"The Meadow" as written by Jerrad Shain, Chad Benekos, Wes Geer, Doug Boyce, Ben Vaught and Mark Young....
I don't ask why, I just fall into the meadow
I close my eyes , and wait to die
Yes, I am a liar
Yes, I am a sinner
Please forgive my broken soul

But I've got nowhere else to go
They made the world so hard
If I had somewhere else to go
I could be a star like you
Special like you
A star like you
Special like you

And all those picture frames surround you
I saw you in France
All those busters hang around you
I asked you to dance
I can't take you home tonight
No, I can't be your man
I know why you here tonight
You in a fight with your man

But I've got nowhere else to go

    General CommentI cranked the volume and this is what I could hear of what the artist is saying:

    This is an African legend
    It’s a love story
    And uh it’s about uh two people
    They were, they were very much in love
    From different tribes
    And they’re um, they were going to be sacrificed
    And after they died, God made them into elephants
    Because African believe that elephants are immortal
    And then he put, he made the elephants body the system
    Is just the female in the word it symbolizes,
    you know, uh the freedom of love
    and love of flower tell them that the
    abstract beautiful
    that you can see whatever you want to see
    but before the hunters they used to uh,
    to take the elephants youthfully
    and um, he, he, he put the symbol on them
    so that everybody will know that they are hope____
    and this is the story and um ___________________

    General Commentthis song is about a man who just thinks he lost everything. i think that was a woman. special woman. they had only one night. and although it's not possible to meet again, the guy, deep inside his heart dreams and remembers.

    General Commenti agree with warhead. i think the story is kinda that he met her in an art gallery too- the whole "picture frames surround you" bit, maybe the meadow is a painting that reminds him of her?

    General CommentHey I love this song because I feel a bit like this guy.

    Like Warhed said, this guy thinks he lost everything, especially the woman he loves, ("you") which is probably in itself most of his life...

    He should start a new way of life....(a.k.a American beauty movie)

    General CommentI luv this song, I could listen to it non-stop and never get bored of it, but it really upsets me when you actually listen to the words 'coz it makes you think 'bout how this guy knows that he can never see or have the woman again and hes reflecting on the night they did have together

    General CommentThis is one of (hed)'s all-time greatest songs. It's about a guy down on his luck, he's just kinda drifting towards death cuz his girl left him, but yet he'll never die because he's felt this true pure love... It makes me sad and happy at the same time... just chills me to the bone...
