Song lyrics
In fields where nothing grew but weeds
I found a flower at my feet
Bending there in my direction
I wrapped a hand around its stem
I pulled until the roots gave in
Finding now what I've been missing
And I know...

So I tell myself
tell myself it's wrong
Theres a point we pass in which we can't return
I felt the cold rain of the coming storm

All because of you
I havent slept in so long
When I do I dream
Of drowning in the ocean
Longing for the shore
Where I can lay my head down
I'll follow your voice
All you have to do
Is shout it out

Inside my hands these petals browned
Dried up fallen to the ground
But it was already too late now
I pushed my fingers through the earth
Returned this flower to the dirt
So it could live I walked away now

But I know
Not a day goes by when I dont feel this burn
There's a point we pass in which we cant return
I felt the cold rain of the coming storm

All because of you
I havent slept in so long
When I do I dream
Of drowning in the ocean
Longing for the shore
Where I can lay my head down
I'll follow your voice
All you have to do
Is shout it out

All because of you
All because of you
All because of you
I havent slept in so long
When I do I dream
Of drowning in the ocean
Longing for the shore
Where I can lay my head down
Inside these arms of yours
All because of you
I believe in angels
Not the kind with wings
No not the kind with halos
The kind that bring you home
When home becomes a strange place
I'll follow your voice
All you have to do
Is shout it out

That song was killer. They played it at the buzz bake sale 2007. It was so hardcore. Too bad i couldn't get their signature. They kicked ass!
I love the rhythm and the instruments, but the lyrics were okay, but still totally awesome.

I love this band, but this song, man, they really outdid themselves.

"all because of you
i believe in angels
not the kind with wings
no not the kind with halos
the kind that bring you hope
when home becomes a strange place..."

my favorite part. its so pretty!
