Amanda:

Self examination

A total lack of concentration

We thought the pills would make it all better

You had a feeling that feeling those feelings would bring you so far down you wouldn't get better


A combination of self obliteration

And a need for approval


I would love to see you now

Drawing your cares away

To create something you loved

But that project took too long i guess

Your clock stopped working so you thought you were out of time


A combination of self obliteration

And a need for approval

You need us,

But now you're in need

Of them


A combination of self obliteration

And a need for approval

You need us,

But now you're in need

Of them

 

If I Could:

If I could go back a year

I would erase these tears

Cause I would have another day

To tell you what I locked away

In my heart


But I blew it 

And I can't go back

To the times we had

And now I'm feeling mad at myself

Cause I'm looking like a fool

As you're headed off to school 

And I am missing you

If only you knew

How hard it was to say

I loved you and I wanted you to stay


If I could go back a year

I would erase these tears

Cause I would have another day

To tell you what I locked away

Cause my heart's filled with fear

And my thoughts are so unclear


Yeah I blew it 

And I can't go back

To the times we had

And now I'm feeling mad at myself

Cause I threw it all away

And I need to go back to that day

To tell you 

I love you

I need you

I want you here

But I won't see you for a year

But I won't see you for a year


If I could go back a year

I would erase these tears

Cause I would have another day

To tell you what I locked away

Cause my heart's filled with fear

And my thoughts are so unclear


Cause now I'm crying

And feel like dying


If I could go back a year

I would erase these tears

Cause I would have another day

To tell you what I locked away

In my heart

But now you're gone

Yeah you're gone

For so long
