Sunrays lights your face
This place where the grass is growin
You know I’m with you
This is the morning, this is the wasted one
I had a feeling, now I am left with none
You are the calling, this is the wasted one
This is a boy that’s not afraid to run
This is a soul that’s not afraid to run

And this old map says
That love is where we’re going
But my tattered memories tell me
I should be goin now
This is the longing, this is the wasted one
I had a moment, now I am left with none
This is the warning, I am the wasted one
This is a boy that’s not afraid to run
This is a soul that’s not afraid to run

This is a course I can’t take
This is the reason why you’re not afraid
This is the force and the weight
We can justify a better way

This is a soul that’s not afraid to run
This is a soul that’s not afraid to run
This is a soul that’s not afraid to love
This is a soul that’s not afraid to run

    General Commenta great song. love the intro on it. sounds like its about two people who couldn't get their shit together. missed opportunity or missed friendship or somethin like that. "i had a feeling now I am left with none." i can relate.

    General CommentFor me, he's talking about a relationship with this girl who he's too afraid to let himself love -
    "And this old map says that love is where we're going"... he knows that he's falling, or is supposed to be falling in love with her. "But my tattered memories tell me i should be going now" - a past experience may have affected him in some way so he won't let himself. 'The wasted one' could therefore be referring to him, because he feels her love is wasted on him - or, it could be her... because he had a good thing going on and wasted it by not responding to her love. That's just my own interpretation of the song, but i'm not sure it's valid though. For instance, i don't see how 'we can justify a better way' fits in with my idea, unless he's telling her that they can still be friends even if he can't love her. That might fit in with 'you know i'm with you' aswell because it implies he does care for her. I can also relate... it's a great song.
