bright day, blue sky, sunshine
remember what they told you
forever's never if you ever leave it up to you
fuck that i'm gonna forget this
saturday in the middle of august
three steps from a sudden death
but the sidewalk is my friend
for now, i'll wait
i'll count the clouds from a broken gate
'til the neighbors call me names and tell me how they
hate how i changed so much
i used to smile alot and talk about love
but now i'm all alone and my hair is so long
so long i'll see you in a month or two
don't write to me, i won't write about you
and put it in a song vailed in pretty words and chords
hey how are you
the sex was great and i miss the nights
don't forget to turn the tv off
if you think you're wrong then you might be right
about yesterday and the summer that you lost
but keep on smiling, 'cause this is what you wanted
bright day, blue sky, sunshine
remember how they fooled you
today's not over if tomorrow's still a word you use
fuck that i'm gonna end this
sick sigh from the light they brought us
three nights a week i can't sleep
eyes wide open while i think of you
for now, i'll wait
i'll count the stars from a broken gate
'til the neighbors call me names and tell me how they
hate how i changed so much
i used to smile alot and talk about love
but now i'm all alone and my hair is so long
so long i'll see you in a month or two
don't write to me, i won't write about you
and put it in a song vailed in pretty words and chords
hey how are you
the sex was great and i miss the nights
don't forget to turn the tv off
if you think you're wrong then you might be right
about yesterday and the summer that you lost
but keep on smiling, 'cause this is what you wanted
i'm not sure if you remember me
but if you do then you might see
this is the end

    General CommentI agree. but in another sense, I think he is a very relationship-oriented person. he loved her, and they had sex because they loved each other. their love was great.

    General CommentI think that this song is about how he fell in love with someone, and it didn't work out. He can't stop thinking about her, but he wants to.

    "fuck that i'm gonna forget this
    saturday in the middle of august
    three steps from a sudden death
    but the sidewalk is my friend
    for now, i'll wait"

    i think that is about how he could die in three steps, but for now, he'll wait.
    you can tell he's depressed and he's blaming it on her.
    at least that's how I interpreted it

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song right now by Chad. I'll write below what sections of the song I am talking about and what I think it means....

    "bright day, blue sky, sunshine"
    In many of his songs, he is just talking about the day, the weather, and the color blue. :)


    "remember what they told you
    forever's never if you ever leave it up to you."
    He is saying to his ex. That when she says "forever" its really "never" cause thats what she really wanted.


    "fuck that i'm gonna forget this"
    He's saying whatever, he doesn't care anymore and he's going to try and forget what happen, and forget her.

    "saturday in the middle of august"
    He's just randomly saying when that this happened.

    "three steps from a sudden death
    but the sidewalk is my friend"
    He is 3 steps from killing himself over this girl. But then he says "the sidewalk is my friend", i took this as he's walking on the "sidewalk", he's got 3 more steps until he's going to end his life, but he won't cause the sidewalk is his "friend" and won't let him.

    "for now, i'll wait."
    for now, he's going to wait on dying, and just try to get through everything.

    "i'll count the clouds from a broken gate."
    He's outside counting the clouds, probably just trying to quit thinkging of her.

    "'til the neighbors call me names and tell me how they
    hate how i changed so much
    i used to smile alot and talk about love
    but now i'm all alone and my hair is so long"
    I don't think this is just talking about the people next door, I think just people in general that he is normally around, They noticed that he is now sad. He used to smile often and talk about love. But now him and that girl broke up so he is all alone. and he's not happy.

    "so long i'll see you in a month or two
    don't write to me, i won't write about you."
    I think here he is talking to his ex again, Saying "goodbye", I don't want to talk to you again.
    So he says "don't write to me, i won't write about you" saying he won't write music about her.

    "and put it in a song vailed in pretty words and chords."
    this song here is pretty much that. But he says he won't write a song about her with pretty words and chords.

    "hey how are you?
    the sex was great and i miss the nights
    don't forget to turn the tv off."
    Once again, he is talking to his ex, like this is what he would say to her. It's funny what he says, because it is so random. It's like "how are you? ohh yea and the sex was great, I miss it. oh yea don't forget about the tv, turn it off." haha. Its great.


    "if you think you're wrong then you might be right
    about yesterday and the summer that you lost
    but keep on smiling, 'cause this is what you wanted."
    Still talking to his ex, Saying you think your wrong, but your right about their relationship she lost. Porbably there relationship was in the summer. Then he says to "keep smiling, cause this is what you wanted", thats one of my favorite parts. She probably broke up with him, and he says just keep on smiling, cause remember all this is because of you and you wanted this.


    "bright day, blue sky, sunshine
    remember how they fooled you
    today's not over if tomorrow's still a word you use"
    first line, repeating from the begining.
    Then pretty much he just points out that if you say the word "tomorrow" then "today" isn't over.


    "fuck that i'm gonna end this"
    he's gonna quit thinking of her.


    "sick sigh from the light they brought us
    three nights a week i can't sleep
    eyes wide open while i think of you"
    I don't really understand the first line. (but if you figure it out tell me). Then he says he can't sleep, because he is thinking of her.

    "for now, i'll wait
    i'll count the stars from a broken gate
    'til the neighbors call me names and tell me how they
    hate how i changed so much
    i used to smile alot and talk about love
    but now i'm all alone and my hair is so long
    so long i'll see you in a month or two
    don't write to me, i won't write about you
    and put it in a song vailed in pretty words and chords
    hey how are you
    the sex was great and i miss the nights
    don't forget to turn the tv off
    if you think you're wrong then you might be right
    about yesterday and the summer that you lost
    but keep on smiling, 'cause this is what you wanted."
    This is just repeated from before, except now he says watching "stars" from a broken gate.

    "i'm not sure if you remember me
    but if you do then you might see
    this is the end."
    He is saying to the girl, he's not sure if she remembers him. But this is the offical end of them, their relationship is over for good, forever.

    This is a great song, that I can really relate to.
    I'm not sure if everything I predicted about the song was right, but it was just my oppinion.

    General CommentSunshineface, he's mentioned sex, the taking off of clothes, and soooo much more stuff about the subject in sooo many of his other songs. He might not use the word sex, but he does mention it.

    Anyway, I think lizlovespink got it right with what the song is about. I can't really understand some songs too much when they put ideas into single lines for some reason. It really sucks =(
