All I want is to let this go
Cause this heavy heart has been pulling me down for too long
All I want is to hear your voice
But no matter how I tell it to myself it still feels wrong

And the city that I once called my own is the last place I should be
Cause everything in this town reminds me you're better off without me
And if I knew what I was running from, I'd be gone in a matter of weeks
Cause a place like this is enough to drive me crazy

Whoa, whoa...

All I want is to rest my bones
I've been running from state to state to state just so I'd leave you alone
All I want is to have a home
But I can't keep my heart where you are so I'll stay on the road

I'm waking up now in this empty house
And I'm doing my best to keep my comments down to a minimum
But it's just so hard to bite my tongue
I'm waking up now and it's just so loud
Cause every one here loves somebody else
And somehow, I always seem to get left out

And the city that I once called my own is the last place I should be
Cause everything in this town reminds me you're better off without me
And if I knew what I was running from, I'd be gone in a matter of weeks
Cause a place like this is enough to drive me crazy

I'm waking up now in this empty house
(And the city that I once called my own)
And I'm doing my best to keep my comments down to a minimum
(Is the last place that I should be)
But it's just so hard to bite my tongue
(Cause everything in this town reminds me you're better off without me)
I'm waking up now and it's just so loud
(And if I knew what I was running from)
Cause every one here loves somebody else
(I'd be gone in a matter of weeks)
And somehow, I always seem to get left out
(Cause a place like this is enough to drive me crazy)

I'm waking up now in this empty house
And I'm doing my best to keep my comments down to a minimum
But it's just so hard to bite my tongue
I'm waking up now and it's just so loud
Cause every one here loves somebody else
And somehow, I always seem to get left out

    My OpinionThis song really hits me hard. It's so beautiful and powerful to begin with, but it is a situation that a lot can relate to - (if my interpretation is correct?) trying to forget someone. the pain is inevitable in his voice - especially showing at the "i'm waking up now" verse. it's one of those songs where you just close your eyes and let yourself be engulfed by the sound. headphones recommended.
