I feel the day is arriving soon
When I can't stay around anymore
They'll look in all the familiar rooms
Until they feel the breeze through the door

Then they can say it's the company that I keep
So they never have to believe in the tears I weep

I'm gonna surprise them all
When they look and I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm gonna surprise them all
Because I've already moved along

You can stay if you have to do
It's got to be your own decision
But someday I will be back for you
And then you better not refuse me again

Cause one more chance is all I'll promise to provide
And circumstances choose for those who can't decide

I'm gonna surprise them all
When they look and I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm gonna surprise them all
Because I've already moved along
Already moved along

I'm gonna surprise them all
When they look and I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm gonna surprise them all
Because I've already moved along
Already moved along

    this reminds me of when i moved out of my home town, escaping all the stupidity and monotony that was bogging me down. it also makes me think of just being stuck in situations, and how shocked some people are when they find out someone leaves a situation they've been in for so long.<p><b><i>Edited by delial on May 28 2008, at 03:19AM</i></b></p>

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
