about

This song is about a friend who didn't know she more than a friend.

lyrics

while we walk along the sidewalks down the pavement of our lives
there's an anguish taking over deep inside me sharp as knives
and I'm sure you're unaware you'd take my hand or let me go
you're dangling you're finger tips just out of reach as cold as snow
and your enemies are jealous of your lack of masquerade
they don't know how to gain mastery of all your subtle ways
you shine in the hearts of many but you burn so bright in mine
so I'm thinking of a way to put myself inside your mind

you're just a break in the war
you're just a name to ease the pain
of waking up every day all alone
you're skin and bones but you're like home
and I'm falling all over myself just to get you say you feel the same

your posture's got me hypnotized the stance of confidence
your shining hair your emerald eyes these things about you don't make sense
and I wish that you had kept your heart and not sold it away
cause to tell the truth I swear to you I'd fight for it every day
but as it stands I know that you've got eyes for someone else
and it pains me to acknowledge this to play the cards you dealt
it's so hard to stand so idle while you stand in front of me
in your blissful blinding ignorance a friend is all you see

you're just a break in the war
you're just a name to ease the pain
of waking up every day all alone
you're skin and bones but you're like home
and I'm falling all over myself just to get you say you feel the same
you're just a break in the war
you're just a name to ease the pain
of waking up every day all alone
you're skin and bones but you're like home
and I'm falling all over myself just to get you say you feel the same
