"How?" as written by and Damon Michael Gough....
1, 2, 3, 4

What if there is nothing left for us after all this
I don't care, I don't mind
Just as long as we find some time

Just come back, I'll stay out of the way
And be all the things you need
Another mouth to feed

How can I be sure again, once more
How can I find time to be with you again

How can I give you the answers you need
When all I possess is a melody, yeah
How can I take up the air that you breathe
When all I possess is a melody

How can I be sure again, once more

I don't care, I don't mind
Just as long as we find some time

When you come back I'll go out of my way
To be all the things you need
Another mouth to feed

How can I give you the answers you need
When all I possess is a melody, yeah
How can I take up the air that you breathe
When all I possess is a melody

How can I find time to be with you again?

When you come back I'll go out of my way
To be all the things you need
Another mouth to feed

    General CommentThis song has special meaning to me, and I think it's beautiful. To me, it's a guy singing about a relationship with a girl that he knows might not last or develop for various reasons. Regardless, he wants to spend as much time as he can with this girl because he cares about her that much.

    I think it's absolutely beautiful; I find it quite touching.

    General CommentPersonally, I agree with the previous post that this emphasizes the here and now, but I don't think that what he forsees is an end to the relationship, but rather an end to life, or everything. In any case, the part that touches me the most is that he just wants to stay "out of the way" of anything and everything that might keep him from that 'here and now happiness', because that's all he wants. He's also desperately searching for time but also coming to realize that embracing the moment is not about looking for more time in the future. It's most likely intentionally contradictory to express how we all feel about these things.
