Song lyrics
And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
and sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

It took me a long time to fall for this song, but when I finally stopped to listen to it, I loved it and was able to identify with some of the lyrics. Great song!

The most Beatiful Rock Song Ever! It always makes me feel like i'm on a beach. I actually was on a beach vacation the first time I heard this.I just accidentally found this song on my ipod when i copied the itunes library from one of my school's computers onto my ipod last year and i fell in love with it.

Iris? Why is the song name after? A girls name? Anyway, everyone can realte to the song. The chorus really expresses my feelings it's such a romantic song but it's not cheesy! "When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am". That is the most heart warming lyric ever! And it's true! GO GOO GOO DOLLS!


[offtopic]RIRIS! Remember this song.. HAHA..it rminds me of the 8th grade. Don't think too much about Rama he's gonna break up with NnnITtha(whowever you spell it) anyway. Don't give up[picture=]
