"I Heard It's the Softest Thing Ever" as written by Jeremy Wade Mckinnon, Joshua Steven Woodard, Neil S Westfall, Thomas H Denney Jr. and Alexander Thomas Shelnutt....
Tonight I'm sending a message
This is the end of an era
The end of second chances
In the face of defeat
I'm winning
Yet, you still have so much left to say

They're coming straight for me

Just let me go for now
I'll be just fine
Don't you know now that I'm back on my own

Tell me how it feels to watch the walls of your security crumble
I remember you, you took the easy way out when I gave you something to stand for

They're coming straight for me

Just let me go for now
I'll be just fine
Don't you know now that I'm back on my own

I was just another promise that you couldn't keep

    General CommentSomething about a breakup...

    and what annoys me is on a lot of songs people just say "OH YEAH I REALLY LOVE THIS SONG!" and I'm like who the fuck cares I would like to hear what you got out of the song... seeing as how the site's name is songmeanings... -__-

    General CommentThis song to me is about a person that was given up on maybe? It actually works really well with an old friendship I had..especially the lines "I was just another promise that you couldn't keep"

    General CommentReally like this song,
    possibly my favourite from the album.

    There's some lyrics missing..
    "Read between the lines
    We can't give in this time"

    General CommentI was watching a film on sky indie called 'Thumbsucker', the main character just had sex with a girl and his younger brother asked him what her p*ssy was like, then he said 'I heard its the softest thing ever'. Maybe thats where they got the title of the song from

    General CommentIt's a really good song, and I love the meaning behind it, or at least the one I draw from it.
    I don't even really know how to explain what it means to me..
    I went through a really bad breakup, and this is how I felt.
    I felt..hurt, but stronger? because of it.

    General CommentThis song really means a lot to me right now,
    I was in a relationship for nine months and my girlfriend
    dumped me. I really didn't want to let her go I felt like she was the
    one an she would always play stupid little head games saying
    she wanted me back when she really just wanted someone to care about her.
    I finally got over her and that's what I feel like the first verse is about,
    "the end of an era" "the end of second chances". I felt defeated for a long time
    but once I was able to get her out of my mind I felt like I had finally won.

    Tonight I'm sending a message
    This is the end of an era
    the end of second chances
    In the face of defeat
    I'm winning
    Yet, you still have so much left to say

    A few months later she realized that I was truely the one for her and
    she tried getting back with me and I told her that I was better off on my own,
    thus the chrous.

    Just let me go for now
    I'll be just fine
    Don't ya know now that I'm back on my own

    I feel like the second verse is about her realizing that I was finally done
    and that I was no longer her "security".

    Tell me how it feels to watch the walls of your security crumble
    I remember you, you took the easy way out when I gave you something to stand for

    This last part to me was basically about her breaking all our plans for the future,
    having kids, getting married, etc.

    I was just another promise that you couldn't keep

    Anyways that's just what the song means to me...


    P.s - Fucking amazing!!!!
