Fighting to keep this alive
Constantly fighting to keep myself going
Dear friend, I haven't the slightest desire
To help keep you going

Keep to myself all the time
(Kid it's better that way)
Try to avoid all the lines
(But I can't help you stay)
And the things that they say
Fighting to keep this alive
Constantly fighting to keep myself going

Please don't run from your problems
You can't keep running
There's no place to go

As you escape from your life
This house becomes hollow and
All we can do is just wait
Sit here and wait for this train to arrive
I've got my bags packed and I've said my goodbyes
Constantly giving into
These moments that just bring me down
Just bring me close enough to stay around
To stay around

Keeping to yourself is no way to stay alive
You can't fight what's coming
And all that you can do is sit back and realize we'll be there
Cuz you keep waiting for someone to save you
Embrace you and take you away
Far away
Take you so far from this place

Running away, so far away
Running away, so far away
I can't stay, I can't stay with you here
I can't stay, I can't stay with you here

As you escape from your life
This house becomes hollow and
All we can do is just wait
Sit here and wait for this train to arrive
I've got my bags packed and I've said my goodbyes
Constantly giving into
These moments that just bring me down
Just bring me close enough to stay around
To stay around

But I won't stay around

    General Commentim only really getting into TSA and i already love them
    anything i play now is them
    this is my favourite

    i think its about a boy and girl that are fighting and he's had enough of it,
    hence the line -
    Dear friend, I haven't the slightest desire
    To help keep you going-
    cause he also has his fair share of stuff to deal with
    so he decides to move away,
    and just as the plans are finalised, he wants her to open up to him.
    he's telling her that she cant keep on going like this. just keeping everything inside, that she needs to let it out, she needs to cry. cause otherwise shes barly human

    then the end of the song is about him leaving.
    -I've got my bags packed and I've said my goodbyes
    Constantly giving into
    These moments that just bring me down-
    although he's sad about leaving, he hopes this will help her


    its a beautiful song and very well played and sung.
    i love them.
