I held onto you
For as long as I could
But today, you fell away
Now what I hold
Are the memories we barely made
I stood on the edge of your bridge
Until I felt the rain, push me away
My confusion left me fast as the vertigo came

What I believed to be true
It was only a dream
That lived in me
I just projected it
Over your beautiful screen
I self medicated my way
Through this mess that we made
So I could stay
There was nothing, but I waited
I waited

This was my mistake
Broken are plans we made
So I will be traveling any place
Cause anywhere's better than
Here we rest in peace
Rubble beneath my feet
I shouldn't have followed you anywhere
Cause anywhere's better than here

Where is the space I could move
Where could I rest my head
There's nothing left for me here
It's hard to leave behind
The one thing that made me feel alive
So I slide, from paranoid to paradise

This was my mistake
Broken are plans we made
So I will be traveling any place
Cause anywhere's better than here

This was my mistake
Broken are plans we made
Here we rest in peace
Rubble beneath the feet
I shouldn't have followed you anywhere
Cause anywhere's better than here

    This is exactly whats going on with me and a guy i was seeing that i had been friends with for years. We have been hanging out ALOT (and sleeping together lol) and the agreement at the beginning was it was just going to be all for fun...then i decided i wanted more...but he said he didnt know...i let it go for a few more weeks then brought it up again...he still said no...i told him that that would be the last night we spent together which reminds me of the line "I held onto you for as long as i could but today you fell away"...i let him go Then the part that ways "this was my mistake" ...i was the one who believed it could be more so it was my mistake for believeing that. "I self medicated myself through this mess so I could stay"--- i drank more with this guy than i probably ever have which helped me believe it was ok to stick around. The line that says "i slide from paranoid to paradise"...i was always worried it was going to end but now i ended it and it feels so much better not having that feeling of hoping he will change his mind.

    mannn same exact thing here!!! last year he would write me poems everyday and he was so determined to make me be his, and i told him i was scared to be with him because of college, and he told me not to worry about anything because i was the only girl he ever wanted to be with and he loved me more than anything, and so finally i said i'd be his gf and we spent the summer together. then he left for college (which is only 2 hours away), and he'd call me everyday and he'd come home on the weekends, and 3months later, he tells me he needs a break...and then a week later i find out he's in a relationship with another girl...and all he can say is "im sorry, i'm just going with the flow"...and i feel so screwed over and this song is perfect for it.

    I agree
    and that just happend to me too =[[
    Every day he told me he loved me and that we would be together forever and we'd talk about getting married and living together, and then he left me a few days ago cause he said the long distance wasn't really working out. (but I really think he just found another girl)
    but I've been listening to this sone for the past two days cause everyone keeps giving me these sad faces and telling me they're sorry and I really don't need to be reminded
    =[

    this reminds me of a relationship i was in. it was long distance, and all we did was make plans for our future. and he would tell me everyday he loved me. after a while, he just left me. and now i want to just pretend it never happened, i wish i never believed him and got into the relationship. basically, thats, to me, what the song is saying.

    this means the guy is mad and wants to start his life over. he got in a messy relationship that he just wants to pretend never happened.
