[Justin Wiley]
Do you feel the same?
I've given it time
But you went away
And left me to die
Time goes on and on and on again
But I just feel worse
I soldier on and on and on
But you won't return

[Jessica Leplon]
I've seen heaven and hell, made too much of myself
Built this world on my shoulders for a story to tell
I've been broken and bruised, left my lungs overused
Watched you walk away
Watched you walk away

[Justin Wiley & Jessica Leplon]
There was a time when I
Counted on you to be here for me
Now that seems naive
Life goes on and on and on
And I just stand still
You move on and on and on
And nothing feels real

[Aaron Marsh of Copeland]
Here..lay still
Open my heart
Feel it slow
I pulled you out
The way I fell in
If you turn to me now I could only say this
Now if you're scared to death like me
But you'll not get a bit of rest
For the pounding and calling at a door in your little chest
If you're scared to death like me, close your eyes
Just close your eyes

    General CommentI think that the line "For the pounding and calling at a door in your little chest" is referring to Revelation 3:20, which says "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me."

    General CommentI think it says "I pulled you out the way I fell in."

    Anyway, in an interview, Jessica and Justin stated that this song was about their ups and downs in the music industry. They said it's about all of the people who were helping them leaving suddenly. And the part Aaron Marsh sings was written by him and sent to the band, so the bible reference sounds good to me.
