I took a look around
and I noticed that a year had gone by
don't ask me where it went
she never said good bye

no time to make amends
oh well I guess I'll take it all in stride
it won't be long till I come home

this thing will even out so clearly
and this life is running circles around me
and all I want to do is see you smile

I've got time for one more line
but I know it's not that much
no
and you can't see me to the door

I took a drive alone
to see the sun set one more time
is this as good as it gets?
sit back and hold on tight

no time to make amends
oh well I guess I'll take it all in stride
it won't be long till I come home

this thing will even out so clearly
and this life is running circles around me
and all I want to do is see you smile

I've got time for one more line
but I know it's not that much
no
and you can't see me to the door

You've got to get around my way
can you hear me now?
You've got to get around my way
can you hear me now?

this thing will even out so clearly
and this life is running circles around me
and all I want to do is see you smile

I've got time for one more line
but I know it's not that much
no
and you can't see me to the door?

    General CommentOk, this is one of the cetchiest songs ive heard in a long time. Its simply awesome. Now im pretty sure that its talking about suicide. His life is just too fast paced and he cant keep up. Hes just doing the last things before he ends it. Lemme know what you think.

    General CommentYeah, hearing it again, it does seem like a song about suicide, or at least contemplation of it. Hopefully the last sunset he saw wasn't really the last one...

    General CommentYup, suicide is right, thats at least what i think
    at first i thought "hey wow, he really seems to have something he is longing for"
    luckily it wasnt the last line at all :)
