We lost you long ago along the way
I never thought I'd be here without you
And everytime I think about the way
I think maybe I'm better off
Maybe I'm better off...still

Wait until tomorrow and I'll be fine
Wait until tomorrow and you'll see,
You'll see that I'm worth waiting for

I'm right here, just come out and say it
I try to reason with myself
To think of all that life could be
If we could only capture what we've seen

I never thought I'd leave here without you
Now I know that this is the way
I think that maybe I'm better off
Maybe I'm better off...

Wait until tomorrow and I'll be fine
Wait until tomorrow and you'll see;
You'll see that I'm worth waiting for

I'm right here, just come out and say it
I try to reason with myself
To think of all that life could be
If we could only capture what we've seen

I'm right here
Come out and say it
I'll come out and say it
To think of all that life could be
If we could only capture what we've seen

    General CommentHow did you figure these out?

    Did you just get it from memory when they played at Warped, or is there a recorded version somewhere?

    General CommentThere is a video of them playing this song on youtube, and I just tried my best to get the lyrics from the video. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    General Commenti think that someone is thinking back on a girl they used to like realizing what could have been, and she realizes it too but there to afarid to admit to it.

    im wrong, but no one has said anything yet.

    General Comment'To think of all that life could be
    If we could only capture what we've seen'

    Craig's saying how he and his girlfriend fantasized about the future- 'only capture what we've seen'. and then he thinks about what life would be like- 'To think of all that life could be'

    General CommentThe actually lyrics are:

    We lost you long ago along the way
    I never thought I'd be here without you
    And every time I think about the way
    I think maybe I'm better off
    Maybe I'm better off... still

    Wait until tomorrow and I'll be fine
    Wait until tomorrow and you'll see,
    You'll see that I'm worth waiting for

    I'm ready, just come on and say it
    I’ve tried to reason with myself
    Just think of all that life could be
    If we could only capture what we've seen

    I never thought I'd leave here without you
    Now I know that this is the way
    I think that maybe I'm better off
    I know that I'm better off... still

    Wait until tomorrow and I'll be fine
    Wait until tomorrow and you'll see,
    You'll see that I'm worth waiting for

    I'm ready, come on and say it
    I’ve tried to reason with myself
    Just think of all that life could be
    If we could only capture what we've seen

    I'm right here
    Come on and say it
    Come on and say it
    Just think of all that life could be
    If we could only capture what we've seen

    General Commenti adore this song. alot.
    it's nice to hear another side to craig's thoughts. usually chiodos' stuff tends to be a bit more on the dark side.
    cs' stuff so far looks like it's mostly love songs and things like that,
