She wants it
He doesn't want enough
She dreams it
He dreams in shades of blue
She holds on
He lets go of all they know
He's living
She's dying way too young

(Chorus)
A girl so strong
Broken one by one
Day by day
She runs away
from the ones who really love
A girl so strong
Broken one by one
They say that home is where the heart aches
But in her case
Home is where the heart makes her
the one we love
It's been so long
since he's seen your face
An image that he can not replace
It's been so long
since she's been gone
Her love's with us for ever long

She sees him.
He never sees a thing
He breathes it.
She's choking on her own heart

(Chorus)

It's been so long
since he's seen your face
An image that he can not replace
It's been so long
since she's been gone
Her love's with us for ever long

(Chorus)

    General CommentYeah...I really like this song. I love how keepsake has like...different kinds of music and they're all good. I don't know..like comparing this to 'sleep' to 'papercuts and broken hearts'...they're all so different but all incredibly awesome. But anyways, back to the song...I don't think I understand all of it together...but I think it's the kind of song where most people can pull peices from it and totally relate to it. I agree with onlyindreams...i also like "shes choking on her own heart.." Yea..so dude did I like totally miss them go on tour??? I've been checking for like a year to see about shows and they're never on tour..and then just the other day I saw they had a show in cali and i was like ARGGG...get to NY yo. lol well yah...this comment is overly long and pointless. I'll end- good band. :o)

    General CommentThis song is one of the best on the End of Sound, and even though they cut out a lot of screaming on that record, if this song had some background screaming it would be so amazing. Not saying its not as it is, but it would've made it ten times better.
