  • She fills my bed with gasoline
    You think I wouldn't notice
    Her mind's made up
    Her love is gone
    I think someone's trying to show us a sign
    That even if we thought it would last
    The moment would pass
    My bones will break and my heart would give

    And I remember the day when you left for Santa Monica
    You left me to remain with all your excuses for everything
    And I remember the time when you left for Santa Monica
    And I remember the day you told me it's over

    It hurts to breathe
    Well every time that you're not next to me
    Her mind's made up
    The girl is gone
    And now I'm forced to see
    I think I'm on my way
    Oh, it hurts to live today
    Oh and she says "Don't you wish you were dead like me?"

    And I remember the day when you left for Santa Monica
    You left me to remain with all your excuses for everything
    And I remember the time when you left for Santa Monica
    And I remember the day you told me it's over

    I wanted more than this
    I needed more than this
    I could use of more than this
    But it just won't stop
    It just won't go away

    I needed more than this
    I wanted more than this
    I asked for more than this
    But it just won't stop
    It just won't go away

    And I remember the day when you left for Santa Monica
    You left me to remain with all your excuses for everything
    And I remember the time when you left it all behind
    And I remember the day you told me it's over

    And I remember the day when you left for Santa Monica
    You left me to remain with all your excuses for everything
    And I remember the time when you left for Santa Monica
    Yeah, I remember the day you told me it's over Writer/s: David J Brenner, Dean Henning Back, Tyler Patrick Connolly

  • Alex from Taranto, Italywow,if notice There's a hinted/hidden reference to Santa Monica's Blv in Hollywood,a street full of prostitues and drug traffic.
    maybe he is hinting that the girlfriend leave him to become a protitute...who knows!
  • Logan from Troy, MtI did play Indigo Prophecy, and everything was almost perfect. The soundtrack was fantastic, the story was almost near perfect, and the gameplay was pretty awesome. I wished it was a bit more coherent in some parts, but it was almost sitting in the greatness part of the Greatest games I ever played list.

    And the song was completely awesome. The last time I heard Credit music that great with a video game was Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
  • Garoud from Arica, Chilesorry to post twice, but I really really listened to this song...and by some reason I think the man in the song killed his girlfriend...anyone else thinks that way?
  • Garoud from Arica, Chileabsolutely a good song...but if you havent seen it on the game can go easily dismissed...too bad, Indigo prophecy has very good themes
  • Corey from Cheney, WaThis song is absolutely amazing... Nothing less... I can't stop listening to it
