What am I to say?
I'm all wrapped up in apathy
And I don't want to stay this way
There's nothing left to do
Now that I am onto you
All I want to know is the truth

And I don't want to go
But I feel like I should
'Cause' I'm falling apart
And I die, and die, and die

How could you be the better part of me
When we're only half of what we used to be?
Today, could you see, this isn't what we need
And I'm leaving all the pieces how they fell
So goodbye, farewell

What am I to say?
I still remember everyday
And memories don't fade away
And it all falls apart
In the shadows of the past
It can seem to be so hard but it's time the feelings pass

How could you be the better part of me
When we're only half of what we used to be?
Today, could you see, this isn't what we need
And I'm leaving all the pieces how they fell
So goodbye, farewell

And pull your triggers now what you waitin' for
I stand accused myself, sometimes I'm wrong, God help me
And hear beneath my lie, what am I praying for?
I don't believe in hell but I just might be there tonight

How could you be the better part of me
When we're only half of what we used to be?
Today, could you see, this isn't what we need
And I'm leaving all the pieces how they fell
So goodbye, farewell
Goodbye, farewell

    General Commenthalf hour of power is pretty good, i have all 4 cds, but i dont no which one is my favorite.. cuz we have half hour of pwer where they r first starting out, all killer no filler, when they had alot of fun, does this look infected when they got more into their song meanings, and chuck where their lyrics r like amazing, so i guess i like to listen to half hour of power, and all killer no filler if im like in a fun mood, but does this look infected and chuck if im in a serious mood

    General Commentto me this song is about how somebody is going through a really tough time and there is this one person who tries to help him out but he's just making it worse because he's insensitive and the one guy can tell that this person who is trying to help him really doesnt understand or give a shit

    General CommentFrom analyzing the lyrics, you can tell it's written from the viewpoint of a pedophile lifestyle. Kind of gross if you ask me, but whatever. I'm noticing a trend in Sum 41 songs, where not only all the lyrics suck, but they are mostly about homosexual insecurity and pedophile stories. Weird, huh.
