"I Don't Feel It Anymore" as written by and William Fitzsimmons....
Hold on this will
Hurt more than anything has before
What it was, what it was, what it was
I've brought this on us
More than anyone could ignore
What I've done, what I've done, what I've done

I've worked for so long
Just to see you mess around
What you've done, what you've done, what you've done
I want back the years that you took
When I was young
I was young, I was young
But it's done

Oh, take it all away
I don't feel it anymore
Oh, take it all away
Oh, take it all away
I don't feel it anymore
Oh, take it all away

We'll fall just like stars being hung by only string
Everything, everything, here is gone
No map can direct how
To ever make it home
We're alone, we're alone, we're alone

Oh, take it all away
I don't feel it anymore
Oh, take it all away
Oh, take it all away
I don't feel it anymore
Oh, take it all away

    General CommentSadly beautiful. Raw and painfully passionate. This is what music should be. Real life.

    General CommentOkay so the song starts out with his confession of cheating on his wife. He is expressing his guilt and admitting the pain and problems he is causing. She is responding with her anger- telling him that he has ruined them and that he has wasted her years with him. She has tried hard to make them work and he has thrown that away. "Take is all away. I don't feel it anymore" is a different meaning for both of them. He is saying, 'take away what i have done. I dont feel anything for this other person anymore." He is pleading for her forgiveness. She is saying, "take away all of the feelings I have ever had for you. I dont love you anymore." They were barely hanging on and now there is no way back.

    General Comment(Track 2 from the album The Sparrow and the Crow —.)

    The wrongdoer opens with an enigmatic confession laced with grief and remorse. The betrayed and wounded spouse attempts to reconcile her emotional losses against her years invested into the relationship. The hurting and the sorrow overwhelm both, and they acknowledge the tenuous state of their love in the absence of trust.

    In each other’s company the couple dwells in an apparently inescapable eddy of sorrow. Unable to find solid footing to escape the whirlpool of loss and betrayal each regretfully surrenders to the abyss of loneliness where they can experience occasional moments with out unremitting declarations of a dying relationship.

    General Commenti relate to it in that i too had to tell my girlfriend, after we'd been together a significant amount of time, that i had done something horrible. i knew that i couldn't not tell her; it wasn't even an option... but, i also knew that if i did tell her it would leave an irreparable, irrevocable impression. it's especially difficult to think of it in terms of the way you'll change in this person's eyes, how they'll forever hold this somewhere in the recesses of their mind. the circumstances, mind you, were entirely irregular, and there was a lot of drinking and stuff involved. i didn't mean for it to happen, and it wasn't something i would do. in fact, it fucked me up a great deal, too.

    she wasn't waiting for me to mess around or anything (i don't think), but... both my relationship, and myself personally, were complicated and had a fair share of issues. part of me, i think, can't help but feel that perhaps this was partially that thing that really did us in. time would pass, but seemingly at random, she would just break down. i'd find her, collapsed, crying on the bathroom floor, for instance. i couldn't make it go away, and so i knew there was nothing i could really do. all i wanted to do was take it back. i would've given anything for that.

    My Interpretationto me this song isnt necessarily about infidelity, but about love that hasnt been nurtured. a couple who met when they were young...and theyve spent many years together. but perhaps he has spent too many years loving her, but not taking it seriously or 'messing around' in his words, being immature and thinking he had forever to get it right..too many years thinking she'll just always be there, loving her but taking her for granted. he hasnt done it intentionally, but its just in his personality to be that way.

    the first verse to me feels like he has just realised whats been happening.. and what IS happening. that the relationship cannot be saved now and it will hurt more than anything theyve known to end it finally. he realises that their relationship is now dying...and he realises its his fault. he can remember their relationship and 'what is was'. he sees the relationship falling apart and admits that its his doing.

    and the girl is reminding him that she has 'worked hard for years', trying to make it work...that she has given him the best years of her life, her youth. but she knows whats done is done and cant be changed.

    i think they both are admitting that they dont 'feel it anymore'..they dont feel the love anymore. it is 'gone'. and they both simply want it all to go away now as the pain is killing them both.

    General CommentI believe that this is about a relationship between a couple where the guy has just made a terrible mistake and wants to be able to take it back, but can't figure out how so he has to admit there's no going back to himself. And the girl is pointing out how he is correct in the fact that there's no way to take back whatever he has done.

    General CommentThis song on this hauntingly heartbreaking album is the admission of the catalyst that ended the marriage- cheating. William illustrated this in a story telling setting, telling his lover "hold on, this will hurt more than anything" and we see just what it is that he did when her response is "I've worked so long just to see you mess around"

    The final verse ends with "we're alone" which brings us into the next song on the album.

    My InterpretationThe way that I interpret this song is that I can relate it to one of my good friends who committed suicide last week, I feel like that the first part of the verse is my friend, Tyler, talking about how his suicide is putting everyone through so much pain and that he knew what he had done. The second part of the first verse I feel as though it's my feelings towards him. I did so much for him because I loved him, and that I wish I could go back to when we were together all the time. The chorus is Tyler's depression and his decision to commit suicide. The second verse is like there isn't a way to turn back time. He couldn't find his way back to what he called "home". So the result is that now we're both alone. He's dead and I've lost one of my best friends.

    I've heard this song so many times over the years, and it's a very tender and beautiful song. But now that my friend died, whenever I hear this song, I think of him. I tear up every time this song plays..

    Song MeaningI interpret this to be about a couple where the husband just doesnt love his wife anymore and he wants to move on and to see other people. The wife is saying how sad she is that all of this has ended and that she regrets it-"i want back the years that you took when i was young"
