These vacant hands
Wanted only to hold you
Your tired soul
Unfolding from the inside out
You opened up your heart
And let it go
Consumed with all the drama
And it shows
Still taking a lifetime
Isn't it funny
How much we learn about ourselves
When it rains it pours
And I hear breathing is involuntary
So someone keep reminding me
I let you down
Make a wish

    General Commentthis song was there at some of the greatest points of this summer. it is the kind of song that has all the right words and all the right melodies. if you don't have the cd, i recommend it highly to anyone that is a fan of emotional and very melodic emo. deepelm.com
