Cast Away

Story Behind The Song

My first major love broke my heart and although it almost stopped, she didn't skip a beat. I couldn't be the exact person she wanted me to be. When I finally had enough and rejected that image, she got rid of me like I was nothing to her the whole time.

Lyrics

Cast Away


Make a ring. Then, break a ring.
Take what we had. Take everything.
'Cause when we lived you know I was dead,
But now all that shit's cleared from my head.

Maybe you'll find that one special guy who lives up to your mind.
Maybe you'll cry, but I won't be there this time.

And I wanna say I've been cast away like some used up broken ashtray.
And I wanna write what you said that night:
How I'm at a different stage in life.

Stage in life.

Maybe I'm blind. The thought crossed my mind, then I woke up in time.
Maybe you're right, but you just can't win this fight.

And I wanna say how easily it was for you to get rid of me.
And I wanna fly. Yes I so wanna try,
But I don't know how to live your lie.

Live your lie.

Maybe you'll find that one special guy who lives in your mind.
Maybe you'll realize that I won't be there when you whine.

And I wanna say I've been cast away like some used up broken ashtray.
And I wanna fly. Yes I so wanna try,
But I don't know how to live your lie.
Yes, I wanna say I've been cast away like some used up broken ashtray.
And I wanna write what you said that night:
How I'm at a different stage in life.
