I made the call just too late
At the end of May
I just thought I could wait
For one more day
In the time that passed
You went down so fast
You went down so fast

Out of my reach, out of my hands
I didn't understand
I would have changed all my plans

An empty house, a setting sun
At 4 a.m.
Some battles fought are battles won
But this ain't one of them
One more shadow cast
You went down so fast
You went down so fast

Out of my reach, out of my hands
I didn't understand
I would have changed all my plans
I would have changed
Out of my reach, out of my hands

Now the leaves are turning brown
I watch 'em blow
Where the earth pulls them down
I let you go
As your breath unwinds
Through the restless pines

Out of my reach, out of my hands
I didn't understand
I would have changed all my plans
I would have changed
Out of my reach, out of my hands
I didn't understand
I would have changed all my plans
I would have changed

    It makes me think of my 25 year old son who took his life. I will always regret not being there that day. My life was over that day... I died with him. I miss you michael.

    That's wrong. Milow wrote this song for a fan. This fan was terminally ill and he always wanted to call her. The day milow called this woman they told him she died. That's the meaning of these lyrics.

    It is about a breaking up, maybe the guy didn't do something in time, he didn't realize in time that the girl want to break up.
