This feeling is so relative to where I am tonight
If you only knew
You're sleeping on a cloud
and I'm barely off the ground
That's nothing new

You left me in the water
And everybody knew I would drown for you
And everything reminds me

There's a place we used to know
Bullet-proof in all black clothes
In all black
I wanted you but never told
I went nowhere, you went gold
You went gold

This time you're in color
Are you hoping I would see
Is it working out
The words you use are different
But it sounds the same to me
I know what gets you down

And everything reminds me
All of this reminds me

There's a place we used to know
Bullet-proof in all black clothes
In all black
I wanted you but never told
I went nowhere, you went gold
You went gold
You went gold

Something here is different
Where I used to have a chance
I don't know you now
I've always been so reckless
But I can't get over this
You're not helping out

And everything reminds me
All of this reminds me

There's a place we used to know
Bullet-proof in all black clothes
In all black
I wanted you but never told
I went nowhere, you went gold
You went gold

    General CommentSuch a great song...

    I can relate to this song so much.

    "Left me in the water, and everybody knew, I would drown for you"
    "And everything reminds me"

    "I wanted you but never told"

    I tear up everytime I listen to this song... I can't wait to hear the rest of the album though!
