"18 days" as written by and Jason Null Jared Weeks....
Its been 18 days
Since I'd look at myself
I don't wanna have to change
If I don't then no one will
Is it my state of mind
Or is it just everything else
I don't wanna have to be here
I don't understand it now

[Chorus]
'Cause its been eighteen days
Since I first held you
But to me it feels just like
It feels like a lifetime
I'm trying hard to re-arrange
Some say its the hardest thing to do
But that's another eighteen days
Without you

Time after time
I've been through this
You show me what it means to live
You give me hope when I was hopeless
As my days fade to night
I remember that state of mind
I'm soaring straight into your heart
And I'll fly high

[Chorus]

And I know what they say
About all good things
Will they come to an end
But I'll fight this time
So that we might
Have a chance at this

'Cause it's been eighteen days
Since I'd look at myself
I don't wanna have to change
If I don't then no one will

'Cause its been too many days
Since I first held you
But to me it feels just like
It feel like a lifetime
I'm trying hard to re-arrange
Some say it's the hardest thing to do
But that's just too many days without you

And I know what they say
About all good things
Will they come to an end
But I'll fight this time
So that we might
Have a chance at this

    General CommentThey sound kind of country in this song... It's weird. I'm not sure if I like these guys or not yet... But yeah the meaning is pretty obvious.

    General CommentI love this band. My husband has this song on his myspace...he is in the Army so this song suits him. Although its been a lot longer than 18 days...more like 13 months.

    General CommentThis song is means a lot to me. I heard it the first time on my fiance's 18th day in prison. He went in on a parole violation because at one of his regularly schedualed meetings with his parole officer he tested dirty for alcohol. He's been battling with alcoholism for a while now, and I told him that if he didn't change I couldn't do it anymore. So the verse
    "Cuz’ it’s been 18 days
    Since I had to look at myself
    I don’t wanna have to change
    If I don’t then no one will
    Cuz’ it’s been too many days
    Since I first held you
    But to me it feels jus like
    It feels like a lifetime
    I’m tryin’ hard to rearrange
    Some say it’s the hardest thing to do
    But that’s just too many days
    Without you"
    is really fitting for him. He says I'm the only person in the world he can change for, and this song gives me hope. :)

    General Commentsoo...this song makes me cry thinking about it...i haven't seen my bf in about a year now...i hate the army right about now...i can't say it was at 18 days that i completely felt the effects...but definitely after 18 weeks you start to feel it for sure...
    this song is self explanatory, guys misses his girl after 18 days of not being able to hold her...w/e long distance relationship that is...like cw543 says with dedicating it to troops across seas, they really hit it on the nail with this one...

    General CommentI read somewhere that the singer Jared Weeks said the song was about a sheriff that was shot several times while on a call. He had severe injuries to his face and was kept in the hospital. He was released 18 days later he was finally able to look at himself in the mirror. The lyrics describe his thoughts and feelings at the time.
