To you my friend, I send my best regards
I hope that all is well and good in Neverland
It’s been one month since goodbyes rang out and echoed long
Across the distance time had carved
It seems there’s nothing left to do since you’ve gone and left me here in the street
The taste of ocean water is bleak and the cold wind’s scraping at my bleeding feet
Why can’t I keep you from my heart?
Why is there nothing I can do but get over you
Could be regret time I’ve lost, could be I see mountaintops
Baby miss you since you’ve gone
We stared up high out where the stars almost burnt out a hole in the sky
But now the sky is faded and its burnt around the edges
From this lawn all crisp and yellow where I lie
I should have known not to seal up my mouth and leave it alone
But now I scream across this gap across this endless space
Cause you blessed me girl
Then you robbed me of my fragile world
And I miss you, girl, more then anything in the world
Take me as I am
I would do anything if only I could see you
I’m deprived of hope, I’m God’s sick joke, because he took you away
I’ve learned to hate this place
I want to burn it down and run away
Until I see your face I will loathe this house I will hate this house
Home is where the hurt is
Because its far away from you
Falling out of love is like giving up a drug
I can’t move on with my life
You have my heart as fractured as it is
Even if we have to say goodbye

    General CommentI can't believe that there arent more comments for this song. The lyrics and song are amazing! Max Bemis is a genius.

    This song is about a relatioship that he wants to continue but she dosent so hes left on his own with all his dreams shattered. He is forced to fall out of love when he is still in love, he dosent want to let go.

    General Commentdude this songs great i love it when he says

    Falling out of love is like giving up a drug

    General CommentShe died, he misses her.

    "I'm deprived of hope, I'm God's sick joke because he took you away"

    rdavis' would make sense if not for that part, but God took her away as in her literally took her life away from him, she died.

    General Commentwhoever does these lyrics sucks, "scraping" should be blowing, it's messing up the music! i also think she's dead, but there's a chance he believes everything is god's doing, a small chance.

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl that he loves moving away, not dying. max wrote this in high school and wouldn't have been able to control someone moving away.

    it's actually scary how much i can relate to this part of the song (and the whole song itself)
    but only if you change girl to boy lol

    I agree with hoplessly hopefull on this one, she died, also just gonna add the "Take me as I am, I would do anything if only I could see you." seems he's directing that at his god.

    General Comment"Take me as I am, I would do anything if only I could see you" Is directed to her. It seems like he's talking to his "God"... but think about it. He doesn't have a god for one. And, Listen to the whole song.


    He had this girlfriend, and placed her above everything else in this life. His break up was killing him. He didn't know how to react after having her put up so highly. He's talking about her.
