according to Andrew Landon
    (There was a blog on his myspace where you could ask him questions, and he said it was about a friend dying)
    This is a really sad song, I've only read it all once the whole way through (not because it makes me cry, personal stuff) but it's my fave.
    But andrewlandon makes me mad, there are 1-2+ songs that aren't his:
    I love you so waas written for him by a friend, I don't know if he was aloud to use it but still.
    And search the band Imadethismistake, they have a song called "staring blindly into a dull sunset"
    It is the exact same song, guitar, etc., and I'm pretty sure andrewlandon stole it.
    He even copied Kyle's voice (The singer from Imadethismistake.)
    Don't get me wrong, I think Andfrewlandon is amazing, but that's messed up.

    i put together an entire list of the songs he stole, and "dear polly garcia" wasn't recorded by him either.

    General CommentActually, that video was stolen and edited with the same voice-over. Do you see any scar from his so called "surgery" in that video? No, because this surgery never happened and his heart problem doesn't exist.

    General CommentAndrew posted a bulletin about this.
    He did not steal them,
    he was hacked and the hacker changed his hotmail and myspace password
    and put up fake stuff.
    he made a video proving it was him
    and apologizing.
    i love this song either way.
