"Sore" as written by and Adam Tyler Baker....
The sorest of times
Got your thoughts on my mind
The faster they come
They less I remember

The brightest of days
You're three states away
You squint through the sun
As you leave with the sparrows at dawn

The coldest of nights
Shaken in fright
Spit through my teeth
Roll down my chin and I stare

If I ever let out of bed
WIthout a kiss to the center of your head
Then I never deserved you from the start
And you can let loose the wall around my heart

If I never let out of my door
Never ...

If I never let out of ..
...with the family, keep it warm

The sorest of times
I can still find your line
If I'm down on my feet
If I'm hollow, I don't care

If I never let you let of my door
Never ...

If I never let out of ..
...with the family, keep it warm

If I never let you let of my door
Never ...

If I never let out of ..
...with the family, keep it warm

Keep it warm
Keep it warm
Keep it warm
Keep it warm

    General CommentI'd like to think this song gives off a warm, appreciative, feeling. The person expressing his feelings has a somewhat selfless love for his girl. He longs for the moments they get together and misses her when she's away. It's nice.

    General CommentI see the song a bit differently, clara. To me, it is a song of regret. He's using a lot of "ifs" and it sounds like he regrets fighting with his love and driving her away. "If I never ... etc, you'd be home with the family keeping warm" I haven't quite deciphered the chorus yet, but at I get at least

    If I never let you out of my door
    Never ((would have)??

    If I never kicked you out
    Been so short
    You'd be home with the family keeping warm.


    The last verse makes it sound like he still has hope for working it out.

    My Interpretationthe lyrics above i believe are mostly right. after many close listenings and watching live performances of the song, i think these are the correct words:

    sorest of times
    got your thoughts on my mind
    the faster they come
    the less i remember

    brightest of days
    you look three states away
    spit through my teeth
    let it roll down my chin and then i stare

    if i ever let you out of bed
    without a catch to the center of your head
    well then i never deserved you from the start
    and you can let loose the warmth of my heart

    if i never let you out of my door
    you'd never broke your leg in the park
    if i never picked you out, this i'm sure
    you'd be home with a family keeping warm

    sorest of times
    i can still find your light
    if i'm down on my fate
    if i'm hollow, i don't care

    if i never let you out of my door
    you'd never broke your leg in the park
    if i never picked you out, this i'm sure
    you'd be home with a family keeping warm

    if i never let you out of my door
    you'd never broke your leg in the park
    if i never picked you out, this i'm sure
    you'd be home with a family keeping warm

    if i never let you out of my door
    you'd never broke your leg in the park
    if i never picked you out, this i'm sure
    you'd be home with a family keeping warm

    keeping warm
    keeping warm
    keeping warm

    General CommentI've updated it with what you have there, but I still think it's a "kiss to the center of your head"

    General CommentAfter listening a bunch of times, I still think there are a couple tweeks. Just my $0.02

    @jmb5346: This does sound like it could be written for his dog.

    In the sorest of times
    got your thoughts on my mind
    The faster they come
    the less I remember (you?)

    On the brightest of days
    you look three states away
    You squint through the sun
    as you leave with the sparrows at dawn

    On the coldest of nights
    I sit shaking in fright
    I spit through my teeth
    let it roll down my chin then I stare

    If I ever let you out of bed
    wIthout a kiss to the center of your head
    Well then I never deserved you from the start
    and you can let loose the warmth around my heart

    If I never let you out of my door
    you'd never have broke your leg in the park
    If I never picked you out, this I'm sure
    You'd be home with a family keeping warm

    I the sorest of times
    I can still find your light
    If I'm down on my feet
    If I'm hollow, I don't care

    If I never let you out of my door
    you'd never have broke your leg in the park
    If I never picked you out, this I'm sure
    You'd be home with a family keeping warm

    [repeat]

    Keeping warm
    Keeping warm
    Keeping warm

    General Commenthis dog? where did you get dog from? i feel like it is pretty obviously about a girl, and a relationship he is in... just my thoughts... like when he is saying if he never gave her a kiss on the head when she left the bed then he wasn't good enough for her... and that if he didnt have her, she'd be at home with a family.... maybe a reference to the fact that he tours a lot and he has to leave her.

    General CommentAfter reading about the dog reference it actually does make sense.

    "if i never let you out of my door
    you'd never broke your leg in the park
    if i never picked you out, this i'm sure
    you'd be home with a family keeping warm"

    he's talking about an accident. The dog got out and something/someone broke his leg.
    If he hadn't picked him out at the pound/shelter/whatever, someone else would've picked him up and he would've been with that family "keeping warm", and the accident wouldn't have happened.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that this isn't about his dog... It's about absence from a loved one, as in being on tour and away from his girlfriend a lot. IDK, maybe that's just me.
