I am Tired
I am Drained
I don't Sleep for days
Immersed in the Drama
Strapped to your Stage
I don't want to be Just Another lover on a Ledge

I can't give you your Life
I can't give you my Sympathy
Off your knees
Release Me
I'm Whole Again

I want to Fly
I want to Run
I want to Hide from you
Then I want to Crawl back and Lie down And Hold on to you
I don't want to be Just Another Lover on a Ledge
I don't want to be Just Another Lover on the Edge

I can't give you my Life
I can't give you the Rest of me
Off your knees
Release Me
I'm Whole Again

    General CommentVery strong song, showing a sense of confusion caused by a partner, but also the will to be strong and to overcome the (unrequited?) love. Hmmm?...

    General CommentOh wow, I love this song, I just signed on and saw it posted but I havent listened to it in a long time. I never really could get a full grasp on this song though. I kind of think it's about a relatioinship where the other person wanted something to deep, and this person wanted to get away from all the "drama."

    General CommentYeah I agree trills, except I think that it's also wanting to get away from the dependency of the other person.

    General CommentI think this song is about shooting heroin. Too bad he didn't OD so he would stop making bad music.

    General CommentVery Constructive. If You Feel The Need To Be An Ass At Least Do Us The Honour Of Messaging Instead Of Polluting These Sections With Your Crap. Thanks.

    General Comment....and it's obvious you never even listened to Tapping the Vein cuz if you ever listened to them you'd know that the singer was a female.
