I Can't See Through The Tears In My Eyes (x2)
I Can't Breathe

I feel I failed
I was meant to make you smile
I was meant to make you shine
To make you shine

They said this could never happen
They said we could never be
Are you telling me you listened

I was meant to make you smile
I was meant to make you shine

So there's no you and me
And we can't live this way forever
You said you'd run away with me
You'd run away

That we'd escape from the ordinary
That we'd escape from the world that tied us down
That we'd escape from the ordinary
That we'd escape from the world that tied us down

Now this is over and the world falls upon me
I never expected to be here alone
The shadows are forming as we burst into flames
Why does this end this way (x2)

    General CommentThis is my favorite song.:)
    And I totally love how Hiatus is the beginning then it fades into this.:)
    Asking Alexandria is great.
    And they have some of the greatest breakdowns.:)
    Truly amazing.

    General CommentThat we'd escape from the ordinary
    That we'd escape from the world that tied us down
    That we'd escape from the ordinary
    That we'd escape from the world that kept us apart*

    My InterpretationThis song is quite obviously a breakup song. He is angered by his girl breaking up with her, or maybe she cheated, I don't really know. But either way he is quite angry at this girl.

    General CommentOHKAY., Asking Alexandria is a pretty epic band<3
    This is my favorite song;) but I think it means that a girl and him were trying so hard to be., or he was.
    Everybody was tearing them apart, ect. He though they could make it through but the girl ended up believing everything everybody was saying:l and now he's alone., and the song title 'If you can't ride two horses at one, then you should get out of the circus<3' means that if you can't handle the realationship (two horses) then you shouldn't be, (circus). Other than that I Fu**ckin' love this band,. And they must come out with a new CD soon or I'll die:/ ASKING ALEXANDRIA<3:)

    General CommentI honestly can't say this is my favorite. Because I love all of their songs way too much to choose a favorite :) But, if I had to choose a favorite, it would definitely be this one, a single moment of sincerity, hey there mr brooks, and a candlelit dinner with inamorta

    General Comment'So there's no you and me
    And we can't live this way forever
    You said you'd run away with me
    You'd run away'


    listen properly it sounds like
    'so they told you and me
    howwe cant live this way forever'
