"The Space Between" as written by George Ciukurescu, Shane Henderson, Jonathan Perry, Max Soria and Brendan Walter....
There's something strange going on in my head
That says if I were to get in a car right now
North Carolina is where I would end
And to your doorstep I would be bound.
To whisper the words that I've always wanted to say,
And watch as the sun rips this blue sky away
Cause the colors are always changing
So stare up through the clouds
And at least you know
You're always looking up

So Casey can you remember (do you remember)
Sitting by my side
On the bank of the Delaware River
And talking about life

Don't forget about the blue skies, sunrise, and all the space between
It's amazing how a girl like you can affect a guy like me
All the pictures, memories and all the times we had
Do you think that some things are better left unsaid?

We'd stay inside just to watch the time go by
And sleep the whole day till the night
With everything you said
I'm sure you've got some place that you'd probably rather be
I hope you're singing this song
And thinking about me
Cause Carolina was waiting for you
It's what you always wanted

Don't forget about the blue skies, sunrise, and all the space between
It's amazing how a girl like you could affect a guy like me
With the pictures, memories and all the times we had
Do you think that some things are better left unsaid?

And we run away
Cause the sky looks different when you're in another state
It's everything I've always wanted
And everything I've worked so hard for

Is it in me
To put the bottle down?
Is it in me?

    General CommentA great song from a band I've never previously heard. The song's intro is one of the best heard in a long time (even if it is pop-punk generic). Anyway as far as meaning... It's quite clear that it's a destraught lover fighting his feelings about his ex with Good Ol' Alcohol and him wanting to get over it and see if he has it in himself to "put the bottle down." Well played, Val... well played.

    General CommentCasey, Carolina, Delaware River.
    This is a great song. hearing it introduced me to the rest of their album, which is great too.
    yeh, the meaning is pretty straight forward, like thecrowning83 commented on, but yeah, it's good.

    General Commentactually, I take it back. It's not as straight forward as I thought. Thinking about it when it says:

    - And we run away
    - Cause the sky looks different when you're in another state

    I'm not sure what he means by "another state". It could be the alcohol, I guess.

    - Is it in me
    - To put the bottle down?

    So I guess that makes more sense.
    Yeah, this song is still amazing, though...

    General Commenti think "Cause the sky looks different when you're in another state" refers to him missing this girl since he is apparently in another united state as in " were to get in a car right now North Carolina is where I would end". i can totally relate to that having just moved to a new state.

    General CommentThis is a great song but i think its more about this girl he knew going away to college in north carolina and he doesnt know if they can be together because of his alcoholism

    General Commentwell, knowing the band, the singer whose feelings are being portrayed in the song, and the girl he's talking about, let me shed some light. thecrowing83 is partly right..."It's quite clear that it's a destraught lover fighting his feelings about his ex with Good Ol' Alcohol and him wanting to get over it and see if he has it in himself to put the bottle down." When it says about another state, he was staying near his hometown to go to school, and she was leaving the hometown to go down to school in North Carolina. That is why he's fighting these feelings, because of the distance... and like I previously stated, he fights it by using alcohol.
