Everyday your picture fades
The promises we made not forgotten
So turn away
We could leave this place
In these crowded streets of grey
You bring colour
So you say that you're leaving
But what are your reasons
I'm desperate and ashamed
So go find your answers
To get you home faster
I know you'll find your way
You'll find your way

I'm barely alive
Though miles may come between us
You're always and forever on my mind
When you go
Don't forget to write
You're the best that ever happened
I never would imagine
You would change my life

Twelve days past
SInce I saw you last
Only memories to keep me
Hanging on
With all we had
You never asked
Just where I was
And how I was doing without you

So you say that you're leaving
But what are your reasons
I'm desperate and ashamed
So go find your answers
To get you home faster
I know you'll find your way
You'll find your way

I'm barely alive
Though miles may come between us
You're always and forever on my mind
When you go
Don't forget to write
You're the best that ever happened
I never would imagine
You would change my life

You'll find your way
You'll find your way

I'm barely alive
Though miles may come between us
Your'e always and forever on my mind
When you go
Don't forget to write
You're the best that ever happened
I never would imagine
You would change my life

    General CommentSad song. I'm guessing the guy in the relationship screwed up somehow (desperate and ashamed), and now the girl is leaving him. Or maybe he's just ashamed at how he's so desperate to keep the girl.. maybe he thought he would be stronger than that (since most guys don't like to be seen as weak). Anyway, he truly loves the girl and wishes she would come back, but it looks like the girl is doing just fine without him and doesn't even communicate with him anymore to see if he's ok.

    As for the 'you'll find your way' part, I take that as either the guy believes that the girl will eventually realize how much their relationship meant to him and she'll come back to him, or that she'll find her way without him and never return (sadly, probably the second one).

    I think most of us can relate to this one, if you were ever in a relationship that ended badly but you still really care about the other person while they seem to be going through life just fine without you. Stay strong.

    General CommentThe song is about a guy and a girl in a relationship. The girl or guy has to leave to be somewhere else. So they're trying to keep up a long distance relationship. "Those worlds may come between us, you'll always and forever be on my mind" He's talking about being miles and miles away from each other. And he's singing about always keeping her in his heart, and never forgetting her.
