"At Least It Was" as written by and Emiliana/carey Torrini....
I thought I saw you on the train
I hid behind some men
I had never seen you look so good
I'm glad you're doing well

I went out for a walk today
To think of things unsaid
Of course I found I'd said too much
So I laid all that to rest

And when the day falls
I guess it was love
And when the day falls
At least it was

You thought of the name to call me
I guess that's how it goes
I know a few with the same name
Yes, I'm sad I'm one of those

Ungraceful as I am in loving
And leaving I'm the same
It's way too late to say I'm sorry
But I'll say it anyway

And when the day forwards
I guess it was love
And when the day forwards
At least it was

Dumb dumb dumb dumb

    General CommentIt's a song about two people who couldn't be together. The person talking in it did something to end it, whether intentionally or unintentionally. The other person has moved on, gone on with his life. The speaker is still having trouble admitting it was love even though she's taking some comfort in the fact that is was.

    Beautiful song. Reminds me of a very beautiful person.

    General CommentIt doesn't sound like 'forwards' to me, it sounds like 'falls' again. What would 'when the day forwards' mean?

    General Commentthis is a real cool song. i think its just about an ex and what you're supposed to think about them afterward. yeah, its over, but it wasnt all bad. you know? like i guess it was love, but its all good now, at least it happened. i think "the name to call me" would be something like "honey or babe, or w/e." the dum dum dums are the best part of the song.

    General Commentlookalongwithme.. I have to disagree I don't think the name carries a good conotation, I believe it is a negative name. its revealed in the following lines "Yes, I'm sad I'm one of those" the other person was upset about the breakup and thought of a name to call her...and she merely accepts it partly blaming herself for the break up having said too much and being "ungraceful" in her departure.

    SJTM..I also think it says "falls"

    Personally this is one of those songs that I feel a real connection with as if the song was about me and a guy that I broke up with...you know the feeling you get when you bump into an ex bf/gf and you see how great they are doing without you not jealousy but a sort of remorseful nostalgia...and I'm sure that many other people can relate to this song as well.

    General Commentyes I agree with mushaboom.

    it's about seeing someone you were once with,
    missing them, and knowing you still care.

    mixed feelings, about love, though it didn't work out.
    not denying the feeling of it.

    and the other person a name to call: perhaps .."ex"

    General CommentThe exact feeling and the meaning is what that i'm having till now and it's been 3 months by now. It's an absolutely brilliant song, speaking for two people who couldn't be together, one have been moved on, the other is still.
    Makes me sad everytime when i hear... *sigh*
