I swear that you don't have to go, I thought we could wait for the fireworks
I thought we could wait for the snow
To wash over Georgia and kill the hurt
I thought I could live in your arms and spend every moment I had with you
Stay up all night with the stars
Confess all the faith that I had in you (I had in you)

Too late, I'm sure, and lonely
Another night, another dream wasted on you
Just be here now, against me
You know the words, so sing along for me baby
For Heaven's sake, I know you're sorry, but you wont stop crying
This anniversary may never be the same
Inside I hope you know I'm dying, with my heart beside me, in shattered pieces that, may never be replaced
And if I died right now, you'd never be the same

I thought with a month of apart
Together would find us an opening
And moonlight would provide the spark
And that I would stumble across your key
Or break down the door to your heart
Forever could see us, not you and me
And you'd help me out of the dark
And I give my heart as an offering (An offering)

Too late, I'm sure, and lonely
Another night, another dream wasted on you
Just be, here now
Against me
You know the words, so sing along for me baby
For Heaven's sake, I know you're sorry, but you wont stop crying
This anniversary may never be the same
Inside I hope you know I'm dying, with my heart beside me, In shattered pieces that, may never be replaced
And if I died right now, you'd never be the same

And I... Will always... Remember you as, you are right now to me
And I... Will always... Remember you now, remember you now...
Oh...
So sleep alone tonight
With no one here just by your side
Sleep alone tonight
How does he feel? How does he kiss?
How does he taste while he's on your lips?
I can't forget you
I know you want me to want you, I want to
But I can't forget you
So when this is over, don't blow your composure, baby
I can't forget you
I know you want me to want you, I want to
But I can't forget you
So when this is over don't blow your composure, baby
I can't forget you...
I know you want me to want you, I want to...

    He found out that Katie cheated and they had been dating for five years. He was going to propose on their fifth anniversary but she canceled out... poor Derek Sanders...

    I love them and this song makes me love them more. I love the way Derek's voice sounds when he sings. Its unlike anything I've every heard.

    This was the first Mayday Parade song I ever heard... well, the first time I heard it, my friend was actually singing it... hehehe. But I asked her what song it was, and I'd never heard of Mayday Parade, and now I'm like obsessed with them. That was like four months ago I think, hahaha.

    I really love this song though, it's one of my favorites by them. The end part is really great. I love the "How does he feel? How does he kiss? How does he taste while he's on your lips?"

    I [once again] agree with Oh-Shit_Casey. You seem to know a lot about this band, I'm really glad you're posting on here -^.^-

    I think this song is saying how he thought they'd last for so long, because it's talking about waiting for the snow, and it doesn't snow much in Gorgia. And he thought that he'd spend all his life with this girl, and with the "month of apart", when he was on tour I think, he thought after that would be the perfect time to propose, but then he found out that his girlfriend of five years had cheated on him.

    It's really a sad song, but it's also really touching, especially for those who have been cheated on. I really love Derek's voice, it's so smooth and all around beautiful. He's one of my favorite singers without a doubt!

    The last part of the song is wrong.
    It's
    I can't forget you
    I know you want me to want you, I want to
    But I can't forgive you
