I woke up early this morning around 4am
With the moon shining bright as headlights on the interstate
I pulled the covers over my head and tried to catch some sleep
But thoughts of us kept keeping me awake
Ever since you found yourself in someone else's arms
I've been tryin' my best to get along
But that's OK
There's nothing left to say, but

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cap and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me, you'll think of me

I went out driving trying to clear my head
I tried to sweep out all the ruins that my emotions left
I guess I'm feeling just a little tired of this
And all the baggage that seems to still exist
It seems the only blessing I have left to my name
Is not knowing what we could have been
What we should have been
So

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cap and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me

Someday I'm gonna run across your mind
Don't worry, I'll be fine
I'm gonna be alright
While you're sleeping with your pride
Wishing I could hold you tight
I'll be over you
And on with my life

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
And take your cap and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
Take your space and all your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cap and leave my sweater
'Cause we got nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me, you'll think of me, yeah

And you're gonna think of me
Oh someday baby, someday

    That him and his girl are breaking up and that he's just wantin for her to understand that he'll be okay without her. But then at the same time he's goin to miss her. But most importantly he wants her to realize that he'll be okay without her.

    ..this song means as it is written.. It's just hurting to remember the past..that is why someone's gotta move on..It doesn't end up there anyway.. that's just the way the story goes..if a relationship doesn't works out, it is better to end it up..kaja? maybe, I can say that this is the best song to describe the feeling of being so nowhere when you're inlove..it's the best when you feel like you're havin' a heartache because of someone you know you have loved but then he ended up everything..

    I've heard that everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end. It's as simple as that. This song to me, is about the difficulty of moving on with your life after something that "could have been.

    "It seems the only blessing I have left to my name
    Is not knowing what we could have been
    What we should have been"

    This song says to take everything that two people had together, & just leave it alone. Stop Haunting each others memories cause you just don't need em. Take everything that you left behind, & just get out because either one can't stand the silence. The raw emotional pain of it all. It's just to much for one person to carry. The load is too great.

    But "Someday I'm gonna run across your mind
    Don't worry, I'll be fine
    I'm gonna be alright"
    Why? Because they will have moved on to bigger & (maybe) better things. The guy/girl would have been stronger just because of the "test" that they went through. In the end, neither of them were burned up by the "fire". Each one came out stronger then when they went in. So because of that, "You'll think of me."

    this is a song about someone who knows their lover is making a mistake by leaving and knows the pain they will feel down the road even though their stubborness is telling them to go. It's sad cuz they will, but it won't make them happy because they will be plagued by what might have been.
