"You Couldn't See This Coming" as written by Mark Hockings and Richard James Silverthorn....
You hold nothing back
Words come spilling through the cracks
And I can’t stem the flow
Drowning as you go

I can’t take in
All that’s passed is crumbling away
Not coming home
Everything has changed

It’s like your life is stuck on hold
More and more you lose control
Every smile is dead and cold

But that’s alright

You couldn’t see this coming
You only took your eye off the ball
You’d never hurt anyone I know
You hurt yourself much more
You couldn’t be more sorry
I’ve never seen such pain before
You’ll never forgive yourself I know
But you can live with that I’m sure

I can’t feel my skin
Everything is caving in
And I’m numb,
Melting down
Everything is wrong
I need more time
To cross the t’s and dry your eyes
And I want to turn back
Nothing I can say

It’s like your life is stuck on hold
More and more you lose control
Every smile is dead and cold

But that’s alright

You couldn’t see this coming
You only took your eye off the ball
You’d never hurt anyone I know
You hurt yourself much more
You couldn’t be more sorry
I’ve never seen such pain before
You’ll never forgive yourself I know
But you can live with that I’m sure

    General CommentI am dreadfully curious to hear the true meaning behind these lyrics.

    All I can pull together is a suicide following an especially harsh breakup.
