"Widower" as written by and Gregory John Puciato Benjamin Allen Weinman....
You were a face in the crowd
I threw myself onto you
I tried to take you away
I didn't know how to do
But I could not give you the most
Something's I said were never true

Yet still we clung to a ghost
I feel so bad you never knew
I felt like you should know
But I could not tell you so

When you walked away
I breathed your name
As you walked away
As you walked away

We can never get back what we choose to throw away

When you walked away
I breathed your name
As you walked away
As you walked away

We can never get it back what we choose to throw away

I don't know how to hold on to something, that seems determined to crow by the day
Every time, I think I can handle, you only seem to get farther away
I never realized just how hard it was, for a person like me to do
For a person like me to do

When you walked away
I breathed your name
As you walked away
As you walked away

We can never get back what we choose to throw away

When you walked away
I breathed your name
As you walked away
As you walked away

We can never get back what we choose to throw away

I couldn't watch you, wishing for something that seemed more imposable by the day
Every time I saw your expression I only seemed to run farther away
I never realized just how hard this was, for a person like me to do

Obsessed with thoughts that deform
Held on by hope to the one
Crippled because of chains
That eclipse reality
Crushing into truths we all perceive
Without perceiving

I couldn't hold on to, the things that matter to you
It was my big mistake
Thinking there were two roads to take

As you walked away

    My Interpretationwell obviously it's about a relationnship that ended... the guy wasn't able to give the girl what she really wanted, or maybe he was just afraid to give it to her, cause he was overwhelmed by the feelings for her and it scared him away, he was not ready for such a commitment...
    or he just saw that that she wanted something else from life so he let her go, to stop hurting both of them ("I couldn�t watch you, wishing for something that seemed more imposable by the day
    Every time I saw your expression I only seemed to run farther away ")

    General CommentI think it might be "for a person like me to find a person like me, too." Could be wrong, though

    Lyric Correctionnot to nitpick, but I think its "I don't know how to hold on to something, that seems determined to 'grow' by the day".. I'm sure it was just a typo. :)

    My InterpretationI think he means that he is deeply inlove with a girl but is very shy and nervous around her "when you walked away I breathed your name" while at the same time she's inlove with someone else "I couldn't watch you, wishing for something that seemed more impossible by the day" this could possibly be her ex wich would explain the "we can never get back what we choose to throw away" and by the way that she's treating other men opposed to him he is further withdrawing himself "everytime I saw your expression I only seemed to run further away"
