And the sound of rain is killing me
It's killing me and tonight I'll fall asleep
to know I wont be here tomorrow
And my fear of waking up is haunting me tonight
I'll die tomorrow
die tomorrow
and certainty will kill me once again
I'll die tomorrow
die tomorrow
and certainty will kill me once again
I was hoping things had a chance
and wonders would make it past
Yeah things would be so perfect
can it be I’ve seen so many things?
I've seen you touch the sky
and it’s more than unbelieveable
unbelievable
I'll die tomorrow
die tomorrow
and certainty will kill me once again
Well thirty went september and
it’s too late to run back
I was hoping things might of had the chance
Yeah thirty went September and it’s too late to run back
I was hoping things might have had the chance

    General CommentIt seems like another break-up song.

    "I was hoping things might have had the chance"

    He's saying that he knows that they're going to or already have broken up, and the certainty that it's final will kill him...only my opinion though *shrug*

    My InterpretationI don't think it's the certainty that things will end is what "kills" him.

    To me it's more like, he can't settle. So he just keeps going from place to place, and each time he's a complete new person to the world.

    I think that this is where he realizes is life has become "certain". He's got a girlfriend (fiancee maybe?), a job, friends and everything there. He's got a solid life, a place where he can spend the rest of his life, if he'd want to, and where he WILL spend the rest of his life, if things don't change. And it's that certainty that "kills" him.
    And, it's not like he knew that he would leave the town, when he first got there. He really was determined to make it his home. He is with every place he lives in, but it never really works out, no matter how hard he tries.
    "I'll die tomorrow", means that he leaves this town and all the faces behind, and because he will never see them again, he'll be dead in a way.
    "My fear of waking up is haunting me tonight", when you live like him, you never really know what to expect of the next place you'll be. Even though he doesn't want to stay there, he's also scared of what's waiting for him; scared that the life he will lead is worse than the life he's leading now.


    That's the first part of the song,

    then you have the second part.

    It sounds like he's regretting his choices. He's recalling all the good memories, and how he hoped things would have worked out with the you-person, the one he's left in the first part of the song. But it didn't, 'cause he got scared once again, and couldn't stay. But he knows that he can't come back to her.


    That's how I interpret it, anyway.
