Taste my words dear, feel them renewing
Feel them renew false promises, promises
I could smell your fear when I told you that we would have to walk into the dark
And look where you're wandering now

Sing out the words I couldn't say yesterday now
I've grown from everything you made me
Listen closely now like a ghost from the past as I'm rising

Twist your words dear, mold them into these
Mold them into false promises, promises
Never shed a tear when you turned your back
Drift away, but I'll rise from the ash

So are you listening? 'Cause I want you to hear me now

Sing out the words I couldn't say yesterday now
I've grown from everything you made me
Listen closely now like a ghost from the past as I'm rising

Days will pass you by, leave your motions dry
Stripping petals of shrivelled roses
You'll start to wonder why

Sing out the words I couldn't say yesterday now
I've grown from everything you made me
Listen closely now like a ghost from the past as I'm rising

Sing out the words I couldn't say yesterday now
I've grown from everything you made me
Listen closely now like a ghost from the past as I'm rising
As I'm rising

    My OpinionTo me, this song about someone in an unhealthy relationship with someone and they're finally letting that person go. The chorus is basically saying "I couldn't say this when I was your little lovesick puppy because I was blinded by love but now that I can see, you can't hold me back and I won't be smothered by you anymore. You've made me into a strong person and I will rise from the hurting!"
    But hey thats my opinion & I love this song so much!!!

    General Commentyou can't be blinded by love, only by infatuation..people's idea of love are distorted, media-polluted society, fed with lies and molded into deceived puppets, real love cannot be defined in one sentence and it's not a feeling, it's a action, not meaningless sex and such modern-day, twisted nonsense. people must rise from their deceived state of mind and clouded understanding.
