An hour ago
I felt so low
I almost drowned
Driving around this messed up town

It's pretty, it's only
I felt so lonely
And I knew all night
I'd never find a face can understand how much I miss you now

And so I arrive
At the conclusion
Love isn't made
Love doesn't sell or pay
But we buy and sell our love away

Escaped to the water
I stare up at the stars
And moon and sky
I was lying on my back with my fingers in the sand

Alone in Miami
It sounds so funny
And yet here I am
It's funny how life is seldom what you plan

And so I arrive
At the conclusion
Love isn't made
Love doesn't sell or pay
But we buy and sell our love away

Don't let the panic bring you down
Don't let the panic bring you down
(Don't let it bring you down)
Don't let the panic bring you down
Love isn't made

(Don't let the panic bring you down)
How could we have let this go?
(Don't let the panic bring you down)
How could we have almost lost it all?
(Don't let the panic bring you down)
Don't let the panic bring you down
(Don't let the panic bring you down)
How had we forgotten
Love isn't made

    General CommentHe's alone, without is wife/love, thinking about how he either lost her or almost lost her.
    And he realizes people don't "make love" to one another, but it's a transaction. It's a give and take. We have a finite amount of love to give, and if we give it all to someone who isn't for us, we won't have any left. It makes him panic to think about how close he was to loosing the one he had given all his love to.

    General CommentBeautiful song. He sees how the world is fallible, "messed up town." Comes to the conclusion, through epiphany and/or revelation that his once preconceived notion of love and..later on his life was skewed. His new "reality" changed with the pining of his emotional connection...his women.

    Beautiful song for the ones miss..and maybe will never see again.

    Pronounced heartfelt longing.

    Lyric CorrectionThis might be a stretch, but I feel it's more up Jon Foreman's alley: "It's funny how life is sold on what you plan" instead of "...seldom what you plan. I just don't hear the 'e' of 'seldom' in there. This is my guess, and if correct, I would interpret it as... When we're making a big life-directing decision, we 'buy' a choice based on our own plans, which don't usually pan out. The confidence we have in our pictures and plans of future life does become funny after we see how differently life has come to be in reality. Funny... we think we're the molders of our own lives. And if it is 'seldom,' well, it was a fun thought.
