lost in a haunting thought
spinning me around once more
i wake just to feel the way
as the daylight comes around i turn
with my eyes on the back door


your face is light and cocaine white
one message beating through
smoke's filled the air and i'm struggling to breathe
let them be calm so i finally can sleep everything you intended to say
don't go back on your words
you always said you'd tell me first


verse after endless verse
i can't escape the echoed words
i long to find a cure for the feeling i find in these chords
i smile as it burns


your face is light and cocaine white
one message beating through


i've been erased from the picture
excuse, oh no anything goes
excuses, you know it doesn't work
excuse, oh no anything goes
excuses don't work
excuse me this will calls out desperate
excuse me this will calls out desperate

smoke's filled the air and i'm struggling to breathe
let them be calm so i finally can sleep everything you intended to say
don't go back on your words
you always said you'd tell me first
smoke's filled the air and i'm struggling to breathe
let them be calm so i finally can sleep

    Song MeaningThis song I think talks about how one person was left behind and is left wondering what will happen and if their coming back. Their mourning and remembering memories. He finds it hard to let go because of the fact that the other person had said they wouldnt let go so easily but broke their promise. He wants the memory to br gone from him becuase it hurts him everytime he thinks about it.
