Mayday Parade – If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet? lyrics

Baby, I sorely miss the vibrant gleam that's in your eyes
I'll write a song about it
And maybe if the melody's just right
I hope tonight it will find you
It will remind you

But what's holding me back
Is the thought of time we never had
My world's hanging by three words that I can't bear to say

When you hear this chorus
Do you miss the way the world was spinning for us?
Do you hurt the way that I do?
After all this time you
Leave me broken
This song is every word I'd left unspoken
When you hear this, girl, I'm hoping
That you'll think of us
That you'll think of us

Baby, I told myself that I'll be fine but it's a lie
I don't wanna talk about it
The memories
Oh, they cut like knives
Deep inside, I'm falling
Baby, catch me if you can

What's holding me back
Is the thought of time we never had
My world's hanging by three words that I can't bear to say

When you hear this chorus
Do you miss the way the world was spinning for us?
Do you hurt the way that I do?
After all this time you
Leave me broken
This song is every word I left unspoken
When you hear this, girl, I'm hoping
That you'll think of us

When you hear this chorus
Do you miss the way the world was spinning for us?
Do you hurt the way that I do?
After all this time you
Leave me broken
This song is every word I'd left unspoken
When you hear this, girl, I'm hoping
That you'll think of us
That you'll think of us

Baby, I sorely miss the vibrant gleam that's in your eyes

    This song speaks a lot of my feelings out, but I took it a different way then most.
    To me this song brings back the memories of when my boyfriend and I hit a rocky point in our relationship when he confessed he had cheated on me. I started to fall apart day by day, so did he. Our relationship was becoming cracked, chipped and broken. It felt like our relationship was falling apart in front of us. And this speaks the feelings and scenarios perfectly to me and brings back a lot of emotions. I love this band it stirs my feelings around and I find way to relate and feel all their songs.

    Ahh man. I can't tell you exactly what this song mean to me but I will share some. I fell on love with my best friend (she knows). She says she loves me the same way but just always has an excuse to why she can't be with me whether it's she's afraid it'll mess up our friendship or she just doesn't want a boyfriend. Anyway the part of the song that says "what holding me back is the thought of tome we never had" always gets to me because everyone knows her and I are meant for each other except her. And I can't move on to date other people cause I'm too caught up on thinking about what could be. :( anybody got any advice?

    Mayday Parade is such an amazing band. All thier songs have meanings that alot of people can relate. For example in this song, he sings aobut a girl who he misses, but could never say I love you to. So I'm guessing she left him and hes hurting, so he wrote this song for her so she could she what he always wanted to say. Well that's what I think.
