Take me as you are
Push me off the road
The sadness I need this time to be with you
I’m freezing in the sun
I’m burning in the rain
The silence I’m screaming
Calling out your name

[Pre-Chorus]
And I do
Reside in your light
Put out the fire with me and find
Yeah you lose the side of your circles
That’s what I’ll do if we say goodbye

[Chorus]
To be is all I got to be
And all that I see
And all that I need this time
To me the life you gave me
The day you said goodnight


The calmness in your face
That I see through the night
The warmth of your light is pressing unto us
You didn’t ask me why
I never would have known
Oblivion is falling down

[Chorus]

If you could only know me
Like your prayers at night
then everything between you and me will be alright

[Chorus]

She’s already taken
She’s already taken
She’s already taken me
The day you said goodnight

    My InterpretationAt first I thought it was just words jumbled together to make it catchy, then I realize there are much more than those words.


    --Take me as you are
    Push me off the road
    The sadness I need this time to be with you
    I’m freezing in the sun
    I’m burning in the rain
    The silence I’m screaming
    Calling out your name--

    The singer, seems to be sad because that someone can't be with him. Because of that, he's freezing in the sun, burning in the rain, somewhat opposites of the usual reactions, kind of signifying he's so sad, because the one he's calling to is not with him at the moment.

    [Pre-Chorus]
    --And I do
    Reside in your light
    Put out the fire with me and find
    Yeah you lose the side of your circles
    That’s what I’ll do if we say goodbye--

    Although sad, he still believes into that someone, and believes that if that someone keeps ignoring him, she'll lose herself, but only if she already knows him because he can do things that'll probably change her view, thus "Put out the fire with me and find" part.


    [Chorus]
    --To be is all I got to be
    And all that I see
    And all that I need this time
    To me the life you gave me
    The day you said goodnight--

    To be what he is, that's the only thing he can do, and the only thing he can see and need is the life she gave to him, that single moment or day, when she said goodnight to him.


    --The calmness in your face
    That I see through the night
    The warmth of your light is pressing unto us
    You didn’t ask me why
    I never would have known
    Oblivion is falling down--

    They've met actually, but only occasionally, specially during the night where they both go homes, as they're neighbors or live close to each other, that's why he can see her "calm face" during the night, and also how she said goodnight to him.

    However, she didn't know that she gives off this "vibe" where he feels so good, feels so happy, that she didn't bothered to ask why. Eventually he figured out, but at the same time, oblivion fell down, means there's something bad bound to happen.


    --If you could only know me
    Like your prayers at night
    then everything between you and me will be alright--

    Upon this part, he believes that if she knows him more, then they'll be together, and things will be better if she tries to know him more.

    [Chorus]

    Upon this final chorus, things started to slow down, as he tries to revoke the emotion when the day she said goodnight, for one last time.



    --She’s already taken
    She’s already taken--

    He knows that she have a boyfriend, lover, and that's the reason they can't be together because he does not want to meddle in her relationship.


    --She’s already taken me--
    However in this line, he's already in love with her which he can't stop more longer, that's why he's stuck on being sad, then happy whenever he remembers the day she says goodnight to him, the time when she made him happy.



    --The day you said goodnight --
    Last line, the title, and of course the whole meaning of this song, remembering the day she said goodnight.
