"Hello, I'm In Delaware" as written by and Dallas Green....
So there goes my life
Passing by with every exit sign
It's been so long
Sometimes I wonder how I will stay strong
No sleep tonight
I'll keep on driving these dark highway lines
And as the moon fades
One more night gone, only twenty more days

But I will see you again
I will see you again a long time from now

And there goes my life
Passing by with every departing flight
And its been so hard
So much time so far apart
And she walks the night
How many hearts will die tonight
And when things have changed
I guess I'll find out in seventeen days

But I will see you again
I will see you again a long time from now

My body aches
And it hurts to say
No one is moving
And I wish that I weren't here tonight
But this is my life.

And I will see you again
I will see you again a long time from now

And I will see you again
I will see you again a long time from now

    General CommentAlright guys, I'm going to tell you the story behind this beautiful song.

    When Dallas was on tour with alexisonfire, they went to a teeny little venue in northern Delaware called the Harmony Grange. While he was here in Delaware, he fell in love with a girl, but unfortunately had to continue on tour with the band. He wrote this song to describe his emotions in having to be away from the girl.

    General CommentThis song is great, i'd like to think it means more that just him being away on tour possibly or just away for a little while. But there is one thing that is certain is that he cant stand being away from the girl that has been left behind. i guess its about being away from something that you really need and cant live without. "there goes my life" the farther he gets away from her

    General CommentI agree with you deathcab, I feel this song (along with half their songs) have to do with a sadness caused by the absence of a lady friend. I like how he timelines his tour and picks up a happier note when he says
    "and I will see you again..."
    unfourtunatly from all his other sings we know how this relationship ends...how said :(

    also, I would like to commend the acoustics in all his works, they make my free time more joyous.

    General CommentEveryone keep in mind that Delaware is an agricultural/industrial state with nothing at all except a tiny beach down on the southern corner. :D I don't know if that helps with your meanings, but it could in a way.

    General CommentThis song is most definatly about Dallas being on tour..counting down the days to see his 'lady friend'...This song is so amazing on like 80 different levels, along with everything else Dallas has ever been involved in. I wish i could have his babies.Oh, also.. the song title is a line from Waynes World,which was the first thing that came to mind when I heard this song :)
