"Disengage" as written by and Jarrod Gorbel....
So you regret the last five years of your life with me
Don't you think that I feel the same way too?
Don't you think that I feel the same way too?

Disengage your eyes
At least one moment in time
And soon you will know
Trace the lines on my face
Until you are underneath
It all starts real slow
Walking sleepless through these streets
I don't understand a thing you mean
This relationship is based on what trails across the CD case
And it will all soon come to an end

But if you don't pick up the phone, you will regret it
I've said it before, but this time I mean it

You, you keep telling me that you regret
All the things that we've done
I've tortured you, that I'm willing to admit
Guilt-ridden for those years
Trying to forget, from now on
From now on

I met her at a show
Her dress was stained and her eyes had a glow
There were no lines to trace on her face
But I will make my way underneath
I'll just start real slow

    General CommentI think the woman he is with was not happy with their relationship and she always tells him, which would bring down his self-esteem, and then they break up and he meets this other woman, and he is so sure that they too will end up like that.

    General CommentI think that belleautumn is on the right track. But I don't think he's lost hope for the next girl, I think he actually really adores her, and is trying to make sure what happened with his previous relationship doesn't happen with her.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about a long term relationship gone wrong. There are mixed feelings, narrator obviously still has feelings for her and doesnt want the relationship to end, even though it probably should. To me "This relationship is based on what trails across the CD case" refers more to him being in a band and what that entails (taveling, roadies etc) as oppose to a drug reference.

    Also, lyrics are incomplete. That irks me. Anyone else?
