When I said good morning, I was lying
I was truly thinking of, how I might quit waking up
He pointed out how selfish, It would be to kill myself

So I keep waking up...

It feels so much like falling
Dying while I wait to die
The fear of something or nothing,
Lonely, empty, lie

I don't want to be a liar,
I don't want to be selfish anymore
I want so much to change,
Learning your love everyday...
There's still so much to know

You grip my wrists, I let go

It feels so much like falling
Seperated from the fear
Aware of a destination far away from here

It feels so much like falling
Seperated from the fear
Aware of a destination far away from here

Far away from here...

    This does mean about God showing her that killing yourself is selfish. This a christian band to reach out to others about the truth. I have been in the situation before, God reached out to me in a dream. He sent his angle to speak to me. Telling me I am still loved and everything will be alright trust in God.

    Yep, it's about wanting to kill herself, then some guy (God, maybe?) tells her it would be selfish to kill herself, so she takes him seriously and keeps living day by day, even though it feels like life is spiraling downward.
    I think this song would be great for New Moon.. it fits in with the book.

    pretty obvious. but it's about a girl
    that wants to kill herself, but someone
    convinces her not to. and then it's
    pretty much the healing process
    of it all.
