Do you pray in the night?
Can you appreciate the winds?
And I won't care, or fight.
I need you close to sing, it's the same beginning

Gone away,
It's the same old, same old song
Gone away,
It's my whole life in words

And I can't breathe when you cry
But I'll be there to hold you tight
And I would kill, I would fight
To keep you close, I keep singing the same way
I won't live if you died
If I could feel you in the wind
And this is me, it's my life
I need you close to sing, it's the same beginning

Gone away,
It's the same old, same old song
Gone away,
It's my whole life in words

Gone away,
It's the same old, same old song
Gone away,
It's my whole life

And I can't sing,
And I don't know ,
I'll fall,
I'm gone,
And I can't sing,
And I don't know.
I'll fall,
I'm gone,

Gone away,
It's the same old, same old song
Gone away,
It's my whole life in words

Gone away,
It's the same old, same old song
Gone away,
It's my whole life

    General Comment:"And I can't breathe when you cry
    But I'll be there to hold you tight
    And I would kill, I would fight
    To keep you close, I keep singing the same way
    I won't live if you died
    If I could feel you in the wind
    And this is me, it's my life " These lyrics are probably some of the most romantic lyrics i have ever heard. I mean yes there are plenty of others better and this isnt really much of a love song. But don't get me wrong i interpret this song as basically this guy can't do anything without this girl. To me thats really romantic. I won't live if you died is really good. Its like he feels her pain and he wants her to know he will always be there for her.

    General Comment:Note: * means I'm not completely sure of the words. The version of the song I have was kind of jumbled in those places, so if the words are wrong, my apologies in advance :)

    As for what the song means..
    Well, I suppose for me it had a dual meaning. Most of the lyrics by Cold are centered on singing (13 Ways to Bleed on Stage)..but they also talk about love in some ways. Either way, a fierce protection of what is *theirs* stands out in this.

    General Comment:Well, I agree with oxym0ronical that most Cold songs are about singing. However, it seems that you can definitely interpret those meanings into something you yourself cherish. And a lot of their songs have to do with love, like gone away. It seems without the girl he loves, he can't sing. So he wants to keep her close "And I would kill, I would fight
    To keep you close, I keep singing the same way
    I won't live if you died
    If I could feel you in the wind
    And this is me, it's my life
    I need you close to sing, it's the same beginning"

    just my opinion

    General Comment:I totally agree with LiveUrLife. Also, this song remind me so much of this girl I know, Tammy, in one of my classes at BHS, and reminds me of how I feel about her. Tammy I hope you can read this sometime. I love you

    General Comment:God I love this song. This has to be one of the best songs that i have heard in a really long time. I started listening to this song when i was going threw some really hard times. This song just basically symbolized what i was going threw and that is why i have such a connection with it.

    General Comment:i feel the song is about scooters daughter raven and how bad it hurts him to leave her every time he goes on tour, so he wrote this song to her because he's missing seeing her growing up.
