I don't believe there is a plan
Feels too much like an accident
I stumble blindly into your life
This non-believer

We walk under these city lights
We stand under the darkest nights
And I can't imagine anything more up there beyond the sky
I went to church on Christmas Eve
For the first time in a century
I sang the carols but I could not believe
This non-believer

My dad said, "Son, there's nothing else
Before you love someone you gotta learn to love yourself
Know when they're gone they will be truly be gone
So don't you waste your time"

But I wasted time in the dye I cast
I will not blame this on my past
I broke your heart
Just messing around
This non-believer

Open up my eyes to find
You've learned a few tricks in your time
And I spend my days just treading water
Never learning how to swim
My friends and family call me up
Say "You're all right, but what the fuck?"
What were you thinking
Choose your head, foolish non-believer"

It's buried deep but I suspect
There is something here to resurrect
People collide, buildings collapse
Gotta try again

I don't believe there is a plan
Feels too much like an accident

    General CommentWow, can't believe no one's commented on this yet! This is my favourite Plaskett song by far.
    To me, it's about a person who finds themselves stumbling upon someone unexpectedly, and that initial meeting makes a deep impression on the other. The narrator of the song, however, doesn't believe in love or themselves and doesn't take it seriously;
    (I broke your heart
    Just messing around
    This non-believer).

    Eventually, though, the narrator does realize he loves (I opened up my eyes to find), but can't do it properly. He still can't take anything seriously, and the other person has already moved on.
    I think it's about love that hasn't come to the surface yet...or how sometimes the seemingly unimportant people can turn out to be the ones who affect you the most. I can relate to it.
