You packed your last two bags.
A taxi's 'round the bend.
You used to laugh out loud,
But you can't remember when.
You lost your lies.
It's like you're moving out of time,
And the whole world crumbles right beneath you.

So I might've made a few mistakes,
But that was back when you would smile,
And we would go everywhere,
But we ain't been there for awhile.
And this I know,
There's a place that we can go-
A place where I can finally let you know.

'Cause I'm the one that loves you lately.
You and me, we got this great thing.
And we're the only one's that around,
And we're the only one's that around this Babylon.

I hope you find whatever you've been lookin' for.
Just remember where you're from and who you are,
'Cause there's a thousand lights that'll make you feel brand new,
But if you ever lose your way, I'll leave one on for you.

'Cause I'm the one that loves you lately.
You and me, we got this great thing.
So come back, get here, sit down. Relax.
Everything's to see that you've come a long, long way,
And it's the place that you should be.

'Cause I'm the one that loves you lately.
You and me, we got this great thing.
'Cause I'm the one that loves you lately.
You and me, we got this great thing.
And we're the only one's that around,
We're the only one's that around this Babylon.

    To me i think this song is written toward someone who is going far in life, and leaving and the person doesnt want the person going away to forget about them and how much that they love them. They dont want this person to forgot who they are and they want them to stick to their roots and not to get lost in a new world and not to forget about everything else.
