Airborne Toxic Event, The - The Fifth Day Lyrics




And I was alone
On the fifth day since you've gone
This broken glass; this early morn
I rub my eyes in the haze
I'm not sleeping anyway
I watch the sun rise up
In the city where I was born

I could call you now
Wouldn't matter what I'd say
Words just aren't enough
I hear our song; press repeat
I smell your perfume on the sheets
You always said, "Boy, you're not so tough"

And only now can I say,
"No matter how I shake and shape
It's these things that make you a man"
And frozen mind begins to thaw
You think, "My God, my God, my God
Where was it I began?"

"I wish you were," is what I'd say
If you asked me in the light of day
But these nights are like a dream I can't shake
And there's your hair and there's your head
And there's your empty place on the bed
I wish I could scream myself awake

But I won't go back to what I was
And I know now that you are lost
It's your choices that make you a man
And frozen mind begins to thaw
You think, "My God, my God, my God
Where was it I began?"

    Everyone goes through their own problems but up to the end of season 4 Fiona was the best she was the mom the dad the guardian the elder sister and even a friend to her younger siblings..... Fiona ♥️ that's for women out there who are like Fiona

  2. Len Lockwood

  3. Rod Racer

    2019...😻😻

  4. GreenDaddy

    I was teaching my 10 year old the definition of "underrated" recently and told him a few bands I would put on that list. This one is well-deserved to be on there.

    Been hours alone
    on the fifth day since you've gone
    This broken glass
    This early morn'

    I rub my eyes in the haze
    I'm not sleeping anyway

    In the city where I was born

    I could call you now

    But these nights are like a dream I can't shake
    And there's your hair and there's your head
    And there's your empty dress on the bed
    I wish I could scream myself awake

    But I won't go back to what I was
    And I know now that you are lost
    It's your choices that make you a man
    And frozen mind begins to thaw

    Songwriters: Mikel Frans Jollett

    Juma Abel

    Thanks for the lyrics
    Now listening to the song and singing along that's now even more touching and emotional 😭

  8. Jim Guthals

    Great guitar.. Song stands on its own. Frank would steal the riff......my god my god my god...

  9. Raphael Rodrigue

    I'm here because of shameless

  10. Ayha Jhona

    Shameless brought me here :(

  11. James Mathews

    Am I the only person who bought this album when it first came out because they liked the previous album from this band? Or is everyone here because of an overrated show?... Now THAT is shameless. A damn shame it takes a TV show to introduce you to good music.

  12. Rob

    Shameless 😭😭😭

  13. Rahul .Kumar

    the whistle part @3:50 is so calming !

  14. Rahul .Kumar

    I am hooked to shameless, binge watching all seasons. I need help !!

  15. sunshine

    Miss and love u Kathy

  16. Sphamandla Mtshali

    Shameless is so funny and emotional a some point, not mentioning that it is also  educational.

  17. ʀʀ

    is the song uploaded on spotify? i can't find it

  18. ʀʀ

    shameless brought me here. :(

  19. Josiah Kimani

    This song made me tear in shameless

  20. Randy Howard

    all u shamless ppl shole listen to the rest of ate cds

  21. xxxBlueIncendiaxxx

    When 3:34 starts I almost feel like crying. Such a nice piece of music.

  22. Omkar Salvi

    I literally cried the whole episode seeing Ian and Mickey and Debbie and Carl crying and hugging Fiona. shameless is life, shameless is love.

  23. mita neluheni

    LoLest yep. Shameless brought me here!

  24. Valerio Scalzo Baritone

    Pink Floyd - Goodbye cruel world

    Enfuegotainment

    THE WALL is my favorite album EVER. Love TATE as well, but this comparison is TOTALLY off base.

    jon reich

    Jaime' En Fuego
    I agree with Valerio, while the lyrical theme is different, the melody and progression are very similar.

  25. Mattia Monzo

    plagiarism of Goodbye Cruel World....

    Enfuegotainment

    THE WALL is my favorite album, but still can't figure out how a hushed short arrangement can be compared to this sweeping epic.

  26. Aditya Harit

    That perfect blend of instruments near the end...

    C. Anders

    The one person actually talking about the music ugh.

  27. NeoKan Afrika

    Like most people, Shameless brought me here. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SONG!

  28. project ninja

    Shameless 100likes

  29. aloke pm

    Google User

    kmilliams8304

    Bryant Trio

    ✋✋👋👋👐👐👐👐

  31. Trashy sylvia

    shameless ^^ as always

  32. QueerAndUnplugged

    Songs like this remind you that you're alive, that you share in common with many others that longing for connection. And I'm not embarrassed to say that Shameless brought me here and has introduced me to some amazing characters and storytelling as well as some GREAT music.

