hold the phone
but don't hold your breath.
this is not a test.
it's not a question
of what i feel for you..

oh, and i'm sorry too.
did we go too far,
too far to return
to the way things were..?

remember those
nights that i spent
in your arms
feelings so wonderful
i wonder where
they've gone.

but i cant find
the reason why
why i've run away
from you
why i've run away

so tonight,
when i look you
straight in the eyes
and conversation runs dry,
and i see nothing...
nothing..

and i know
you would never hurt me
the way i hurt you...

    General Commentthis song is how the guy is supposed to feel after being so close for a few months, spending all their time together, even though he's leaving... and in order to cut it short and keep himself from hurting he ends the relationship early destroying the girl.... i hope he feels this way.

    General Commentno he says its not a question of what he feels for her but hes scared they went too far probly too fast and he misses how he used to feel and he doesnt know why he doesnt feel the same"but i cant find

    from you
    why i've run away "

    General CommentI agree completely with Ryan, their relationship went to fast and strained their feelings for each other. This is such a great song, the vocals are delivered with such emotion and strength.

    General CommentI agree with the two previous posts. He just seems so unsure that he's run away and now questions everything. Absolutely, sung with such emotion and strength, and their lead singer has such a great voice.
