Doesn't it make you nervous, at least you could have tried
And if it doesn't disturb us, couldn't we just sit by
And make a pact to ignore it, all of our secret needs
Becoming connected further, giving a life to feed on

You let them decide
The course of my life
And you just stood by
You threw me aside

Isn't it overwhelming, living a lie inside
Causing so many problems, hoping to just get by
When will it all be over, what would I have you say
But you won't have to trouble yourself for me that way

You let them decide
The course of my life
And you just stood by
You let them decide

Didn't mean to complicate tomorrow
Didn't have to make you feel that way
Didn't come to irritate your morals
But then you pushed me far away
Didn't mean to complicate tomorrow
Didn't have to make you feel that way
Didn't come to irritate your morals
Why did you push me far away
I just can't see why you neglected to try
To move on with our lives
When we shared the goodbye

You let them decide
The course of my life
We shared the goodbye
And you threw me aside

You'll never make that choice again
No not again
Will you affect my life again

    General CommentI think it is more talking about a relationship. He is singing to a girl who let others decide that he wasn't right for her when she believed he was. She threw him aside because of what others believed and not what she did.

    General Commentbasically saying to his father that he let him go down the wrong path, by neglecting him as a child(you threw me aside) and how his father put the blame of every thing on him, his mothers suicide and such, my one friend can relate... his brother comitted suicide... his father told him it was his fault, so alls i rememeber is him crying... ive never seen him cry ever... this song made me think about that, and how could someone be so cowardly and tell someone like him this... made his life a living mess, (You'll never make that choice again No not again Will you affect my life again) this is him stanging up and taking his life into his own hands and showing he is a real man.

    General CommentI agree with TripleFang, but that's not to say that Bendova0524's meaning is incorrect, I'm just going on what I felt when I first heard the song. It reminded me of me and my ex and how she always listened to what people were saying about our relationship rather than going with what she felt.
    "I just can't see why you neglected to try
    To move on with our lives
    When we shared the goodbye

    You let them decide
    The course of my life
    We shared the goodbye
    And you threw me aside

    You'll never make that choice again
    No not again
    Will you affect my life again"

    She never tried to hear her own feelings. When it was time to say goodbye, it ruined my life, not hers..because it was her choice. Threw me aside, won't ever be able to make decisions about my life and won't ever affect my life again.

    My InterpretationMusic means something different to every one.. That's how people relate to the music.. It's all about how a song touches ones heart and they perceive it as ther own... If its how your heart feels then your never wrong... To me it painfully reminds me of losing my son to CPS... When I listen to it ,he's screaming this song to me and my mother and my ex.. He's sayn to me that I let them decide the course of our life's.. But I never stood by or threw him aside. But that's what it felt like to him.. Although my mother and my ex try to ignore it ,at least we all could of tryd harder and not gave him up.. He crys to us , you threw me aside..Of cours it disturbes us. The whole time my son wondering when will it all be over.. And when he's older what will he have us say.. But for now we won't have trouble our self for him in that way.. But it not his fault.. He didn't mean to complicate. Tomarow.. Or makes feel that way.. He didn't come to irritate our morals.. But he's cryn the words.. He just can't see why... You neglected to try ,OH.. To move on with our lives.. When we shared the good by...then I see his face angry ... You'll never make that choice again no not again will you affect my life again.. OH my God... I love you son... I love you JAIDYN CAMERON HEARN.. All ways... Your father Cameron Hearn...
