I must say,
It's a nice day,
When the leaves start to turn, there is so much to learn from the freeway,
You're my friend,
For the weekend,
When the spring comes around, you can show me the town that you live in,

And tonight I walk through an empty street,
With my shadow stretching in front of me,
When my lonely thoughts meet my lonely feet,
And the cold reminds me that I've chosen this life,

I must say,
It's a nice day,
With the flowers in bloom, there is so much to view from the freeway,
And we're friends,
For the weekend,
And when the fall comes around, you can show me the town that you live in,

And tonight I walk through an empty street,
With my shadow stretching in front of me,
When my lonely thoughts meet my lonely feet,
And the cold reminds me that I've chosen this life,

So hang up the phone cause you're probably better alone,
So hang up the phone cause you're probably better alone,
So hang up the phone cause you're probably better alone,

And tonight I walk through an empty street,
With my shadow stretching in front of me,
When my lonely thoughts meet my lonely feet,
And the cold reminds me that I've,

And tonight I walk through an empty street,
With my shadow stretching in front of me,
When my lonely thoughts meet my lonely feet,
And the cold reminds me that I've chosen this life,

    General CommentThis is a really great song. I'm surprised there are only a couple of comments.. I was thinking it was one of their best songs.

    General Commentcould quite possibly be their best song.

    "And tonight I walk through an empty street,
    With my shadow stretching in front of me,
    When my lonely thoughts meet my lonely feet,
    And the cold reminds me that I've chosen this life"

    Love that lyric, describes my life as a hockey player

    General CommentOk so I don't know if this is right...at all. But to me it's about a long distance relationship and the couple only gets to see eachother twice a year, in fall and in spring. The only problem with long distance relationships is that you get very lonely the qoute "So hang up the phone cause you're probably better alone" suggests that he's debating wether they should break up or not because he's assumeing that she's feeling as lonely as he is. He knows that it isn't anyones fault he's feeling this lonely except his because he could've broken up with the girl suggested in the qoute "And the cold reminds me that I've chosen this life".
    Hope that made sense...

    it seems to me that it was just a one night stand and he is hoping for something more since it says "youre my friends for the weekend when the spring comes around yo can show me the town that you live in."
