So we've become so cinematic,
With every word you come unglued
So we'll let this settle, ferment and grow
Until we're both completely out of control

How was I supposed to know
Retrace my steps, find my way home
How was I supposed to know
Retrace these steps, find our way home

Soo I'll push my seat back, as far as it will go
Hold on tight, as your lungs collapse
I can't wait 'till the impact hits you in the face
You can finally see we were meant to be

How was I supposed to know
Retrace my steps, find my way home
How was I supposed to know
Retrace these steps, find our way home

With my lungs collapsing
I'm drowning in the backseat
Holding on to nothing
That's all thats left of me ...

( These breaks are going out )
( I'm looking straight ahead )
( Before we both go out )
( I loved you half to death )

How was I supposed to know
Retrace my steps, find my way home
How was I supposed to know
Retrace these steps, find our way home

There's beauty in a car crash
There's beauty in the payback
This is my big city shakedown
When there's beauty in the breakdown

    General CommentTalk about an amazing song, huh.
    this is about 2 people falling out of love and while he tries to save the relationship she just gives up completely, at least that what it is to me.
    He realizes there is nothing he can do, so he lets go and finds the good things that came of there break up/falling out.

    these lyrics are priceless, i love flight 409

    General Commentwow, not many comments i see.
    this song ah-mazes me,
    anyways i think the song is about a guy and a girl who are having some problems and they are just falling apart, he is trying hard to save their relationship because he loves her so much, but she doesnt seem to care so much. then he finally gives up and lets go and relizes that there isnt anything more he can do, and he also finds that there will be good in the two breaking up, no more problems or worries.
