I was in the back seat going crazy
Like I've never seen the twilight glow before
Neurotic and praying for a green light
Between no man's land and the boarder of Mexico

I can hear those crickets
I know they're telling us something
Something we're not too old yet to ignore

She don't believe anything
She don't believe anything
But, I would believe anything
I would believe anything
And why won't you listen to me
She said, "listen to me
As sure as my heart breaks
My love for you will never change"

I was in the back seat going crazy
Like a long drive home I've never known before
A weekend with my friends
Yeah the wedding party took me in
And like a match in the dark
The colors in my heart went away
I can still feel the back beat
Of that soul band playing
As I set my glass down
And danced my blues away

But, I don't believe anything
I don't believe anything
But, she would believe anything
She would believe anything
Why won't you listen to me
Baby, listen to me
Oh, when the sun goes down
I will always see your face
As sure as my heart breaks
My love for you will never change

I (she) don't believe anything
I (she) don't believe anything
She (I) would believe anything
She (I) would believe anything
Why won't you listen to me
Please, believe what I say
As sure as my heart breaks
My love for you will never change
Oh, when the sun goes down
I will always see . . .
Oh, when the sun goes down
I will always see . . .
Oh, when the sun goes down
I will always see your face

    General CommentAnother incredible WSO song..but idk exactly what i think this means.. when he says...

    "as sure as my heart breaks, my love for you will never change"

    i wanna say that means it doesnt mean it will never change.. actually it means the exact opposite.. that it will prolly change..or..it could be..as true as my heart being broken before.. is just as true as my love never changing for u..haha so i cant decide..it could go either way...

    him saying "when the sun goes down i will always see ur face"
    makes me feel like hes never gonna see her again besides in his head, bcus thats when she leaves..

    none the less...something happen b/t him and a girl...and he realized it in the car one night...

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. The lyrics are so powerful in the sense that they potray a situation relatable to anyone who has experienced a failed relationship. I interpreted this song to be about two people who have ended their relationship because the man loved a woman who didn't love him back.

    I was in the back seat going crazy
    Like I've never seen the twilight glow before
    Neurotic and praying for a green light
    Between no man's land and the boarder of Mexico

    He's going on a trip with his friends, to a wedding, that he isn't looking forward to because it will bring up feelings of his past lover. This poses the setting of where his realization began. The realization shall come up again later, so that you know what I mean by that.

    I can hear those crickets
    I know they're telling us something
    Something we're not too old yet to ignore

    This is foreshadowing what he is going to learn; the crickets possibly represent something of a conscious in the man, it's a background noise helping him understand what has been happening.

    She don't believe anything
    She don't believe anything
    But, I would believe anything
    I would believe anything

    He finally comes to the realization that she was never the right girl for him and she never actually loved him, giving him the confidence to be able to move forward and actually get over her?

    And why won't you listen to me
    She said, "listen to me
    As sure as my heart breaks
    My love for you will never change"

    She would be sure that her heart isn't breaking and her love for him just changed; she doesn't love him anymore.

    Yeah the wedding party took me in
    And like a match in the dark

    I believe this stanza means that at a wedding party he discovered what was really happening in the relationship.

    As I set my glass down
    And danced my blues away

    Here I think that he has come full sircle and realized there isnt a reason to be upset about something that he can change,so he "dances his blues away."

    Oh, when the sun goes down
    I will always see your face
    As sure as my heart breaks
    My love for you will never change

    He's still in love with her but thats okay, someday that will change. He is only in a tmporary state.

    -This is just what I interpreted the song to mean; I think that it can be different for everyone, and thats one of the many wonderful aspects about music, especially by Wild Sweet Orange. This is definitely one of my all time favorite songs :) His voice gives me goosebumps int hte first chorus.
