I've seen love
kick a man while he stand
when you think that you're alone
You cover it up
just to stay on your feet
but the cut is just too deep

I was wrong
when I said "you were right"
Cause it's no fun
when everything is so nice

[chorus]
But I've been waiting too patiently
for life to turn it's back on me and
not just go my way

All down the line
it's hard hard to believe
that we ever lived apart
Sometimes a girl can make you forget
we've been alone since the start

There's no fate
like a healthy break
Now I've got
no heart left to ache

[chorus]
But I've been waiting too patiently
for life to turn it's back on me and
not just go my way

'Cause everything was so perfect back then
I don't understand why
we can't let it stay that way

[repeat chorus, etc. etc.]

    General CommentI think this song is about some guy who's always being pushed around and told what to do and one day he realizes that by trying to make everyone else happy, he failed himself, Hence "I Was Wrong". He was wrong about his approach. "I was wrong when i said you were right" He lied to whoever the person was just to make him/her happy and he realizes it was wrong.

    General CommentI just saw this band at Outside Lands. They were my favorite band of the festival and I downloaded all their stuff from iTunes the same day.


    when you think that you're alone
    .....
    All down the line
    it's hard hard to believe
    that we ever lived apart
    Sometimes a girl can make you forget
    we've been alone since the start

    This song seems to be about staying connected to yourself, especially when in you're in love. In a way it makes me think of attachment in general. All good things come to an end and if you lose sight of yourself feelings of depression and hoplessness will follow -> You cover it up, just to stay on your feet, but the cut is just too deep

    Lyric CorrectionI've seen love
    kick a man while he's down
    When you think that you're alone
    then you cover it up
    just to stay on your feet
    but the cut is just too deep

    I was wrong
    when I said "you were right"
    and it's no fun
    when everything is so nice

    [chorus]
    Well I've been waiting too patiently
    for life to turn it's back on me and
    I just go my way

    A month down the line
    it's hard to believe
    that we ever lived apart
    And sometimes a girl can make you forget
    we've been alone since the start

    There's no thing
    like a healthy break
    Now I've got
    no heart left to ache

    [chorus]
    Well I've been waiting too patiently
    for life to turn it's back on me and
    I just go my way

    'Cause everything was so perfect back then
    I can't understand why
    we can't let it stay that way

    [repeat chorus, etc. etc.]
