It's been years in the making
In my skin I am shaking from the cold
I am tired from the taking
And my heart it won't stop breaking and I know...
Moving forward can't be this hard

I'm just trying to find out
Who I am on my own
I had you right beside me
But now you're gone and I know
That when the room clears I'm still here
Who am I when I'm alone?

They say time is a healer
But it's more like a concealer for a scar
'Cause it never really leaves us
But it can always find us where we are, we are
Who thought it could ever be so hard?

I'm just trying to find out
Who I am on my own
I had you right beside me
But now you're gone and I know
That when the room clears I'm still here
Who am I when I'm alone?

ALONE!

There's so much I should have said when time was wearing thin
You're not here but someday I know I'll see you again

I'm just trying to find out
Who I am on my own
I had you right beside me
But now you're gone, you're gone!

I'm just trying to find out
Who I am on my own
I had you right beside me
But now you're gone and I know
That when the room clears I'm still here
Who am I when
The rooms clears, I'm still here who am I
The room clears, I'm still here when I'm alone?

    Its about someone trying to find out who they are after going through a breakup. It feels like they have changed and part of them is missing and now that the other is gone, they don't know who to be or how to act.

    I think its talking about when your left and feeling so down you feel like god as left you all by yourself, to defend and find your way back to him. Not necessarily a girl, but the journey with out god leaves you with nothing.

    This song describes exactly how i feel because i got in a fight with my best friend and she was always there for me. I told her everything, but she replaced me. I don't know who i am anymore because she gave me the courage to do everything i did. I have other friends, but it's just not the same without her.
