I saw you hanging
On the arm of some other guy
Like a drummer who’s been banging
Steady beating 4/4 time

Now you’re flicking at your cigarette
Batting eyes and pouting lips
Giving him the love that I need
But I can tell those eyes
And the emptiness behind them
You don’t look so happy to me

You’re so lost
You’re so alone
And I’m standing here
I am a man of stone

You said baby, you’ll change
And I did not change
You said gimme all your lovin’
And I did every day

Now you’re tattooed on my skin
And my chest is caving in
From the weight of the pain you bring
Now you got me branded
Broken but still standing
Watching you wreck everything

You’re so lost
You’re so cold
And I’m standing here
I am a man of stone

My feet are stuck to the ground
My love has bound me here
I am statue now
I gave you my last tear
Someday you’ll wake up
And you’ll think of me and you’ll know
I am a man
A man of stone

You’re so lost
You’re so alone
And I’m standing here
I am a man of stone

    General CommentI think it's obvious that this is a song about how much it hurts to see the person you love move on from you while you still haven't moved on from them.

    I can relate to that.
    It has a very catchy hardcore passionate beat, I think.
    Also, I think when he says:
    But I can tell those eyes
    And the emptiness behind them
    You don’t look so happy to me

    You’re so lost
    You’re so alone

    He's kind of saying that he thinks she isn't happy with this new guy like she was, or could have been, with him.

    It's a great song though.
    I really love the line "Now you're tattooed on my skin, & my chest is caving in."

    General Commentyeah he's trying to convince himself that she's confused, and place his emotions onto her, even though who knows? She might be better off without him. He says that she's gonna "wreck everything" without him, even though he's the one that's really wrecking his own life.

    General Commentidk if a agree on the part about him wrecking his own life, i look at it more like..the girl he loved wanted out of the relationship so she goes and finds a quick fix to try and get over him while he has no one and he doesnt choose to do it like that but instead stands strong and waits it out. like a man of stone
