"Replacement" as written by and Adam/warfield Bravin....
Oh my lover look what you've done,
You've gone and took your love away.
It seemed to me the only way out was run,
Despite you're trying to beg me to stay.

It started as an honest attraction,
Began under the guise of a flirt.
Till you were screaming at the edge of the bed
"Nobody moves, nobody gets hurt!"

[Chorus]
You said
"Come back baby, please don't go,
Come back baby, please don't go,
Come back baby, please don't go,
Come back baby, you hurt me so."
Wake me on the other side,
You can hold your breath,
I'll be dreaming she's easy.
We can always say we tried,
If we both come clean, maybe then you can please me.
Wake me on the other side,
You can hold your breath
As the thought of her drags her down.
She cries like a baby
And she only learned to dream in sound.

Oh my lover the clock runs slow
Ever since the day you went away.
And though I've tried a hundred ways to forget you,
Still the emptiness is always the same.

No matter who is lying beside me
All it does is make me wish it were you.
And if I close my eyes tight I can almost pretend,
And for a moment it's as if it were true.
You said

[Chorus]

You can't pin it all on me,
The blame is mine to bear.
With all the things I've done to you,
We're far beyond repair.

But still sometimes I think of us,
And how things fell apart.
And how you knew from the first kiss
That I would break your hears.

[Chorus: x 2]

    Song MeaningFor me, it's all about the relationship that you can't get over and can't get back. The one you blame yourself for, that if you would have done something differently you could have been happy.

    Fantastic song.

    My InterpretationIt is a story about a guy, that fell in love with a girl, deeply in love. The guy unfortunately is already taken, in a relationship since years, with own kids and all that. The girl knew about it, from the first kiss. After months the guy still can´t make the decision to leave his family for her. She decides not to see him any more some day, because it hurt so much. Her heart still beats for him, but her mind thinks it is the best for both. Well... he is still not able to make a decision, feels a lot for her, feels bad, hears her crying, still in love, is not able to sleep and thinks every second of her, closes his eyes and wished even his wife could be the girl for a second. They have to get clean first, has to leave his family. He knows it never should have happened, the first kiss, feels sorry to have dragged her down into this situation.

    "You can pin it all on me,
    The blame is mine to bear.
    With all the things I've done to you,
    we're far beyond repair."
    I´m sorry!!!

    General CommentSWR's sophomore effort This Is Forever (2007) appears not to have disappointed, and I believe this song is this album's crowning achievement. Like their last album's "Tear You Apart" and others, SWR sings of relationships' many happenstances, both whimsical and perilous. Definitely one of the finest bands making music today.

    General Commentnot the crowning achievement.

    It's just an okay song with a little haunted part at 3:15.

    First, Love, Checking Out and Pretend the World are much better.

    General CommentGot to agree with tad482. Definetly a great band. Song meaning to me, is about a girl he hurt a long time ago, and now he regrets it and misses her, with veiled reference to him being hurt by her as well. Great song, reminds me of one of my past relationships
