everyone here is just passing through
and no one's leaving, no one's leaving you.
this old place, it's just one big cliche.
and we are just the same, we are just the same.

please say that i'm worth it,
please say that you care.
please say you are letting go,
i am barely holding on.

it's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
it's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
it's {too bad it's so good, so bad it's all you.} not anymore, it's{too bad it's so good, so bad it's all you.} not anymore than what we make it.
it's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it

i am nothing short of everything
i've been exausted, like these fields of coal.
if you insist on dying slowly..
all i leave in close is usless,
if you insist on being strong enough.

please say i am worth it,
please say that you'll try.
please say you are letting go,
i am barely holding on.

it's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
it's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
it's {too bad it's so good, so bad it's all you.} not anymore, it's {too bad it's so good, so bad it's all you.} not anymore than what we make it.

and won't you burry me beneath the smallest tree,
and post a sign that said "he tried".
'cause i can't stand your mouth
and this is not what we once tried.

and won't you burry me beneath the smallest tree,
and post a sign that said "he tried".
'cause i can't stand your mouth
and this is not what we once tried.

    General Commenti think this song is about giving up on something that you've tried to get for such a long time..something that would complete your life, but it's just out of your reach and finally you just give up because it's exhausted you and you can't go on for any longer.

    General CommentIts about a dead-end town who no-one ever seems to leave... and about the girl who left and didn't take him with her...

    or so I read ;)

    to me it means someone who can't hold on anylonger and wait for things to get better....
