Gone so long
My eyes open to the sound of a song I've heard
Don't know the name, but I know all the words
Sun came up, crawled into the front seat
Memories leaving me, was it all a dream I had?
Time for us to wake up...
I'll save my words to make the most of it
I never meant to be gone so long
Do you still remember my touch at all?
I never meant to be gone so long
Street lights passing everyone
Gets me a heartbeat closer
To where it started beating
Keep me feling safe and sound
When everything that's right I
S upside down
Was it all a dream I had?
Time for us to wake up
I'll save my words to make the most of it
I never meant to be gone so long
(So long) as I have you I'll be home
I never meant to be gone so long
I'm sorry I made you wait
I wish that I could stay
I live for this, but I'd die for you
The world still moves on.

    My meaning is that he misses this amazing girl he really cared about. He regrets leaving and hopes she still cares...

    Never meaning to be gone so long the love he has for her is still well alive within him. Wondering and pondering his mind night to night he wonders if she remembers him if the love connection is still alive in her as well

    I think this song is saying that he is sorry for being away from her for so long and that he misses her alot and he is wondering if she misses him or remembers him anymore. And he wants to rekindle their love again. And he didn't mean to be gone as long as he was because he feels guilty and alone probably. And he loves her alot

    To me, this song means that the guy singin this is sorry for being away from his gurl and loves her to death. He just wants to be with her right now and misses her. He hopes she still likes him.
