Trying to figure out which way I want this to go
Do I want it to be happy or sad
Or fast
Or slow

Trying to work it out
What it is I feel
Do I want to rock you
Shock you
Soothe you or move you

I just wanna write you in a song
Put your smile on paper so you can sing along
I just wanna bottle the sun
Yeah
Keep your light a secret I can find when you are gone
Gone
Gone
When you are gone
Gone
Gone

You are like a beautiful tree
With roots in the ground so deep that they could never be seen

I'm a leaf that's ready to fall
And the wind's gonna blow me someday away from it all

I just wanna write you in a song
Put your smile on paper so you can sing along
I just wanna bottle the sun
Yeah
Keep your light a secret I can find when you are gone
Gone
Gone
When you are gone
Gone
Gone

When you are gone
Gone
(Gone)
(Gone)
(Gone)
Gone
Gone
Yeah
I just want to write you in a song

Most people
When they can't get away it makes them more than a little crazy
Yeah
Well I'm the one that can never stay
But I'll always have you with me
Yeah
Always have you with me in this song
Yeah
This song
Oh

I just wanna write you in a song
Put your smile on paper so you can sing along
I just wanna bottle the sun
Yeah
Keep your light a secret I can find when you are gone

I just wanna write you in a song
Put your smile on paper so you can sing along
I just wanna bottle the sun
Yeah
Keep your light a secret I can find when you are gone
Gone
Gone
When you are gone
Gone
Gone

    I think this song means that he is unsure of his feelings, but he wants her to know that he does have feelings for her. But perhaps for now they cannot be together, the wind is blowing him in an opposite direction while she remains rooted to where she is. So he leaves while she stays, but by putting into a song everything he feels for her. Her smile, light, and beauty, he is taking her with him while leaving a small piece of himself behind.
