Wasted time
I can not say that I was ready for this
But when worlds collide
And all that I have
Is all that i want
The words seem to flow
And the thoughts they keep running
And all that I have is yours
All that i am is yours

Painted skies
I've seen so many that cannot compare
To your ocean eyes
The pictures you took
That cover your room
And it was just like the sun
But more like the moon
A light that can reach it all
So now im branded for taking the fall

So when you say forever
Can't you see you've already captured me?

    General CommentADimeADexter, I've read three Mae songs in which you've posted the lyrics and all three have had major alterations to the correct lines. Why were you so rushed to post these??

    Anyway, on line 17 ADimeADexter wrote:

    "A light that cant reach at all"

    The correct line is:

    "A light that CAN reach IT all"

    As you can see when you change "can't" to "can" and "at" to "it" it completely changes up the meaning to the line.

    btw "skys" is spelled "skies"

    Does the long ending to this song remind anyone else of "Skyline Drive" from their "Destination: Beautiful" release? ...and it was pure genius at the end for Mae to add in the last two lines:

    "So when you say forever
    Can't you see you've already captured me?"

    ...just when you thought they were done singing.

    General CommentThis song is about memories and how they guide people to whatever destination they're seeking.
    "The pictures you took
    That cover your room
    And it was just like the sun
    But more like the moon"
    The pictures are the memories that guide people just like how the Sun and the Moon guide everything.
    Memories are "all we have"

    General CommentIt's funny, all of Mae's slow stuff, on first listen, I say, "This sucks." But, after a second listen of really contemplating these songs, they become my favorites; i.e., Skyline Drive, The Ocean, Giving It Away (kinda). I'm still trying to figure out what his analogies means for the sun and the moon. The moon reflects the original light from the sun. If this is a song about God, maybe he's saying that he hasn't yet seen God, just his reflections in the word, in Jesus. Or, if it's not about God, he could just mean that the pictures are just reflections, or something. Awesome song.

    General CommentThis song, placed at the end of the "journey", leads me to believe the girl the character has been courting all this time, has a baby with, and maybe eventually marries has died. He regrets any wasted time while they were together while he admits to being caught off guard by her sudden departure. It is a sweet song of love and commitment... and happy memories of life spent together.

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs i've ever heard. Clearly a love song. *sigh* i want a guy in a band to write a song about meee! This song reminds me of "Constantine" by Something Corporate:)
