"A Twist In My Story" as written by and John Vesely....
Slow down, the world isn't watching us break down
It's safe to say we are alone now, we're alone now
Not a whisper, the only noise is the receiver
I'm counting the seconds until you break the silence
So please just break the silence

The whispers turn to shouting
The shouting turns to tears
Your tears turn into laughter
And it takes away our fears

So you see, this world doesn't matter to me
I'll give up all I had just to breathe
The same air as you till the day that I die
I can't take my eyes off of you

And I'm longing, for words to describe how I'm feeling
I'm feeling inspired
My world just flip turned upside down
It turns around, saw that's that sound
It's my heart beat, it's getting much louder
My heart beat, is louder than ever
I'm feeling alive, I'm feeling alive

The whispers turn to shouting
The shouting turns to tears
Your tears turn into laughter
And it takes away our fears

So you see, this world doesn't matter to me
I'll give up all I had just to breathe
The same air as you till the day that I die
I can't take my eyes off of you

I'm finally waking up, a twist in my story
It's time I open up, and let your love right through me
I'm finally waking up, a twist in my story
It's time I open up, and let your love right through me
That's what you get
When you see your life in someone else's eyes
That's what you get, that's what you get

So you see, this world doesn't matter to me
I'll give up all I had just to breathe
The same air as you till the day that I die
I can't take my eyes off of you
So you see this world doesn't matter to me
I'll give up all I had just to breathe
The same air as you till the day that I die
I can't take my eyes off of you

    Song MeaningApparently it's about the day John Vesely became a father. So sweet of a sentiment, and it's a really sweet song, so real and raw. The orchestra really adds to it.

    "'A Twist In My Story' is one of my favorite songs on the album. First off, the production is great. I always wanted to have an orchestral-based song, and I think it came together really well. I didn't really know what to do with it when we started recording. There were ideas of throwing in a full band, but I really had my heart set on keeping it simple and intimate. It needed to be acoustic-based, so I recorded the acoustic guitar track, and we sat down to start throwing ideas out. We ended up giving stings a try, and instead of keeping them in the background, we put them right up front.
    This song is also very important to me because I wrote it about the day I found out I was going to be a father. It starts off with the phone call telling me the news and continues with the emotions and feelings running through my head. I wanted to make this song extremely personal and literal. I wanted to make it feel like the listener was there finding out with me."- John Vesely

    General Commenthahah ken, nice.

    This song is so sweet.

    "I'll give up all I had just to breathe
    The same air as you till the day that I die"
    that's the definition of love.

    General Commenti think it means that when you get so involved in someone elses lives, that you are more or less living theirs and abandoning your own. When that person leaves you, you are left with out a life.

    My Interpretationi think this song is about how for 1 has had most of all his songs about sad happenings. this one changes and now for once he is happy which is the twist in my story.

    Slow down, the world isn't watching us break down
    It's safe to say we are alone now, we're alone now
    Not a whisper, the only noise is the receiver
    I'm counting the seconds until you break the silence
    So please just break the silence

    at first he seems like he's getting more comfortable because the world isnt watching him. Now there alone and he’s thinking that there alone now so its okay. He’s wanting her to break the silence because he wants to hear her voice.

    "My whispers turn to shouting
    The shouting turns to tears
    Your tears turn into laughter
    And it takes away our fears"

    at first he thinks this relationship is going to be bad again, but in the end it takes away his fears. or changes into something good now.

    So you see, this world doesn't matter to me
    I'll give up all I had just to breathe
    The same air as you till the day that I die
    I can't take my eyes off of you

    this part he will give up everything just to live because he is happy now. he wants to be with this person forever sharing the same air until the day he dies.

    he's relaxing.

    “And I'm longing, for words to describe how I'm feeling
    I'm feeling inspired
    My world just flip turned upside down
    It turns around, saw that's that sound
    It's my heart beat, it's getting much louder
    My heart beat, is louder than ever
    I'm feeling alive, I'm feeling alive”

    this part describes much because everything is changing and now he's feeling his heart grow, and feels alive, actually wants to live.

    I'm finally waking up, a twist in my story
    It's time I open up, and let your love right through me
    I'm finally waking up, a twist in my story
    It's time I open up, and let your love right through me
    That's what you get
    When you see your life in someone else's eyes
    That's what you get, that's what you get

    and the bridge explains everything. he's finally opened up and let her into him. He’s realized this is whats right for him and he will now be happy

    So you see, this world doesn't matter to me
    I'll give up all I had just to breathe
    The same air as you till the day that I die
    I can't take my eyes off of you
    This world doesn't matter to me
    I'll give up all I had just to breathe
    The same air as you till the day that I die
    I can't take my eyes off of you

    And now you realize as he oes that everythings okay now. All he wants is her and he’s happy with that.

    This song is amazing. Especially if u played it to someone. Imagine telling someone that they’ve changed your life from all the bad that’s been going on. And for once you feel free to open up and let that person in. well I hope my interpretation opened some eyes. I love this song, and I play it everyday



    and i cant beleive im the first one to interpret. how sad its my favorite song by them :)

    General CommentHe said recently, in a "JAMNOW" interview..that he wrote this song, when he was thinking about his children. More specifically, when he found out that he was about to be a father, like, when he found out his wife was pregnant with his son.

    General CommentThe way is says "whisper" and "receiver" is really cool.

    Some of these lyrics are wrong.

    This is a really good song.
