I used to feel so invincible
'Til I was seconds away from losing everything
There's nothing worse than feeling alone
And my world was falling with noone to catch me
It all seemed so trivial
I guess I'm not as strong, not even close

On my own
Never been more afraid to leave
Our love has gone
Hand in hand, and we'll sing this song
We've lost our homes
It's only gonna get better
If we work as one
Tomorrow can be brighter for us all

Alone now and again, and maybe after
I can just skip straight through the second chapter
Wake up with my whole life around me
Blink twice, it's falling to pieces
It can't be worse than being alone
And my world was falling with noone to catch me

It all seemed so trivial
I guess I'm not as strong, not even close

On my own
Never been more afraid to leave
Our love has gone
Hand in hand, and we'll sing this song
We've lost our homes
It's only gonna get better
If we work as one
Tomorrow can be brighter for us all

We're all part of it
Can't deny it
Our hearts are all bleeding as one
From the east side to the west side
I'll turn my back on noone

I'm on my own
Never been more afraid to leave
Our love has gone
Hand in hand, and we'll sing this song
We've lost our homes
It's only gonna get better
If we work as one
Tomorrow can be brighter for us all
Tomorrow can be brighter for us all

    My OpinionWow, no-one's commented this? This song rocks! ^_^ I think the title, America Underwater, and some of the lyrics (We've lost our homes/only gonna get better if we work as one) is about rebuilding after a disaster (hurricane, flood, etc.). But here they also use metaphors to stand for love. It's really very cool.

    Song MeaningWow, ppl need to comment on this more. It's an amazing song by an amazing band. I think it may be like a community coming together after a big disaster to rebuild what was lost. It also has elements for a relationship being broken and, with both sides working equally, it can be rebuilt. When he sings "I used to feel so invincible 'Til I was seconds away from losing everything", he's kinda saying that he thought the relationship was picture perfect and nothing would ever damage it and when it began to break is when ehe realized how much it meant to him (hence concidering it everything). Just my take on it though
