"Stone" as written by and Kelly Jones....
I don't know why I let you go
You said you'd wait I said I'd hope you would
We talked 'till late until we walked away
What's meant to be will be the same

And I feel like stone
Yes I feel ice cold
I pick myself up from the ground
Sick to death of lying down
And now I have to find you once again

You're in my soul
You're in my mind
But I don't know where you are now
You're in my soul
You're in my mind
But I don't know where you are now

Driving 'round and 'round until it's dawn
To look for you in rooms we used to go
I held you back, I had to set you free
But now I know what's meant to be

And I feel like stone
Yes I feel ice cold
I pick myself up from the ground
Sick to death of lying down
And now I have to find you once again

You're in my soul
You're in my mind
But I don't know where you are now
You're in my soul
You're in my mind
But I don't know where you are now

You're in my soul
You're in my mind
But I don't know where you are now
You're in my soul
You're in my mind
But I don't know where you are now

    General CommentCracker of a song off the new album.
    The song is about relationship that one person left, but looking back on it they regret their decision and wish they could find this person again.

    General CommentMy fifty cents…


    I don’t know why I let you go
    You said you’d wait I said I’d hope you would
    We talked ‘til late until we walked away
    What’s meant to be will be they say

    He’s broken up with his girlfriend, who he evidently felt a lot for. Like he says, he doesn’t have a concrete answer or excuse for the breakup, he’s clearly confused. His girl evidently feels strongly for him too, yet perhaps presumes that he wants their relationship to end so doesn’t put up a fight for fear of making it more painful for both of them, yet she lets him know that she’ll always be there. Maybe the guy has been going through some difficulties and feels like he is holding her back with his problems, it’s not that he doesn’t love her anymore, it’s more complex than that. I don’t think she knows the real reason for him ending it- I think she probably just thinks that he’s fallen out of love with her. Strong tones of resignation and sorrow in this first verse. There’s also a definite sense of hope that fate will bring them back together later in life when the timing is better…if they are meant to be together.

    And I feel like stone
    Yes I feel ice cold
    I pick myself up from the ground
    Sick to death of lying down
    And now I have to find you once again

    Without her, the guy feels lost and alone. He’s restless and doesn’t know what his life really is without her in it- it’s only once he ends the relationship that he realizes how much he loves her and what he’s lost.

    You’re in my soul
    You’re in my mind
    But I don’t know where you are now
    You’re in my soul
    You’re in my mind
    But I don’t know where you are now

    He can’t stop thinking about her, she’s become a part of his soul and mind and he can’t escape her. As he can’t get her out of his head, maybe she’s supposed to be there? He doesn’t know where she is now, they were so close before but since he ended the relationship she has clearly moved on with her life and he’s lost the connection with her.

    Driving round and round until it's dawn
    To look for you in rooms we used to go
    I held you back, I had to set you free
    But now I know what’s meant to be

    A feeling of desperation- he’s hopelessly trying to find her even though deep down he probably knows that his chances are slim- she’s just become a memory to him that won’t escape his mind. He’s reliving his time with her, nostalgically looking in the places they used to go together with the hope that she may be there waiting for him. He starts to understand that he was mistaken in letting her go- he thought that he was doing the right thing because he thought he was holding her back, but now he knows how crap his life is without her, he’s knows that they aren’t meant to be apart and he is determined to get her back.

    And I feel like stone
    Yes I feel ice cold
    I pick myself up from the ground
    Sick to death of lying down
    And now I have to find you once again

    You’re in my soul
    You’re in my mind
    But I don’t know where you are now
    You’re in my soul
    You’re in my mind
    But I don’t know where you are now

    You’re in my soul
    You’re in my mind
    But I don’t know where you are now
    You’re in my soul
    You’re in my mind
    But I don’t know where you are now

    This is really sad…I hope he found her again and they lived happily ever after!! Or maybe he didn’t and they both found someone else and they were never really meant to be together after all…who knows!

    I’m sure lots of people can relate to this song in one way or another…whether you’ve broken up with someone and realize that it was a mistake and want them back, want someone that you can’t have at a certain time in your life for whatever reason, or if you’re just confused in love.

    Love Stereophonics! Sorry this was so long!
