"Suppose" as written by and John Vesely....
Suppose that I missed you
Suppose that I cared.
And suppose that I've spent all my nights running scared
And suppose that I was never there.

And my eyes are screaming for the sight of you
And tonight I'm dreaming of all the things that we've been through
And I can't hold on to you.
So I guess I feel lonely, too.

Suppose we were happy,
Suppose it was true.
And suppose there were cold nights,
But we somehow made it through
And suppose that I'm nothing without you.

And my eyes are screaming for the sight of you
And tonight I'm dreaming of all the things that we've been through
And I can't hold on to you.
So I guess I feel lonely, too.

Slow way down,
This break down's eating me alive.
And I'm tired, this fight is fighting to survive.

Tell me a secret, (I want it)
Tell me a story, (I need it)
I'll listen attentively,
I'll stay awake all night.
Allow me to whisper (so softly)
There's nothing I did mean (please help me)
But it's in my body
It's strong enough to fight (Let's make this right)
Please help me make this right.

Suppose that I was wrong,
Suppose you were here.
And suppose that I reached out and caught your tears
And suppose this fight just disappeared.

My eyes are screaming for the sight of you
And tonight I'm dreaming of all the things that we've been through
And I can't hold on to you.
So I guess I feel lonely, too.

    General CommentThe meaning of this song is pretty obvious, he's had a fight with his partner, and is just wanting her back. It seems like he knows he's the wrong one, the lyrics in the bridge sorta suggest that the fight might have been over him not listening to her or anything.

    It's a great song, and like all John's song, its something I can relate to..

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite songs on the album and it has so much meaning in my life. This song just pulls you in, you become one with the story and by the end you can feel all the heartbreak and all you want is for him to be happy again.

    gah I love this song so much

    General CommentWhoever wrote the lyrics forgot the very last line:
    "But I'd rather be here with you"
    I normally wouldn't say anything, but it's my absolute favorite line, in fact it's what makes this song my favorite on the album.

    My InterpretationI can easily see that this song is about a difficult break up, or at least a rough patch in a relationship. Despite that, as soon as I heard this song, I couldn't help but mentally associate it with the long distance relationship I am in. The chorus, especially with the final line, made me notice and feel connected to this song. I guess beyond being about a break up, I interpret this song to just be about the difficulty of being apart from the person you love.

    My eyes are screaming for the sight of you
    And tonight I'm dreaming of all the things that we've been through
    And I can't hold on to you
    So I guess I feel lonely, too
    But I'd rather be here with you
