"Amber Changing" as written by and Principe/mcilrath/barnes/mohney....
Information kept to myself and everyone wants to know,
I trust the words of nobody else cause I've been there before,
Your voice is wasted 'cause I'm not listening
The calloused fingers are wrapped around a black ball-point pen,
These eyes don't wander as far as they at one time did,
I've seen the future, it's fading faster

No place that I'd rather be than right here, right now
No time that I'd rather be than right here, right now

I'm on the other end begging you, pick up the phone,
A shaking whisper is answering, don't call anymore your voice is wasted 'cause no one's listening
Freeze me in that moment, thaw me in ten years,
When the fires burned out and the smoke (clears)

No place that I'd rather be than right here, right now
No time that I'd rather be than right here, right now

Let's just pretend, let's just pretend, tonight will never end
Let's just pretend, let's just pretend, tonight
Will never end

No place that I'd rather be than right here, right now
No time that I'd rather be than right here, right now

    General CommentI think the second verse is about a guy begging his ex-girlfriend to take him back, or to forgive him or something, but she refuses, and the guy just can't accept it.. He wants to be frozen in that moment because it's too painful for him to accept the fact that the relationship is over.. He hopes that in time, his feelings for her will burn out, so it wouldn't hurt as much as he does now..

    General CommentIt sounds like someone trying to get through to someone who needs them. A friend. A lover. A family member.

    They're fading. But you can't draw them back. You're begging them to listen but they can't hear you over the sound of their own pain.

    So if you freeze the moment, keep the night from ending then they can't leave you.

    General CommentI think this song is about when Tim found out he was having a daughter and I think his Girl friend now wife (IDK if they were married at this time)got into a big fight over it about him touring and being away from home so long and wanted him out but he was not going to give up.

    General CommentThe song is about being at a show. Tim said that when they played Toronto a while back. The line "no place that I'd rather be than right here, right now" states that pretty clearly. I wouldnt have guessed the meaning, but thats what it is.
