"Flow" as written by and Christopher Lee Carver....
Let it break but don’t stray
You know I’ll wait for you
It’ll be messy but we might pull through
It’s a little strange for us to part ways
But I understand what you need to do
And it’s a little hard ‘cause I’ve known it from the start
So how can I be mad at you?

It’s only lonely when evening turns to night

Then my head will rest where yours belongs
Your sheets will hold me while your hands are gone
And sleep won’t be easy I’m crazy I know
But I just flow, flow

They say the feeling goes away and moving on is the best thing to do
But your clock, your lamp, your pillow case
Your desk, your chair cant be replaced
So I’m constantly reminded of you

My head will rest where yours belongs
Your sheets will hold me while your hands are gone
And sleep won’t be easy I’m crazy I know
But I just flow, flow

Take back the words you said to me
‘Cause right now I just cant feel a thing
With an ocean in between
Relieve me of my dependency
Tell me it’s done so I can leave
Just let me go

And flow
Just flow
Flow
Flow

My head will rest where yours belongs
Your sheets will hold me while your hands are gone
And sleep won’t be easy I’m crazy I know
But I just flow, flow

    General CommentFirst off, I'd just like to say that this song is one of my all-time favorites! It's so deep and her voice is so mesmerizing, it literally makes me ache hearing it.

    The lyrics are pretty direct, but could be said for different situations. Above all, the girl is just heartbroken because she can't be with the one she loves. She's in a long distance relationship because her partner had a job or something along those lines(ei: with an ocean in between, i'll wait for you, but I understand what you need to do, and it's a little hard cause I've known it from the start,
    So how can I be mad at you) that's crumbling, and it just kills her because before he left, he promised her that nothing would change and their love would always remain. There's nothing left in the relationship except them actually saying it's over aloud (ei: tell me it's done so I can leave, just let me go).

    It can also be taken as this girl who's going through a break-up and she's just going crazy and missing her partner so much.

    General CommentThis song is purely a reality for so many people. Couples that share such deep feelings for each other but circumstances like, careers, different stages of lie, age, different cities keep them apart. Its better walking around with a heavy heart than pretending that you don't care and trying to make yourself get over them. I'd rather wait for them, even if they don't show up than having to put myself out there and be with someone who just doesn't feel right. Every day I'll wait for a train that may never come.
