anberlin / exclusive.

By Jamie Tworkowski

The new song on our page is called “Disappear”. Our friends in Anberlin posted it a couple hours ago. (They also updated their MySpace so everything is green and orange and awesome now.) The Anberlin guys are pretty much family to us – i was thinking about this yesterday standing with a bunch of folks from our team, watching the guys play Main Stage at Warped in Orlando… i’ve known Stephen and Deon since days before Anberlin (We’re all from Florida. It’s a long story and it’s pretty funny but it’s better when Stephen tells it.) The new song on our page is called “Disappear”. Our friends in Anberlin posted it a couple hours ago.

Anyway, i heard “Disappear” this afternoon, added it as our new song, and sent the following text to the members of Anberlin:
“Your new song is our new song and it is certainly good. Hooray for MySpace.”

Stephen replied a minute later with “The lyrics are about not forgetting the homeless.” He sent a top-secret link to the lyrics and said i was welcome to post them as an exclusive blog. So here it is, ladies and gentlemen, the first-ever “exclusive” blog in the history of To Write Love on Her Arms, compliments of Mr. Stephen Christian.

Sidenote: Someday, you will be sitting next to a friend and this song will come on and they will say “i like this song, i am going to google the lyrics.” And you will say “Oh, i remember when TWLOHA posted those. It was an exclusive blog.” Your friend will look at you funny but you will be correct.

enjoy.

Disappear (by Anberlin)

we are the last of the sleepless ones
left behind by those we left behind tonight
quiet now let our poison take
were we always just your lost cause mistakes

wait for me will you wait for me
need you by my side
way for me make way for me
with arms wide

alone left alone
watch us slowly disappear with time
unknown still unknown
forgotten, lost, & left behind

dark lit streets are no place for kids
but it gives us more of a home than you ever did
we’re the silentist’s left to our own demise
you’re still our last chance to get out of this place alive

wait for me will you wait for me
with arms wide

alone left alone
watch us slowly disappear with time
unknown still unknown
forgotten, lost, & left behind
