inside it's lonely
i drive my car
pass by the signs that speak our past
always remind me
can't block it out
the story we all knew would last
she was lost yesterday
far far away
familiar faces
annually haunt me
the cold brings seasons of the heart
always reminded
can't block it out
no one could see it from the start
she was lost yesterday
far far away

    General CommentThis seems to be about a girl (interesting for an all-male band to write from that perspective - could the song be about someone they know?) who is running from her past mistakes, past life, past problems, seeking answers to all her questions. It is also possible that the band was using the word "lost" here with a double meaning: the obvious one, in that she was lost while driving; and the metaphorical meaning, in that she was lost on life's road, and also lost spiritually.

    General CommentI've been wondering what is that meaning of

    "she was lost yesterday
    far far away"

    for several years.

    It seems to me that spiritual HAIKU lyric. Don't you think so?

    General CommentThis is a cryptic song, written in a way that's interesting to speculate on. Here's my take...

    I think the voice in the verses is that of a woman who's driving to her family's home where she grew up for Christmas.
    "... I drive my car, pass by the signs that speak our past"
    "familiar faces annually haunt me; the cold brings seasons of the heart"

    Although Christmas is normally a nice time for family, it sounds like there's baggage in this woman's past with her family. Maybe abuse that's been covered up ("no one could see it from the start"). This seems likely, given how the past seems to constantly be with her in such a negative way ("can't block it out").

    To me, the subject matter is grim, but the power of the lyrics here is incredible. With just a few words, they've captured the complicated tension of a grown woman's feelings as she's traveling home to visit a family whose past haunts her still.
