All these miles, haunting questions linger in my mind
And all the while, making bad decisions out of line
Still I've tried, to let go of the danger in my life
It's alright, when that's the only thing I've left behind
And there's still time...

Wait for me
There's so much more of life for us to see
You must believe,
It's not because of you I've had to leave
Wait for me
I only hope that you'll remember me

At this time, I'm counting all the reasons I should stay
Bottom line, I'm missing all the things I gave away
I remind, and see your faces every single day
Still I'm blind, I wish that there was something I could say
To make things right...

Wait for me
There's so much more of life for us to see
You must believe,
It's not because of you I've had to leave
Wait for me
I only hope that you'll remember me

Just hold on a little bit longer
Thoughts and memories will be enough
My need for you is only growing stronger
I know you don't understand it much
But it doesn't mean I have to care about you any less
It doesn't have a thing to do with that
There's still so many questions that are gonna' be addressed
I'm sorry that it had to be like this
But there's still time to make things right

Wait for me
There's so much more of life for us to see
You must believe,
It's not because of you I've had to leave
Wait for me
I only hope that you'll remember me

Wait for me

    General CommentI agree with the marine, this song is just plain bad ass! To me, however, it reminds me of the way I've treated my fiancee. It says that he loves his girl, and he knows he's screwed up a lot, but he wants her to wait for him to grow up and show her what she really means to him. Too close to home...

    General Commentthis song is just awesome. reminds me of soldiers going off to war and telling their loved ones goodbye. i think they should make a video out of this and have this guy getting drafted into the army and leaving his family but then returns at the end. i think it would mean alot to alot of people.

    General CommentI think that the song goes a lot deeper than what the rest of ya'll are hearing. Honesstly i beleive that the song is from his mother and father to him. They are saying sorry forl eaving him in the ways that they did. And the he is saying that it is okay and he is goin to try to be better than that to his own child(children). And that is my opinion.

    General CommentThis song goes perfectly with what a friend of mine went through. When he left for the Air Force, he was leaving behind his girlfriend of five years, they had been through a lot of drama. . She heard this song jusrt after he left and couldnt stop crying. She eventually moved on base with him and they are married now. So it kind of turned out ok.

    General CommentA song is not necessarily intended to have a direct meaning, it may mean something direct to the artist, but its not wrong to say what it reminds you of, what it means to you etc., a lot of flaws songs are written in almost full sentences so line by line interpretation is easy, but I think the song as a whole is left up to the listener to decide
