In a dream that I cant seem to shake she is standing alone.
By the fence I see tears in her eyes,
why she cries, I just dont know.

What a mess that I make of my days.
Then theres you, you're a mess to be made.
The dream starts to fade away..

So youre leaving for months at a time,
I'll help you out the door.
Once your gone I'll just stare out the window.
Please could you please come back home.

What a mess that I make of my days,
trying to save myself, save myself.
Then theres you, your a mess to be made.
a canvas only paint could change.

And a voice on the other end of the phone,
says, "why dont you write a song about it."
Well here it goes.
I was raised on something that you'll never know.
Id' hate this place if it werent for the waves,
if it werent for the fact that you love it. Where they measure a man on the money he spends,
well my love is not a bank statement.

What a mess that i make of my days,
trying to save myself, save myself.
Then theres you, you're a mess to be made,
a mess to be made, a mess to be made,
and the dream starts to fade away.

    General Commenti think its "my heart..." but i always felt this song is about a couple who has little feudes while they are together, and need to be apart(so your leaving for months at a time, i'll help you out the door) but when they have to be apart they miss eachother very much (once your gone i just stare out the window, please wont you please come back home), and their relationship is kindof a mess, but its holding together so far. actually i guess its written from one persons point of view so maybe only one of them is doing the pining (check spelling) but either way thats what it means to me. i like the fact that its in 3/4 time too...their arent enough songs like that today...lots of 6/8 but no 3/4 really.
