"Conversations" as written by Scott Anderson, Sean Anderson, Rich Beddoe, James Black and Rick Jackett....
Something changing
The secret is building
Almost over and somehow seems a beginning
Losing focus
It must be boring
Looking forward never turns out the wrong way

Conversations alone
Complicate us together on our own
Conversations alone
So alone

No one calling
But someone is bound to reply
No one out there
But someone hears every word
I know we're playing the same game
Easing the conscience by

The road was taken
The path led on
Til a new one's left to clear
The signal's given
The show turned on til emotion cut too near

The road was taken
The path led on
The signals given
The show turned on
Still receiving
And still believing
The time that you take isn't gone

Keep us from together on our own
Together on our own

    General CommentHmm, this is an interesting song. I think the first part could be about going crazy and talking to yourself, hearing voices and thigs like that but i dont think so cuz that wouldnt explain the part about the paths. its interesting, but even though I dont know what it means the lyric "no one calling, but someone is bound to reply" is one of my favorite of all time.

    General Commenti'd say that this song is about two people who have feelings for each other and both of them know it ("the signals given") and yet they can't seem to actually get together. each of them are more or less doing the same thing, hence "i know we're playing the same game". since they know they're both doing the same thing, neither can admit it and therefore their conversations skim around it, which complicates everything.

    or maybe i'm wrong and it has no meaning. great song either way

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song is its about that voice in your head,

    "no one calling, but someone is bound to reply"

    no one calls me, i call them to try and change how i feel, someone must talk to me

    "The road was taken
    The path led on
    The signals given
    The show turned on
    Still receiving
    And still believing
    The time that you take isn’t gone"

    "the signals given" part is im trying to let people know how i feel, but i cant vent my feelings, and no ones listening.

    this song could easily be somewhat about a girl though, thats why he feels this way. she left him. all alone, hence the conversations alone

    but thats what the song means to me

    General CommentSounds like a relationship issue
    "Somthing changing"
    ..From friends to more..
    "The secret is building"
    ..You kinda want tell somone but not sure..
    Almost over and somehow seems a beginning
    ..Could end a friendship but start a relationship..
    Losing focus
    It must be boring
    Looking forward never turns out the wrong way
    ..You always see the future as somthing good..

    Conversations alone
    Complicate us together on our own
    Conversations alone
    So alone
    ..By thinking about it you overthink and make things difficuly by yourself..

    No one calling
    But someone is bound to reply
    ..you want to know what the other is thinking..
    No one out there
    But someone hears every word
    ..Happens to others too...
    I know we’re playing the same game
    Easing the conscience by
    ..both want it to happen but doubt it..

    The road was taken
    The path led on
    Til a new one’s left to clear
    .. it hppend, whats next ?..
    The signal’s given
    The show turned on til emotion cut too near
    ..pretend like it dident happen untill you cant anymore..

    The road was taken
    The path led on
    The signals given
    The show turned on
    Still receiving
    And still believing
    The time that you take isn’t gone

    Keep us from together on our own
    Together on our own

    ...and still we doubt....

    General CommentOk, here's what I've always taken this song to mean, though i could be completely wrong, and looking back, there isn't actually that much to back me up... regardless: I always thought it could be about the way mass media is affecting social interactions. People sit at home, with their cell phones, the internet, XBox live, etc, and FEEL like they're being social, like they're interacting with other humans, when really, there's no one else there. Feel free to rip that apart.

    General CommentI'd say this is about how conversation is an extremely important part to any relationship and I guess how people keep things from each other...
