I sewed it up Stitched all these dead end streets
Into the sewn up seams of my heartstrings unwind(unwound)
Like a petal pulled from an open flower.
Surrounds by fields where children sign but don't make a sound and don't

Break it off
This searching for what we may never find
And that says it all.
I hope that we will make it through..

The heartbreak that comes with just living through one day
All the good times that past and all the friends we lose in a lifetime on our way.

Here in this life we seem so lost.
On this side of brightness we don't know where to go.

I hope that we can make it
Through this night.

    General CommentThis song is one of "Thursdays" best written song. Since this song isnt Cross out the Eyes or any other song they have began to play on MTV2 I guess its not so "popular". I think this song and the fans which follow is represent Thursdays true fans and not just the bandwagon crew. If you know what I mean.

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song from Thursday.. it starts off kind of soft and mellow, and it has its parts where you hear what Thursday does best.. they ROCK!

    General Commenti stalk this website!.. no one else has nearly every lyric ever written put to perfection on their site. but that's not the point. this song is so amazing. i love the string work in it. it really gives like i don't know "gratifying" effect. for me at least. their songs are a bit tough for me to crack.. but sometimes it's just cause they scream alot. can a band get any cooler? and can anyone ramble more than me?

    General CommentVocally, this song is very tame compaired to others by Thursday.. I enjoy more wild screamo, especially from these guys, but this song is pretty awesome. Thursday is absolutely the sexiest band ever.
