Taking steps back through the words
I should’ve said to you.
They all got lost, you went away
And I feel sick and you just don’t care anymore
Hours to be with you
Minutes of me in you
And I can’t feel this happening
So tie my hands back and make me feel you coming down
I’m coming down

Chorus:
And you don’t care
Your face is on a billboard
And you’re everywhere
You don’t care much for interviews
Your gone… you’ve gone away
If you don’t like being hurt then please don’t stay
It’s hard to wave goodbye
From airplanes when I
Just don’t think that you can see
I taper off
And say it’s never worth the pain
Sometimes it is.

[Chorus]

God I wish I could make this right
I wish that there was something worth the time
For her to give to me

A phone call from LA is my present
There’s nothing left for me to give
I wish I could
And I know that I should
But you know I know I won’t

[Chorus]

If you don’t like being hurt then get away
If you don’t like being hurt then please don’t stay

    General Comment:I'm pretty sure Josh's girlfriend is a celebrity. He DID write this song though. I don't know. It's a great song, hell, this whole CD is.

    General Comment:Why do you think of a celebrity? Everything should be looked at metaphorically. When he sys "..on a billboard", that may mean that he sees her face everywhere. As for the interviews part, she doesn't like being questioned or all the questions that he has. Also Andrew does not have a girlfriend. Thanks

    General Comment:i'd have to say that i agree with I WILL END YOU on this one. i really haven't ever heard the song, nor do i know anything about this band, but when i was reading the lyrics, i definitely didn't think about a celeb, but rather, that he saw the girl everywhere... like, when you miss someone really bad, and you keep on thinking you see them out of the corner of your eye, but then, when you look, they aren't there at all.
    over all, pretty sweet lyrics, i think i'll have to download the song
