All of the things you wanted were just outside your atmosphere
And if you could just have them you would be happy apart from me

And it took a while but it was more than worth the wait

The rain was falling when you said "I'm leaving"
I had to watch you go
I want this Fall to change
I never heard you say that you were wrong

You picked out your path but didn't you ever wonder if I was ok?
And doesn't the guilt eat up your mind? I just thought I'd ask

And it took a while but it was more than worth the wait
This year October came

All these questions hid in me so long
I just want to hear you say you were wrong

    General CommentI could be completely wrong (considering the usual deepness of Mainstays lyrics) but I think this could be about a relationship. I don't think i understand most of this song, but i really love the sound of it. I think the person singing was broken up with and is thinking about the other persons motives. Now he is realizing that it is for the better and that he'd rather change for himself than for the other person. In the middle he is again thinking about the other persons motives and for some reason..something significant was going to happen in october..if it had only come sooner...

    i donno. but i really love the sound of this song.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure rockstar_reaction is right, or it sounds like that to me at least. :)
