I can't believe that so much time was spent on my own
Just tryin' to figure it out all alone
Don't show emotion, let this go

I can pretend that everything is still okay
Until you rightfully say what you said
The night you left me here for dead

Why do you cry when you're falling asleep?
And girl, how can you love without you ever losing it all
Don't put your faith in this, when you won't believe it

Where did you go?
How will you find yourself, when your hand to hold is letting go?
Where did you go?
How will you tell yourself, you're losing hope, losing hope?

Is it just me or has the time we spent come undone
I know forever is not what you want
I'll pack my bags and brush it off, brush it off

Why do you cry when you're falling asleep?
And girl, how can you love without ever losing it all
Don't put your faith in this, when you won't believe it

Where did you go?
How will you find yourself, when your hand to hold is letting go?
Where did you go?
How will you tell yourself, you're losing hope?

Tell me that you're alright
Yeah, like I really care
Why do we fight sometimes
Just like we always do
Try and make up your mind
I'll make it up for you
Try and make up your mind
Your, mind, your mind

Where did you go?
How will you find yourself, when your hand to hold is letting go?
Where did you go?
How will you tell yourself, you're losing hope, you're losing hope?
[2x]

    It's about a guy where girl he loves doesn't feel the same way back and he wants her back more than anything in the world even though she "left him for dead" or in other words broke up with him or left him and he's trying his best to move on but he just can't he still loves her even though everything that she did to him.

    My boyfriend is just horrible to me and would rather be with his ex that me and I know we are falling apart and I feel like the song is questioning why I am still trying even though I know he is letting go on us. I cry every time.

    It's describing that feeling when the person you care for most leaves you, says they're done. But you know the two of you mean so much to eachother and you're basically just confused as to why everything is falling apart. It's like they changed drastically and you don't know where to go from here, yet you have to put on a strong face for everyone. It's like you hear what they say but you honestly know they can't mean this. You eventually can't handle it anymore, becoming frustrated with them and it's just not a happy ending from there. Trust me.. I love this song though, thanks mayday!

    It reminds me of a special guy , who i deeply hold dear to my heart. He loves this girl but she would ignore him and go back to him after two weeks without no word acting like normal. They broke up and he still earns for her love, but she ignores him and acts like she doesn't care. This song is his favorite

    I think the meaning of this song is how he truly loved this girl but she left him "for dead. " and he figures that the only way she could leave him so easily is because she never really loved him like he thought. He doesn't know why she falls asleep asleep crying because it doesn't make sense to him if she could leave so easily. He figures she does this all the time because she's just searching for love like he is. So if she won't believe something will work, she shouldn't put her faith in it because she'll only end up hurt. She's losing hope and she's letting go so he's ready to leave. He'll say all the things most people in relationships will say in the end of things. ♥ mayday parade is best♥
