If I could start all over with you again,
I’d change the way the story ends.
I’d try my best to help you along,
If ever there’s anything wrong,
But I know you gotta be moving on.


Baby it’s gonna be fine if you have to go
And I always wish you well you know,
It’s time for you to do everything,
You always wanted to do.
So, I’ll see you when you make it through


I couldn’t do anything right;
I couldn’t do anything right,
I was so far away and you shut me outside.
Shut me outside,
Shut me outside.


God I wish I was sleeping with you tonight,
We could listen to the rain outside,
I’d tell you a story, sing you a song, promise you nothing is wrong,
But I know you gotta be moving on.


I couldn’t do anything right;
I couldn’t do anything right,
I was so far away and you shut me outside.


It’s time for you to do everything,
you always wanted to do.
So, I’ll see you when you make it through
Yeah, I’ll see you when you make it through

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl who breaks up with her boyfriend
    and he is blaming himself
    but he wants her to be happy to live her life just how he would want that if they were together.
    ...if that makes sense. haha :)

    anyway, great song. aidan is a genius, by far my favorite artist.
