  • Lyrics
  • I don't know who to trust your surprise
    (Everyone feels so far away from me)
    Happy thoughts sift through dust and the lies
    (Trying not to break but I'm so tired of this deceit)

    (Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet
    (All I ever think about is this)
    (All the tiring time between)
    (And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me)

    Take everything from the inside and throw it all away
    'cause I swear for the last time I won't trust myself with you

    Tension is building inside steadily
    (Everyone feels so far away from me)
    Happy thoughts forcing their way out of me
    (Trying not to break but I'm so tired of this deceit)
    (Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet)
    (All I ever think about is this)
    (All the tiring time between)
    (And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me)

    Take everything from the inside and throw it all away
    'Cause I swear for the last time I won't trust myself with you

    I won't waste myself on you
    You
    You
    Waste myself on you
    You
    You

    I'll take everything from the inside and throw it all away
    'Cause I swear for the last time I won't trust myself with you

    Everything from the inside and just throw it all away
    'Cause I swear for the last time I won't trust myself with you
    You

  • Shadow from Depression, VaThis song is different from most songs on "Meteora", Chester's vocals are less rough and more pure and pretty, I love this song :D
  • Carmela from Las Piñas City, PhilippinesAfter reading this, i just realized that chester does have bad luck following him around.... nah, this isn't a joking matter. i don't want to know what would happent to lp if he would be unable to sing anymore because of whatever condition he is in
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjSimply about misplaced trust, I think. Mike plays piano on live versions of the song.
