i will never remind you, it's time to leave
that would mean less time for me to breathe
i will never, try and touch you first
i don't want any chance that you could get my curse

so if you must go
and by that i mean if you must fly away
and if you must leave
and by that i mean if i must wake up from my sleep
how will i know, i wasn't dreaming of heaven

i know you can't hear me anymore
theres too many walls, too many doors
but as you walk away wont you think of me
remember us how we used to be



before we go down

the water fell from the sky
it rained all day and all night
and the rivers flooded our whole town
so i swam to your house so we could float around

and i said, before we go down
i have to tell ya that i love ya
before we go down
i hope you know that i care
cause i kept all these words
bottled up so tight
but tonight's the night ill tell ya
your the love of my life

our plane came tumbling from the sky
we fell so fast, we were up so high
and ya didnt even make a sound
but i held your hand, till we hit the ground

    My InterpretationThis song is so great, and personally I think its meaning is about a girl he never met, but dreamt of about and thought of constantly. It wasn't the kind of love he had for an actual person, but the idea of this strong love with one he never met. Kinda defines the word "Dreamgirl". (Dave Matthews)

    Ignore my last comment, typo on the second sentence. :]

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song is that the singer was in a relationship with someone whom he loved very dearly, but she no longer loved him back. As shes 'walking' away from him he is thinking to himself that she might have been the one, yet from some of the things he says it sounds as if he is letting her go. He's upset that he can't be with her anymore, but in the end hes just happy to have met her and to have loved her at all.

    Well thats just what I think anyways. But this song is amazing and it pretty much sums up how i feel about the recent breakup between my ex-girlfriend and I a month and a half ago. We dated for two years and I thought she was the one, but I guess not :(

    Song MeaningI think its a song about a girl and him that were always in the friend zone. They wanted to be more and tried it, it didn't work. The time they had together was great (for some reason it couldn't work). They no longer worked as friends and they didnt work as more then friends. He understood that. But he is glad that they tried. He misses their friendship and wants to see her again because he is still in love with her and this song is a way of telling her that he will always be there for her.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about someone very close to him dying. Whichwouldbe why he said "I must wake up from my sleep". Whoever died cannot wake up, and they can't hear him (as he mentions in the song).
