you always amazed me
but that's in the past
i kept silent and it rained for days
my insides were drenched
but i guess that's the part of growing up
i never wanted to learn
and i grew into the man
that you never knew
but i wouldn't be this way
if it wasn't for you
100 thank you's
if this is love
fairy tales never came true
judies are black in full bloom
and i died in the womb
take it back, all that's gone
it's all still there like you left it
december sayed the same
nothing ever changed but you
every dreams covered in dents
love can't fly tonight
couples will rest, i'll be sleepless
so cry yourself to sleep
this is about broken hearts
this is about me
bending again for nothing
i'd run to you but pain awaits
i'm comin ghome
but i'll be late
no deeper than imagination can be
sight with nothing to see
what's faith if i can't believe
it's everything
a cure, but i mike it a disease
god take me because i hate me.

    General Commentthis song made me want to cry when i heard the lyrics. it's just so close to something that happened to me. i just want everyone to know that this band isn't just any ordinary band. this isn't their only song that "hits close to home". don't overlook these guys. they're too good.

    General Commentwow, hey i just discovered this band and bought their cd. They are incredible.
    I think the song is about his love dying...and he hasnt recovered.He grew into man after her death and became someone he believes she would be proud of. He has faith he´ll see her again one day up in heaven where she is....he says he´ll be coming home, but he´ll be late, it means he will meet her in heaven, but not anytime soon.

    General CommentYeah...this song could be about God...but knowing that Dallas' Fiancee died in his arms, it's obviously about that. She died before he got the chance to really grow up...the spoken word parts make me want to cry...

    "So cry yourself to sleep...this is about broken hearts...this is about me"

    That's so depressing.

    The last line is about him wishing that he could just die because he hates himself and wants to be with her.

    General CommentThis was the first song of underoath I heard, and I haven't stopped listening to them since . I think that the ending is just about how we try so hard to be like christ, but yet we cant even come close to how he is. And with the little that we do to try to be like him we sometimes feel like failures. Maybe that doesnt make sense.
