(I Am The Atomic Powered Robot
Please Give My Best Wishes To Everybody)

"Never..."

Your words hit harder than expected
I couldnt sleep because my dreams were interrupted
By the bittersweet fragrance of our childhood dreams
Filling my heart but its a world torn apart
We thought we had what no one could ever have
(invincibility)
But a distance between you and I killed us
(gradually)
A spoonful of your sarcasm helps the pain go down
But if you wanna mend my heart for a while it'll take a
Phone call from your side of town

Now were left with broken hearts and a handful of memories
And who I am now reflects you somehow
Cause you're so apart of me
It's not like were over is it?
It's not like we'll never be together
I hate it, the way that you say "never"

The snow falls here
You can see the stars where you are searching for the Inspiration
That we once found in every moment we shared
All our deepest dreams
On a train of thought that took us to the place of Common ground
But the stage was only set for a disappointment

Now were left with broken hearts and a handful of memories
And who I am now reflects you somehow
Cause you're so apart of me
It's not like were over is it?
It's not like we'll never be together
I hate it, the way that you say "never"

And now were left here
Two seperate paths
You'll take yours and I'll take mine
We're left with broken hearts
Growing older and growing apart

    I don't think it's about a breakup. I think it's about his best friend and him are drifting apart.

    General Commenti agree with die_ambrosia.
    but this song could still be about a breakup or a best friend, or anything like that. just a friendship/relationship that's drifting apart.

    "It's not like were over is it?
    It's not like we'll never be together"
    this line confuses me a little because if it was about a breakup, and he says "it's not like we'll never be together?" then doesn't that mean that they were never together?

    so i personally think this is about a relationship that ALMOST happened, but didn't because they just starting going their separate ways before they could be together.

    General CommentSelf explainable, some kind of relationship is drifting. Maybe an off and on girlfriend. All I know is this song is great
