Somewhere under water maybe you could find my heart
'Cause that's where I threw it after you had torn it out
Three days ago
The doctor told me, "Every skyline and every night spent alone
Are tearing you apart."
Maybe I should get some help
Maybe I should fly out to Montana
I've heard it's quite quiet way out past the electric lines
Out where no one will ever know my name
Oh, I've had it now
I'm walking down to your house
I'm banging on the door
Please, please, please, Mr. Hox
Won't you tell your daughter I'm all alone
And I'm not handling this well
You never know just what you have
Until you get it yanked out of your chest
Well that's it
I'm walking to the water
I'm standing on the bank
I'm staring at my reflection
Oh my god, I look pathetic tonight
Well, guess what
I'm diving in this river
And I'm fishing out my heart
And I'm never gonna let you get your hands on this again.

    General Commentmy very first song i ever heard by saves the day, very good too, i saw saves the day in concert and they didn't play this song until they came out and did an encore, i was right in front of the band, best experience of my life.

    General Comment'Out where no one will ever know my name'

    I know exactly how that feels, wishing no one knew your name or know who you are

    General CommentIt is a good song, but you should download Lifetime. They are who Saves the Day sounds like. Lifetime was better, too.
