Upset lately
It's days like these that take away what's left of me
Or what's to come
Is it dangerous to walk back now?
Another season to erase bad memories
And wash away what's underneath

I'll get by without you
I'll pull it off somehow
Just one taste of light will set my head at ease

Just a constant quick reminder
Now and then
The haze will clear again
Wait you'll see it end
If I ever forget
The fortune we had
Turn my body away
Before I leave it, so say

I'll get by without you
I'll pull it off somehow
Just one taste of light will set my head at ease

Every day, more mundane
The world turns pink to the darkest grey
I wipe my morning eyes and travel on with the words I've sworn

Forget me
But hear the melody
Cures the storm
Gives us an easy way home
Radio
Signals come in clear
Lead me to that place that I call home

I'll get by without you
I'll pull it off somehow
Keep my word from sinking every single day
I'll get by without you
I pulled it off somehow
You're the only place in my light I call home

    General CommentThe singer is having major problems in his relationship and is acknowledging that it is going to have to end...sometimes he is reminded of why he loves her and how he wishes that things could work out, but then he has to tell himself that he has to live without her because each day things are becoming worse and worse:
    Every day, more mundane
    The world turns pink to the darkest grey
    I wipe my morning eyes and travel on with the words I've sworn

    nonetheless, he is still having regrets and wishing that he didn't have to end things because he just wants things to go back to how they were before.

    J18 is awesome. beautiful musicians and lyricists. WARPED TOUR.

    General CommentThis is a great song.... however i think the last line is "You're the only place in my HEART i call home"

    I, of course, could be wrong though :-)
