When we go through tough times, we feel depressed, lonely and helpless. I feel like with Gregs lyrics, he's saying that we're not alone, and that it's normal to feel sad sometimes, it's ok not to be ok. "It comes and goes in waves", good things comes and goes, so does bad things, heartache doesn't last forever, but sometimes you will be sad, that's just life, but Greg is comforting us with the thought that it will pass, when maybe we feel it never will. I must say, I think this is the best song he's written, atleast to me. It's deep and beautiful, just pure genius. I always listen to it when I'm sad and it helps, very relatable.

I think, rather than someone who is going through a heartbreak, is more about someone who searches time and time again for love, only to come up short each time--"the ones who seek and find/only to be let down/time after time". Very relatable. They don't know why it never works out, but they can't get over the idea of love, so they keep going after it, confident they will find it someday.

To me this song is about a man who gave everything he could to the love of his life, but his harrowing call goes unheeded as she draws him to false conclusions and is unseeing of his feelings. He leads himself in circles and is aware of what is happening " i wonder why, why i try" but can't seem to break his mind from the idea of love "this one's for believing, if only for its sake". This songs ambiance screams of the pain of unrequited love and its toll on the soul. (to first comment: this is also a very possible solution).

I think this is about not giving up, about pushing forward even when things are really bad. That's why it begins with "this one's for the torn down, the experts at the fall" and ends with "this is for the ones who stand, for the ones who try again". And the falling ans the standing comes and goes because that's life - but you still try and think you can and you look for better days.
