"Miami" as written by and Adam Burbank/mascherino Lazzara....
The whole truth and nothing but the truth
Stop me if you've heard this one before
The whole truth is nothing but a good excuse
So long as you don't torture me with my past
Let's be honest; a secret silenced is a secret safe

Miami, Miami, Miami
Well every hour on the hour
(Every hour on the hour)
You have to, you just have to trust me
Whoever I was then,
I can't ever be again

Reminders, they are not reluctant
So stop me if you've heard this one before
Sideways blinders,
I can't find a way (around a way) around

Miami, Miami, Miami
Well every hour on the hour
You have to, you just have to trust me
Whoever I was then,
I can't ever be again

The faith you found I never felt (never felt)
The terror held in wedding bells
And comfort in there's no one else
The truth be told I'm never gonna know

Miami Miami Miami
Well every hour on the hour (every hour on the hour)
Unhand me, God damn me, Miami
Whoever I was then I can't ever be again

The faith you found I never felt (never felt)
The terror held in wedding bells
The comfort in there's no one else
The truth be told I'm never gonna know
The terror held in wedding bells
The comfort in there's no one else
The truth be told I'm never gonna know

    General Comment....okay that cut off my comment. lol.. continuing:

    instead of "the faith you found I never found" i think it's "i never FELT"

    and the last line it's not "would you be told i'll never go in alone" -- it's "Truth be told I'm never gonna know" .... yeah sorry i'm nit-picky lol.

    you did a pretty good job though, i couldnt get those verses the first 20x i listened to the song lol

    General CommentCut my comment once again:
    IMO this song is about a relationship, where one sied is hiding something about their past, possibly a story about an ex he can't quite get over with (miami being the place where he used to live and date this girl). He's trying to get over his past but he can't (can't find his way around miami).
    The line about the the terror of the wedding bells makes imagine all this as happening right before a wedding. They're trying to get all the details about their past settled right before tying the knot. And I suppose they do since he manages to convince her that what's done is done (Whoever i was then i will never be again, the comfort that there's noone else).
    Although the story about relationships is terribly cheesy, it's can be looked at more generally as quite good lyrics about starting again.

    General CommentAgain, like some of the other songs on this album, I feel like it is dealing with God. Perhaps someone close to him found God and he is having trouble dealing with his own beliefs.

    And for a real big stretch... Miami being a metaphor for sin? He knows he's been living a life of sin, and therefore doesn't want to be tortured for the things he did once, and that's his fear in accepting God in his life??

    I'm sure I'll be torn apart for that one.

    General Commentmy favourite song on the album so far i think.
    not quite sure of the meaning tho.. possibly about a past relationship, something about keeping secrets from someone else.. and admiting that he shouldnt have or summit?
    "You have to, you just have to trust me
    Whoever I was then, I can't ever be again"

    i don't know how accurate i am, but its such an awesome song. i love the way adam sings "Reminders, they are not reluctant
    So stop me if you've heard this one before
    Sideways blinders,
    I can't find a way (around a way) around.."

    amazing.
