I never knew what it was like to be alone
I never wanted you to go back home
I'm so damn sorry for everything I did
I was just a stupid kid

These girls sing songs that I will never know
How love can last if you only let it go
We're broken in two like the pendent of a heart
but we only had a start

& my heart finds peace tonight & my soul finds comfort there
In the knowledge that you'll someday, maybe be alright

I never wanted you to be alone
I never thought I could break our happy home
I'm so damn sorry for everything I did
But im still that stupid kid

& my heart finds peace tonight & my soul finds comfort there
In the knowledge that you'll someday, maybe
Someday maybe, someday maybe be alright

    General Comment(Track 13 - the final track - from the album The Sparrow and the Crow)

    A new understanding solitude in the absence of his betrayed love, the man finally finds a way to come to accept the loss. He knows that his love has an opportunity to be happy again. All though that is small compensation to the wounded it is all he has. He knows that she may be happy, and that is what he truly wants now. That is the only way he can find forgiveness and closure.

    General CommentI agree.
    and, i find such comfort in this song.
    It's like he's saying
    "I'm sorry, but it happened this way, I hope you'll be okay."

    General CommentIt's "How love can last if you only let it grow" not "How love can last if you only let it go".

    My favorite song of his though. The sound, lyrics, just everything. Very calming.
