Sir, shake my hand
It's a pleasure to meet you
I'm not trying to waste your time
My name is Miserable & Full of Regret
But I'm trying to change that line

Up in my head are all the times that I've seen you
And wished that you were dead
But one by one, they turn and point at me
Until I wish my demise instead

Because I've heard all the things you say to me
To hold my head high and pick up my feet
But I think you'll agree
I'm not quite ready to go

'Cause we can look up and we can let go
Yeah, we can let go of this tonight
Because we are alive, and we're not alone
I'm finding love within the light

Without a doubt
I am full of hesitation
I'm positive that I'm unsure
That the disease in my lungs that is keeping me from singing
Is so lonely without a cure

Inside my heart
Just a few inches over
I can hear a stronger beat
It's the only thing that keeps me alive
The only thing that drives my feet

Because I've heard what you've said and I figured it out
To hold my head high and just go about
With a smile on my face
Because I know in the end
The sun will come out again

We can look up, we can let go
Yeah, we can let go of this tonight
Because we are alive, and we're not alone
I'm finding love within the light (x2)

I'll say, "I believe you when you tell me there is still a silver lining"
I'll say, "I believe you when i wake up and the sun is brightly shining"

Because I've heard what you've said and I figured it out
To hold my head high and just go about
With a smile on my face
Because I know in the end
The sun will come out again (x2)

We can look up, we can let go
Yeah, we can let go of this tonight
Because we are alive, and we're not alone
I'm finding love within the light (x2)

    General CommentOh my gosh! I can't believe nobody has commented on this. I think it might be about when you're having a bad day or something, just be optimistic cause you know the sun will come out again :) Thats just what I think, I'm probably wrong though. Anyways, love this song! <3

    General CommentI think that this song is about someone falling into depression after breaking up with their girlfriend, and doesn't want to listen to his friends when they try to cheer him up.


    Because I've heard all the things you say to me
    To hold my head high and pick up my feet
    But I think you'll agree
    I'm not quite ready to go

    These lines show he is receiving encouragement from his friends, and ignoring them as he feels she was his only one. These next lines show he has given up on his old girlfriend, and realized there are others.


    Because I've heard what you've said and I figured it out
    To hold my head high and just go about
    With a smile on my face
    Because I know in the end
    The sun will come out again

    We can look up, we can let go
    Yeah, we can let go of this tonight
    Because we are alive, and we're not alone
    I'm finding love within the light (x2)


    The last line, "I'm finding love within the light" also shows that he is now falling in love again, and feels he can give up on his ex.
