The Follow Through - Blue October

pride
it leaves you hollow
another attempt
just to settle the score
a war, you know the one you built it up
it's real defining
humiliation
knocks at your door
usually i blow up
i see, you cave in
we never found the line between
the real and pretend
you know you should accept it
this is really the end
i know for sure, what i have to do
is follow through
in everything i ever want to be
the only thing i ever needed no
i'd wait for you till time lay down to sleep
and i'd sneak across the world to let her know
yeah that's what i do
i follow through
oh i follow through
here i stand
i'm too close but still you're far away
you never tried but i did
we still remain divided
oh i can't believe that your heart's still beating
its beating for me at all
how sad of you
but i'm not sad at all
you say i blow up
i say you cave in
we never found the line between
the real and pretend
you know you should accept it

this is really the end
i know for sure, what i have to do
is follow through
and you were everything i ever want to be
the only one i ever need to know
i'd wait for you till time lay down to sleep
and i'd sneak across the world to let her know
and as it falls down into night we run away
once again divided
but each one knows just what we have to do
we do
we have to...follow through
i will lay down my heart
i will let you go
that's what's best for us all
(and now we stand beneath the clouds and God above)
(like we did before)
(but this time for her)
(i'll follow through)

and you were everything i ever want to be
the only one i ever need to know
i'd wait for you till time lay down to sleep
and i'd sneak across the world to let her know
hold my heart
patiently
take my hand
walk with me
cuz when the evening comes
we'll set the world on fire
i was wrong
let me help you live on
(can i stand)
(enough to follow through)
(its what i do for you)
(i'll follow through)
...let me help you live on...
