Things are shaping up to be pretty odd.
Little deaths in musical beds.
So it seems I'm someone I've never met.

You will only hear these elegant crimes,
Fall on your ears from criminal dimes.
They spill unfound from a pretty mouth.

Everybody gets there, everybody gets there,
And Everybody gets their way (hey!)
I never said I missed her when everybody kissed her,
Now I'm the only one to blame.

[Chorus]
Things have changed for me.
And that's okay.
I feel the same,
I'm on my way,
And I say.
Things have changed for me,
And that's okay.

I want to go where everyone goes,
I want to know what everyone knows.
I want to go where everyone feels the same.

I never said I'd leave this city,
I never said I'd leave this town.
A falling out we won't tiptoe about.

When Everybody gets there, everybody gets there
And Everybody gets their way.

I never said I missed her when everybody kissed her,
Now I'm the only one to blame.

[Chorus]
Things have changed for me.
And that's okay.
I feel the same,
I'm on my way,
And I say.
Things have changed for me,
And that's okay.
I feel the same,
And I'll say.

Oh well things have changed for me
Come on everybody let's dance and sing,
Well I'm singin' it all night long
So come on everybody and join along,
I'm sayin' well things have changed for me,
Come on everyone let's dance and sing,
Well I'm singin' it all night long
So come on everybody and sing along.

Things have changed for me,
And that's okay.
I'm on my way,
And I say...
Things have changed for me.

[Brendon:]
(I'm so high!)

    When my best friend (who I happened to be in love with =) decided we couldn't talk anymore, I didn't realize how much I was okay with the change until AFTER I heard this song. I was a different person afterwards, more mature, stronger, and even though it hurt, I realized that for the first time in a while, I was able to be truly happy.

    I agree with blackhearts on the meaning- it's mostly about how life events can change our perspective and shape the person we are now.

    I think that this song has a theory of evolution in one individual or brendan, the lead singer's, feelings toward the way things have changed for him and his perception on life, even though he might not feel as though he has aged.

    it means they matured but it's really ok.if u see the behind the scenes for this video,the director said that the part were old men were wearing rose vests and those fluffy things while panic is in a canoe and laughing at the old men actually meant that the new panic is laughing at their old selves and are already and are already showing viewers they are more mature now
