"Second Heartbeat" as written by Matthew Charles/haner Sanders and James Owen/baker Sullivan....
We keep writing, talking and planning, but everything's changing
We all know what to do but know one does it
Now this time has passed and full of regret
Two in my heart have left me a while, I stand alone
When they get back, it won't be the same
My life, you've always been there
Now you're gone and my heads spinning
Left the childhood, left the memories, left the good times in the past
Moving on your time has run out
Wishing the clock would stand still, the world can wait
Wasting away once again, once lived as friends

As time passes by, regrets for the rest of my life
The ones who I confide were gone in the black of the night

Never will I forget you, and all the memories past
So rarely I get to see your face
Growing I looked to you in guidance
We knew that time would kill us, but you're still so close to me

To me you were my life
To me you were my soul companion
Now you are so far away
Nothing can take away the time and the memories we had
Come back, to the days when we were young
Come back, to the days when nothing mattered
To the days when nothing mattered

And I feel that time passes by, regrets for the rest of my life
The ones who I confide were gone in the black of the night

    General Commentwow, this song is truely great, i love it. i think this song is talking about a gf as well, after they broke up hence the lines

    left the memories,
    left the good times in the past.
    Moving on… your time has run out.

    and

    Never will I forget you, and all the memories past.
    So rarely I get to see your face.
    Growing I looked to you in guidance.
    We knew that time would kill us, but you’re still so close to me

    and most of the rest of the song. at least thats what it seems to me. also the part as time pases by regrets for the rest of my life. he spent all this time and energy into this girl, but now its over and he feels like it was a waste and he regrets it bc she is gone now..............

    Song MeaningThe song is about friends and family growing old and all the hard ship you face in life, friends and enemies will come and go, but if you read the lyrics its about friends through childhood.

    General CommentKinda sounds like he lost a great friend, and now is full of regret. Or maybe thats too obvious.
