Allow me to exaggerate a memory or two
Where summer's lasted longer than
Well longer than we do
When nothing really mattered
Except for me to be with you
But in time we all forgotten
We all grew

Your melody sounds as sweet
As the first time it was sung
With a little bit more character for show
And by the time your father's heard
Of all the wrong you've done
And I'm putting out the lantern
Find your own way back home

I've forgotten how to sing
Before I sung this song
I'll write it all across this wall
Before my job is done
And I'll even have the courtesy
Of admitting I was wrong
As the final words before I'm dead and gone

You've never been so divine
In accepting your defeat
And I've never been more scared to be alone
If love is not enough to put my enemies to sleep
Then I'm putting out the lantern
Find your own way back home

    -laughs- I don't think that it was about a dead love. I think that they just fooled around, and he broke up with her (and left her to find her own way back home), because her father knew what they were doing.

    I think it's about a love that wasn't meant to happen, but did.
    It was a love that people would down there noses at, maybe?

    You've never been so devine,
    in accepting your defeat
    And I've never been more scared to be alone

    maybe it took a while to get over it,
    took a while to realize he/she made a mistake
    and once they realized they knew they didn't want to be alone
    I have it figured out in my head
    but I can't seem to explain it in words xD
