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 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.

    Am man who messes up on a girl he thought maybe to some extent that he could just play around with her and when she leave him, he finally realises what he has lost and want to get her back so he sings meet me at the corner to justify that there is a slight chance that they can be together again

    Maybe this is about heather christie, anthony had a baby with her, he's shared many journeys and happy days with her, but she refuses to stay with him because she thinks he's not husband material, that he's a rock n roll man who just wants meaningless sex with any girl, "please don't ask me who you think i am". He mentions a few times, "im guessin were through now" and "im messed up on you". But he also says that he "saw a sign from the gods that you werent meant to be mine, and it's fine" so maybe anthony now understands why they're not together and he thanks her for everything they've been through together :)

    To me it's about two people who were once in love, things went wrong. It took him time to get used to it being over and to come to terms with it. Now he's doing well and is able to appreciate what they once had, and instead of being depressed that it ended whether he completely understands it or not, he'd rather be happy they had something at one point.
