All Time Low – Oh, Calamity lyrics

When I was younger
I was certain
I would be fine without a queen
Just a king inside his castle
With an ocean in between

Now all I do is sit and
Count the miles from you to me
Oh, calamity

We get older by the hour
Watch the changes from afar
Keep forgetting to remember
Where we've been is who we are

Now all I do is wonder
Why we ever set the scene
Oh, calamity

It's such a shame that we play strangers
No act to change what we've become
Damn it's such a shame that we built a wreck out of me
Oh, calamity
Oh, calamity

I'll remembernights alone
Waking up to dial tones
Always found my greatest moment
In the sound of your hello's

Now I struggle to recall
The reasons you would come to leave
Oh, calamity

It's such a shame that we play strangers
No act to change what we've become
Damn it's such a shame that we build a wreck out of me
Oh, calamity
Oh, calamity

If I catch you on the corner
Will you even know it's me?
Will I look familiar to you?
Do you offer me a seat?
Can we find a new beginning?
Do you turn the other cheek?
Oh, calamity

It's such a shame that we play strangers
No act to change what we've become
Damn it's such a shame that we play strangers
No act to change what we've become
Damn it's such a shame that we built a wreck out of me
Oh, calamity
Oh, calamity
Oh, calamity

Come back to me

    A lot of people interpret this song and say that it's about a person who used to think they could live on their own (i.e. without her) and now they've realised that they need her and they miss her a lot, and the relationship was straining both of them. However, to me, this song reminds me of the people who've moved away and I've lost touch with. I think it could be about a long distance relationship/friendship. They thought they might be able to move on without the other person, and realised that they actually miss them too much to move on because she had such a huge impact on them. They wake up to 'dial tones', could be because time zones are different and it's harder to stay in touch, they feel lonely without her. They're scared that in the case that they do meet each other again, they will hardly recognise each other and their friendship/relationship will have been forgotten.
