There's more to this than meets the eye.
You were the back seat driver, everyone knows that, around here.
And we have fallen, and we're reprised,
So many times I know, but you were in my life.

I still reside where you remain, (no I cannot)
I've made the same mistakes again, (yet fall behind)
I won't escape missed misery, (cause you're with my heart)
The death inside of you and me. (in one last dance)
I still remember everything you said, (no I cannot)
And I'm still listening, (yet fall behind)
And if you want, or need to know; (cause you're with my heart)
You'll always be my heart and soul.

In parallel worlds we align.
I hope you're not alone, I hope you're doing fine, and happy.
And if all I have to learn, is how to be sure I'll let go,
You can be my guide.

I still reside where you remain, (no I cannot)
I've made the same mistakes again, (yet fall behind)
I won't escape missed misery, (cause you're with my heart)
The death inside of you and me. (in one last dance)
I still remember everything you said, (no I cannot)
And I'm still listening, (yet fall behind)
And if you want, or need to know; (cause you're with my heart)
You'll always be my heart and soul.

I still reside where you remain, (no I cannot)
I've made the same mistakes again, (yet fall behind)
I won't escape missed misery, (cause you're with my heart)
The death inside of you and me. (in one last dance)
I still remember everything you said, (no I cannot)
And I'm still listening, (yet fall behind)
And if you want, or need to know; (cause you're with my heart)
You'll always be my heart and soul.

    My Interpretationnobody wants to dive into the meaning of this, really? I find Brigade so underrated..unfair 'cause they're amazing!!! they're one of my fave bands and Will Simpson is a fantastic songwriter!

    Anyway. I think this song is about death..not exactly physical death, maybe the "death" of a relationship? But there's a bunch of clues in there that makes me believe it's about loving someone, not being able to tell them, and they've passed on, and you want to tell them how much you love them and how much they meant to you:
    1) the line "...but you WERE in my life" -regret, perhaps?
    2) the line and underlying vocal "the death inside of you and me (in one last dance)" -it's got permanence all over it..death, last dance
    3) ...and basically the entire chorus gives a sad, "goodbye forever" vibe
    4) the line "in parallel worlds we align" -the one singing's on earth while the other's a spirit in another world, most likely heaven
    5) the line "...if all I have to learn is how to be sure I let go, you can be my guide" -I can't help but think this is something someone who cannot deal with death of a loved one would say

    So there you go, that's my interpretation! I could dissect it more but I'm afraid I'd eat up all the space here ;)

    General CommentIf anyone can find out what is being sang on top of the chorus, it would be helpful.
