I only have memories of you
We were just kids, we met at a school
And you wrote your name onto my paper bill
And it's been with me for well over ten years

Did I waste too much time?
Did you make up your mind?

I wonder what you are like today
And if I'll ever get to feel your face
If I could go back I'd change a lot of things
And I'd make a butterfly flap it's wings

I'd change our course
I'd change our time
And who knows what things would have been like this time
And maybe one day you will hear this song
I just hope that it won't take too long

Did you make up your mind?
Did I waste too much time?

I just hope that it won't take too long.

    General CommentThe underlined missing lyrics are "butterfly flap it's wings" :)

    Thank god for AmeriSkins using good music and introducing the viewers to it!

    This song is pretty easy to understand. The singer is addressing their grade-school crush, telling them that if he had the chance to go back and change things, he would tell him/her how he felt about them instead of regretting not doing so in the following years. At least, that's what I get from this.

    Translationi don't think it is necessarily "grade-school crush" but rather just that ultra-narcissist finally realizing that the one person who loved them all along (usually the one they thought was kinda pathetic and not at all what they wanted, but also the one they returned to every time they felt wounded) is actually the one they love/want/need. as such, the 1st person in the song is reconsidering, wondering if he/she could change the past, would it make the present or future more optimal?

    My Interpretationalternately, it could actually be more in reference to the newness everyone feels in a relationship that has just begun, and the blindness that is a side-effect of that. we don't notice the flaws because we're caught up in the fascination. so the "did you make up your mind? did i waste too much time?" is kind of a translation to "did you realize i'm not perfect? should i have been trying to convince other people?" but that ultimately boils down to someone not feeling completely sure of themselves and needing reassurance.

    General CommentI like the way everyone sees the meaning of some songs through their own filter.
    Some songs' meanings are pretty obvious, others are completely nonsensical, and still others (like this one) can have an infinite number of meanings, usually very dependent on each listener's experiences.
