"Daylight Fading (Demo)" as written by Daniel John Vickrey, Ben Mize, Matthew Malley, Charles Gillingham, David Bryson and Adam Duritz....
Waiting for the moon to come and light me up inside
And I am waiting for the telephone to tell me I'm alive
Well I heard you let somebody get their fingers into you
It's getting cold in California
I guess I'll be leaving soon

Daylight fading
Come and waste another year
All the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
Moonlight creeping around the corners of our lawn
When we see the early signs that daylight's fading
We leave just before it's gone

She said "Everybody loves you,"
She says, "Everybody cares"
But all the things I keep inside myself
They vanish in the air
If you tell me that you'll wait for me
I'll say I won't be here
I want to say goodbye to you
Goodbye to all my friends
Goodbye to everyone I know

Daylight fading
Come and waste another year
All the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
Moonlight creeping around the corners of our lawn
When we see the early signs that daylight's fading
We leave just before it's gone

    General CommentAlot more clear than the final version of daylight, but also less mysterious and concise... the other version sounds more like poetry, which is why i suspect duritz chose it.

    The girl has either dumped him or made him feel betrayed somehow so that he wants no part of her, so he's "waiting for the one"... she leaves as soon as she sees the signs of the smallest troubles -- a fair weather girlfriend?

    new idea--- prehaps he WANTS to say goodbye to her, but can't? ("she's gone to california, maybe I'll go out there too")... wierd... ideas?
