"Blind" as written by and Jason Wade....
I was young but I wasn't naive
I watched helpless as he turned around to leave
And still I have the pain I have to carry
A past so deep that even you could not bury if you tried

After all this time
I never thought we'd be here
Never thought we'd be here
When my love for you was blind
But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you'll ever know
A part of me died when I let you go

I would fall asleep
Only in hopes of dreaming
That everything would be like is was before
But nights like this it seems are slowly fleeting
They disappear as reality is crashing to the floor

After all this time
I never thought we'd be here
Never thought we'd be here
When my love for you was blind
But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you'll ever know
A part of me died when I let you go

After all this time
Would you ever want to leave it
Maybe you could not believe it
That my love for you was blind
But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you will ever know
A part of me died when I let you go
And I loved you more than you'll ever know
A part of me dies when I let you go

    General CommentI think that this song is about Jason's father. Part of it seems to be that he blames himself for his father leaving; for example, when he say "but I couldn't make you see it" - he seems to think that his father left because he didn't show enough love towards him.

    As for a general interpretation, this is how you might feel if someone you cared about deeply left you.

    General CommentI've heard too many times that it's about his dad, and i'm wouldn't be surprised if it was true. but the real beauty of this song is that it can be applied to any relationship that has failed or ended.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song off the new CD...it's just amazing. I would assume this is going to be the second single.

    As for it's meaning...

    The first verse really sounds like he's talking about his father walking out on him early in his life. Now (many years later) he's in a relationship with a woman, but can't get close with her. He's reminded of the past when his father walked out on him and fears this girl will walk out on him just like his father. All this fear he has puts a strain on the relationship until they eventually break up.

    ...Or, it's just all about his father (which is the more likely scenario...but the last line in the chorus kind of makes me think this song is partly about a woman.)

    Then again, I've never been all that good at deciphering meanings...so I could be waay off. Either way, it's an amazing song.
