I miss the taste of a sweeter life
I miss the conversation
I'm searching for a song tonight
I'm changing all of the stations

I like to think that we had it all
We drew a map to a better place
But on that road, I took a fall
Oh baby, why did you run away?

I was there for you, in your darkest times
I was there for you, in your darkest nights

But I wonder where were you?
When I was at my worst down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you?
When all the roads you took came back to me
So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do, the map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you, ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following

I hear your voice at my sleep at night
Hard to resist temptation
'Cause something strange has come over me
And now I can't get over you
No I just can't get over you

I was there for you, in your darkest times
I was there for you, in your darkest nights

But I wonder where were you?
When I was at my worst down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you?
When all the roads you took came back to me
So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do, the map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you, ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Yeah yeah yeah
Ah ah ah

Oh I was there for you, oh in your darkest time
Oh I was there for you, oh in your darkest night
Oh I was there for you, oh in your darkest time
Oh I was there for you, oh in your darkest night

But I wonder where were you?
When I was at my worst down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you?
When all the roads you took came back to me
So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do, the map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you, ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following

    The girlfriend didn't cheat on him. The darkest times meant when she was having hard times in life. He was always on her back. He supported her and they survived it all. Based on the video, she caught him cheating and she was angry and heartbroken. It's ironic he was chasing her and asking what she was thinking since he obviously knows why she ran away. He assumed that she would always be on his back and they could fix all their misunderstandings and quarrels. The lyrics mentioned that he hears hear voice at night and he can't get over her. It's saying that she had died and she still haunts him at night. I think he wants to follow her and he wants to die too because there is no life without his girlfriend.

    I think that this song (basing it off the music video) is about a guy who messed up badly and cheated. He then see's his girlfriend who is obviously upset.
    Then comes the chorus which says well there was a time when you weren't thinking straight and you cheated, yet I didn't run away I talked about it with you and we mad it through it. Yet you ran away from me when this happened. And he's trying to chase the girl to find out what she was thinking. Unfortunately, he finds out that she died while running away. I'm not completely sure how that part relates to the song.
