Please don't ask me who,
Who you think I am
I could live without that
I'm just an modest man

Meet at the corner and tell
Tell me what to do
Cause I messed up on you
And had I known
All that I do now
I'm guessing were through now
Receding into the forest
I will
Lay around in wait
And I wait for you.

Please don't ask me where
Where you think I been
I've been a lot of places
But this could be my win

Meet at the corner wiil I
Tell me what to do
Cause I messed up on you
And had I known
All that I do now
I'm guessing were through now
Receding into the forest
I will
Lay around in wait
And I wait for you.

I feel so bad
I thought you wanna know
Something I want to show
I thought you ought to know

Please don't say you want
To keep in touch out there
To see you on the corner
Well that I just can't bare

Meet at the corner and tell
Tell me what to do
Cause I messed up on you
And had I known
All that I do now
I'm guessing were through now
Receding into the forest
I will
Lay around in wait

Hey and I turn
I turned my head and I thought
I saw a sign
From the gods
A sign from the gods
That you werent meant to be mine
And it's fine

Takin it all for a ride
Until the day when it's gone
Mystified by where
It all went wrong
When it's gone

I live and I learn
And I lose and I win
But it's better than ever
Whenever I'm in
I thank you girl
For everywhere that we've been

    He was in love with this girl, he's the one who messed up and he couldn't get over what he had done and kept thinking about it, but one day he saw a sign from the gods and realized they weren't meant to be. And instead he learned his lesson from it and is thankful for the relationship and decided to move on but still keep it in his heart.

    It's reminiscent of "hey", it doesn't mean anything, simply an exploration of the irony at that moment where the relationship appears to be over or is it, "tell me what to do" and "i'm guessing were through now... I will lay around and wait"

    Messing up on someone that he may have cared about, it was probably the end of an on again off again relationship of sorts

    It's about a man who was hurt by a girl... He thought that everything was going to be alright but he was wrong... He tried and he wanted to try to work out but it simply didn't.. He was waiting just one sign to keep trying and trying.. But things were simple; it was not meant to be together... But he's is thankful for everything they 've been through good or bad.

    This means that a guy was in love with this girl.. And some where in that relationship.. Something went wrong. And he tires to find out what.. But then.. At then.. He see's that she wasn't meant for him...
