Threw you the obvious and you flew with it on your back
A name in your recollection
Down among a million same

Difficult not to feel a little bit disappointed and passed over
When I've looked right through to see you naked but oblivious
And you don't see me

But I threw you the obvious just to see if there's more behind the eyes of a
Fallen angel
Eyes of a tragedy

Here I am expecting just a little bit a little too much from the wounded
But I see
See through it all
See through
See you

Cause I threw you the obvious
To see what occurs behind
The eyes of a fallen angel
Eyes of a tragedy

Oh well
Oh well
Apparently I'm nothing
Apparently nothing at all

You don't
You don't
You don't
See me
You don't
You don't
You don't see me
You don't
You don't see me
You don't see me at all

    It sounds like he has fallen for someone who has givin up on themself. Hence the (Here I am expecting just a little bit a little too much from the wounded) people who have self hatred tend to live in a different world than the rest of us they can't love you because your not really there. But that's the powerful thing about songs we use them as our crutch therefor they become the meaning of what we need at the moment.

    To me this song about someone who has given their all in relationships of the past and had been hurt in all of them that when finally someone she meets is willing to give everything of himself to make her happy as well she cannot see it because she has locked her self up so as not to get hurt again. He is saying that he knows and understands what she has been through and he wishes to love her and make her happy but she just brushes him to a side as in a memory. Sometimes we tend to see further than what is expected. Sometimes we search and we search for someone when the person we are looking for is right in front of us.

    I admit this is an excellent song, but your comments disturb me. My personality, ashamed, past lover, my x who broke me.?

    I think the song is meant to inspire, not to discourage and these comments are discouraging. The hero of the song is beginning to acknowledge the emptiness in those around him. I hear his pain, but more importantly I hear his pity. He is not the oblivious. He is not the fallen. He is not the wounded. He is not the tragedy. And neither are you.

    I agree with jordan. I feel this song kinda illustrates my personallity. Wheather its because I'm ashamed of who I am or if I'm scared of what someone might think of me if I let them to close to me. I've never been able to have the love I wanted because I didn't have what it took to make that person see me for thway I truely felt.

    Hummm. This song could have a million reasons and I'm sure everyone will agree that it means something different to them. But to me I just think about how people don't see the real person that I am or that I don't let them see because relationships are so short lived. I'm sick of people only seeing whats on the outside instead of what is on the inside. Also of my x who completly broke me.
