I'm sitting here and I'm all alone
the yelling keeps me company 'cause mom and dad have forgotten how to love one another
now the tensions getting thick and mommy's running out the door
I wish I had another friend besides the one in the mirror
commissioned by the love in broken homes
everything just stops when you're sitting here all alone...
I'm sitting here and I'm all alone
there's so much love in broken homes.

    General Commentyes it's a selfer song. it's from the original demo i think... and yea unfortunately i too can relate to how it's about how children are affected by the way their parents act. The kid in the song I all depressed because of what's going on in his house. ...yeah...

    General Commenti wish sefler still was together. its awesome to listen to sefler, then go to the recernt saves the day. you can really tell they grew in their music. (lyrical and insramental) but theres still this great rawr tensity of teenage feeling in sefler. thats why u gotta love self as well as saves the day. *this is my favorite sefler song*

    General CommentSefler was the band Chris had right before Saves the Day. It had most, if not all of the original Saves the Day guys in it. They changed the name though because they decided it was to weird. I believe a sefler is someone who has sex with santa, or something really weird like that.
    Sefler had some good stuff, but Saves the Day evolved. It really is bascially the same band. At least Sefler and the Can't Slow Down era of STD.
