I thought I saw you in my head
How'd you slip away again?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
We came so close so many times
Even almost lost my mind
Trying to find you
Trying to find you

How could this city feel so lonely?
It's hard to believe when people tell me

Don't give up when it all comes down
Only things that get lost are found
Just around the corner
Just around the corner
When you don't think you can take no more
You might find what you're searching for
Just around the corner
It's just around the corner, yeah
It's just around the corner

If I knew where you are somehow
I'd be running there right now
No matter how far
No matter how far, yeah

This would be easier if only
I could believe when people tell me

Don't give up when it all comes down
Only things that get lost are found
Just around the corner
Just around the corner
When you don't think you can take no more
You might find what you're searching for
Just around the corner
It's just around the corner, yeah
It's just around the corner, yeah
Just around the corner

I swear the stars look like they're crying
Waiting for love can feel like dying, whoa

Don't give up when it all comes down
Only things that get lost are found
Just around the corner
Just around the corner
When you don't think you can take no more
You might find what you're searching for
Just around the corner
It's just around the corner, yeah
Just around the corner
It's just around the corner, yeah
Just around the corner
It's just around the corner

    Song MeaningTo me this song is about a guy who got in a fight with his girlfriend. They go their separate ways, (not necessarily breaking up) and the guy starts to miss her, and he wants to have her back and to make things up. He feels alone and unhappy, and people are telling him that happiness isn't far away. Rather it's getting back with this girl or something else that could make him happy.

    (I thought I saw you in my head
    How'd you slip away again?)

    He's clearly not over her, and he's troubled by the fight. She's still on his mind all the time.

    (Where did you go?
    Where did you go?)

    She left him, and he's not sure where she's at. All he wants is to have her back.

    (We came so close so many times
    Even almost lost my mind
    Trying to find you
    Trying to find you)

    They've gotten in fights almost this bad in the past, and any time that they were apart, he did anything in his power to find her and get her back.

    (How could this city feel so lonely?
    It's hard to believe when people tell me)

    He feels so alone without the girl that he likes, and it's difficult to see anything positively.

    (Don't give up when it all comes down
    Only things that get lost are found
    Just around the corner
    Just around the corner
    When you don't think you can take no more
    You might find what you're searching for
    Just around the corner
    It's just around the corner, yeah
    It's just around the corner)

    Even though his relationship is in a bad place, and he feels unhappy and alone, he'll find her. He'll be able to fix things and mend the wounds that were made, thus making him happy again.

    (If I knew where you are somehow
    I'd be running there right now
    No matter how far
    No matter how far, yeah)

    If he knew where the girl was, he'd go to her, regardless of the distance.

    (Chorus remains the same)

    (I swear the stars look like they're crying
    Waiting for love can feel like dying, whoa)

    He sees everything in a sad, negative manner. Even stars. And waiting for love hurts, a lot, and that's what he's doing. Waiting for her, his love.


    That's my grasp on the song at least.
