All I Was - Lyrics thread

Postby Crumbso » Wed Jun 20, 2012 9:23 pm

Hi guys. Here's what I've managed to piece together of the lyrics from all the previews. Alot of it may be wrong and the highlighted ones I really don't know what Tremo is yammering about but hope you enjoy and discuss.

Man I really missed Tremonti lyrics, I feel much better now.


01 - LEAVE IT ALONE

You throw me a sign and now leave it alone
So I can bury my own
I tear at this pain, this darkness I've known
This time it has won

Retreat inside until the threat is gone



02 - SO YOU'RE AFRAID

...inside has finally torn
And now the walls they fall on me
Now they fall on me

So you're afraid
Sad it's a long way down
With everything said
You were hurting but you're much better now
Now all the time's spent



03 - WISH YOU WELL

You never dealt with this before
You changed you grip, you know you did
We will not take no more
An empty hand is your sacrifice
It's your upper hand for the last time

I wish you well, I wish you
I wish you well, I wish you
I wish you well, I wish you

Your vanity it proved such a waste
You're sick so long you can't forget your place
Can't you see....



04 - BRAINS

Is this what you're dying for?
Been stripped of your pride
Been damned before
But you never learn
Are you really.....



05 - THE THINGS I'VE SEEN

And you know it won't belong/ be long
Someone you'd never know

Don't claim that you know me
When you know very well
That I have seen through it all

And don't claim that you know why
When you know everything
When you've seen things
For what they are/were

Inside you feel it taking over
It's taking over
When you feel it most

It draws you in then tears it away
It tears it away
Then it leaves you lost



06 - YOU WASTE YOUR TIME

You should've seen both faces from the start
Beholden to the hate within your heart
You cast the world aside
In hiding from your burden one more time

But could it be your efforts were in vain?
Could it be your life is full of shame?
You threw it all away
You let it fall to pieces here today

You waste your time
You hide too much, don't ever let me find
What you're thinking, what's in your head?
You ask too much, don't ever let me be
Who are you?

We won't need to take it when you're gone
Won't embrace the lies where we long
Well you're afraid of cold
And you're afraid to face it when you've lost

A lot of ties were severed when you came
What if I could mend them once again
Well you're afraid to learn
Forced to watch those pleasures as they burn
Yeah, yeah!

You waste your time
You hide too much, don't ever let me find
What you're thinking, what's in your head?
You ask too much, don't ever let me be
Who are you?

(Solo)

You waste your time
You hide too much, don't ever let me find
What you're thinking, what's in your head?
You ask too much, don't ever let me be
Who are you?
Yeah!
Woah, yeah!
Who are you?!



07 - NEW WAY OUT

It's harder
Hard to fight through each day
Save us from breaking
Breaking down, but how?

Can we restore how it was?
Or is it gone?
Gone?

Here today...



08 - GIVING UP

Do you forget the pain?

You are not alone
You know I'm right
You were saved before

I don't know when I might give in
It's haunting me again
and I feel like just giving up

Today how it wears me thin
I'm weakening again



09 - PROOF

I pray now for the end
Trying/Try to find another goal
While others are erased
Feeding/feeling like your mothers own??!!

Lost, is the proof now



10 - ALL I WAS

Would it have reason? Have a name?
Would you truly hate it when it's gone?
You cursed it all along

All I was
So unlike the way you know me



11 - DOESN'T MATTER

To make it right
I'm forgiving all that's right because
I'm living another life

Inside the hate is gone
I've held it for too long
It could be right but it doesn't matter

This time the hurt is gone
This time we're too....



12 - DECAY

Look what you've gone and done to me

Reach down and throw it all away
You know this fight it can't be won
It can't be won

Face it, all we had we've wasted
Something like decay
You know it be long, before
We've spent, all our lives complaining

michael posted on twitter a while back that this Decay says They said, not Face it.

They said, all we had we've wasted
Something like decay
You know it be long, before
We've spent, all our lives complaining

Ya he tweeted it to me actually, but to be honest.. it sounds so similar and id rather it be Face It because it has greater meaning to me that way. As far as i am personally concerned im gonna sing along "FACE IT!!!"

These may or may not all be correct. I didn't go back and listen again, just used the lyrics I'd already typed out earlier.
