"November" as written by and Marc Johnson John Abercrombie....
So I'm waiting for this test to end
So these lighter days can soon begin
I'll be alone by maybe more carefree
Like a kite that floats so effortlessly

I was afraid to be alone
Now I'm scared that's how id like to be
All the faces none the same
How can there be so many personalities

So many lifeless empty hands
So many hearts in great demand
And now my sorrow seems to far away
Until I'm taken by these bults of pain

But I turn them off and tuck them away
Till these rainy days that make them stay
And then ill cry so hard to these sad songs
And the words still ring, once here now gone

And they echo through my head everyday
And I don't think they'll ever go away
Just like thinking of your childhood home
But we can't go back were on our own

Oh
But I'm about to give this one more shot
And find it in myself
I'll find it in myself

So were speeding towards that time of year
To the day that marks your not here
And I think ill want to be alone
So please understand that I don't answer the phone

I'll just sit and stare at my deep blue walls
Until I can see nothing at all
Only particles some fast some slow
All mys can see is all I know

Oh
But I'm about to give this one more shot
And find it in myself
I'll find it in myself

    General CommentWow... just heard this song today and it has left me speechless, I've been listening to it over and over because it expresses my emotional situation totally in a mysterious way... I think it is about the hard process and decision of letting go of a relationship, of someone that you really love and care about but with whom it just doesn't go any further... "I used to be afraid to be alone- now I'm scared that's how I'd like to be".. It is very difficult to know that you are at a stage that you'd rather be alone and "alone but more carefree, like a kite floating effortlessly" but to not know how to leave someone that has been special in your life, and things are not completely shattered but broken enough... This song touches me, it's about love, loss, and new beginnings full of pain but yet necessary and yearned..

    General CommentThis is a lovely song. There is numerous meanings to this, but obviously it is about love. It's a very beautiful song, and Maria's voice is angelic. It comforts me on rainy days for some reason. I like to wrap in a blanket, and listen to this when it rains.
    Such a lovely song.

    General Commentthis song represents to me,when everythng goes wrong for so long you just want to lock yourself in your own mind, and let everybod else out so they can hurt you and you hurt them back.

    General Commentto me this song is about feeling so alone but not in a bad way...'i was afraid to be alone, now im scared thats how id like to be' i imagine someone sitting inside looking out on a rainy day...feeling thoughtful and depressed thinking about all the things she has lost or is missing in her life and wishing she could have her innocene and childhood back..its an optimistic song in a way coz she says 'i will find it in myself' to get her life back on track...leave behind her past...this is probably wrong but its just how i feel when i listen to it

    General CommentMy best friend/first boyfriend/first person I loved more than my own life killed himself on November 2nd, 2006.
    I hate everything about November for that exact reason.

    This song makes me cry my fucking eyes out until there's no tears left.
    I absolutely love it, though.

    To me, it's about the death of someone very close to the speaker and the aftermath. All the pain and sadness that is felt when you lose someone you love. This song is so beautiful.

    General Commentthis song is me ... its me in a song. i cant explain it better than that. everything about this song is me. its the kind of thing that you could just lay there and stare out and listen to this one song over and over again and do nothing else forever. that is this song. this is an amazing song by an amazing band.
