"Odessa" as written by and Daniel Victor Snaith....
Taking it slow, saving up she
Before she knows it, all I ask before she goes home
She's tired of cryin' and sick of his lies
She's suffered him for far too many years of her life

Feeling low, and scared that he'll say
Do you know how over time you drove her away
Saving up for, the day when she goes
The day that she stands up
For everything that she chose

(She can say, she can say, she can say
She can say, she can say, she can say
Who knows what shes gonna say)

Saving up for, the day when she goes
The day that she stands up
For everything that she chose
Takin' the kids, drivin' away
Turn around the life she let him siphon away

And I've been with you, for all of these years
Tell you what I've got to show for all of my tears
The times you hurt me, and treated me wrong
Something had to give to stop this thing from going on

(She can say, she can say, she can say
She can say, she can say, she can say
Who knows what shes gonna say)

(She can say, she can say, she can say
She can say, she can say, she can say
Who knows what shes gonna say)

She's tired of crying, and sick of his lies
She's suffered him for far too many years of her life
And feeling low, and scared that he'll say
Do you know how over time you drove her away

    General CommentTo me could be referred to the end of a marriage. Everyone always thinks to know everything about the person he/she is married with. And when the other person suddenly leaves you, you just loose alla your certainties and you feel like are not able to interpretate him/her anymore. You wonder what she' s gonna say now (she can say she can say she can say who knows what she's gonna say)

    General CommentGreat song, I reckon it's about this girl who's in this relationship in which she's treated like complete shit but she's too scared to speak up for herself until now "who knows what she's gonna say".

    General Commentcaribou's talking about his former girl...who is currently with somone else
    however, in that newer relation she is miserable, hence...

    "Saving up to, the day when she goes
    The day that she stands up for everything that she chose"

    she was prob coerced by others to leave the former guy and be in an entirely new relationship, but...

    he is saving up the memories and more until she decides to end the current and go back to her true love.

    My InterpretationI think it is a guys crush so to speak is in an abusive relationship and is finally standing up for herself.
