In the house I grew up in
My room in the basement
The hours turning
To years we've spent
Remember Chris in the back yard
Laughing so damn hard
And no one knew why
But the rest is forgotten

Behind me
Sometimes it reminds me
Of when we, we used to
Belong here

Every memory comes on
When I hear that old song
We used to sing
With the words all wrong
I remember the faces
And familiar places
And I sing along
But Acadia is gone

Ran out of gas on the highway
We walked there and I gave
Drunken speeches on sobriety
Now we've all moved away and
Somehow became men
But I remember where it began

Now it's Behind me
Sometimes it reminds me
Of when we, we used to
Belong here

Every memory comes on
When I hear that old song
We used to sing
With the words all wrong
I remember the faces
And familiar places
And I sing along
But Acadia is gone

Remember when
1712 Acadia road fell,
They tore the house down...

Every memory comes on
When I hear that old song
That We used to sing
With the words all wrong
I remember the faces
And familiar places
And I sing along
But Acadia is gone
Acadia is gone

In the house I grew up in
Remember the faces
When Andrew and I wrecked
Each others cars and

Acadia is,
Acadia is gone

    I seriously think they wrote this song based on my life haha.
    I used to live back in Nova Scotia in a run down house and my parents made me sleep in the basement because my music was always too loud. I made a lot of friends there... and some of the best memories happened sneaking through backyards and running in the forest in the pitch dark haha.
    We always used to try and sing 'It's The End Of The World As We Know It' and yes, being a bunch of twelveyearolds, we failed miserably (; We had some of the best road trips ever with my best friend's alcoholic aunt.. she was so damn funny. We're lucky we didnt get ourselves killed.
    Now I'm fifteen and we moved to British Columbia two years ago. I never cried harder than the day when my grandparents said that house number 649 was getting torn down.

    The meaning is, josh ramsay (lead singer) trying not to forget the good times and memories from his old town. And how it got torn down, so it will never be the same.

    This song is an anthem for me. I grew up in a very distant and abusive family, acadia is very much the description of what was good among all the bad. My room was a sanctuary in the basement of our typical rural house. All memories outside that room are a blur aside from small moments, silver moments in time. I hear certain songs and i don't dwell on the bad, i smile about all the good times, and how my acadia helped me keep those moments at the forefront.

    I honestly can`t fully say what this song means to me. People grow up, people forget but sometimes it`s just important to remember where you came from not just where you`re going.
