"Away From Me" as written by and Wesley Reid Scantlin....
Yeah

Lies

Look at me now just sitting here by myself
And I think you found someone else
Now I'm gonna have to find a way to put the bottle down
And why can't you see that I'm drowning in a pool of misery?

I'm always afraid that you're gone
Away from me
I'm always afraid that you're lost in
Somebody
I'm always afraid that you're gone
Away from me
I'm always afraid that you're lost

So here I am I want to be my myself
And I think you're fucking someone else
Now I'm gonna have to find a way to take the knife out of my back
And how could you leave me
Stranded in a closet full of puddles?

I'm always afraid that you're gone
Away from me
I'm always afraid that you're lost in
Somebody
I'm always afraid that you're gone
Away from me
I'm always afraid that you're lost

Maybe you could let me stay
Maybe just for one more day
You could help me stay the same
Maybe things won't ever change
Maybe we could taste the rain
You could push me out the way
Now I sit here by myself
Think about somebody else
How could you let them take you away from me?
(There's somebody else, there's somebody else)

I'm always afraid that you're gone
Away from me
I'm always afraid that you're lost in
Somebody
I'm always afraid that you're gone
Away from me
I'm always afraid that you're

I'm always afraid
I'm always afraid
I'm always afraid
I'm always afraid
I'm always afraid
I'm always afraid
I'm always afraid
Away from me

    General CommentThis reminds me of my boyfriend, but I think I am paranoid, but it reminds me of how I feel.
    It's kinda a long distance relationship, so I am always afraid that he has found someone else and just won't tell me... I dunno... =(

    General Comment"A way to put the bottle down
    And why can’t you see
    That I’m drowning in a pool of misery"
    Wes is drinking away his problems.

    "I’m always afraid
    That you’re lost in somebody "
    He's afraid his girl fell in love with someone else.

    The one thing that I'm unsure about is
    "How could you let them take you away from me " because this is saying that there is more than one person who's luring her away from Wes.

    General CommentThis is one song that any pissed teenager might play to relieve his anger...A guy my age might go for something for intellegent and artsy. For being literalists, these guys can cut to the heart of the matter. This is not my favorite song by them, but its better than emo shit.

    General CommentHis woman dumped him, and now he's resorting to drinking and/or drugs to ease his pain. He thought he had something good going until the dumb bitch cheated on him. He really needed her and now he doesnt know what to do with himself. I know this feeling well.

    General CommentI think its about a man being paranoid about this girl he loves, but one day what he was dreeding actually comes true and actually not mad because he saw it coming.
