And my words will be here when I'm gone
As I'm fading away against the wind
And the words you left me linger on
As I'm failing again now, never to change this

And I'm sympathetic,
Never letting on I feel the way I do
As I'm falling apart again at the seam

And it seems I'm alone here, hollow again
As I'm flailing again against the wind
And the scars I am left with swallow again
As I'm failing again now, never to change this

And I'm sympathetic,
Never letting on I feel the way I do
As I'm falling apart again at the seam
And I'm sympathetic,
Never letting on I feel the way I do
As I'm falling apart again at the seam

The same old feelings are taking over
And I can't seem to make them go away
And I can't take all the pressure sober,
But I can't seem to make it go away
The same old feelings are taking over
And I can't seem to make them go away
And I can't take all the pressure sober
(I can't make it go away. I can't make it go away)

And I'm sympathetic,
Never letting on I feel the way I do
As I'm falling apart again at the seam
And I'm sympathetic,
Never letting on I feel the way I do
As I'm falling apart again at the seam
And I'm falling, falling, falling,
Falling, falling, falling, falling
Apart again at the seam

    My interpretation of "Sympathetic" is expressing concern, or sympathy, for someone else's plight; while all the time concealing my own pain...only to be forced to deal with it in private the only way I know how: "And I can't take all the pressure sober"...

    My interpretation: "I know how you feel, I never let anyone see that I'm really not any better than I used to be and that I know eventually, I will fall back to old habits."
