Make a wish tonight
Take me back to the days of last summer
I come by 'round 9
I couldn't help but wonder
What's wrong, what's right?

You're falling hard, and you're taking me under
Baby, it's our time
And baby, it's our time

I know they always say,
True love's gotta set her free.
And maybe I'll get lucky,
She'll come flyin' back to me.

When you walk right by,
You're falling hard, and you're takin' me under.
I can't help but try
Things I miss keep haunting my mind.

Give me one more sign
And give me one more sign

I know they always say,
True love's gotta set her free.
And maybe I'll get lucky,
She'll come flyin' back to me.

Yeah...
Yeah...
Yeah...
Yeah...

Gimme a sign,
I swear I'm gonna make it up to you.
Just one more night,
There's some things I just got to do.

Gimme a sign
I swear I'm gonna make it up to you
With just one more night,
There are some things I’ve just got to do
Give me a sign
I swear I’m gonna make it up to you
And in watching all the things you do
There's something that slips through to you
Watching all the things you do
There's something that slips through

I know they always say,
True love's gotta set her free.
And maybe I'll get lucky
She'll come flyin' back to me

Things I'll miss, I'm comin' back
Somethings I just cannot change
So let it go, make it happen.

The things I miss ain’t coming back
There’s some things that just cannot stay
The things I miss ain’t coming back
There’s some things that just cannot change
I’ll let it go…

    General CommentThings I ask keep haunting my mind.

    I think it should say "things I miss"

    other than that this song is really good and it sounds so nice

    General Commentthis song makes me like chocolate fondue!!

    i dont exactly know what this song means, but if i hunch that it means that this guy loves this girl so much and he doesnt want to leave her but they need to. i dont know why they have to part but thats what i got.

    Happy Valentines Day Loves!

    General CommentOne of my friends is the bassist for HP, and there's a lyric error. It should be take me back to the DAYS of last summer....

    and the song is about a guy who wants to go back to the year before when him and a girl were together because he did something to mess up their relationship...hence the reason he wants to make it up to her and he's hoping she'll come back

    General Commentthis song is beautiful
    i think its about a guy who messed up his relationship with this girl and he realy wants her back,
    he wants to make it up to her and tell her how much he realy does love her, and he wants to make it work this time
    he is hoping that she stilll loves him and she will come back to him,
    even if people tell him its not worth it, he needs to let go, he doesnt want to he is still holding on to that last bit of hope, its the only thing he has left.

    well thats what i think atleast,
    hope dies last(:

    General Comment"take me back to the days of last summer"
    i think this is referring to the past relationship they had together.

    "you're falling hard and your taking me under"
    i think this means that she is beginning to fall for someone (or him?) while he is realizing that he is falling for her.

    "and maybe i'll get lucky, she'll come flyin back to me"
    again, i think this is referrring to a past relationship, where he just wants them to be together again.

    "i'm gonna make it up to you"
    he realized what he has done to screw up that love they once had and wants to fix it.
