    General CommentThis seems like a song about distance relationships to me. "We were so close" (emotionally) "but so far away" (physically). After time passed, it took its toll on him, and he basically tells her to put up or shut up, because he can't "wait all [his] life on a street of broken dreams". He obviously feels like he could have been with her forever and wonders if she feels the same way, by asking "I still wonder if you remember the night- it could have been you".
