"In Another Life" as written by Nathan D Leone, Matthew J Leone, Daniel David Torelli and Mateo Camargo....
I remember our first kiss
The butterflies, I know you felt them too
I can still taste your lips
That night I wrapped up all my love in you
But deep inside I always knew
The sadness around you was deadly
I must hate myself
'Cause I also knew one day you'll destroy me

But there's something I've got to know
(Before we say goodbye)
Will I ever see you again?
(Somewhere in another life)

I remember our first fight
Your skeletons were all up over you
I can still taste that night
When you told me you'd been beat up and abused
You'd hide it all
Bruised mouths don't talk
It's not your fault
It was never your fault
It's an evil world for an innocent girl
It's not your fault
It was never your fault

But there's something I've got to know
(Before we say goodbye)
Will I ever see you again?
(Somewhere in another life)
I'm going to try to be okay
(But I need you to know)
Wherever you are now
(That here you were adored)

You were always great at running away
But you said forever
You promised forever
I forgive you
I've forgiven you
And now I just miss you
I'll always remember you

Go!

Oh, sleep in peace

But there's something I've got to know
(Before we say goodbye)
Will I ever see you again?
(Somewhere in another life)
I'm going to try to be okay
(But I need you to know)
Wherever you are now
(That here you were adored)

    General Commentthis songs is so perfect. it epitomizes teenage love in that we always know it is going to end bad, but we throw ourselves into it anyways. And we always hope that things can still work out in some far distant future

    General CommentOne Comment?!
    I cant believe it...
    Yeah I agree (God thats all i seem to be doing)
    1st love = 1st breakup = heartache.
    You move on, but that 1st one is always special and is always the one you'll remember.

    General CommentI think it's about this guy who fell in love with this girl who was all messed up and had a really bad past.
    And he knew she'd pull him into her black hole, but he fell for her anyway.
    And she probably killed herself, or ran away.
    And with that, she did, in fact, pull him into her black hole.
    And he's just as depressed as she was, if not worse, thinking,
    "Why did she leave me like this. Didn't she love me?"
    But he forgave her, knowing the pain she was in.
    And he just misses her, and hopes to see her again, somewhere, somehow.

    General CommentI have a very personal feeling with this song. It reminds me exactly of this one girl who I loved completely... She told me some tragic things from her past that she'd never told anyone before, she was "beat up and abused" in a way... We fell in love...I remember our first and only real kiss, everything we shared...But she moved away, left me and I always wonder if we'll meet each other again someday...the only difference between our story and this song is that she was never sad, at least never on the outside, and she always brought me up from the down; she was an amazing person, my guardian angel...

    General Commenthmmm...
    clearly,addressed to adalia.
    I'm thinking,perhaps this is from her boyfriend.This is after shes disapeared for the second time-shes gone,but this is different from the first time because this time is for "forever"He talks about their first kiss etc,because this was the intimacy he reached with her-yet after that point,she would cut off from him-this is the sadness he refers to-she wouldnt let him get any deeper,wouldnt confide etc.(this fact is mentioned in the auspice).But then he found out that she was beaten and abused,and assures her it wasnt her fault. "here you were adored"-by EVERYONE in the town that is.

    Song MeaningI love this song. Has to be one of my fave's of off this album xD

    “I remember our first kiss, the butterflies
    I know you felt them too
    I can still taste your lips
    That night I wrapped up all my love in you
    But deep inside, I always knew
    The sadness around you was deadly
    I must hate myself
    'Cause I also knew one day you'd destroy me”

    This part I think tells us that he knew she had a dark soul (and maybe suffered from depression), but he still feel in love with her even though he “knew one day you'd destroy me”; maybe he even knew she would end up trying to kill herself but he ignored it because she meant so much to him.


    “But there's something I've gotta know
    Before we say goodbye
    Will I ever see you again
    Somewhere in another life?”

    I’m thinking maybe the last conversation he had with her. Maybe she dropped hints that she wouldn’t see him again. He knew that if he stopped her then it would only cause her more pain so instead asks the un-answerable question weather they’d meet again “In another life”


    “I remember our first fight
    Your skeletons were all up over you
    I can still taste that night
    When you told me you'd been
    Beat up and abused”

    He thinks back to their first fight. Maybe he tried to get to know her better and she had pushed him away causing the fight. She then told him that she’d been abused. (Maybe as a child?)


    “You'd hide it all
    Bruised mouths don't talk
    (It's not your fault, it was never your fault)
    It's an evil world
    For an innocent girl
    (It's not your fault, it was never your fault)”

    She told him that he was the only one she had told; since she hides it from other people. “You hide it all, Bruised mouths don’t talk”. She blames herself for being so weak to let that person hurt her, but he soothes that is isn’t her fault she was innocent in all of it. “It’s an evil world, for an innocent girl”


    “I'm gonna try to be okay
    But I need you to know
    Wherever you are now
    That here you were adored
    You were always great at running away
    But you said forever, you promised forever”
    Now it’s after she has killed herself and he is coming to terms with her death. The first part of grief then hits, telling the person even if they can’t hear you, that you still love them. Then the second stage hits, anger. He is angry that she broke their promise of them being together forever.
    “I forgive you, yeah I've forgiven you
    But now I just miss you
    I always remember you”

    Finally the last stage of grief; he forgives her for taking her own life and leaving him alone. And the anger he once had directed at her is now replaced by the longing for her to be with him again. He also lets her know that even though she took her own life, she’ll still be a part of his... in his memories.


    “Sleep in peace”

    Kind of speaks for itself really...
