When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

[Lyrics - Seether and Amy Lee version]

[Seether]

I wanted you to know that I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph
And I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

[Seether and Amy Lee version]

'Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

[Seether]

You've gone away, you don't feel me here ... anymore

[Amy Lee]

The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high and steal my pain away
There’s so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

[Seether and Amy Lee]

'Cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

[Instrumental]

'Cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away
'Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone

[Seether]

You've gone away, you don't feel me here ... anymore
