"Maybe" as written by Robert Conley and Darren Hayes....
Maybe you're gone
You had to get outta here
It's easy to get lost in fear
But maybe now the weight has lifted
You're sailing through the air

Making your way
A traveling acrobat
You're putting on your bowler hat
Speeding through the atmosphere
Past planes and meteorites

Maybe you're gone
Maybe you're lost somewhere
Floating in outer space
A radio wave tuning into some
Secret place I've never been
Leaving your heart beating in fragile hands
And nobody understands
Maybe you're gone
Maybe you are finally coming home

Maybe the end was the beginning
The game is no fun when you're winning
The pool is empty unless you're swimming
And trying to keep afloat

Maybe you stayed just a little while
The party was over but you realized
That memory makes you immortalized
You end when you're beginning

Maybe you're gone
Maybe you're lost somewhere
Floating in outer space
A radio wave tuning into some
Secret place I've never been
Leaving your heart beating in fragile hands
And nobody understands
Maybe you're gone
Maybe you are finally coming home

All the lights shine above you
They become a part of you
All the earth seems so tiny in your hands

All the stars move inside you
All the pain that's behind you
All the secrets will blind you
Understand?

Maybe you had to get out of here
Maybe you lost your way down here
Maybe you've found a shinier star
A shinier star
Leaving your heart beating in fragile hands
And nobody understands
Maybe you're gone
Maybe you are finally coming home

    General CommentI think this song is about suicide. Someone (the speaker's friend?) has committed suicide, a wonderful person who never truly fit in with the world. The speaker is wishing him/her a much better time in the hereafter. Anyway, it's such a beautiful song, and it's helped me through some rough times when several people I knew took their own lives.

    General Commenti totally agree, i always just thought it was about death in general, suicide makes even more sense...
    such a beautiful song.

    General CommentI think it's more than just about suicide. This song addresses forgiveness and understanding to someone who took their own life. It's almost like saying "I realize you could not bear the weight and I'm not judging you. I hope you find peace and release on the other side"
