"My Life Inside Your Heart" as written by and Principe/mcilrath/barnes/wleklinski....
Fighting back the impulse
Turn my head and close my eyes
Spending these nights awake and cold and paralyzed
Wonder how we got this far and
Never realized the common thread that binds our lives
And I know you hurt
But I can help you if you can...

Take my hand
And we'll live inside the dreams we left behind
Take my hand
As we move from this place to a better life
Take my hand
(If you take my hand)

Fighting back the feeling that you always could deny
Anything but everything we know is just a lie
As I cremate this memory and watch the darkened ashes rise
And beneath the smoke
I'll stand and ask you if you can

Take my hand
And I'll promise not to ever let it go
Take my hand
'Cause this hope is greater than you'll ever know
(Take my hand)

And this is all I'll ever ask of you to show
Fight back the urges
Turn my head and close my eyes
And will I wake tomorrow still alive

I'm still dreaming
I'm still waiting
I'm still sure
(I'm still sure)
You're still living in a life
That isn't yours
(That isn't yours)
And this is part of me
I hope you never see
This is my life inside your heart

Take my hand
And I'll promise not to ever let it go
Take my hand
'Cause this hope is greater than you'll ever know
(Take my hand)
And this is all I'll ever ask of you to show

    General CommentThis song is so wonderful. It's a plea to a loved one obviously. A pouring out of the heart that he wants her to see, but is at the same time somewhat ashamed. He wants things the way they were before, and he wants her back. I relate to this song so much, as it pertains to every aspect of my life.

    General Commentheh well i'm sure your all thinking it's about a thriving relationship between two ppl that love eachother very much. but like half the songs out there it reminds me of my relationship that crashed and burned worse than anything i've ever seen. and yet i miss it. i still hope she'll change her ways. stop lying. stop cheating. and love me like i loved and completely and utterly devoted myself to her. just like all eyes by thrice this reminds me of my G/F of 2 and a half yrs. have you ever hated something or someone sooooo much but at the same time you miss them and need them more than anything. i'm so confused.

    General Commentgood song but the lyrics on here are wrong....

    "as i creamate this memory and watch the darkened ashes rise, and beneath this smoke i'll stand and ask you if you can" then "this hope is greater then you'll ever know"

    General CommentYou guys are complete idiots. Its not about girls!!! its about someone destroying themselves, and how they refuse assistance.

    General Commentthe way i see it its about a guy who has always liked or loved a girl but the girl thinks of him as just a friend and he is trying to convince her that he loves her and that he wants a relationship with her and wants her to take his hand. probably wrong but thats what i get
