"june gloom" as written by and Elizabeth Anne Berg....
Sunsets lost in
Skies of hazy greys
June gloom sets in
Puts me in a daze
Nothing changes
All we do is wait
Our heads hanging
Shaking in dismay
'Cause everyone's afraid

Looks like the end of days
But it takes so much more
For anyone to say
We need another way
But if we wanted one
We'd do it just the same

Winter's coming
Still we're soaked in sun
Summer somehow
Split us one by one
Days are darker
Than they've ever been
But who could tell when
Summer never ends
(We've capsized in our end)

Looks like the end of days
But it takes so much more
For anyone to say
We need another way
But if we wanted one
We'd do it just the same

Words don't change a thing
Sun disguises darkness
Wish that I could save you
Wish that I could stop this

Looks like the end of days
But it takes so much more
For anyone to say
We need another way
But if we wanted one
We'd do it just the same

    General CommentI feel this sing is about a group of friends or people. I think the narrarator is pointing out a problem or a way of doing things that is know by the group to be inefficient or not right but they all keep doing it because no one is brave enought to say anything.

    "nothing changes
    all we do is wait
    our heads hanging
    shaking in dismay
    cuz everyone's afraid"

    I think they just reinforce this n the chorus by saying

    "we need another way"

    But is alos adding that something really horrible would have to happen to get anyone to speak up.

    "looks like the end of days
    but it takes so much more
    for anyone to say
    we need another way
    but if we wanted one
    we'd do it just the same"

    and that if they found another way they would end up changing back to their old ways.

    The second verse is a little more challenging but I think it's saying that even though this darkness is coming everyone is

    "soaked in sun"

    and pretending it's alright.

    Twoards the end I think the narrorator is beginning to get annoyed with all this and is starting to speak up a bit but needs others to follow it through.

    "words don't change a thing"

    and she wishes she could stop this all.

    "wish that i couls save you
    wish that i could stop this"

    and in the end I think she just bends her head and shuts up and decides to let the rest to find out for themsleves, even though she may or may not go down with them.

    I dont know. That's my take.

    General CommentI watched the like play at the download festival a couple of weeks ago. They rocked. :D This song is kind of the situation I'm in right now. I graduated from high school this summer and my friends all started leaving 'one by one.' We still keep in touch, but already I can feel everyone drifting apart. And we do 'want another way,' but that's life for you. =/

    General CommentI love this song, the contrast between the lyrics and the music is great. I read somewhere the lyrics are about them when they were "going through a dark time" or something....I think it's mostly about them trying to get a message through but no-one's listening...I kind of agree with lilyloves.
