If I should fall down would you wait for me?
If i was out would you be home?
If I should pray then would you pray with me?
If I fell in love would I be in love alone?

This isn't half of what I thought it'd be
At what point does love become routine?
I had to wait, I had to wait, I had to wait to see
That who you are is not who I hoped it'd be

Now I don't know where to go
I don't know if this thing's still working
My heart's not beating anymore
And I don't know if I bleed
Test it out just to see
Cause the best that I can hope to be
Is strong enough to leave

I never lived and died by ecstasy
Fun's never been my cup of tea
But now I try, but now I try, but now I try to be
The best I can for no one else but me

Now I don't know where to go
I don't know if this thing's still working
My heart's not beating anymore
And I don't know if I bleed
Test it out just to see
Cause the best that I can hope to be
Is strong enough to leave

You're such a shame love
What'd those animals say to ya?
You're such a shame love
What'd those animals say to ya?
You're such a shame love
What'd those animals say to ya?
What'd they do when they came for ya?
Did you think it through?
You never learn what not to do.
You're such a shame love
What those animals say to ya?
What'd they do when they came for ya?
Did you think it through?
You never learn what not to do.
A shame love.
You're such a shame love.
A shame love.

And I don't know where to go
I don't know if this thing's still working
My heart's not beating anymore
I don't know if I bleed
Test it out just to see
Is this the best that I can hope to be?
Don't know where to go
Don't know if this thing's still working
My heart's not beating anymore
Don't know if I bleed
Don't know if this thing's still working
The best that I can hope to be
Is strong enough to leave

    General CommentThis song's so brilliant!
    Bayside is such an amazing band..

    I guess that it is about someone who got cheaten by his girlfriend..
    She completely changed and he doesn't know how to react on this situation..
    He's utterly confused, frustrated and overcharged & now he is absolutely freaking out.. he kinda lost control of himself..

    Well, that's just what I think..
    Hope that someone else will post his opinion to the lyrics,
    'cause this song is just fuckin' astonishing..:)
