"3685" as written by and Nicholas Edward Thomas....
My empty promises
Led to our demise
And I could never tell you
How I really feel
And for that
I eternally apologize

I hope you never forget
The tapping at your window
With the harsh cold and the jealousy
Running through my bones
We were both selfish,
But I think I was more

I would like to thank you,
For showing me
A part of myself
That I have never seen
Yeah, we were young and dumb,
But it still was fun
And I guess these things
Just tend to fall apart
And I hope you feel the same

My empty promises
My empty promises
Brought us to an end
I just hurt you
And I never looked back
Now I have no logic to defend

I hope you never forget
The tapping at your window
With the harsh cold and the jealousy
Running through my bones
We were both selfish,
But I think I was more

I would like to thank you,
For showing me
A part of myself
That I have never seen
Yeah, we were young and dumb,
But it still was fun
And I guess these things
Just tend to fall apart

I would like to thank you,
For showing me
A part of the world
That I have never seen
Yeah, I was young and dumb,
But it still was fun
I'm forever indebted to you
I hope you feel the same

You seem like such a big part
Of my life and my heart
But the truth is
I've found something new
And she easily towers over you

You seem like such a big part
Of my life and my heart
But the truth is
I've found something new
And she easily towers over you

    General Commenti can totally agree with this song. i bawl everytime.
    i am dealing with a hurt from leaving a girl who was everything to me.
    she taught me so much of who i was, what i wanted to be.
    she showed me everything and more.
    i left her. it fell apart. and i let it. and than i came back.
    i'm hurting from it and i heard this song. and i fell in love.
    i dedicate it to her. i want to break this song down to what it means to me.

    My empty promises
    led to our demise
    -this right here is so true.
    how lies, or foolishness, or things that should of meant something that didn't, how they break apart things.

    And I could never tell you how I really feel
    and for that I eternally apologize

    I hope you never forget the tapping at your window
    with the harsh cold and the jealousy
    running through my bones
    We were both selfish, but I think I was more
    -the girl i was with, she isn't.. what we'd call a "whore" or whatever we'd like to think a "whore" is becaue they date around. but she does. shes a beautiful person but is just searching and is with emotionally not physically with alot of people. and i'd like to think i was more. she tells me i am a big part of her still. though in august it will be a year.

    I would like to thank you, for showing me
    a part of myself that I have never seen
    Yeah, we were young and dumb, but it still was fun
    And I guess these things just tend to fall apart
    And I hope you feel the same
    -i think alot of us have people who show us so much about ourselves, we want to thank them in every way possible, and i hope she feels the same- that no anger should be felt. just know how imporatant it was.

    My empty promises,
    my empty promises
    brought us to an end
    I just hurt you and I never looked back
    Now I have no logic to defend

    I hope you never forget the tapping at your window
    with the harsh cold and the jealousy
    running through my bones
    We were both selfish, but I think I was more

    I would like to thank you, for showing me
    a part of myself that I have never seen
    Yeah, we were young and dumb, but it still was fun
    And I guess these things just tend to fall apart
    And I hope you feel the same

    I would like to thank you, for showing me
    a part of myself that I have never seen
    Yeah, we were young and dumb, but it still was fun
    I'm forever indebted to you
    I hope you feel the same

    You seem like such a big part
    of my life and my heart
    But the truth is I've found something new
    and she easily towers over you

    You seem like such a big part
    of my life and my heart
    But the truth is I've found something new
    and she easily towers over you
    -this line, when i began getting over her- and i liked someone else (whom i got shot down by because she refues to give the same sex a chance) was my favorite.
    no matter how big a part of you someone is
    you will find better
    its just a long road until then.

    General CommentI really like this song...
    It obviously is talking about looking back on a relationship and seeing the good and bad things about it. And also recognizing that that person taught them many things about love and such. Then it goes on to talk about the new relationship and how in comparison it is much better. Kind of bittersweet if you ask me...

    General CommentPossibly the name is referring to a date. I don't really know though.

    General CommentI like it a lot... I totally get what he means at the end... COMPLETELY. Basically, he had what he thought was a wonderful relationship with this girl. Eventually they broke up and he felt as though I guess, he finally realized the "routine" he was living with the original girl (she was taking advantage of his kindness and willingness to learn) and how amazing his new relationship is. He's resentful so he has the right to tell her off. Voila... my interpretation.
