I stood here on this same old ground one year ago
And now standing here at the edge of the woods, I'm all alone
Don't tell me I'm your shooting star
Cause you're not here and the distance is too far
I've wasted time here
I searched the station but by estimation you left hours ago
Well, don't come home, cause

Falling once, it showed me the place where the sidewalk cracks
And now I look before I leap
And calling out my name isn't gonna bring me back
Sometimes just being blind for awhile will teach you to see

The sky's the limit
It's funny how I flew the day you left
You say you made that big mistake again
I've got no sympathy for that
Well, soon I'll find my shooting star
So you can show your chances to the door
You've wasted my time
My eyes are straightforward and you don't have me cornered anymore
No, no, cause

Falling once, it showed me the place where the sidewalk cracks
And now I look before I leap
And calling out my name isn't gonna bring me back
Sometimes just being blind for awhile will teach you to see

Falling for you one time
And crawling on a thin line
Was worth it all the while
All the while - All the while - All the while - All the while...

Falling once, it showed me the place where the sidewalk cracks
And now I look before I leap - And calling out my name isn't gonna bring me back
Sometimes just being blind for awhile will teach you to see
Sometimes just being blind for awhile will teach you to see

    General Commentthis girl is a lyrical genius. once in a while, somebody writes a song that you hear, and wonder how in the hell they got your thoughts out of your head & turned them into a great song.

    General CommentWhenever I'm walking with my mp3 player on I want to bust out dancing to this song, it's so fun! I'm thinking it's another break-up song. My favorite part is the "All the while" line!

    Song MeaningSo I've had this song for a while but the meaning just really hit home with me today. It's definitely about falling for a guy who wasn't willing to catch you and realizing that you're the one who's got to pick yourself off of the ground in order to make things change. It's also about not going back to the way things were just because of old hopes or old comfort. Sometimes it makes you a little gunshy about starting a new relationship, but at least you've got your eyes open going in so you don't repeat a negative history. It's really good advice and a wonderful song.
