You don’t know but that’s okay
You might find me anyway
Don’t you know that i
Belong arm in arm with you, baby
In a town that’s cold and gray
We will have a sunny day
Don’t you know that i
Belong arm in arm with you, baby…

I do not know
Where does it go
When it goes
Suddenly though
Everything’s slow
And i miss you so

Round each corner there’s a chance
People searching glance to glance
Moving bout real fast
Like insects and fish when they’re scared
And they sing the same old song
Though it’s been so very long
They sing, raindrops falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean that i am dead

And i do not know
Where does it go
When it goes
Suddenly though
Everything’s slow
And i miss you so

You don’t know but that’s okay
You might find me anyway
Don’t you know that i
Belong arm in arm with you, baby
In a town that’s cold and gray
We will have a sunny day
Don’t you know that i
Belong arm in arm with you, baby…

    General CommentI think this song is about love, and also the desire for human connection. The person she cares about doesn't know about her feelings, but she's okay with that because she's confident that even if they don't return her sentiments that she'll be alright.
    Then she talks about how people are all trying to find that connection around every corner, but they're caught up in their lives so they are unable to find it often times. And at the end when she says "baby" a few times I think that signifies her genuine hope and loneliness for this person. Just my thoughts

    General CommentSo last night, an old boyfriend that is now a very close friend read my mind when we were discussing our one week relationship that took place 6 months ago. He was going through girlfriends, and told me not to tell his girlfriend now (which is my good friend) that he thought that we could have worked. This song came on just then.
    I don't think it's as much as shes talking about someone she is totally in love with, but someone she rejected (*I don't kniow where does it go*)
    and someone that every once in a while questions why it ended and misses it.

    General Commenthmm. i think it could be that she doesn't know who it is she belongs with, she just knows her perfect match is out there ("people searching glance to glance")
    or simply a crush.
    OR any/all of the above.
    longing.

    General CommentI think it's unrequited love because she's saying they do not know she's in love with them ("You don't know but that's okay"), but she's hoping that one day this person might develop feelings for her as well ("You might find me anyway").
    I think the reason for their being a chance 'round each corner is either because it's someone who lives in town who she could bump into (and possibly hasn't seen her in a while), or like someone else said that it's no one in particular but she's just lonely and wants to find that special someone. Either way, this song's cute. XD
