Give me one good reason why I should trust
Or see the good in both of us
When we came with love and left with lust
When we came with lies we've learnt to trust
Give me good reason to believe
In all I do and all I see
In all I see

We slip into something more comfortable
They like you best when you are vulnerable

Just when you thought the world was yours
When you thougth you had it all
Just when you thought you'd done enough to
Get you through the night, the night

Give me one good reason why I should trust
In all these things that turn to dust
When we beg we get down on our knees
When we're full we want to be empty
You loved the chase 'til it slowed down
You loved the hunt 'til it hit town
'Til it hit town

Slip into something invincible

Just when you thought the world was yours
When you thougth you had it all
Just when you thought you'd done enough to
Get you through the night, the night

Who do you trust when all I know
Is just at home in all the wars?
I've been somewhere, I've been somewhere
Who do you turn to when the best of everyone
You knew has turned on you?
I've been somwhere, i've been somewhere

Just when you thought the world was yours
When you thougth you had it all
Just when you thought you'd done enough to
Get you through the night, the night

    General CommentThis is without doubt my favourite song on the new album, and oh so good to listen to in an emotional breakdown aha. I agree almost entirely with the comment above, it describes how life is, when things start going good you have it alright for a couple of weeks and then you fall back down to square one again. I've had this exact feeling lately and I honestly couldn't put it better than these guys have.

    General CommentThis song is lovely.
    I think it's about the break down of a relationship (how cliché), but it seems that it can be more openly applied to situations.

    "Just when you thought the world was yours
    When you thougth you had it all
    Just when you thought you'd done enough to
    Get you through the night, the night"

    It's like as soon as you hit the top, you fall back down again. It's the wonderful thing that life does when you're walking along smoothly and then suddenly something trips you up again.

    General CommentI without a doubt agree with the above comments, it could well deffinatly be about that, lifes a roller coster.
    But it seems to have also mentioned things about love.
