"Left Behind" as written by and Matthew Nicholas/hales Hales....
Open the curtain,
Let some light in,
I feel so gray,
The world got smashed to pieces,
And put back together
The wrong way.

Why you leaving me now?
There must be some doubt in your mind,
Can't you open your heart?
Don't want to be left behind.

Open the window,
Let some air in,
I feel so old
There where we were happy,
Long ago
Yesterday

Why you leaving me now?
There must be some doubt in your mind,
Can't you open your heart?
Don't want to be left behind.

You open your mouth and I know
What you're going to say.

Open the window,
Let some air in,
I feel so gray.

Why you leaving me now?
There must be some doubt in your mind,
Can't you open your heart?
Don't want to be left behind.

You open your mouth and I know
What you're going to say

    General Commenti love this song. the obvious meaning is that he doesn't want to be left and forgotten about. he can see the relationship is ending and he doesn't want it to.

    "You open your mouth and I know
    what you're going to say."

    -he knows she is leaving.

    General Commenttotally agree with allyouneediscake because he sees the end coming..i can relate to that cuz ive been in that situation and when i heard this song it felt like it telling my story

    Why you leaving me now?
    There must be some doubt in your mind,
    Can't you open your heart?
    Don't want to be left behind.


    he can see her moving away from him and hes asking her to look deep inside of her to really see that she loves him

    General Commenthow awesome is this song couple with brighter than sunshine?? its like two parts to a story.

    like jrbp3 it sums up perfectly how i felt in my last relationship.
    Its awesome how music can do that it can carry an emotion, feeling, time in your life back to you through words and music.

    General CommentHas anyone else heard this song in the new Chrysler commercials? Kinda weird, since the feeling of the song and the feeling of the commercial don't really match, but whatever...

    General CommentYES! musicnerd! I was so going to say that...exactly! The intro to the song is so fast and exciting...I wonder what percentage of people who have seen those commercials (5% maybe?! hehe) know that it's a fairly calm Aqualung song! Pretty cool, though.

    I love this song..he sounds fairly happy, but his not wanting to be left behind isn't obviously. I can totally relate to this song, wondering if that someone could leave any minute...and asking them to stay.

    General CommentI saw the song being played for a car commercial and I was wondering if this was Aqualung. Also, the start of the song sounds sort of like Clocks by Coldplay.
