lyrics

Problems develop on these dreary weekends when I spend them all alone.
But I have people in my life who help me cope with the feeling of not being home.

I found out who meant the most to me after those forlorn teenage years
This is the time of my life
People come and go on the journey you've embarked on to find out who you really are
I think I finally found my best friends

All of my life I thought I was an outcast
My personality and mannerisms contrast
With the masses but we're wired different ways
Then fate comes along and connects me with the ones I can relate

I found out who meant the most to me after those forlorn teenage years
This is the time of my life
People come and go on the journey you've embarked on to find out who you really are
I think I finally found my best friends

It took me far too long to conquer these demons
I wish you knew how hard it really is for me
To find trustworthy friends whose lives I will defend
This turned out to be my brightest dream

My mind becomes a darker place when all the wires get tangled up
When you are far away
The disconnect occurred as our friendship developed
Then you drove on the highway
When you make your return or when I make my arrival
I swear I'll be okay






Fall Came

I've gone insane all thanks to you.
What is this hell you had to put me through.
You never took the action to speak to me.
(I've learned) that actions speak louder than words,
Regardless of what you have heard.
Above all things assigned to do,
I always tried to talk to you.
But all attempts have failed and your ship has set its sails.

We used to hang out in the summer,
Then fall came and shattered all our plans like shards of glass
Blown away by the winter.
We spent those nights driving through city roads
Singing to songs that we all love and know.
I wish my whole life could have stayed this way.

But now friendships are one-sided.
I was once one to confide in.
This is the fire that you ignited.
And every single day, I always try to find a change.

I've gone insane all thanks to you.
What is this hell you had to put me through.
You never took the action to speak to me.
(I've learned) that actions speak louder than words,
Regardless of what you have heard.
Above all things assigned to do,
I always tried to talk to you.
But all attempts have failed and your ship has set its sails.

One month later, miscommunications brought up these unnecessary situations.
This is the seed you planted in my head.
It sprouted feeding off my depression.
My will to live resorted to regression.
Funny how destruction is a form of creation.
This broken mind has embodied aggression.

I have no need for your empty life to fill the void in me.
'Cause now I've found a place in my head where I'm finally free.
All attempts have failed, and your ship has set its sails.

I've gone insane all thanks to you.
What is this hell you had to put me through.
You never took the action to speak to me.
(I've learned) that actions speak louder than words,
Regardless of what you have heard.
Above all things assigned to do,
I always tried to talk to you.
But all attempts have failed and your ship has set its sails.
