The balance shifts and weighs me down
Just like it used to. Tarnished fears and muffled shouts
Guide the way down. The memories always find a way
To cancel out the dreams. They shine on every last flaw
And rip at every seam. I can hear it on a clear day. (I know I can hear you).
When the light hits the water In the perfect way. The solace never stays for
long. Time proves useless
Dimly lit the kerosene On the mantle. The memories always find a way to
cancel out the dreams. They shine on every last flaw and rip at every seam. I
can hear it on a clear day.
(I know I can hear you). When the light hits the water
In the perfect way. And I can just make out the words.
They say: don't stop. I can just make out the words
(I can almost hear them sing.)

    I think he's dreaming of forgetting her, but he cant get the memories out of his head.

    General CommentTo me this song is the most "classic" TSD song there is. They have been playing it forever, and it is such a quality song that they keep playing it. And for the fans sake, they will NEVER stop playing it.

    General CommentThe memories always find a way
    To cancel out the dreams.

    thats my pick for this song. i've experienced things like this..where i felt like something could happen for me..and i get my hopes up..and then they are crushed like every other time. because of the past. because of stupid reasoning unknown to my mind. i need to get the cd soon. soooon!

    General Commenti would have to say this is one of the best emo songs that i have ever heard. of course, the other best emo songs are thin like paper and your arms the blades, but hey, whatever... my favorite lines are

    General CommentReminds me of me and my boyfriend but I've got pain in my heart while listening the part

    'Hardly awake here. If that says enough.
    Your love doesn't take here. Mine turns to dust.
    If this means anything. It doesn't mean enough
    I've done everything. And I'm still broken up'

    Hope it will b better tommorow... :(
