"Where Did You Go?" as written by George Ciukurescu, Shane Henderson, Jonathan Perry, Max Soria and Brendan Walter....
And it feels like this is the last chance I have to say
Every word that I've been fighting
Well, I have finally decided to hold my head up with pride
And accept the way life takes you through these changes
Cause when you reach the stars you've made it

It's just there's something that I've been dying to let you know
And now that you're gone I'm holding on and I just can't let go

I get a little down on myself
But when you came around my world felt new
I opened up my eyes to the light
And I saw deep inside of a love that was true

And if I ever let you go I'm hoping that some time will show
That you're the one, you're the one for me

And it feels like this is the perfect time
For me to say that deep down inside I'm hurting
But at least I know you're worth it

And if I hold myself with pride and accept the pain
Then life will take me through these changes
Cause I have so much left to see

It's just there's something that I've been dying to let you know
Cause now that you're gone I'm holding on and I just can't let go

I get a little down on myself
But when you came around my world felt new
I opened up my eyes to the light
And I saw deep inside of a love that was true

And if I ever let you go I'm hoping that some time will show
That you're the one, you're the one for me

So let's go back down to the bank of that river where
We can dive right in and forget
About the worries from the world outside
Cause you know my world, my worlds not over
Because I have an angel on my shoulder

And I'll be coming home and when I feel those butterflies
I'll see that I need to find a better way
Just to believe you're gone
So long, some day I'll find the strength to move on

I get a little down on myself
But when you came around my world felt new
I opened up my eyes to the light
And I saw deep inside of a love that was true

And if I ever let you go I'm hoping that some time will show
Cause you're the one, you're the one for me

    General CommentI agree with xalixo. It's "my whole world felt new"

    As for the meaning, I have two theories.

    1.) He's taking a good look at where he's at and realizing he's still holding onto a past relationship (ie: dana). He reflects on the relationship in an optimistic way, though, and he knows he'll never forget how she made him feel. This song is him admitting that though he misses her and the relationship was perfect, he has to move on. This is basically him getting closure on that part of his life and using that experience as something to grow from.

    2.) This could be about a completely new relationship. He's found a new girl that has finally filled the hole that's brought him down in the past. He's accepting the fact that life goes on, and he's excited that this new love is making his world colorful again.

    Either way I think this song can be summed up in a phrase: when one door closes, another opens. It's a song about closure and new beginnings.

    General Commenti agree with veggiestyle. i think its your first theory though, because if you have his promise of redemption album thats basically all about dana, you can hear the two references to the song "remember the first day" which are "it's just something that ive been dying to let you know" and the "so lets go down to the bank of this river..."

    General Comment(I'm sorry for posting so many comments!)

    I just wanted to say that I just listened and read the lyrics to Remember the First Day. And it's crystal clear that this song is all about Dana. Everything about this song is referencing to that song, even down to the title. So yes, this is a song about him getting, if not closure, then at least acknowledging how much he's still holding on.

    General CommentI get a little down on myself.
    but when you came around
    My whole world felt new
    I opened up my eyes to the light
    and I saw deep inside of a love i felt was true
    And if I ever let you go
    I'm hoping that some time will show
    That you're the one for me

    these are the lyrics i got from JD

    General Commentlove this song, their new album is awesome. but i think this song is about his ex girlfriend--i tend to think that about a lot of his music... it'a hard not to. i'm glad he's approaching things from a happier standpoint.:)
