Taken for all it's worth
A couple chords and a few words
Sing our song together
Sing at the top of our lungs

Having met and having me change
Was still the best thing,
Through all these days

'Cause, you live...you learn
And you'll make mistakes
And the writing
Is only a cheap escape
(From the pain)

Well I know I'll never make things right
And I'm fine with this
As long as you sleep well at night
So sleep well at night
'Cause what's been said I surely meant
And I'm happy for you
If you're happy without me
Alright

'Cause, you live...you learn
And you'll make mistakes
And the writing
Is only a cheap escape
(From the pain)

It took losing you
To find me

    General CommentI think the title says a lot. #2 wrote all of these songs and I believe to him, it is his whole life. So, he's writing for his life.

    The actual song seems to be about a break-up, and learning from that relationship.

    "It took losing you, to find me."

    "[...] and I'm happy for you, if you're happy without me."

    Those two point pretty well to it being about a break-up.

    "Cause, you live... you learn, and you make your mistakes"

    That's about learning and growing from everything that happens in life.

    But there's still pain in breaking up, and writing is his only escape from the pain.

    It's definately a positive song, not one that looks to bash the other person or drown itself in sorrow. This is a great song.
