Well I remember the first day
It was so close to the end of May
It's when I finally opened my eyes
I saw the sun for the first time
Oh and it lied in the form of a beautiful girl
Who would take me on the ride...of my life
And it's just something that I've been dying to know

Oh where did you go?
Cause I've been waiting here so long
You know that I've been reading you notes
They always hinted towards the fact that you were coming home
And as I struggle with this reality
This is all that's left of me
Half of my heart, my mind, and my body are...gone

We worked side by side in the same town
And when I finally opened my mouth
The right words just flew out
Oh it was such an amazing sound (such an amazing sound)
When I got the courage to tell you you're a beautiful girl
And I want you by my side...and in my life
Cause it's just something that I've been dying to know

Oh where did you go?
Cause I've been waiting here so long
You know that I've been reading you notes
They always hinted towards the fact that you were coming home
And as I struggle with this reality
This is all that's left of me
Half of my heart, my mind, and my body are...gone

(??A bright spirit??. All I have said is that I love you very much. Do you love me? And only me?)

So let's go back down to the bank of that river where
We can dive right in and forget about the worries from the world outside
Cause you know my world, my world's not over
Because I have, an angel on my shoulder

So where did you go?
Cause I've been waiting here so long
You know that I've been reading you notes
They always hinted towards the fact that you were coming home
And as I struggle with this reality
This is all that's left of me
Half of my heart, my mind, and my body are...gone

    General CommentI heard this song is about the lead singer's girlfriend dying in a car accident while he was on tour. He even included a phone message he got from her. It's a very sad song.

    General CommentThis is such a cute song..

    But that part when it has that verse duet with the girl, it's exactly like the one from Valencia's "Where Did You Go?"
    idk. I like it in both x/
