"High Life" as written by Daniel John Vickrey, Ben Mize, Adam Duritz, Charles Gillingham, David Bryson and Matthew Malley....
All my friends got flowers in their eyes
But I got none this season
All of last year's blooms have gone and died
Time doesn't give a reason
Hey baby, do you ask yourself sometimes
What you need to be forgiving
You know, everything that you have ever done wrong
Is the reason that I am driven
Straight to tears

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I get my ends and my beginnings mixed up too
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might wanna stay for just another day
Or two
Oh, ho

Waiting for the trains that just never come
Beginning to believe in
Disappearing nature love
The people we have been, we have begun to change
Into the worst kind of people
So why go?
Oh
Oh, apologies, no apologies, this apology
It doesn't describe the way it feels to feel for you

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I find myself slowly disappearing too
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might wanna help me to remain with you
I just, I just, I- I just wanna stay
For a little while
I wanna stay- ohh, for a little while
Come on, come on, come on, oh, oh

The night life is just falling down on me
I just feel like a change
Beneath the sun in the summer sea of flowers
Won't bloom without the rain, oh, oh, oh
This desert life, this high life
You have to die it another day
I wasn't made for this scene, baby
But I was made in this scene
And baby it's just my way
I don't wanna go home alone
I wanna come on home to you

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I can line the sky with all the silver I can use
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might wanna stay for just another day
Or two
Oh, oh

    General CommentIt's an apology for leaving his girl, I think.
    He wants her to know that he knows it was wrong, he just needed time to figure it out. He apologising for not realizing they belong together. Good song. :]]
