You gave me a heartbreak sandwich
when you went to college.
You just picked up and left to learn
about the environment.
I wanna forget you but didn't wanna
let you leave town without telling me
we're something that you'll remember.
Then it all fell down when I didn't
call you up.
I hope now we can spend some honost
time, if you come home.

I know I gave you a dirt sandwich.
When you need to cry, and I wanted
to kiss.
The picture we ended in a painting was
of a plane and a half eaten sandwich.
Meaning, we always took what we wanted
and left the rest.
Then it all fell down when I didn't
call you up.
I hope now we can spend some honost
time, when you come home.

I don't wanna forget you.
But I'm gonna let you go on with your
life while I trudge through mine.
I don't wanna forget you.
But I'm gonna let you go on with your
life while I trudge...through...mine.

    General Commentthis sounds to me like the guy in the song's girlfriend left for college, and in the excitement of her new life didn't find time to keep in touch, which he's bitter about. but because he was so hurt, when she did come home for some solace, he hurt her back, and now may regret it. he knows he'll pine for her for a long time, but he love her enough to not want her to feel tied to him because of that. he's trying to let her go have her new life, and figure his way out through his life without her.
