"Stories" as written by and Christopher Taylor/ormandy Brown....
I found a line and then it grew
I found myself still thinking of you
And I felt so empty and now I'm fine
But it's still burning when will you be mine?

Too much of the same stories in our lives
I think it's time to change, don't you?
Too much of the same stories in our lives
I think it's time for us to walk away from here

Stories in our lives, we keep them all inside
Stories in our lives, we kepp them all inside

Look at me still in your mind
Our memories so intertwined
Well you broke through and found your way
And so did I no need to stay
The same old picture, tried and true
We've been through that, let's look fro something new

Too much of the same stories in our lives
I think it's time to change, don't you?
Too much of the same stories in our lives
I think it's time for us to walk away from here

Do you remember lying on the beach so late at night
Do you remember running through the sprinklers that night
Do you remember all the songs that I have wrote for you,
all the songs that I have wrote for you
For you, for you
I remember the way you made me feel when I was with you
I remember the smile that always brought me back to you
That look in your eyes I never thought that this could be untrue
That look in your eyes I never thought that this could be untrue

Too much of the same stories in our lives
I think it's time to change, don't you?
Too much of the same stories in our lives
I think it's time for us to walk away from here

    General Commentwhen i 1st heard this song, my relationship with my boyfriend was somewhat rocky, but we still had a very strong bond of friendship. At 1st, i thought it was a sign we should step back from things, and give it time to progress. a sign that too many things were the same in our lives because we never spent time with anyone else but each other. I saw this song as a couple that needed space. then, when my boyfriend and i had broken up, and we were both doing our own things, and living in our own apartments, yet still best friends, i saw this song in a different, positive light. I saw it as two very close friends that decide that they have so much in common, that they should take it to the next level. now, i think of it this way:
    1st line: "I found a lie, and then it grew"~i made my own assumption that he was cheating on me; i had nothing to back it up, but i convinced myself, "well, why WOULDNT he?" he wasnt...
    2nd line: "I found myself still thinking of you; I felt so empty, and now I'm fine; but still its burning, when will you be mine"~when we were in the process of breaking up, i never thought i could make it on my own, but now i realize im fine. however, i know that we are meant for each other, and still i wonder when.
    3rd: "Too much of the same...walk away from here"~we have been away from each other for some time, and everything is ho-hum boring without him. we should be back together, but without everyone else putting in their opinions.
    4th: "Now look at me still in your mind; our memories so intertwined"~we are so much alike that we are actually replaying the same memories over in both our minds!
    5th: "Well you broke through, and found your way, and so did i, no need to stay"~(we both work for the same company, in different locations) he got through his promotion, i got my own apartment and im on my way to my promotion, we should move on together.
    6th: "Do you remember...I never thought that this would be untrue"~we both remember all the good times we had together, and there were so many of them. we rarely fought, and we knew how to make up. basically, to me, the last line is a double negative, and that our relationship always WAS true, and that it will pick up again when its right for both of us.
    sorry this is so long, but i needed to get that out.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. I think the meaning of this song is rather strait forward; a guy who is thinking about a past relationship and trying to forget because afterall there are "too much of the same stories in our lives", yet the end of the song shows his emotion.. he wants her back..."I remember the way you made me feel when I was with you". Its a song about remembering, yet eventually realizing that "it's time for us to walk away from here". I'm in one of those situations and I'm trying to walk away but I remember lying on the beach so late at night... its hard..

    General CommentThis is a really touching and sad song. The line "that look in your eyes I never thought that this would be untrue" was the most impactful for me. It's a sad but beautiful song.

    General CommentThis song means so much to me...Its about reflecting on a relationship that has been totally trashed. And hes basically saying theres too many times that this happens and its time to change our ways. Its really unfortunate cause it was a beautiful relationship to him and he really just misses her and wishes he could be with her. THIS WORLD SUCKS
