"No Parade" as written by and Scott Michael/preven Cutler....
I'm already looking back
I'm already looking around
Where did we get off the track
What was it that brought us down

I'm already waking up
How I've been asleep too long
Losing you is hard enough
Not knowing anything was wrong

Changes come but where they go?
You'll never know

Just another day like any other
Nothing in the sky said run for cover
Just another reason never thought it would end this way
There was no parade
No lights flashing
No songs to sing along the way
There was no parade

Boy you were supposed to last
You were never supposed to be
Just somebody in the past
Somebody I used to see

Trouble crept up on us
Warning never came a time
Before I knew it we were dust
Just left behind, left behind

Changes come but where they go?
You'll never know

Just another day like any other
Nothing in the sky said run for cover
Just another reason never thought it would end this way
There was no parade
No lights flashing
No songs to sing along the way
There was no parade
No waves crashing
There was no one else around for days
There was no parade

And after all the noise I never heard our last goodbye
It was silent as a butterfly

There was no parade
No lights flashing
No songs to sing along the way
There was no parade
No waves crashing
There was no one else around for days
There was no parade (no parade)
No parade
No parade

    General CommentFor all of us who didn't see it coming either...
    At the end of the day you don't know how the other person really feels; only what she or he tells you.

    General CommentWas just an ordinary day, nothing really special about it and than that guy tells you how he feels
    You didn't see any signs, nothing could have prepared you for this moment. So what do you do?

    General CommentTotally agree with IWantCake. No one ever really knows how the other person really feel, just what they tell you.

    My InterpretationIt's about a break up that happened so fast they didn't see it coming.

    It's so vivid in those lines:

    "Where did we get off the track
    What was it that brought us down"

    and

    "Trouble crept up on us
    Warning never came a time
    Before I knew it we were dust
    Just left behind, left behind"

    and

    "And after all the noise I never heard our last goodbye
    It was silent as a butterfly"

    "There was no parade" itself means that everything was fine and there was no warning signs or time for one to prep themselves for breaking up or for losing the person they were with, it's so much like funeral parades.

    General CommentIt's about some sort of relationship, romantic or friendship, where it ends unexpectedly and you have no warning.

    Someone I used to be friends with made me feel like that.
