Pretty words roll off of your tongue
Come out of your mouth heard by everyone
So convincing I believed it
For so long I still can't figure out
Why many wont last, why many wont last
With the blink of your eye it's all gone away
... please give me one more stay, I guess that's why I feel I'm losing again...

Miles we've walked the moons we've seen
Leave it all behind and start a new beginning.
I won't keep you searching when there's nothing left to find

[Chorus:]
'cause I'm not ready for this life... ready for this life
But I'm ready for tonight, I'm still wondering why
... days convincing me once we'd never be strong, this is goodbye...

Tears fall down like the mourning rain
A taste of strain does
Something's getting compromised
Fall in or fallen the damage is done
And there's no convincing with these words you've spoken

(Repeat Chorus)

Pretty words roll off of your tongue
Come out of your mouth heard by everyone
So convincing I believed it for so long
Still I can't figure out when you were wrong
... everything you ever said would ever make this right or guilty
Now you say you wonder why you're my best ex-friend...

Pretty words roll off of your tongue
Come out of your mouth heard by everyone
So convincing I believed it for so long
Still I can't figure out why
... everything you ever said would ever make this right or guilty
Now you say you wonder why you're my best ex-friend...

(Repeat Chorus)

'cause I'm not ready for this life
But I'm ready for tonight, I'm still wondering why
... days convincing me once we'd never be strong, this is goodbye...
Days convince...

    General CommentWho's the lead singer? I only hear Shawn in the background? And the screaming's different from Dennis's, Shane's, Huck's, and especially Shawn's... So, is this Alesana?

    General CommentAlesana is my favorite band, but I've never gotten to know this song.
    I'm listening to it right now.. and it really doesn't sound like them at all. The music doesn't have the beauty. The voices are different too, only Shawn's is in the background.
    The lyrics don't even look like theirs. All of their songs are always full of metaphors too, this one I don't really see them.
    This is really odd..
