You were a castaway from New Orleans
Fought the world to find your dreams, oh yeah
Almost starved to death, cuz you had no money
Sold your soul for blood and honey, oh yeah
Cars crash and we collide as the siren sings the saddest song tonight
And this is it, how it all comes down
To the love you would leave the streets of your home town

At the edge of the rest of your life
At the end of a one way road
I was losing everything
And tonight may never shine
If you never open your eyes
I keep this heart right next to mine

I was a cast away from New Orleans
Fought the world to find my dreams, oh yeah
Your heart had to let me go
Now I'd rather die than ever be alone, oh yeah

At the edge of the rest of your life
At the end of a one way road
I was losing everything
And tonight may never shine
If you never open your eyes
I keep this heart right next to mine

At the edge of the rest of your life
At the end of a one way road
I was losing everything
And tonight may never shine
If you never open your eyes
I keep this heart right next to mine
At the edge of the rest of your life
At the end of a one way road
And tonight may never shine
If you never open your eyes
I keep this heart right next to mine

    General Commentwhen i first saw the title of the song, i thought of the siren from greek mythology. this creature had the head of a woman & the body of a bird and enchanted sailors to wreck their ships on the dangerous rocks surrounding their island by singing beautifully. refer to homer's odessy for more on sirens.

    to me, the lead singer is referring to a girl who broke his heart (your heart had to let me go). i don't necessarily see a car crash in the lyrical meaning, but more of a flee from reality (now i'd rather die than ever be alone).

    it reminds me of the time i was first dumped. i hopped in my car & started driving just to ease my mind. anywayz, that's my whole take on this song.
