  • Good morning day
    Sorry I'm not there
    But all my favorite friends
    Vanished, in the air
    It's hard to fly when you can't even run
    Once I had the world, but now I've got no one

    If I needed someone to control me
    If I need someone to hold me down
    I would change my direction
    And save myself before I,
    If I needed someone to control me
    If I needed someone to push me around
    I would change my direction and save myself before I, drown

    Good morning day
    Sorry you're not here
    But all those times before
    Were never this unclear
    It's hard to walk when you can't even crawl
    Once I had this world, but now I've lost it all

    If I needed someone to control me
    If I need someone to hold me down
    I would change my direction
    And save myself before I
    If I needed someone to control me
    If I needed someone to push me around
    I would change my direction and save myself before I

    Drown, rolling faster then I'm breathing
    Drown, rolling faster then I'm breathing
    Drown, rolling faster then I'm breathing

    If I needed someone to control me
    If I need someone to hold me down
    I would change my direction
    And save myself before I
    If I needed someone to control me
    If I needed someone to push me around
    I would change my direction before I, drown Writer/s: Adam Gontier, Brad Walst, Gavin Brown, Neil Sanderson

  • Roach from Nowhere, GermanyThe fact is not really right. This song is not exactly about a relationship. It is about a very bad day, when you feel like all your friends have let you down and you're all alone. But then you think: Why do I miss them? I am better off alone and I need noone to control me or hold me down.
  • Alexis from Ramsey, MnA lot of the songs off of their album explain my friendship with this one girl...
    Especially this one.
    And Over and Over.
    She's my best friend, one of my only friends, really. But somehow she's also the reason I'm so depressed. She constantly tells me I need a stronger backbone, which is true, cause I can't tell these words to her face....
  • Tyus from Selinsgrove, PaYeah, it took me awhile to get it, but I love it, but I would take Let It Die or Gone Forever over it
  • Kyle from Egmondville, CanadaThis is a bit of a hard song to understand for some people. It can take a lot of courage just to be able to stick up for yourself instead of being depressed sometimes.
  • Helen from Columbus, OhI have always loved this song... It's my favorite off of their first album. To me, it's always been about living your life for yourself, and not letting anyone get you down, and being who you are and not letting anyone change it.
  • Ashley from Moncton, CanadaThis was my favourite song off their CD Three Days Grace. I haven't listened to it in a while, but it's an awesome song.
