In seventy-five,
I stood there and cried.
A walk to the edge...
A song is written to tell your story.
A walk to the edge...
Its how I remember things,
It's how I missed it.
And how do I move on when the time has stopped?
For too long, I've been thinking its time to move on...
and I'm sinking - again I can kiss
and I'm crawling from the abyss...
I've been saving up for this...
I'm still in love.
This disk will store my-
programmed treasures.
Only thoughts now,
I can't erase my-
programmed treasures.
It's how I remember things,
it's how I lost it.
And how will I get there now that your gone?
I've been thinking its time to move on...
and I'm sinking - again I can kiss
and I'm crawling from the abyss...
I've been saving up for this...

    General Commentit took me a really long time to think about this song, and what it means to me. I think its about getting over pain. I think its about trying to cope and just constantly drowning in the past, and trying to live through it. But "programmed treasures" arent always precious...thats why we want to erase them... but i cant erase them, its how i remember things, "thats how i lost it"...

    General CommentJolie's voice is so hypnotic... this song makes me want to break down everytime I hear it... It just reminds me of those times when I broke up with g/f's that I was so madly in love with and how hard it was to move on but I knew I had to...

    General Commentjolie and the gang have made a cult classic with this song...i met them while they were on tour with my friend's band Brandtson...they are genuine people who, like all of us, have put up with heartbreak at one point or another, this song is an ode to heartbreak...i don't know what else to say, i'm speechless!!
