It's so soft, to see the glow from the city up ahead
connect my hert to the rhythm it's lead
straight forward and ready 'cause I'm on my way home
it's so good, to be alive in such a hazardous world
to be alive and see the victory unfurled
I'm anxious and waiting 'cause I'm on my way home

yeah, your war is won (3x)
oh my friend you're finally done.

on that day, you'll find ambitions don't lie here anymore
the one you love has gone and settled the score
what more could you ask for now
it's so good, to be alive in such a wonderful year
to be alive and see the end of your fear
with peace in your ear 'cause you're on your way home

yeah, your war is won (3x)
oh my friend you're finally done.

and all this time
we walk the line through pain
and giving in to you
but now its gone
so we'll move on and know
that this is not the end

on that simple night, when we've all lost our sight, you believevd in what i said
from those cursed beginnings to those blessed blessed ends
in between we've found our way to live

yeah, your war is won (3x)
oh my friend you're finally done. (2x)

    This song is so beautiful. I didn't get to go to Warped Tour with my boyfriend, so I just sat around all day and listened to this song. The vidjeo is kinda funny, it's like braveheart except with little kids. I can't believe nobody has commented on sucha awesome song.

    Such a great song by a great band. I saw them at Warped where they played on like a 5 inch stage with 4 people watching but after awhile gathered a really big following and stole the show from the other bands playing around them. This song is probably the best song off the c.d. besides "Perfect Mess". They remind me of Something Corporate. Both are awesome piano rock bands. This is such a perfect song. Beautiful

    This song is absolutely beautiful. I got to see them when they came and played here. At first I was a little skeptical, but then I really got into them. They're an amazing band.

    I think of the war in Iraq when i hear this song, and all the people who are able to come back. This song also makes me really sad about how some people never get to come back and everything there doing for us, and how they shouldnt be over there in the first place.

    I really like this song though, as it was the first song i heard by melee. Ever since ive been hooked.

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"

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
