I get a little bit better every day
It's safe to say most things have changed
I see the world just a little bit clearer now
But can't deny I still feel strange
I used to know a boy who used to think he knew himself
That shuffled soul's still re-arranged
She smiled and told him that I like you just the way you are
It's just the way you are need's change

Things are feeling pretty smooth here in Hollywood
I still feel dizzy in these hills
New York City's screaming soulless little lullabies
The pavement holds prescription pills
Please girl sleep assured, tonight you're only worrying
I can't imagine how that feels
Just smile and hold on to our precious little memories
And just know one day that we will…
We'll go on and on

It meant the most from every corner of every coast that I'd seen
The eastern seaboard tides were singing me to sleep

I get a little bit closer every day
I'd like to think you're closer too
The worlds not wide enough to find a place to lay my head
If I can't lay it next to you
You'll blame it on the way we're wired and I'm detached again
You always reel me through that truth
If I could find a way for you just to believe in me
The same way I believe in you

It meant the most from every corner of every coast that I'd seen
The eastern seaboard tides were singing me to sleep
Let's roll the windows down and keep this thing in drive
Because were alive

I was on the verge of making since of something I held closer
Than anything I had ever held before

It meant the most from every corner of every coast that I'd seen
The eastern seaboard tides were singing me to sleep
Let's roll the windows down and keep this thing in drive
Because we're alive

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs ever written it reflects the one person in our lives that we fell inlove with but couldn't get it right, it's a song about the self reflection we go through when we lose someone we love. How you can be far away and think of the person no matter where you are or what you do.

    "I get a little bit better every day
    It's safe to say most things have changed
    I see the world just a little bit clearer now
    But can't deny I still feel strange
    I used to know a boy who used to think he knew himself
    That shuffled soul's still re-arranged
    She smiled and told him that I like you just the way you are
    It's just the way you are need's change"

    This verse talks about the process of learning to deal with change but not feeling strange because everything is very much different now thinking you had everything figured out until you have to find your self again and remebering all the things the person liked about you.

    "Things are feeling pretty smooth here in Hollywood
    I still feel dizzy in these hills
    New York City's screaming soulless little lullabies
    The pavement holds prescription pills
    Please girl sleep assured, tonight you're only worrying
    I can't imagine how that feels
    Just smile and hold on to our precious little memories
    And just know one day that we will…
    We'll go on and on"

    This next verse talks about how you can start to gain comfort in the distance and slowly accept your new way without your significant other, but at night you have a hard time escaping the memories and using pills to help with your depression or insomnia that keeps you from sleeping well, lastly keeping a positive attitude about the situation.

    "I get a little bit closer every day
    I'd like to think you're closer too
    The worlds not wide enough to find a place to lay my head
    If I can't lay it next to you
    You'll blame it on the way we're wired and I'm detached again
    You always reel me through that truth
    If I could find a way for you just to believe in me The same way I believe in you"

    This next verse talks about how you can be closer to figuring out your self and what you want and how you wonder if that other person feels the same but that person says "we aren't compatible" which is the line "You'll blame it on the way we're wired and I'm detached again" you start to become detached again with your self and belive that it might not meant to be and hope he/she belives in you as much as you believe in them.

    "It meant the most from every corner of every coast that I'd seen
    The eastern seaboard tides were singing me to sleep
    Let's roll the windows down and keep this thing in drive
    Because were alive"

    These are my favorite lines because i remember taking random drives in the summer with my ex on the highway with the windows down and the music loud and how "alive" we were.

    Hope this helps.
