Silverstein – Replace you lyrics

I'm the setting sun behind the trees,
The saddest one you've seen.
I've been burning holes and breaking dreams,
And I regret it.
I'm fixing things I've broken,
It's not as easy, as it used to be.
I'm throwing temper tantrums,
I used to settle but now I make a scene,
You can't believe.

I said I'd never walk away,
But I'm not able to stay.
I said I'd never leave this place,
But I can't stay here.
To watch you fade, and watch you change in,
To someone I can't face.
I can't replace I, can't replace you.

You're the swirling wind above the sea,
The maddest storm they've seen.
Now your breaking waves and smashing dreams,
And you can't help it.

You're drowning streets and stranding a million people,
You're starting out with me.
You're crashing down from anger, you stop and settle, and now you're sound asleep.
And so serene.

I said I'd never walk away,
But I'm not able to stay.
I said I'd never leave this place,
But I can't stay here.
To watch you fade, and watch you change in,
To someone I can't face.
I can't replace I, can't replace you.

And when the sun is down,
And when the skies are calm you'll see, calm we'll be.
Wait for the cycle,
We'll repeat our same mistakes (same mistakes)
The same mistakes we've always made.

I said I'd never walk away,
But I'm not able to stay.
I said I'd never leave this place,
But I can't stay here.
To watch you fade, and watch you change in,
To someone I can't face.
I can't replace I, can't replace you. (replace you)

I said I'd never walk away,
But I'm not able to stay.
I said I'd never leave this place,
But I can't stay here.
To watch you fade, and watch you change in,
To someone I can't face.
I can't replace I, can't replace you.

I said I'd never walk away...

    I love this song! This song reminds me of a pair of people madly in love, but never show each other. When they die they regret that they never got the chance to see each other. They want their lives to start over so that they can ask each other to love them, and then their lives are good again. The guy thinks the girl is crazy and beautiful, but he had made so many mistakes that she just doesn't notice him.
