The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah...

I'm open, your closed
Where I follow you'll go
I worry I wont see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometime
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I
Collide

I'm quiet, you know
You make a first impression
I've found I'm scared to know I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I
Collide

Don't stop here
I lost my place
I'm close behind

Well even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find you and I collide
Finally find you and I collide
You finally find you and I collide

    To me the song portrays a relationship between two people that come from two totally different worlds and have lived two different lives, yet they still have one thing in common – they are in love with each other. Not distance, differences or circumstances of life can pull them apart in their hearts. That is how strong their passion is for each other. It is inevitable for them to collide and unite. The relationship between these two people does not make sense, but yet it somehow finds a way to work. The words “even the best fall down sometimes and even the wrong words seem to rhyme” are examples of things that do not make sense, but still happen. So in the song, even though the two people are opposite and the relationship should not work, it somehow does. I believe this is the meaning because i am currently experiencing this situation. You know who you are if you are reading this. I love you bh with all my heart. From kk.
