"Daybreak" as written by and Christopher Lane Conley....
My Heart is gone,
It drove to the shore,
Swam out in the night,
Way out past the lines,
I heard that now,
It lives in the south,
of West Central Spain,
Drinking off the pain,
I don't blame it,
I'm filled with regret,
I wish I were him,
I could crawl out my skin,
Because inside, I'm broke,
I'm cracked, I'm alone,
No hope for a change,
No way to erase,
The world would be,
Better without me,
So How could this be?
Somehow, you love me.
Somehow, you love me.
Somehow, you live me.

I stepped out to see the stars fall,
Alone on the neighbor's lawn.
I held my hand on my head,
Now I'm waiting to hear you call


I'm going out my mind,
I'm giving up the fight this time,
So love me all and go, no longer care if I die alone

The whole world is waiting, watching to see when your gonna fall,
Ten thousand faces staring and your back is against the wall,
Fucked up pass the point of fixing, so tell me what went wrong

I'm going out my mind,
I'm giving up the fight this time,
Love me all and go, no longer care if I die alone,

Cause' in the darkness of my mind,
I used to dream of suicide,
I'm gonna pull myself out,
Before I die.

I'm going out my mind,
I'm giving up the fight this time,
Love me all and go, no longer care if I die alone,

Now it's eight in the morning,
up all night just walking around.
I'm hiding out here under the window
by the sink where we used to laugh all day long.
I wait till I see you walking
from the bedroom down to the kitchen.
Fingering your hand into curls while talking
on the phone resting on your collarbone.

Here I come again, head is hanging low.
You put down the phone, take me in our arms.
And I'm all alone with you my love.
And did you hear me coming?

Running over the words I said last night.
While wishing I never saw your eyes
swell up with tears dripping down your thighs.
I can't let it go, I'm lost inside.

I can get so low.
Seems like there's no up and I'm all alone
So take me in your arms knowing I'm the one.


I turn around to say how could you still love me.
Sun is shining, lighting up your face.
You stare off into space not knowing what to say.
Searching for the words to set things straight so I say...

I'm a Zig Zag sideways, upside down, out of my mind
What's the point of living if were all just born to die.
You say why?
Why ask why?

I say "I get fucked up."
You say "delusional."
Somehow will you still open arms.

"Come with me" you say.
We step outside to face the sun.
Yesterday I dream that it would all bend out to dust.


Take a breath, turn around.
See the sun come through the clouds, the light alive in your eyes.
Standing here by your side of an arm under the sky.
I know I want to hold on.

The letters left on the lawn.
The shadows crawling the wall.
The mirror shatters and falls.

I've been lost for so long, no more will to carry on.
So dark and dead in the seas.
Nothing left in the end.
And to pray is to pretend.
I'm tired of trying to believe.

So can we learn to forget.
I wanna hold you again.
Can we love remember our love.

I can get so low.
Seems like there's no up and I'm all alone
So take me in your arms knowing I'm the one.

    Lyric CorrectionI. Somehow You Love Me

    My heart is gone
    It drove to the shore
    Swam out in the night
    Way out pass the lines
    I heard that now
    It lives in the south
    Of west central Spain
    Drinking off the pain
    'Cause inside I'm broke
    I'm cracked, I'm alone
    No hope for a change
    No way to erase
    The world would be
    Better without me
    So how could this be?
    Somehow you love me
    Somehow you love me
    Somehow you love me


    II. Fucked Up Past The Point Of Fixing

    Stepped out to see the stars fall alone on the neighbors lawn.
    I held my hand on my head down waiting to hear your call.
    I thought I saw your headlights in the dark driving by our house.

    I'm going out my mind.
    I'm giving up the fight this time.
    Love me or let go, no longer care if I die alone.

    Whole world is waiting, watching to see when your gonna fall.
    Ten thousand faces staring, your back is against a wall.
    Fucked up pass the point of fixing, so tell me what went wrong.

    I'm going out my mind.
    I'm giving up the fight this time.
    Love me or let go, no longer care if I die alone.

    'Cause in the darkness of my mind I used to dream of suicide.
    I'm gonna pull myself out before I die.

    I'm going out my mind.
    I'm giving up the fight this time.
    Love me or let go, no longer care if I die alone.


    III. 8 AM

    Now it's eight in the morning,
    Up all night just walking around.
    I'm hiding out here under the window
    By the sink where we used to laugh all day long.

    I wait till I see you walking
    From the bedroom down to the kitchen.
    Fingering your hair into curls while talking
    On the phone resting on your collarbone.

    Here I come again, head is hanging low.
    You put down the phone, take me in your arms.
    And I'm all alone, with you, my love.
    Did you hear me coming?

    Running over the words I said last night
    While wishing I never saw your eyes
    Swell up with tears dripping down your thighs.
    I can't let it go, I'm lost inside.

    I can get so low.
    Seems like there's no up and I'm all alone
    So take me in your arms knowing I'm the one.


    IV. Zig Zag

    I turn around to say how could you still love me.
    Sun is shining, lighting up your face.
    You stare off into space not knowing what to say.
    Searching for the words to set things straight so I say...

    I'm a Zig Zag sideways, upside down, out of my mind
    What's the point of living if were all just born to die.
    You say why? Why ask why?

    I say "I get fucked up."
    You say "delusional."
    Somehow will you still open your arms?

    "Come with me" you say, we step outside to face the sun
    Yesterday I dream that it would all burn down to dust.


    V. Daybreak

    Take a breath, turn around.
    See the sun come through the clouds
    The light alive in your eyes.
    Standing here by your side
    On an arm under the sky.
    I know I want to hold on.

    The letters left on the lawn.
    The shadows crawling the wall.
    The mirror shatters and falls.

    I've been lost for so long,
    No more will to carry on.
    So dark and dead and diseased.
    Nothing left in the end
    And to pray is to pretend.
    I'm tired of trying to believe.

    So can we learn to forgive?
    I wanna hold you again.
    Can we remember our love?

    I can get so low.
    Seems like there's no up and I'm all alone
    So take me in your arms knowing I'm the one.

    General Comment just cant wait for the album now i had lost my acoustic mp3 of this when my computer decided to go crazy. part 5 daybreak is my favourite. the song on a whole is a mix of all the emotions found on Sound the Alarm and Under the Boards up until the last part which is the most uplifting part of any Saves song. this is gonna be awesome hopefully it wont be too much longer.
