Joking every year
It's an anniversary
You spoke and made it clear
You're the only one you'll ever need
But now you're starting to notice
Without me, it comes into focus

Nothing you'll be
Will stop you missing me
So fill your life with promises
That we'll never have to keep
And I know someday you'll be wishing you kept one for me

Take your medicine
If it helps to let me go
Dissolve the guilt and then
Tell yourself you're better off alone
Searching for something
(Searching for something)
Tell me, how is that working out?

Nothing you'll be
Will stop you missing me
So fill your life with promises
That you'll never have to keep
And I know someday you'll be wishing you kept one for me

Nothing you'll be
Will stop you missing me
So fill your life with promises
That you'll never have to keep

Nothing you'll be
Will stop you missing me
So fill your life with promises
That you'll never have to keep
And I know someday you'll be wishing you kept one for me

    My InterpretationBased on the lyrics, I believe that this song is obviously about a girl, and how now that he is gone, she misses him.
    Back when they were together, they always said they would do something or whatever as most couples do, and she or they never kept good on that promise.
    so he is saying, "And I know someday, you'll wish you kept one for me" because he knew she would miss him, and they have nothing to go back on, or any reason to see each other again.

    Amazing song too, probably my favourite off of When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes.
    love the album name too haha
