I think you got ahead of me, you got ahead of me, walking back towards the sea and moving steadily
As far as the eye can see all is empty, no sign of anything resembling the living
So baby come home don't you leave me all alone, the knots that you make ties that you break, life you take all add up to nothing, nothing, but...

When you don't play by the rules... [dodododo]
The days turn black and blue [dodo]
I guess you got some things to do [do do dodo]
I'll remember you [do do]

These are not the eyes of me it's just a side of me
Rising like the tide of sea nothing more surprises me
Slip away so quietly I am riding walking on the side of me please come cry with me

I think you got the best of me because the rest of me has lost all feeling
with no sounds of healing
How can I just let it be, when everything isn't how it oughta be, it's my autobiography.
So, when the wind blows will you hit that lonely road and never look back at what might have come to pass so it became nothing, nothing, cause...

When you don't play by the rules [dododo do]
The days turn black and blue [dodo]
I guess you got some things to do [do do dodo]
I'll remember you [dodo]

I fell down from the top of the world
It's my farewell party
I'll sail off into the setting sun (hey now)
I fell down from the top of the world
and these words of parting
were written with love just for you


"Please don't think less of me
Because the better me
That stands right next to me
Waits for me to set it free
I am what i used to be
To confused to see
Haven't gotten used to me
Root, trunk, branch, leaf

That's the way it's supposed to go
I'm one my shoulder knows
Asking them to hold the boat
This the fit we chose to throw
Cold nights and lonely roads
I want you to know that you're the only one that makes this life so beautiful"

Say it like you mean it, like you beleive it, cause I best believe in going with the season
I appreciate you telling me, cause I was wondering why my ears are ringing each and every evening
So off I go back to things I used to know and when I look back the good and the bad times that we had all add up to something, something, cause...

When you don't play by the rules [dodod do]
The days turn black and blue [dodo]
I guess you got some things to do [dodo]
I'll remember you [dodo]

When you don't play by the rules [dodod do]
The days turn black and blue [dodo]
I guess you got some things to do [dodo]
I'll remember you [dodo]

    Song MeaningI think it's about a guy and his girlfriend is in a confusion state and she wandered off and basically the guy wants her back and he's all lonely

    "come home don't you leave me all alone"
    "I'll remember you "
    "please come cry with me"

    he's saying he's nothing without her, she has the best of him and he wont feel right untill she's back with him.
    He can't just let it go cause it doesn't feel right without her there his world has crashed down. and he's basically saying how in love with her he is!

    "these words of parting, were written with love just for you"
    "I want you to know that you're the only one that makes this life so beautiful"

    What wonderful lyrics!

    Lyric CorrectionI think you got the best of me because the rest of me has lost all feeling
    with no sounds of healing

    Should be "with no signs of healing"

    Other than that everything looks right great job and I can't believe no one else has commented on such an amazing song
