"Collapsed" as written by and Alyson Michalka....
You were the one
That I couldn't find
Hidden away
In the ups of my mind

Why did I let you go
You're to good to be true
I messed it up and now I don't know what to do
We ran in circles and wasted time
From right to wrong
From right to wrong

If I knew that you were mine
I wouldn't have wasted time
I wish I could erase the past
Now its all collapsed
In my lap

I over thought
So I locked up my heart yeah
There you stood
You're blue eyes hidden underneath your hurt

Why did I let you go
You're to good to be true
I messed it up and now I don't know what to do
We ran in circles and wasted time
From right to wrong
From right to wrong

If I knew that you were mine
I wouldn't have wasted time
I wish I could erase the past
Now its all collapsed
In my lap

My mind is blank just like a deep sleep
With a meeting with a guy with the same blue eyes
And the same name with a colored shoe
I can't believe they have the same hat with my old mate
Then I will make another mistake
And think that he's just another fake

Wish I could erase the past
Wish I could bring you back

If I knew that you were mine
I wouldn't have wasted time
I wish I could erase the past
Now its all collapsed
In my lap

If I knew that you were mine
I wouldn't have wasted time
I wish I could erase the past
Now its all collapsed
In my lap

    General CommentI really like it! This song means that there was a girl who had this friend as a boy, and he liked her. But the girl never noticed and one day felt the same but it was too late. Now everthing has "collapsed."

    General CommentOk, from my mind is blank to I think that hes just another fake, does anyone really know that part besides Aly & AJ themselves. I have seen so many different versions to that part. So of course I listened to it myself and it sounded like mostly all of them. Maybe someone should email them about that???

    General Comment"My mind is blank just like a clean slate.
    Will I meet another guy with the same blue eyes?
    And the same name with the converse shoes I gave?
    Will he have the same laugh? Wear my home-made hat?
    I'll make another mistake,
    and think he's just another fake."

    That's the correct lyrics for that part.

    General CommentBasically, this girl liked a boy but was too afraid to admit to him. She was wasting time just sitting around and not doing anything about her feelings for him, afraid to get rejected or lose their friendship they already had. However, little did she know that he liked her as well, and he told her this but it was probably too late... maybe he got a girlfriend or moved on from her or something, and now everything has been thrown back at her and it's "collapsed in her lap"... the friendship isn't working out now, it has collapsed and she feels like it's because of her. She wonders if she will ever find someone similar to him, but she realizes once she finds someone that is kind of like him that he is a fake... he isn't the real deal... he isn't the guy.

    My InterpretationAlso, now that I'm relistening, I think this song could also be about a girl who thinks that a guy is cheating on her, so she "locks up her heart" and tries to move on. However, she realizes he wasn't cheating or really was there for her for the right reasons and she realizes he wasn't a fake all along... but now it's too late, he's already mad at her for not trusting him. If she knew that he was hers all along, this never would've happened, and now their relationship is ruined.
    ("Bet I'll make another mistake and think he's just another fake") This is the line that gives me that idea. She'll meet another guy that's just like him but she might make the same mistake as this time and think he's not here for the right reasons/cheating/ a fake. Also she might have trust issues but he really was the good guy... she just wishes she knew that sooner.
