"Sirens" as written by and Arto/scherer Lindsay....
Sirens are calling for someone they're on there way
Which house is it gonna be

The wailing and crying comes closer still
Its on our street today

A roll of the dice fate comes a knocking
And takes one more away

For all of thier careful planning
Never thought it could end this way

(chorus)
I just want to say I love you
And make sure you feel it everyday
'Cause if today had been my last chance
It's just something I wanted to say

But this is not my time to go
Grace has brought us another day
But if tomarrow were to bring my turn
What would I leave unsaid?
What would I leave undone?
What would I leave behind?

(chorus)
x2

    General CommentThis song has an interesting story for me. I stumbled upon it the day I said goodbye to my boyfriend for 3 months during the summer, and it really says what I wanted to get across to him. It means a lot to me, because of coincidence, how I'm feeling, and how badly I can't wait to see him.

    This song puts into perspective how we should feel towards our lovers, family, and friends. Think about it; who have you not spoken to that you need to and who do you need to say 'I love you' to?

    Song MeaningThis song is not about The Oddesey. If it helps you communicate with your ex-boyfriend, wonderful. Thats one of those things where you take the meaning however you would like. BUT this song is about how we all die. And furthermore, that we could die at anytime, when we least expect it. Therefor, we should not take anything for granted. Tell your loved ones, that you love them, you may not get another chance. What will you leave unsaid? undone? behind? Life is short, if you die today, will you be happy with these questions? It just wrote to make people not take the gift of life for granted.

    Song MeaningI remember a story i read in High school i think it was the Odyssey, and if anyone else has read it, they were out on a ship in the ocean and there were these women, kind of like goddesses, and they called them SIRENS... and these sirens were dangerous because they sang or hummed these certain songs and it drew the men in and they all the sudden died( not sure ho accurate i am on the story that was a long time ago). So if you think about it in the song its like the guy is saying i love you and goodbye because the sirens are calling him in... also "grace has brought us another day" is like him saying oh thank god, you know, i wasn't tempted today... kind of like cheating. i dunno.. just a thought.
