You come to me with scars on your wrist
You tell me this will be the last night feeling like this
I just came to say goodbye
I didn't want you to see me cry, I'm fine
But I know it's a lie

[Chorus:]
This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm everywhere you want me to be
The last night you'll spend alone
I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go
I'm everything You need me to be

Your parents say everything is your fault
But they don't know you like I know you they don't know you at all

I'm so sick of when they say
It's just a phase, you'll be o.k. you're fine
But I know it's a lie

This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm everywhere you want me to be
The last night you'll spend alone
I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go
I'm everything you need me to be

Away From me

[Bridge:]
The night is so long when everything's wrong
If you give me your hand
I will help you hold on
Tonight
Tonight
(Chorus)

[Outro:]
I won't let you say goodbye
And I'll be your reason why
The last night away from me
Away from me

    to me this is someone who is saying that they will be there for you, even when you feel like you have no one else. they may not know what your going through exactly, but they wont coddle you or treat you like an ignorant child either. and no matter what they will not let you go, even if you want them to.

    the lead singer of skillet dedicated this song to a girl that had contacted him over there website saying that she had a terrible family, no more friends left, she cut, and she was thinking about suicide. later, when she told him she was saying her goodbyes cuz she was going to do it, skillet ended up confronting her at her house and talked with her and made her happy and let her know their is a god out there that loves her and is the only friend she needs and to pray to him whenever she was down... i thought it was sweet, even though i am not a christian, but this song is life-changing for most people, i believe. rock on, skillet!!! ^^

    i luv skillet so much. they took a real world problem of how a girl is cutting herself and shows that if the girl comes to God, she will never have to be alone again.

    this song makes me want to cry, the only difference from myself and the girl is i've never had anyone but myself. i think what this song is saying is that they will always be there no matter what. when life and people push you down, they'll be there to pick you up. they won't push you away like everyone else.
