Just a song before I go,
To whom it may concern.
Travelling twice the speed of sound
It's easy to get burned.

When the shows were over
We had to get back home,
And when we opened up the door
I had to be alone.

She helped me with my suitcase,
She stands before my eyes
Driving me to the airport,
And to the friendly skies
.

Going through security
I held her for so long.
She finally looked at me in love,
And she was gone.

Just a song before I go,
A lesson to be learned.
Travelling twice the speed of sound
It's easy to get burned.

    You don't need to write "your meaning": with a great song like this. It's actually kind of insulting to the artist and it could mean a hundred things for a hundred people, that's what makes it a great song and not just an okay song. And if must know... It's how he sings it too.
