  • Lyrics
  • Have you ever been so lonely
    There is no one there to hold?
    Just pull me in or disown me
    And then climb inside
    My arms are open wide
    Have a look inside

    It is not that I am scared to learn
    Just why I'm empty inside
    Hold my hand or show some concern
    If I live or die
    My eyes are open wide
    Help me look inside

    Singing ha de de ha ha de de ah

    I hear the water drip from the faucet
    It's sweetly falling in tune
    I'm gently closing the closet and I
    Fall to the floor
    And crawl to my room
    The thought of ending it soon
    Just let me sleep in my room

    Hear me cry! Cry! Cry!
    I hear a knock at the front door
    Don't come in!
    I try to look at you
    But I can't stop shaking
    Leave me alone, just go away
    Mother I'm so scared, I'm so scared

    An empty bed and all of the sheets are gone
    They're wrapped around me and you
    All is quiet but the drop of my gun
    'Cause I, I want to belong, to someone
    But maybe life's not for everyone

    Ha de de ha ha de de ahWriter/s: JUSTIN S FURSTENFELD

  • Valleyjaye from Around Dallas, Txthis is my favorite song by blue october.. justin's book says "wrote this while w/ last wish. i started blue october bcuz of this song. i realized i could talk about the real things and no one could stop me. written on prom night."
  • Lydia from Liverpool, United KingdomI'd love to see them live but I'm pretty sure they're not going to come to England so i will just have to keep on listening. :)
  • Cody from Wasilla, AkThey came up to Alaska a few years ago, and put on the best performance I have ever seen.
  • Landon from Winchester, OhThis has to be the most emotional song I've ever heard. You can tell by the pain in Justin's voice that this must be a real life child experience, hiding a gun in his room and attempting suicide, on the watch to hide from his mother. The line that always gets me is toward the end "But maybe life's not for everyone." Blue October's music is mostly fueled by sadness and depression, but that's one of the reasons I love them! They've always got something good to listen to whenever your down.
  • Cortney from Grand Junction, CoGod this song is so...real and beautiful!its exactly how i feel everyday!i have been to 1 of their concerts and the r really good!i recommend seeing them whenever possible
  • Kathy from Houston, TxThe band members are from Houston so I used to see them play in small local clubs before they became known nationally. Justin's and Jeremy's mother would come to their shows, and would want the audience to really listen to the lyrics and amazing performance because she knows how powerful they are. The audience, especially the ones close to the stage, would watch in awe - mesmerized by their talent. Blue October is one of the best performers I have seen, and I have seen MANY bands. I always thought (and hoped, because they are so deserving) they would make it big - I'm just surprised it took so long!!! Justin's face expresses so much raw emotion when he performs. I highly recommend going to see them anytime you can!!!!! Their shows are worth every penny!!!!
  • Andrew from Evansville, InThis song is so emotional for Justin. Nick, they are amazing live. I haven't been able to catch any actual shows but I have watched the live DVD and online live videos all the time and they never disappoint. Check out Argue With A Tree CD/DVD! Its live and its my favorite album!!
  • Nick from Defiance, Ohpossibly one of the better bands out right now...really good music no matter how you cut it. I'd like to hear them live. Anyone comment on live shows?
