"Wanna Be" as written by and Brian Dennis Desveaux....
To watch the leaves grow on the trees with you is out of question
I walk into this summer all alone the usual session
You feel your instinct then you act but was it your intention
To leave me down and broken now you've ended our ascension
Yeah

I still can feel the beach sand in my shoes remember when
We talked along the ocean's song 'til blue from black fade in?
But that was then I learned to live without you far within'
I ask you why you're back to try to let me lose again?
You brought me here you wet my taste
You disapear without a trace
It wasn't me who made the call

[Chorus]
'Cause now I want to' be
Where you sleep
Where you laugh
Where you breathe
And I hate to say
Still I sway
Brown your eyes
Gone away

Should I feel some closure I deserve if that atleast
And would you be so kind to show reasons for your release?
You woke me up from a distant past I left behind complete
The message that you sent that night now falls to bittersweet
Was it me, my honesty?
You fail to show I'll never know
It wasn't me who made the call

[Chorus]

Was it me, my honesty?
You failed to show I never know
You brought me here you wet my taste
You disapear without a trace
Did ya think I'd ever lead you wrong?
Just know I'll save all of our moments that we are
Carry on

Still I want to' be
Where you sleep
Where you laugh
Where you breathe
And I hate to say
Still I sway
Brown your eyes
Gone away

Now I want to' be
(Someday you'll wish you never)
Where you sleep
(Someday you'll wish you never)
Where you laugh
(Someday you'll wish you never)
Where you breathe
(Someday you'll wish you never)
(And I hate to say)
(Someday you'll wish you never)
Still I sway
(Someday you'll wish you never)
Brown your eyes
(Someday you'll wish you never)
(Gone away)
(Someday you'll wish you never)

You took it all away
You took it all away

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the CD. It has a great meaning to me. It reminds me of this guy, my first love ya know? No matter how much I got hurt or how far away from me he was, I wanted to always be with him. At times I still do. This part touches me the most:
    should i feel some closure i deserve that at least
    and would you be so kind to show reasons for your release
    you woke me up form a distant past i left behind complete

    "i still can feel the beach sand in my shoes

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song I almost burst into tears. It's an absolutely beautiful song.

    To me it's talking about a guy who's in love with a girl, but she left him. So throughout the song he's singing about how he wants to sleep by her, be near her, hear her laughter once again, and all that stuff.

    Though, that's just me, and I'm probably wrong...

    General CommentTo me this song is my relationship with my ex g/f. I love her to death, i would do anything for her, but I know i need to get over her, and everytime i feel like i am over her, she calls, we hang out, and i feel everything i felt for her all over again and i wanna tell her that i wanna be, where you sleep, where you laugh, where you breathe. and i can't because as much as I hate not being able to really be with her the way I want, if i let her know how much i still care for her, i feel though i might not see her at all, it's like an addiction in a way, i need to feel her even though its killing me not being able to be with her. That's what this song means to me, Alyssa I Love you.

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me. It fits perfectly with my life right now. The very first verse:

    "To watch the leaves grow on the trees with you is out of question. I walk into this summer all alone the usual session. You feel your instinct then you act but was it your intention, to leave me down and broken now you've ended our ascension."

    It almost hurts reading and listening to this song, but I can't stop. This song is so beautiful. The music... The words... They all fit together prefectly. I love this song so much! But... gosh it hurts.

    General Commentfirst nine days is just... AMAZING! I "absolutely" love them and I can't understand why people don't like them so much. well this song is about loving a person you got to know very good, so you always "wanna be" wherever that person is. But then this person you used to love "dissapear without a trace" and he/she lefts you all alone still wishing to be wherever they are! I think the line "Someday you'll wish you never go" is like you know that person will regret what they did to you.

    General CommentIt's about love... well duh.

    Reminds me of my first love... well I still love her. Every time the pain starts to go away we'll end up talking somehow and all my feelings overpower me and I just keep wondering why she had to call me. I just want to be hers and be near her... but she has different plans. Typical break-up song, but beautiful and touching.

    My OpinionA great Song Should have a great melody and fantastic lyrics, and this is ninedays all about.. Thats What I Love most about this band.. Another great Bittersweet song.. For Me, Yeah Its all about Love.. But I believe this situation its quite tricky for this man on this song.. Maybe that girl the one approach him, And then he start to loves her.. But I believe that person maybe already engaged or having someone that she cant do anything about it.. And that man already give up on her and try to move on but sometimes that girl still find him.. Thats Y in this lyric i "ask you why you're back to try to let me lose again".. Anyway this song just like Shakespeare sonnet.. And I admit it, Evertyimr i hear this song, I try my best to hold my tears from drop down. :)
