Let's leave this place behind. When we finally decide.
What's it gonna take. To make you feel alive.
What's it gonna take. To open up your eyes.

To open up your eyes.

It's time to get out of this town.
It's haunting. This presence.
It still holds you down.
Be blessed and move forward. Silent and sound.

These words don't always come out right.
And i feel that we're wasting time.
Letting go of each other. We're still holding tight.
All these words don't always come out right.
And i feel that we're wasting time. Are we wasting our time.
Are you still holding tight.

It was only fair. To look to the sky.
To breath in the air. To wade in the shallows.
With empty hands. No sense of pride.
Would you give. If we've all given up.
Till the east was ours. We drew the lines that divide.
Stapled these badges of pain to our sides.

To our sides.

We've all had our enemies. But we're leaving the past behind.
I don't feel like i'm losing sleep. But i know you can see it in my eyes.
We've all had our enemies. But we're leaving the past behind.
I don't feel like i'm losing sleep. But i know you can see it in my eyes.

You can see it in my eyes. You can see it in my eyes.

These words don't always come out right.
And i feel that we're wasting time.
Letting go of each other we're still holding tight.
All these words don't always come out right.
And i feel that we're wasting time. Are we wasting our time.
Are you still holding tight.

I'll leave my heart there by your bedside.
If you swear that your eyes won't stray.
To be honest. Open. And hoping. To find the words to say.
I'll leave my heart there by your bedside.
If you swear that your eyes won't stray.
In honesty. Honestly. I only let go for the sake of you.

    General CommentLove this song.
    I think they're trying to state the fact(in part of the song), the past is the past, and worrying about it is wasting their time.

    It also seems like a guy broke up with a girl, because she was causing him drama or vice versa, and he did it for the best.

    General CommentI'd say it's about a guy and a girl trying to separate because they feel like there's nothing between them but for some reason they keep coming back and he's questioning if they are just wasting time trying to stay apart.

    this seems like she wants to get out of the relationship to go live, and he knows that she can't go without him.

    It's time to get out of this town.
    It's haunting. This presence.
    It still holds you down.
    Be blessed and move forward. Silent and sound.

    their relationship is like complete shit. 'the presence' is always gonna be there, holding them down.

    These words don't always come out right.
    And i feel that we're wasting time.
    Letting go of each other. We're still holding tight.
    All these words don't always come out right.
    And i feel that we're wasting time. Are we wasting our time.
    Are you still holding tight.

    he's wondering if it's just a waste of time letting go. simple :P

    It was only fair. To look to the sky.
    To breath in the air. To wade in the shallows.
    With empty hands. No sense of pride.
    Would you give. If we've all given up.

    To our sides.


    he says it was a good idea getting advise from friends, but they came back empty handed, probably cuz they got no advise. and now their frieends know that they have gone to shit 'stapled these badges of pain to our sides

    We've all had our enemies. But we're leaving the past behind.
    I don't feel like i'm losing sleep. But i know you can see it in my eyes.
    We've all had our enemies. But we're leaving the past behind.
    I don't feel like i'm losing sleep. But i know you can see it in my eyes.

    You can see it in my eyes. You can see it in my eyes.

    they both have done bad shit, but they can feel like it's okay when thy're with one another, and they can see that they both hurt.

    These words don't always come out right.
    And i feel that we're wasting time.
    Letting go of each other we're still holding tight.
    All these words don't always come out right.

    I'll leave my heart there by your bedside.
    If you swear that your eyes won't stray.

    I'll leave my heart there by your bedside.
    If you swear that your eyes won't stray.
