I don't mind the lack of color that rests around her features
But I loathe the love we had when love was something easier
Lovely, are you lost in these carouseling thoughts?
Tired of never knowing where to stand?
You're always casting to the floor everything that you adore and turning west again
I do my best to ignore the shadows we've cast across the town
Oh
They're gone now
When I arrive to a mind made up, you'll come around maybe this time.
I won't care to find out

    General CommentIm sorry to say this but I like the old stuff better

    Matthew Gilbert will always be my favorite vocalist/lyricist.

    But Travis is good I will give him that
    I just find Matthew's lyrics to be deeper.

    General Commentto me, the 2 new songs have a beautiful lyrics, but the meaning is something personal for each one.

    General Commenti think this is about someone who always pretends to be something they're not

    "always casting to the floor all the things that you adore"
    such as
    you're always dissing the things you love because you're afraid of what people might think
    which is further proved in the line
    "tired of never knowing where to stand"

    General Commentthis song is so stinkin' cute. :)
    to me, it talks about this guy being in love with this girl who just doesn't know what to do anymore & has all these different thoughts. "tired of never knowing where to stand" i think that the girl never knows what to do or say about things anymore. & finally, he's had enough of waiting for her to come around & realize what she wants.
    either way, i fell in love with this song.
    :]

    General CommentThis song is clearly about a relationship.
    "I don't mind the lack of color that rests around her features

    basically he's saying the spouse is lacking interest, lacking emotion, just doesnt feel the relationship is worth having anymore and

    But I loathe the love we had when love was something easier

    saying he used to love when the relationship was young and happy, when everything was going great.
    pretty obvious song.

    General CommentThis song literally has me stuck in a rut. Maybe if you people knew your grammar and vocabulary, you'd see things my way. Loathe from the line, "But I loathe the love we had when love was something easier", means to detest, to hate. So as stated by jasonvwhateverthefuck, it doesn't mean that he missed the relationship when it was young, he despised it. So I don't know what to determine from this song. Learn your English people; please.

    General Commenti think what it's supposed to mean by loathing the past love doesn't mean that he hated then, but he hates it now. like, hates the thought of it. and that may be because he misses it, and doesn't think it'll come back.
