Lost myself in an endless goodnight
Kept the time by the patterns of the streetlight
Couldn't get it right
I could never get it right
Sadly, this is a wasted conversation
Lost on you, lost on you
This is a test of my patience
Your blue eyes are so cruel
I can't escape all the things we said
I'm taking years off my life with the weight of regret
Now there's nothing left
There's nothing left to lose

Shouldn't I feel all right?
I swear that I tried
To be alright
To sleep at night

The night fades with a breath of sunshine
I'll do my best to adjust to the morning light
I can't keep my place
Feels like I've been awake for days
Sadly, you turn away and now I'm faced
With the harsh truth, the harsh truth
My cold heart is a place where true love cannot bloom


There's static on the airwaves
I'll try to find the light through all this haze
I can't find the words that I'm trying to say
So try to forget me as I walk away

    General CommentAfter going through your xanga and seeing some of the bands you listen to, its pretty safe to say you've got a shitty taste in music so do everyone a favor and shut the fuck up, k?

    "kinda liked it" it shows..

    The song speaks for itself, it's really relatable which is the best part of it.

    General CommentWell, from prior knowledge of the songs before this:

    If you haven't known, The City Sleeps in Flames starts in tribute to 9-11.

    All the songs afterward follow as a storyline to the tradgedy.

    This song is when the incident is over, to prove: "I'll try to find the light through all this haze"

    So this is the point where everything is over with, relationships, the incident, trials and hardships.

    He begins anew by walking away.

    General CommentI think this is about an old relationship with a girl.
    I feel like it's about a relationship that's gone sour.. He loved her so much and now he's filled with regret.

    I feel like the girl walked away and didn't want anything to do with him anymore and now he's trying to pick up the pieces of a life and love he once had and moved on.

    I sure know what that feels like.

    General CommentThis means a lot to me. lol
    I'm in LOVE, with this boy, and it's like he's trying to see how far I'll go for him! D:
    "This is a test on my patience, your blue eyes are so cruel."
    he has blue eyes.
    the rest of the song works with my situation too. :[

    General Commentgreat song... anyway i think the lyrics are wrong:

    My cold heart is a place
    Where true love cannot bloom ---not lose

    bomb band-- i love the synths

    General CommentNIKKIE, Don't tell me what to do. He used "angsty" words to, so don't single me out. And you're right, I should have been more respectful, but I don't show respect to people who don't show respect at all.

    At least I gave my take on the meaning instead of just insulting a band and completely labeling by the one song I heard.

    And I agree with your take on the meaning.

    General CommentI hear bloom.

    My cold heart is a place
    Where true love cannot lose[BLOOM]
    Cos I really don't see 'lose' making sense to the song. It's obviously about a break up that he's trying to get through, but he can't let go. Mab ethe whole thing was ruined because of his attitude, or just having a 'cold heart' that wouldn't let him love her. Those 2 lines sum it up for me, out of that whole song.

    General CommentI totally back up autumns_gone on that. That kid did say some stuff that maybe some of us would take offensively.

    But anyway, this is supposed to be about the songs meaning, my bad.

    I like it, I can relate. I think it's about looking back on a relationship and feeling the regret of ever being in it. It hurts like hell and you know you should let go and so should they. It's better for both.
