INTRO

Tune and whistle: doo do do doo do do do do doo do do do do doo. (2x)

Been through a long road of heartache and pain
Try to heal up the wounds
But this beatin can't be contained no
We still talk but it's not the same. (not the same, it's not the same)
Reminisce so much on the past
Can't figure out why this couldnt last, no

(PRE_CHORUS):
No more late night talks or rendezvous, (ooo-oo-ooo)
It's like an unbearable pain when I don't see you, (you-oo-ooo) no...
So damn bad for me, as the only one you cling to
And right now... I don't know what to do.

Well ohh well

(CHORUS):
You're waiting for the rain to fall, and ya...
Needed help but you wouldn't call, and ya...
Never really been in love before, and never
Realized what your heart was for, so ya...
Gave yourself to folks who just don't care, and yea...
Can find those people everywhere, but ah...
Hold my breathe till' you tear down a wall...
It's like I'm waiting for the rain to fall

Me without you just feels insane, (cant do without ya)
I keep pushing for what it was before
Before you hopped up and changed. noo...
Memories just floods my brain, (kept thinking bout ya)
How we used to chill and laugh
I thought we were on a spiritual path.

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

Instrumental with tune and whistle

    Thats you cant just go around expecting what you want instead you have to live and respect other for who they are because they might be the people who really car for you. In this story is how a man is or was with a girl who now no longer loves him and is just waiting to see what happens hence ? Tearing down the walls' and he doesnt know what to do about it but there is nothing he can do about it... The guy still loves the girl but its not the same way around. All he can do is reminisce and have past memories to remind him. For the girl its a game to see when her heart gets broken by people who dont treat her right. All the guys does is go insane and trys to help the impossible but never gives up. He wants the old ways of her back :(

    I'm james, 16...

    It's about how much love hurts. Everyone who's loving someone, is one day going to get hurt. It's about how you love someone so much, and your not loved back in that way. And the thing that hurts most is that you don't even know what you did wrong. Maybe you didn't do anything wrong, the one you loved did. It kind of hurts when you find out that you just were a second choice all the time. Because it was someone else there, you were the one which someones boyfriend was cheating with. You are friendzoneed. And that's the worst thing of it all. You can't even describe with words how much something like stuffs in this song hurts.
    And the weirdest thing is, you are still capable of doing really anything for him/her. Because even if he stops loving me, it isn't going to change anything about my feelings for him. Somewhere back in my head that little fire of hope keeps burning.
    "Maybe some day he will come back to me" You can't keep going and pretending like nothing has happened, cause what happened, and you can't just do something un-done. Even if everything sucks right now, it will be better in time.

    Finding love isnt easy... People be looking for love in the wrong places ... Under and behind walls... They are so blind that love is in front of you
