  • Will you think that you're all alone
    When no one's there to hold your hand?
    When all you know seems so far away
    And everything is temporary, rest your head
    I'm permanent
    I'm permanent

    Is this the moment where I look you in the eye?
    Forgive my broken promise that you'll never see me cry
    And everything, it will surely change even if I tell you I won't go away today
    Will you think that you're all alone
    When no one's there to hold your hand?
    And all you know seems so far away and everything is temporary
    Rest your head
    I'm permanent

    I know he's living in hell every single day
    And so I ask, oh God is there some way for me to take his place
    And when they say it's all touch and go
    I wish I could make it go away
    But still you say
    Will you think that you're all alone
    When no one's there to hold your hand?
    When all you know seems so far away
    And everything is temporary,
    Rest your head
    I'm permanent

    I'm permanent

    Is the moment where I look you in the eye?
    Forgive my broken promise that you'll never see me cry. Writer/s: MICHAEL MAIDA, CHANTAL KREVIAZUK, DAVID COOK

  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThis song is even sadder now that David's bro has passed away. David's voice on this track is earth-shattering.
  • Dalina from New York, NyI love this song. The first time I listened to it, I thought it was about a girl who was being abused by a guy or something along those lines. I love how it can virtually mean anything this song. Saddest song I have my ipod other then maybe Yesterday.
