Now that I've hit the bottom
You've taken everything from me
You never really listened
You'll never hear again from me
I've never been this down before
You've never understood
I've never been this down before
And I've never felt so good

Abandon ship, cause I'm going down
You can jump first, cause I'd rather drown
These restless nights, under this brilliant sky
Is it too late to ask for a kiss goodnight?

You're trying to remember
I'm dying to forget
You said this was forever
But those words I regret
What happens when I'm not around
Do you ever think of me?
Burn my heart onto the ground
Until there's nothing left of me

This plane's gonna crash straight into the ground
No one to stop me, now that you're not around
I can't turn back now, after what you have done
You stole my parachute, and I only had one

"I love you" never holds its meaning
When you look for greener pastures
You've got your memories; you've got your pictures
So have you found all your stupid answers?

One day I'll stop breathing
And one day you'll believe in me

Believe in me

    General CommentIt seems like his heart is torn...the breakup is a relief, but breaks the heart at the same time. "you stole my parachute and I only had one"...he gave her all he had. She took it and now she's gone. Definately a breakup song...the most beautiful song done by them (in my humble opinion :)

    General CommentHey everyone, I want you all to know I just added my band, Answer Burning Out, to this website and I would love it if you guys checked us out just so I could see what some other people think of the lyrics. We don't have songs available for download yet, so sorry, anyways, I live for emo and all music really, so I would love it if I could get some opinions from some people that I know love this music just as much as I do. We haven't posted all of our songs yet just cuz right now I am too lazy but there are a few. Thanks you guys.

    General CommentI love them so much too. They're awesome guys. They've helped me through the worst of times. I love all their songs, especially this one. To me this song relates to more than just break-ups, I can relate it to so much in my life. The most breath taking part is ... "one day I'll stop breathing and one day you'll believe in me." I heart T.C.P.
