"Champagne High" as written by Ken Block, Jeff Beres, Andrew Copeland, Ryan Carter Newell and Mark E. Trojanowski....
I wasn't looking for a lifetime with you
And I never thought it would hurt just to hear
"I do" and "I do"
And I do a number on myself
And all that I thought to be
And you'll be the one
That just left me undone
By my own, hesitation

And for the million hours that we were
Well I'll smile and remember it all
Then I'll turn and go
While your story's completed mine is a long way from done.

[Chorus]
Well I'm on a champagne high
Where will I be when I stop wondering why
On a champagne high
I'd toast to the future but that'd be a lie
On a champagne high, high

Spring turned to summer
But then winter turned to mean
The distance seemed right
At the time it was best - to leave
And to leave behind
What I once thought was fine And so real - to me
And while I'm still gone
On the quest for my song
I'm at your - celebration

And for the million hours that we were
Well I'll smile and remember it all
Then I'll turn and go
While your story's completed mine is a long way from done.

[Chorus]

Your wagons been hitched to a star
Well now he'll be your thing that's new
Yeah what little I have you can borrow
'Cause I'm old and I'm blue

And for the million hours that we were
Well I'll smile and remember it all
Then I'll turn and go
While your story's completed mine is a long way from done.

Well I'm on a champagne high (so high)
Where will I be when I stop wondering why
On a champagne high (so high)
Toast to the future but that'd be a lie
On a champagne high
Where will I be when I stop wondering why
On a champagne high, high,
So high so high you left me undone
So high, so high you left me undone

    General CommentI think that this song is about Ken (the lead singer) at the wedding a someone who he used to be in love with. I think that they are still friends, but he is sitting at her wedding reflecting on how her life is complete but his is still unfinnished i.e.-
    "while your story's completed mine is a long way from done."
    This is a truly amazing and beautiful song about a guy who just wasn't ready for a life-time commitment, and his girlfriend left him to find someone who could give her what she really needed. The background vocal are amazing too...the song sounds great with the girl's voice sailing over the chorus.

    General CommentI always thought It was about someone dieing. Like how it says "Your storys compeleted but mine is a long way from done." I mean when someone dies their story ir life is over but, your still there and ur a ways away from dieing.

    General Commenti agree with txsnowbunny. it's definitely him at her wedding "and I never thought it would hurt just to hear "I do" and "I do"" and "I'm at your - celebration" and "Your wagons been hitched to a star Well now he'll be your thing that's new" this song is so pretty

    General Commentthis song is definitely about a guy who goes to the wedding of his ex. he never wanted to get married, but there's a hint of regret ("you'll be the one that just left me undone by my own hesitation") in his voice. he's trying to be happy for her, but he's still so hurt by their break up that he gets himself drunk on champagne. there's an old wedding rhyme that says the bride should wear something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.. ken sings, "he'll be your thing that's new. yeah, what little i have you can borrow, cuz i'm old and i'm blue". its a very, very emotional song.

    FAVORITE PART: [depends on mood]

    General Commenthey, this is a sad song but it's made good cause the guy is happy for her, and he isn't too whiney like catherineks said. It's bittersweet.

    General CommentThis is an awesome song, even though it can be kinda depressing. It's sweet in a strange way though, because even though there's regret in the lyrics, there's hope for her future. Like starlight said, emotional.