  33. SmaYK BRO

    i'm found this song , shameles 4 season last epizode :'(

  34. mynameisvampka

    Okay, I came for the music because I always loved ATE but now I feel like I should start to watch Shameless...

    C. Anders

    Don't.
    Unless you like crappy alcoholic fathers who beat their kids for being gay.

  35. Sage Dahl

    shameless:')))))

    Juma Abel

    Not just shameless Fiona she was the best.....

  36. Dominique Matta

    I had no idea the lead singer was so attractive

  37. Dea Sali

    Shameless is love. it makes u feel happy, sad, full of hope or hopeless at the same time. shameless is art. i love every second of that show

    Gabin Peytier

  43. Liêu Phi Bằng

    After watching the show , I know this song is going to be my jam for the next 6 months 

  44. KKB1976

    I love this song!!

  45. Brady Kristoff

    Shameless made me tear up this season more than it ever has. Fiona is my all time favorite next to Lip. If Emmy Rossum isn't nominated for something for this season there is something wrong with the world. 

    Crowper MCO

    There's something wrong with the world. William and Joan were nominated, but Emmy no :'(

    Brady Kristoff

    I know! I'm so mad about that! She made me feel things! This was a Fiona Gallagher we never saw before. She deserved a nom

    Crowper MCO

    Now let's see if William H. Macy gets the Emmy for that amazing ending.

  46. The Wilson

    Shameless :)

  47. MiZappeR

    shameless :) beautiful song!

    stefany

    jon reich

    seefishbee

  64. Natália Teixeira

    Colleen Hoover brought me here!!!!
    4 months till Ugly Love release date...
    CAN'T WAIT!!!!

  65. falcons79macwhite

    Ok this is the worst song to lessen to after a break up

  66. LTSal2011

    But I won't go back to what I was
    And I know now that you are lost
    It's your choices that make you a man

    Can't wait to see them again. Hope they come back to Visalia soon.

  67. Chris Hill

    It's between him and Win Butler... Both very underrated yet incredibly talented singer songwriters

  68. bosoxrox18

    You know you're far too literal for you to apply to me as well as you do. Well, did. I'd hate you if I didn't already love you too much.

  69. Kylee Rayner

    im crying this is so beautiful

  70. fabianchristine

    Vraiment bon, cet extrait me donne la chaire de poule !!

  71. Kim Frans

    I want to see them in concert!

  72. tittogofte

    Me too!! Somehow I think its an old traditional song.....but I just cant figure it out! About to go insane!!

  73. Joseph S. Hebda

    They are so much fun in concert. Go see them you won't be disappointed!

  74. theonlyone38

    You know it's really rare to find a band that is not only willing to go to great lengths to make music that is quality, but also isn't afraid to show off their instrumentals. I truly believe that music is missing a lot of depth right now, and it so refreshing to hear a band that doesn't care about the length of the song, but rather the content in it.

    Enfuegotainment

    Exactly, which made me so sad when they cut back on their musicianship on their recent release. I know it was an experimental departure, but they really felt like they'd been growing to something with their first 3 albums leading to this one.

  75. ashnnaina

    I feel like I'm in love whenever I listen to any song from this band. I wonder if that made sense LOL

  76. Mr. Grapes

    Dammit, I didn't even notice until I read this comment. What have you done to me?!?

  77. Evelyn Muñoz

    thank you for turning feelings i can't even express into art that i can connect to. seriously, sometimes, it's like this band is writing the soundtrack to my life. just last night, i realized some stuff and was having a hard time and all i could think about was this song and these words and how completely true they are.
    "but i won't go back to what i was"
    hell no, never.

  78. lajmjs

    Thank you for the music, the songs YOU'RE singing Thanks for all the joy they're bringing Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty? What would life be? Without a song or a dance what are we? So I say thank you for the music For giving it to me


  79. jackkurzon

    Inspiring.

  80. crazyastape2434

    "words just aren't enough" to describe just how amazing this band is

  81. friargreg75

    Amazing song, so emotional and beautiful

  82. J Frank

    the Rythym and tone of the words remind me of another older song.
    It is driving me crazy

  83. Felipe Calvo

    Noise on left headphone when Anna sings drives me crazy. I can't be the only one.

  84. Sheri Hunter

    Wow, these guys & gals are SOOOOOOO talented. Love this song too.

  85. adrian ramos

    Not gonna lie I teared up

  86. Irrational Geographic

    Once again another amazing album, so very rare for a singer songwriter to effect you on so many levels that us mere mortals will never understand, Mikel has to be one of the best if not the best singer songwriter of this generation.
