I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears

And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone


These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase


[Chorus:]
When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me


You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus]
When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held you hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of meeee
(3x)

    my life with my father...we had a relationship that never came close to any other with anyone else...it was him and I against the world...things, feelings, actions, etc. that only we shared with each other. nobody else knew him, understood him, loved him more than i did and still do. i cant go through a day without catching myself acting like him, thinking about him, wanting to just be able to talk to him, blaming myself for what he did, and just wishing i could talk to him one more time. he committed suicide and this song truly says how i felt and am still feeling about it. i miss him so much but sadly i wish he would just let go of me so that i could move on even for just one day without crying and wishing he was still with me. I was 23 years old when he took his own life and from that very moment to now (i am 27 now) i have had to deal with it all alone. i know he is still with me but, like the song says, i felt alone all along. I wish i would have had the chance to express my feelings to him because now i have no one. So thats why this song means so much to me...i have sent the lyrics to all those who blamed me for what he did and it has been exactly what i have tried and wanted to say to them for 4 years now, and i couldnt have imagined it being expressed more beautifully and heartfelt than these words. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for giving me the most beautiful perfect words to explain to others how ive felt through all of this.

    Yes,
    For many people this song represents loss
    They sing it with so much emotion
    That you can't help but feel the same way.
    And think back on your own life
    To see what the song represents to you
    And just to think about it
    Hurts so much
    But you can't help it
    It almost brings you to tears.

    this is a song that means losing someone you loved so much and even though they are gone you can't seem to forget about them no matter how hard you try to. I love this song, but it makes me cry everytime i hear it, because of my ex bf. This song reminds me of my ex boyfriend. He hurt me bad but i just have to let go and move on.

    My wife passedaway very suddenly about a year ago. And although we as a family are coping, it's really tough. We weren't really a "kissy - touchy" married couple, we had a loving relationship. My wife lived for her children, and that's why I loved her most of all. I listen to this when I wat to bring back the thoughts of her.
