Hawthorne Heights – This Is Who We Are lyrics

Between the future and the past tense
Lies the present and the distance
So you think we're never coming back
Scoring points for passion and persistence
Between the lines and the highway
Lies the danger and the safety
You never thought this was gonna last
I always knew you'd never take it back

I always knew (I always knew)

[Chorus: x2]
I know it seems like we're never coming back
I know it feels like we're never coming back
You tried your best and you knew it wouldn't last
They were the words that she placed on her casket

Between the sadness and the smile
Lies the flicker of the fire
You always said this never hurt you
I always said you were a liar
With the all the towers and the wires
There still lies a little silence
Two hearts and one connection
One voice lacks emotion now

I always knew (I always knew)

[Chorus x2]

Instead of flowers like words that never mattered
Close it off forget about the sadness
(close it off forget about the sadness)
He always said she should have tried crying
Blaming him, as she was lying down

Not coming back (Not coming back)
Not coming back (Not coming back)

[Chorus x2]

    We love you casey! And to everyone else in Hawthorne Heights, sorry for your insane loss.
    Okay time for my meaning.
    This song to me is saying someone played far too much and this is how the other person gets over them. "Instead of flowers like words that never mattered" Who would write that without a broken heart in mind? Hawthorne Heights ~ you're truly amazing. Every song they write has an insanely intelligent meaning behind it, only people never get passed their look to peer into the music. Thanks Guys:)
