it's three in the morning
and i stayed up all night
drowning in my words
writing about you

time seems to standstill
since the day you left me
a revolving door
slamming this time so slowly

you're running out
you're running fast now

we were just kids back then
two years of my life
traded for an ending like this
like a love movie without a goodbye kiss

why was it me
with all sincerity
which car drove us to
drove us to this road
this road of broken promises
first it was broken glass
that fell down from the sky so fast
it hit us then

she promised but it happened again

    General CommentBest song by NFG.....its jus so amazing....i dunno it always gets me, i'm not sure exactly what its about...but liek every song it has a special meaning to every person. this song to me is abotu two people breaking up and there were jus so many things that the girl promised the guy that never happened and that was a major factor in the relationship which ended so badly

    General Commentthis is off the 'all about the girls ep' and has a really raw sound before they got into a better studio.nevertheless, its a very good song with a good chorus. 4 out of 5.

    General Commenti think this is the best song on the ep. the bridge is awesome where the drums stop and then start beating and then stop.

    General Commenthmm - i think that after listening to albums like ngcs, self title, sticks... and catalyst, nfg have progressed a lot and now - simply because catalyst is 7 years after its all about the girls - the music is much more mature and the newer songs are better and the lyrics aswell as jordans voice sound better. aswell - the instruments are very mellow and dont really sound as loud as they should - they are drowned out by jordans voice...
