never expected it to arrive so soon
but as the night drifted on
it came time to say good bye
turning your back and walking away
this cold winter morning is all the remains
why wouldn't you tell me to my face
instead of hiding until i lost faith
a heart gets broken as a life gets set free
and all i asked was love me
years passed, seasons changed and i waited
(hate time to say goodbye, hate time)
soon after was the pain
that would never reach you
you've gotten over me
but it seems i'll never get over you
on me i place this blame
regrets
praying heaven will open wide
and hold you tight
as for me, i'll be alright
this impact you would have
the songs i'd write
dreams of you changing your mind
anything to pass the time
but for now
i hope you can hear me as i cry
i love you and goodbye

    General Commentdude this is such a sick song. i love it. when Dallas takes a break screaming and talks is a great touch. the intro is the best, but its all great. "a heart gets broken as a life gets set free" does it get much deeper. it's obviously about Dallas' fiance who died in a car crash. alot of their songs are about her but thats ok. Underoath is a great band, great riffs, great screaming and occasional singing, great messages, sick drumming and they're Christians. Maybe love will fund us again. Sincerely till the end. Jesus Saves.
