Did you wake up in someone else's arms?
I guess it's safe to say that we're not okay.
Don't make a move.
Did you get drunk and run away again?
I'm getting kind of tired of all the lies,
I'm over you.

And I let go of what we had inside,
The tortured promises could start the scene
of you and I.
There's no happy ending here right now,
Understand I'm not just letting go,
I'm walking out. Stay forever gone.

Everybody if I could please have your attention,
This conversation is killing me.
Tie me up and light the match, I'm sorry.
I won't try to save the past again.

I can't blame myself I swear It's you,
It's never been this clear and now it seems
It's only true.
To choke the life out of this empty fix,
I've never been so sure of letting go,
I'm walking out. Stay forever gone.

When I wake up in someone else's arms,
I hope it's hard to breathe when you think of me.
I'm over you...

    Song MeaningThis is actually a really good song! love these lyrics.
    I think its about when some one breaks up with you and you still love/like them, you don't really think straight. This is the kinda the point when you realise the other person doesnt feel the same and you decide its best to stop trying to fix things and just let go and move on.

    "tie me up and light the match, I'm sorry. I won't try to save the past again."

    Perfect line to sum up the song. Basically letting go of the past.

    Thats my opinion! great band but need more songs!
