"Find My Way Back" as written by and Michelle Branch....
I used to get away with so much
Now I can´t get away
I even thought that it was simple
To say the things I wanted to say

And you told me
Everything I wanted to hear
And you sold me
Now I don´t know how I should feel
I should know me
And baby, you would think I knew better

[Chorus]
I´m finding my way back to you
And everything I used to be
And waiting is all that I can do
Until you find your way back to me

What if I said what I was thinking?
What if that says too much?
When everybody´s got a reason
I feel like giving up

And you told me
Everything I wanted to hear
And you sold me
Now I don´t know how I should feel
I should know me
And baby, you would think I knew better

[Chorus]

Until you find your way back to me
I used to get away with so much

[Chorus]

    General CommentThe chorus is:
    "I'm finding my way back to you,
    And everything we used to be.
    And waiting is all that I can do,
    Until you find your way back to me."

    Just a minor change.

    Anyways, this song, like all the others on hotel paper, remind me of my ex boyfriend. This was my song for him right after we broke up the first time. All of it makes sence for me:

    "I used to get away with so much, now I cant get away"
    -Being the youngest of 6, I used to get away with EVERYTHING, but now I just make one little mistake, and he breaks up with me, not even a mistake, a misunderstanding more, and I cant get away with it.

    "I even thought that it was simple, to say the things I wanted to say."
    -I thought I could tell him everything I couldnt tell most other people, but I guess I couldnt. And I thought it would be simple to tell him how I felt, but it wasnt.

    "And you told me, everything I wanted to hear, and you sold me, now I dont know how I should feel, I should know me, and baby you would think I knew better."
    -Technically he told me everything I wanted to hear like how much he liked me and wants us to be together, but then soon after he breaks up with me and then I just didnt know if I should have believed it or not and I should feel about him, but I should know, bcuz its me, and I should know myself.

    "I'm finding my way back to you, and everything we used to be, And waiting is all that I can do, Until you find your way back to me."
    -I was gonna find my way back to him by waiting till he found his way back to me. So in other words, I figured me and him would get back together, but he had to come to me, and thats how I found my way back to him.

    "What if I said what I was thinking, What if that says too much?"
    -I wanted to tell him everything I was thinking, but I thought it just might make things worse. I seem to hide a lot of myself from people, and I guess I shouldnt, but its soo hard to trust people.

    "When everybodys got a reason, I feel like giving up."
    -I felt like I needed a reason to believe that we were gonna get back together, and I just didnt have it, so I didnt know if I should have given up on him.

    And yeah, thats like the whole song. Its such a good song. I love Michelle Branch so much, her songs are soo great.

    General CommentWhat if I said what I was thinking
    What if that says too much

    That is my fave line in the song. My exboyfriend is exactly this way. Well, I mean I feel this way about him. Every time I tell him how I feel, if he does or says something to hurt me, and I tell him, just by the look in his eyes or the tone of his voice, I know that I have said too much and pushed him away.

    General CommentThis song is about realizing you're still in love with someone you used to love, and you're trying to go back to how you were when you were with them in an attempt to get them back...I guess? Or just making yourself feel like you did when you were with them, but "waiting is all I can do until you find your way back to me"

    General CommentIs it just me or do all the songs on Hotel Paper inspire you to just drive away? These songs are perfect road trip songs. Love it, especially this song.
