Before the sun is down today
I have a feeling of the
words that she'll say
putting all my feelings to a close
my friends already know
just let me keep my dignity
just say it to my face
or understand
what it's like to give a second chance
we'll see

tonight
I'll stand
In the light
So you can count how many tears fall from my eyes
this time I'll be alright
my heart can't get any worse

Today is just another break up day
It's my least favorite holiday
I think this time I'll stand up for myself
While you sit down
What's gonna happen anyway
I guess it's best you gave up right away
We can't be friends
Moving so fast headed for the end
we're done

tonight
I'll stand
In the light
So you can count how many tears fall from my eyes
this time I'll be alright
my heart can't get any worse

tonight
I'll stand
In the light
So you can count how many tears fall from my eyes
this time I'll be alright
my heart can't get any worse

    General CommentThank You to whoever submitted that correction. This was the first lyric I typed out on my own, so I was a little rusty...I still am.

    General CommentI'm still not over my 'break-up day' and that was a little over three months ago. To me, this song hits right at home, because its the worst feeling to care for someone so much, and finally realize they dont feel the same way. Then when Kenny says "we can't be friends"--this means to me he cant stand just being friends because if he does he'll just want more, and she would just be a reminder of something he had, but can never have again.

    General CommentI love this unreleased song by TSL... in and interview Ken said all the unreleased songs they were going to be re-recording for their new record... unfortunately this wasn't one of them... i belive they were... "Almost There, Going Nowhere"... "Left Coast Envy"... "Drama Summer"... and one more... "Forever in a Day" i believe but i will post again when I'm positive. *RH*

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song by TSL... Everyone can relate to this song, it reminds me of my ex...cuz we he broke up with me he couldnt even do it to my face!!! "tonight I'll stand in the light so you can count how many tears fall from my eye" is the best line of the whole song.... TSL KICKS ASS!!!!

    General CommentThis is definitely my song of the 'mo. Break-ups suck but it's great when you can find song that descrbes how you feel. Makes ya feel like everyone else has been through it.
