I wonder where you are.
Please don't come around tonight
'Cause I can't stand to see you and I don't want to fight.
Gimme one more drink and I swear I think
I'll be ready to make the same mistakes again with you.

I finally figured out that you're not coming back
And I'm not going anywhere.
You were the one with all the faith
How did you let it slip away?
That's right, I'm blaming this all on you
And the little things you didn't do.
We both knew that you were stronger,
Could have fought a little longer.
You didn't hold it tight enough.
You lost your grip and I slipped right through your fingers.

No more sleepless nights alone.
This bed is better without you.
No more waitin' up for calls.
I've got nothin' left to say to you.

Tell me again about those better days.
This silence hurts me more than anything you could say.
Broken knuckles, broken heart.
I fell in love then fell apart.
You tried to run, I tried to hide,
Still we managed to collide.
Fell so hard, matching scars.
Held you close, felt so far.
Hearts beating out of time.
You're screaming with no reason and no rhyme.

So I will save this last breath
For words that I won't scream.
I don't feel like dying,
But you're killing me.

Just when the wounds start healing
You're there to break me open.
Watch the blood spill.
I'm getting used to this.
I'll clean it in the morning.

I wonder where you are.
Please don't come around tonight
'Cause I can't stand to see you
And I don't want to fight.
Gimme one more drink and I swear
I think I'll be ready to make the same mistakes
Again without you.

    General CommentThis is such a good song, and I agree...theres hardly any comments and they are sucha great band. I have the ONLY comment on I'll Cry Tomorrow, which is my favourite song by Cauterize. I also like the way he switched the "with" and "without" in the first and last stanzas. "Just when the wounds start healing you're there to break me open.
    Watch the blood spill.
    I'm getting used to this.
    I'll clean it in the morning." really hits home for me. I think of it as, just when you think shits gettin better something fucks it all up again, its like a neverending circle of issues. lol.
