"overtheyears" as written by and Christofer Drew....
I'm sorry for the nights I let you down
Now all that's left to say is that I turned around
Back to the boy you fell in love with
Not this plague that brings you down
Remind your mom to call me I still care
Cause her approval meant the world
And I will not dare to disagree
With the life you arranged
Just remember only God knows if I've changed
I'll sing along to every song
I'll tag along for the ride
Cause in my head,
I'm right there too,
Through the good times
The bad ones too
I'm here for you
Cause in my dreams
You're the one who keeps me asleep
On the nights where I could care less
If I ever woke up again

    General CommentThese lyrics are completely wrong at some parts. Haha :)

    This is what I hear, and I'm pretty sure I'm right:

    I'm sorry for the nights I let you down
    Now all that's left to say is that I turned around
    Back to the boy you fell in love with
    Not this plague that brings you down

    Remind your mom back home that I still care
    Cause her approval meant the world
    And I not dare dissagree with the life you arrange
    Just remember only god knows if I change

    I'll sing along
    To every song
    I'll tag along
    For the ride

    Cause in my head
    I'm right there to
    Through the good times
    The bad ones too
    I'm here for you

    Cause in my dreams
    You're the one who keeps me asleep
    On the nights where I could care less
    If I ever woke up again

    General CommentI'm sorry for the nights I let you down
    Now all that's left to say is that, I've turned around
    Back to the boy you fell in love with
    Not this plague that brings you down.

    -Sounds like he was with this girl and she left him because he changed and all he did was let her down. He's trying to tell her he's changed back to the guy she fell in love with.

    remind your mom back home that i still care,
    cuz her approval meant the world,
    and i don't dare, to disagree with the life you've aranged,
    just remember only god knows if i've changed

    -this part sounds like he wanted and still wants to be the best he can be for her. she's arranged a life, maybe it doesn't include him cause she doesn't believe he's changed.he just wants her to be happy, so he won't disagree, but he doesn't want her to assume he hasn't changed his ways.

    I'll sing along To every song
    I'll tag along For the ride
    Cause in my head
    I'm right there to
    Through the good times
    The bad ones too
    I'm here for you

    -Maybe he's singing along because every song reminds him of her. By 'tag along for the ride' maybe he means he'll keep hoping he'll be with her again and he'll stay close to her cause he wants to see where they end up. On the way, he's saying he'll be there for her through whatever happens.

    Cause in my dreams
    You're the one who keeps me asleep
    On the nights where I could care less
    If I ever woke up again

    -This part sounds like he keeps sleeping because he dreams of her and he wouldn't care if he never woke up, because his dreams of being with her could keep going.

    Really sweet song, i love it :]
