I'm over being stuck
With these words that don't mean much
I know now that it seems
When these words fail, this music speaks
Hold us back in time
You know I'll be alright

I'm an entire world away
From the girl that owns my dreams
At night I close my eyes
And I'm stuck inside this life
But you'll come back with time
You know we'll be alright

I can't forget...

All the days, that we'd say
When the stars inside our eyes collide
That's when we know to decide
To slide away
To chase the stars
Cause I miss the nights we felt alive
You and I just needed time

Been trying to fix a way
And the rain just means one thing
A chance I can't believe
It's ok, just go back to sleep
Cause you'll come back in time
You know I'll be alright

I can't forget...

All the days, that we'd say
When the stars inside our eyes collide
That's when we know to decide
To slide away
To chase the stars
Cause I miss the nights we felt alive
You and I just needed time

Focus, I can't forget now
Whoa, this is such a let down
I'd fix by teaching this crowd
We just can't live without

All the days, that we'd say
You know I won't forget

All the days, that we'd say
When the stars inside our eyes collide
That's when we'd know to decide
To slide away
To chase the stars
Cause I miss the nights we felt alive
You and I just needed time

    Song MeaningIf you don't know this, Shane (the singer) has had a rough time.
    His girlfriend died, and he was obviously deeply in love with her.

    I'm over being stuck
    With these words that don't mean much
    I know now that it seems
    When these words fail, this music speaks= he doesn't know how to express himself except in music

    Been trying to fix a way
    And the rain just means one thing
    A chance I can't believe= he feels that rain is coming from above, and he feels closer to her when it rains.

    All the days, that we'd say
    When the stars inside our eyes collide
    That's when we know to decide
    To slide away
    To chase the stars
    Cause I miss the nights we felt alive= they would dream of better things and he misses it

    Focus, I can't forget now
    Whoa, this is such a let down
    I'd fix by teaching this crowd
    We just can't live without
    All the days, that we'd say
    You know I won't forget= he's starting to forget, and he's trying his hardest not to. and he's promising her she won't be forgotten.
