"Droplets" as written by Jason Reeves and Colbie Caillat....
I'm leaving you
I'm not sure if that's what I should do
It hurts so bad
I'm wanting you but can't go back
Trying to find, find
That all elusive piece of mind
Stuck here somehow
I'm shrouded beneath my fear and doubt
And I don't need it

Cause I'm walkin' down this road alone
And figured all I'm thinking 'bout is you, is you my love
My head is in a cloud of rain and the world it seems so far away
And I'm just waiting for the droplets, droplets

You left a mark
I wear it proudly on my chest
Above my heart
To remind me that I feel the best
When I'm with you
Everything is effortless
You know it's true
My eyes are painted with regret and I don't need it

Cause I'm walkin' down this road alone
And figured all I'm thinking 'bout is you, is you my love
And my head is in a cloud of rain and the world it seems so far away
And I'm just waiting to fall and sink into your skin

You are like the raindrops, the raindrops falling down on me

So you left a mark (you left a mark)
She left a mark (he left)
She left (he left)
She left a mark
And I don't (I don't)
Need it. (Need it)

    My InterpretationOkay, so, I'm basically obsessed with this song and I feel like it's about a long distance relationship and how it's not working out for the girl.

    "I'm leaving you
    I'm not sure if that's what I should do
    It hurts so bad
    I'm wanting you but can't go back
    Trying to find, find
    That all elusive piece of mind
    Stuck here somehow
    I'm shrouded beneath my fear and doubt
    And I don't need it"

    Meaning: is obvious. Her insecurities are eating her alive, but she's not sure of what she wants because she's over-thinking everything because of how much she misses him.

    "Cause I'm walkin' down this road alone
    And figured all I'm thinking 'bout is you, is you my love
    My head is in a cloud of rain and the world it seems so far away
    And I'm just waiting for the droplets, droplets"

    Meaning: She feels like she's apart from him (walking..alone) both physically and emotionally and doesn't know what to do. She's trapped with her thoughts (my head...away) and she's waiting for herself to figure out what she wants to do in this relationship-if she should end it or not (the decision = the droplets, because when the droplets fall, the 'cloud of rain' will go away).

    "You left a mark
    I wear it proudly on my chest
    (Above my heart)
    To remind me that I feel the (best
    When I'm with you)
    To me, everything is effortless
    (You know it's true)
    My eyes are painted with (regret) and I (don't need it)"

    Okay, so I think this should be taken as two different meanings for the two different singers (and i parenthesized what she sings).

    So, for him: He loves her and he remembers that even when he's far from her because of the 'mark' that she's left on him. He feels like the relationship is effortless and easy because of this. However, his one regret is having to leave her, but he knows he doesn't 'need it' because it's what's best for him and he really believes they'll make it out.

    For her: She's trying to remind herself that she feels good around him, that this is worth it. I think this is when she's made her decision to leave him, and she thinks she shouldn't regret it because she feels like he's happy with where he's at in life (which he is).

    "Cause I'm walkin' down this road alone
    And (figured all I'm thinking 'bout is you), is you (my love)
    And my head is in a cloud of rain and (the world it seems so far away
    And I'm just waiting to fall and sink into your skin)"

    So, this is his chorus: He's living his life physically away from her (I'm...alone). and when she's singing with him, it's a representation of the fact that she's all he's thinking about. When his head is crazy, he thinks of her and the rest of the world disappears, and he's just waiting to see her again (I'm...skin).

    "You are like the raindrops, the raindrops falling down on me"

    For him: She is everywhere and soothes him.
    For her: The decision has been made/the droplets have fallen and she knows that she needs to end their relationship now.

    "So you left a mark (you left a mark)"

    For him: He knows how much he loves her and is unaware of her decision yet.
    For her: She's sad that he left such a mark on her because she knows she wants to get rid of it.

    "She left a mark (he left)
    She left (he left)"

    For him: he says 'she' this time, he's not singing to her anymore. she has now left him and he's hurting.
    For her: She's realized that he's not only gone physically now, but emotionally too.

    "And I don't (I don't)
    (need it)"

    For him: He doesn't need this mark, because he knows (still) how much he loves her.
    For her: She doesn't need it because she sees it as a burden-a reminder that she hurt someone she loved.
