Come the day we understand
Will we shout out at once?
Do we always run away on our own time?

You thought I would leave you down
When the weight was too much
I will lift you from the ground

Don't you feel we're both in the storm?
(take, take another life)
I keep fighting the wind so you know why
Even those that doubt us believe
(take, take another life)
We must be the only ones breathing
Still you push away

Call the ones that hold your hand
Do they shout out at once
Make a point to fall in line and remind you?

You thought I would leave you down
When the weight was too much
I will lift you from the ground

Don't you feel we're both in the storm?
(take, take another life)
I keep fighting the wind so you know why
Even those that doubt us believe
(take, take another life)
We must be the only ones breathing
Still you push away
Still you push away

All the words found alone
All the homes found in pieces
Climb around
Why the doubt?
Where's the liar?
What's the reason?

You thought I would leave you down
When the weight was too much
I will lift you from the ground

    General CommentIn my own personal opinion I think its about a relationship. The relationship sounds like it might not be doing to well, and one person is trying really hard saying that they can trust them, but the other person has trust issues or something along those lines and thinks that the person who's trying really hard will "Leave them down".

    General CommentI think this song was strongly influenced by Carah's leaving of Shiny Toy Guns. It doesn't seem like they left on good terms. I'm finding it difficult to figure out what happened when the band split, but if you look at the lyrics of Versant's songs I get the picture Carah was left because she felt hurt and betrayed. The lyrics of Out of Touch also seem to support this.

    General Comment-In an interview, I remember her saying something about thet "Push Away" was originally written, by her and another Versant member, for Shiny Toy Guns.;;\

    Personally, I'm glad she's doing Versant now because, don't get me wrong, Chad[STG] can sing reeeally good but I mainly listened to Carah wen she was with them lol. So just hearing her fer Versant? I'm lovin it!! :D
