You couldn't even show yourself out
You were so held up by your thoughts
Along the way we got divided
And I'm left showing you the door
You couldn't look me in the eyes
So I'll dim the lights
When you take me out on your side
We're standing out of sight
Believe me
I'm on your side

It took so long for me to speak up
It was the hardest thing to say
Taken right up to the entrance
At the last minute turned away
Just can't look you in the eyes
So let's dim the lights
Get a case out
Pack up your pride
It's over, we're out of time
Delete me
I'm on your side

For everything that could have been
At least we took the ride
There's no relief in bitterness
Might as well let it die

    End of a relationship. Simple as that. Pulled me through my bit with a girl I had been with for two years. I went to college for this girl. But everything in this song is about an ended relationship and talking about how to do it. Pack up your pride. There's no relief in bitterness. Might as well let it die. It's all so true.

    From what I understand, the song is actually about one of the band's members leaving his friends behind. But this song is good to the point that it can speak to anyone with any type of failed relationships.

    In fact, this song was the final nail to the coffin of my grief over a failed romantic relationship which lasted nearly five years. It was 95% my fault that it ended, and I just couldn't stop punishing myself over it.

    Slowly but surely I crawled out of my self-inflicted depression and reawoke with a new sense of purpose. Just as I found myself teetering back into depression, I heard this song.

    And within a few days, I was finally happy. Happy I could cast aside my bitterness and self-loathing. My weariness of life beyond the trappings of my own self-indulgence and hatred.

    It's possible that I could have reached this point at a later point, but the words of Rob Swire and beautiful music made all the difference.
