Zero

Album: Smile, It's the End of the World (2006)
  • Your Life dreams are shattered, you're gone away
    We've cried here for hours, and the hours turn to days
    We know you regret this, leaving us here,
    With portraits and memories that we've held so dear

    When I hear your name, it's not the same
    No matter what they say, I'm not okay

    And we started at zero, and went different ways
    Now we're all out here wasting away
    And if we started at zero, then how did things change?
    It seems like just yesterday we were the same

    It's been 3 months since he left us
    So far nothing's been the same
    And my question without answer is:
    Am I the one to blame?

    He was such a good description of a favored future man
    He spoke well of other people, and they said the same for him

    When I hear your name, it's not the same
    No matter what they say, I'm not okay

    And we started at zero, and went different ways
    Now we're all out here wasting away
    And if we started at zero, then how did things change?
    It seems like just yesterday we were the same
    We were the same

    They say they're sorry, but what are they sorry for?
    How can they possibly know what I'm going through?
    I feel like no one's ever had to deal with this pain that I'm dealing with right now
    Just 6 months ago everything was fine, or so it seemed
    What turn of event caused him to go downhill?
    His parents are devastated
    His girlfriend's depressed
    What was he thinking!?

    And we started at zero
    And went different ways
    Now we're all out here wasting away
    Wasting away
    Wasting away
    Wasting away

    And we started at zero
    And went different ways
    Now we're all out here wasting away
    And if we started at zero
    Then how did things change?
    It seems like just yesterday we were the same
    We were the same
    We were the same
    We were the same Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
