I can't tell you where I've been now darling
There are hawks inside my head
And every smile and every good thing
Are picked at 'til they are dead
"I love you" was all she said
That's all she said


From that old street
To that new house
To those beautiful hills inside your blouse
To the rain that kept falling
And those years off the rails
When we smiled like two sailors With holes in our sails
When I turned to a coma with a black hole in my chest
When a kiss was the cure and I'd save my breath
When you'd walk to the bedroom and I'd fall on the couch
If I wasted your beauty I'll ignite it somehow
'Cause a dream can be cruel
When it haunts you like this
With your eyes like a deer
And the words from your lips
What I'm trying to say is
I was afraid that you'd leave
So I slept with my failures and I started to grieve

I started to grieve
I started to grieve

    General Commentthe way matthew ryan sings this song... this is exactly how you feel when you realize you've lost someone. you cant breath, its hard to talk, to form sentences, words.
    this song has. said everything i cant. everything i am afraid to say, everything i am ashamed of. it is truly beautiful.

    General Commenti love this song...it's slow and every note sounds perfect

    as for the meaning, i think it's about the downfall of a relationship. it's pretty self explanatory if you let the words and the music flow together.
