What a mess our lives turned out to be
It was at its best when you and I were only 3
We can start with all the things that turn us out
And we can go right down the list and throw them out

Can we start over?
It's over

Here you are and there's where you wanna be
But don't think you don't have company
Think of all the lonely people in the world
And if it's God who made us why we so damn cruel

We can never lie
And you can never steal the time
And we can only watch them die
And we can never find out why

    General CommentI love this song. The lyrics are great. I heard "The Remedy" and I liked it, so I thought i'd try another one of their songs, and I liked it even more. This song is really good.

    General CommentI love this song. I agree with you guys about starting over. There are those times where I wish I could take things back and start over, and do more of something to stop another thing. Like those times where I lost friends from either suicide or just because our friendship grew apart. I dedicate this song to those friends I've lost with Love and Respect.

    General Commentif u were to watch the entire season of clone high, abandoned pools just so conveniently happen to be the band playing at the prom in the ast episode, and they play this song just as Abe realises he's in love with Joan and watnot (i'm not revealing the episode), but this whole song could be a message from Abe to Joan. oldversion.com ... get kazaa lite k++ and download the entire season of clone high (a few abandoned pools songs in there), well worth it too, not sure y it was cancelled..

    General Commenti love clone high!!!!
    did it not continue after that, or was there another season? cause the last i saw was that prom episode (after i downloaded the first ..season..) .. so is that the end???? *tear*

    Yeah, this song seems pretty straightforward..
    feeling nostalgic about being young and having no worries!

    "We can never lie
    And you can never steal the time
    And we can only watch them die
    And we can never find out why"

    And dealing with the harsh realities!!
    You can't turn back time...and you have to deal with death in your life!
