"Rollin Back" as written by and Jim James....
Just in the nick of time you got me...
While I was sittin here
Time I don't think I waste it,
It just seems to disappear
Sippin' the wine you got me,
While eyes were rollin' back
Long hours and hard hard things
Just bring heart attacks
Oh oh oh you had me,
Wrapped up in your mystery...
When the light vanished from on high
Oh, I'll never say I knew you,
But my heart can't wait
To meet you on the other side

When I think about the story
One thing seems pretty clear
The warm things you left behind
They still want you here
But only in time you find...
That all things come back around
And just like the frown,
We'll turn them upside down
Oh oh oh you had me
Wrapped up in your mystery...
When the light vanished from on high
Oh, I'll never say I knew you
But my heart can't wait
To meet you on the other side.

    General CommentI love this song too, surprised there's not more comments.
    I think it's more of a person that they never got really close to, but they always felt a connection with/were intrigued by them.

    "my heart can't wait to meet you on the other side" -- so beautiful. almost like he's accepting that they will never be together here, but there's still a love. or something like that. really sad and lovely, maybe it's about someone who died? my opinion anyways.

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship that never reached it's full potential, and now that things have ended depression ensues. Even though he's given up he can't help but hold out hope that eventually things will turn out as he hopes.

    I can SO relate to this song, in fact, when I was composing that last sentence I typed "Even though he's given up I can't help but hold out hope..." Haha, I'm pathetic, and life sucks sometimes...

    General CommentThis song is a personal favorite from this band.
    As for the lyrics they are most likley about a person from a past relationship.
