He lost everything with the one he loved. His world went to pieces. But he is willing to forget it all and throw it away so that he can just be with her again. He...
This is the start of something beautiful
This is the start of something new
You are the one who'd make me lose it all
You are the start of something new, ooh

And I'll throw it all away
And watch you fall into my arms again
And I'll throw it all away
Watch you fall, now

You are the earth that I will stand upon
You are the words that I will sing

And I've thrown it all away
And watched you fall into his arms again
And I thrown it all away
Watched you fall, now

And take me back
Take me home
Watch me fall
Down to earth
Take me back for

This is the start of something beautiful
You are the start of something new

    Song MeaningThis song makes me cry every time. He lost everything with the one he loved. His world went to pieces. But he is willing to forget it all and throw it away so that he can just be with her again. He realises that she is all he had left and because of everything that went wrong he lost site of it. He needs her so badly, he can't even stand without her. But it's too late. She has gone. And he wants to start something new with her. Something beautiful. He needs her to bring him back down to earth. He has wondered so far and is so hopelessly lost.

    MemoryThis reminds me of me and my fiancee, as cheesy as that sounds. I was THAT girl. When we were young, high school age, (We've been dating for a long time.) I had nursed a crush since we were little. (His name is scribbled all over my fifth grade journals.) Then somehow I got his attention in tenth grade, but this scumbag who I'd had feelings for a few months had told me he was in love with me, so I left my current fiancee for this scumbag. He was not a good guy. Kinda messed me up a lot.

    But I hear this, and it makes me think of my fiancee and how I broke his heart as I fell into the other guy's arms. He took me back even after I had left him for another guy. I had no idea how hard my fiancee had fallen for me. We had gone on a few non exclusive dates, and I just thought we were good friends. Then, after I finally got the strength to leave the scumbag, my fiancee was there to pick me up. He showed me what it really meant to love. We've been together ever since, and we are now about to graduate college.

    As you can tell, this song makes me think of my fiancee's perspective. It also makes me think of our first time, all gentle and sweet and beautiful....even if it was awkward.
