"Leaving The Citadel" as written by Drew Preston Dowell, Francis Julian Gross, Aaron G Johnson, Justin M Johnson and Geoffrey Colin Walker....



You seemed so strong, stood your ground. Is this enough to make you proud?

The seasons barely change. They move too fast for me.Back home the autumn leaves are falling softly from the trees. Don't take this away, I'm close to sanity. I pushed against the grain and drove a thousand miles away.

There's nothing left (I've given all I have) Done what I can (I've leaned into the wind) It's all (it's all)For you (I've done all that I can) There's nothing left(I've given all I have)

You seemed so strong, stood your ground. Is this enough to make you proud? You seemed so strong, stood your ground. Are you proud?

Winter turns to spring, but it still looks the same. The city is gray and there's still the constant rain. Now I understand the things you gave to me. Because I have the means to fight a faceless enemy.

There's nothing left (I've given all I have) Done what I can (I've leaned into the wind) It's all (it's all) For you (I've done all that I can) There's nothing left (I've given all I have)

I'm sorry. I'm trying. Are you proud?

    General CommentThis song is Awsome! n there isn't any comments?!?!?

    I think the most obivious meaning is that this is about somebody going off to collage or simply just moving out of their parents house (back home the autumn leaves ... and drove a thousnd miles away)

    However, if u look deeper it also could represent a relationship where the singer '[did] what [he] could' to make it work and so did the other person. Everything seemed fine on the surface (winter turns to spring, but it still looks the same) but they both still have hard feelings n fight a lot (... there's still the constant rain.) Still, the singer is sorry for what was said n done and by a saying 'Are you there?' he is asking if the person he cares for is still wants to try or if they have already set their mind to leave.

    Just a thought
