Was it you who spoke the words that things would happen but not to me
Oh things are gonna happen naturally
Oh taking your advice and I'm looking on the bright side
And balancing the whole thing
Oh But at often times those words get tangled up in lines
And the bright light turns to night
Oh Until the dawn it brings
Another day to sing about the magic that was you and me

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
And others just read of
Others only read of the love, the love that I love.

See I'm all about them words
Over numbers, unencumbered numbered words
Hundreds of pages, pages, pages for words
More words than I had ever heard and I feel so alive

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
And others just read of
Oh and if you could see me now
Oh love, love

You and I, you and I
Not so little you and I anymore
And with this silence brings a moral story
More importantly evolving is the glory of a boy

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
And others just read of
And if you could see me now
Well then I'm almost finally out of
I'm finally out of
Finally deedeedeedee
Well I'm almost finally, finally
Well I'm free,
Oh I'm free

And it's okay if you had to go away
Oh just remember the telephones were they workin' in both ways
And if I never ever hear them ring
If nothing else I'll think the bells inside
Have finally found you someone else and that's okay
Cause I'll remember everything you sang

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
And others just read of and if you could see now
Well I'm almost finally out of.
I'm finally out of, finally, deedeeededede
Well I'm almost finally, finally, well out of words.

    I think I read somewhere that he wrote this song about his grandmother. The first word speaks of him trying to keep her advice, but it's hard to stay positive when the world is the way it is. The 5th stanza talks about how her wisdom has helped him grow up to be the way he is now. He mentions "if you could see now" and I think that means she died. The only thing that would keep me from thinking it's about his grandmother is "finally found you someone else"... but that can mean she met God or something... I don't know.

    The chorus talks about how he and this person have a love that others only talk about.

    Put your love and faith in god and you wont have to worry about another human lie you back. It's not worth it. Humans well they just be hat ever drive them humans. Mostly greed and power. Love is just some people talking unless you do it in the awareness that you do it for the sake of something greater. A earning that surpassed your love object.

    I love how he never TRUELY mentions that he is actually fallen out of love with the girl. He may be alright with the fact that their relationship was once wonderful and now it's over. And he may even accept that she has probably moved on, but he isn't over being in love with her.

    It's simply taking conversation of 2 lovers that was make them fell to each other... And turning their changing of calls to a magic love.. And after all that has been said by the girl.. A million words or promises... Maybe she fed up.. And never answer again to his lover's(boy) call... But that's okay for the boy cause all he have to do is to reminisce all the days talking with you(girl).
