Dear
I
You

Way back in September
I boarded the train.
Neon lights guiding me
Far from where I came.

I know you can't remember
How this came to be
That you and I would pass the hours
Talking aimlessly.

Autumn brought you to me.
Speed from land to sea.
Land to sea and back again
And now there's only me
Alone.

Tryin' to get through to you, my dear.
Oh, my angel, I'm
Tryin' to get through to you.

Dawn broke out the window.
The glass filled up with pink.
You held my hand and told me,
"Try hard not to think."
You probably can't picture
The look that's in my eyes,
But I will never forget
The heartache of your sighs.

The slow train brought you to me.
Fast train sent you back,
Sent you far from me and I'm
Alone.

Tryin' to get through to you, my dear.
Oh, my angel, I'm
Tryin' to get through to you, my dear.
Oh, my angel, I'm
Tryin' to get through to you.

Tryin' to get through to you.

    General CommentThis band is so beautiful and i want to hear more of them! i'm assuming this song is about trying to win a person back that won't listen and just left? no clue, but this band is amazing.

    My Interpretationi think its about a girl having a good friendship with a boy and he wants more and befriends her and she wants to let him know that she cares for him alot.

    General Commenti think it's about the singer liking someone who she used to be close with but maybe not in an actual relationship with but she's always wanted a relationship with them and she still does but she can't somehow get through to him and she knows he doesn't really feel the same way about her as she does about him.lack of punctuation there soz.
