12:14 hits 12:15 quickly as I hear
The sounds of people's voices who i used to find so real
So sweet, so pure, so refined and so clear
Your scent and your touch are all I need to feel
NOT DREAMING, NOT THINKING, JUST DROWNING AND SINKING
HOPING FOR A BREATH OF AIR
(Someone to save me)
BELIEVING AND SEEING THE WAYS YOU'RE DECIEVING
IS THIS HELD WITHOUT A CARE?
(Everything's on me)
Fading away in the crashing of the waves
Dying just to feel you here
In the confort of my arms
And as I slip and fall into the ocean deep
I can feel you with me, and I sense no harm
Watching the waves crashing overhead
Thinking of the ways I could have made this better
Feeling my living self become dead
Wanting to feel this free forever
Will I fall into the seas of your misfortune?
I'll try to hold my breath
1,000 times
Before I start to close my eyes
I'll picture your face in my mind
And my dying lips will be forced to crack a smile
Not feeling, not thinking, just drowning and sinking
WANTING ONLY TO FEEL THIS FREE FOREVER

    General Commentandy wrote this one, so i can't be positive as to what he meant by it, but the atmosphere of the song is pretty much summed up in the last line "wanting only to feel this free forever."

    General Commenti can positively feel this song. i can feel it to the extent of pain. what it means to me is that you're only reaching for something, a feeling, for such a long time. and then you reach it but once you're there you know it has to end because everything ends sometime. it's that bittersweet realization of finality. that's what i feel. great lyrics and brilliant imagery.

    General CommentI Agree with ladyjustice, I believe this is about a guy who kills a girl and buries her in a shallow grave in the woods...'when the dogs begin to smell her'.

    I can see how you could interpret this song in many ways. However, 'when I'll try to hold my breath' doesn't necessarily mean that she's dead and buried. Wanting to feel free could be understood as worthless men beginning to sniff around her, trying to get with her. And 'And my dying lips will be forced to crack a smile' could be thought of as will she be the only one that these men are after, or does she stand a chance of avoiding them.
    Dogs could also mean ruin. That when ruin finds her, will she just go down, or will he go down too. Just a thought or two about this song. It is such a great song I'd hate to think that it's about a rape victim.
    The only person that can truly tell us the meaing to this song, of course, is Bob Saget.
