"Madly" as written by and Kevin M Griffin Tristan Prettyman....
I'm not surprised that you still call
I'm not surprised
I'm more surprised that I won't answer
Pick up the phone to call you back
Pick up the phone to call you back
Ain't it funny how things work out like that

Cause the time that it takes to open my eyes
Is the time that it took me to realize

[Chorus 1]
Madly madly madly
Well tell me that you need me
Show me I'm the only
And that's all I need to know

[Chorus 2]
Madly madly madly
Well if you really love me
When you see me leaving baby just let me go

Well I've been good no I've been great
You say you're in a better place
And honestly I'm happy for ya
But there's a tone in my voice that gives away my selfish choice
Can my heart beat any faster?

Cause the time that it takes to pass me by
Is the time that it took me to realize

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2]

We give it up, try to find what was with us all the time
Gotta lose some things if you're ever gonna get on by
And who was wrong? Who was right?
Always end up in a fight, and I thought I'd crumble no I'm fine

[Chorus 2]

[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2: x2]

    General Commenti love this song, I feel like I can relate to it.....
    Her voice is soo pretty in this song.


    well anyway, i think this song is about how
    she feels that he's not letting her move on.
    he calls just like she knew he would, she doesn't answer though.
    Later she regrets not answering so she calls him back.
    the chorus is trying to say that if he really loved her he would not stop her when he would see her leaving.
    Their relationship was obviously not working out anymore "always end up in a fight" So she is trying to move on and she asks him to just let her go..

    General Commentinstead of "and honestly, i might be for ya" could it be "and honestly, i'm happy for ya"?
    anyone else hear that? i just think it makes more sense.

    General Commentaccording to tristan, it's about the feelings you get prior to a breakup and never really knowing if you're sure about your decision. anyway, it's definitely "and honestly, i'm HAPPY for ya" coz it makes more sense

    General CommentIt is Im happy for you.

    It is about a guy who passed her by and by the time he realizes that he is an idiot she realizes that she needs to be shown the moon and stars..

    she knows he wont do that.. so he has to let her go...
