Tonight I lack the strength to even move
When you walked, now watch me die
But I know this is harder for you
For love has let you down

Yeah c'mon
I am not alone

And the road ahead is lined with broken dreams
So walk, yeah walk on by
And I failed to give you everything you need
For the fears, behind your eyes

When I can't feel you
I'm not alright, I'm not alright
When I can't feel you
I'm not alright, I'm not alright, I'm not alright
When I can't feel you

As Jesus as you throw me on the rocks
For love I left your side
'Cause I believed in love and beauty's wiles
Where Heaven shone from your eyes

Chained to your tree
I wanted you to say
I wanted you to say
I wanted to believe
Chained to your tree
I wanted you to say
I wanted you to say

Tell me that it wasn't all for naught
And it's such a waste now, it's such a waste now c'mon
'Cause I know your scared but baby don't you hide
And it's such a waste
You'll stand alone now, you'll make it somehow

    General Commentit SO DOES give u goosebumps!

    you can just feel it eh? itz like.. hez been goin thru all this, giving up everything. and now hez extremely disapointed, "itz such a waste now.."

    i love it cause it one of the few songs, that describes this sortta mood without feeling suicidal! rather optimistic i'd say..We’ll stand alone now, we’ll make it somehow"

    the music is SOOOO like coldplay!! luv it!

    General Commenti completely agree with you, leeann87, pilate definitely sounds a lot like radiohead on some of their songs, and i can hear some bono in his voice as well.. coldplay, not so much... maybe the music a little bit, but not the vocals.
    but anyway, i adore this song, especially the last bit of it.. so much emotion

    General CommentThis song is definitely all about how he sings it, you can hear the emotion of the lyrics in his voice.
    I dont know about the comparisons though, melodically I can see some similarities with Colplay, but it's still quite distinct. Definitely my favourite song of the album
