Days left before this is over and done with.
The sheets keep whispering "will you make it through this day?"
I'll practice making scenarios that aren't really there.
The corner hasn't helped in so long it speeds everything up now.
Back and forth, walking every piece of baggage off of me.
Hope when it hits they ground they turn to ash.
Sing the words even though they don't make sense at all.
I believe letters keep me warm.
I believe letters keep me company.
Tonight and forever in this room with mood lighting.
Even though it doesn't make sense.

    General Commentthis is a great song...i especially like the title. it seems that it is about getting down on yourself, feeling so hopeless and worn down and not being able to go on...and it is possibly due to being on the road so often?(i believe letters keep me warm; i believe letters keep my company)...i think that maybe this song is saying that he is starting to feel the pressures of his fame

    General Commentthis song is all about reflection. when he tries to look back all he sees is brick wall. the corner doesnt help because everything is too fast. nothing makes sense at all anymore. great song, great album!!

    General CommentFirst two lines are missing:

    Covered from head to toe in lighting,
    it's constantly changing when I'm around.

    This song is awesome. At first I didn't like the intro, but it really grew on me. I don't see how people don't like You Come Before You. The CD is really amazing.

    General Commenti think this song is about traveling alot (with hte band) often times in cheap hotels the view out the window will be another building...also he is missing everybody (creating scenarios that aren't there)
