"Anniversary" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Perry Bamonte and Jason Toop Cooper....
A year ago today we stood
Above this same awakening world
I held you

You never wanted me to know
Another year ago today
Before this same awakening world
I held you

I never meant to let you go
There was a moment
There always is
When time stood still
And always was this

One endless moment
You turn in pain
And I always let you go
Over and over again

A year ago tonight we lay
Below this same remembering sky
I kissed you

You never wanted me to know
Another year ago tonight
Behind this same remembering sky
I kissed you

I never meant to let you go
Another moment
There always is
As time stands still
And always is this

One endless moment
You tell me all
And I hold you and I kiss you
And I never let you go
I never let you go

    General CommentI agree, this is probably the best song on the album. My favorite part is when the music gets really quiet and the chorus starts.

    General CommentLove this song. Just everything about it is great. I agree with placebist. The sad mood is awesome.

    The song should be pretty self-explanatory. =/.

    General CommentOne of the most beautiful songs on the album.
    If I listen to a song enough I start to imagine a story, so this is my interpretation of it.

    I think this song is about a boy and a girl who loved each other, but the girl had some emotional problems that she didn't want him to know about, preventing her from getting too close to him. As a result, the boy is confused and breaks up with her. On this day it would have been their one year anniversary and he realizes he never meant to let her go. If both of them had a chance to go back to that one moment where they were both in love, she would have told him everything, and he would have never let her go.
    Sorry if I messed up the whole self explanatory part. :-)
