It's been 18 days
Since I had look at myself
I don't wanna have to change
If I don't then no one will
Is it my state of mind
Or is it just everything else
I don't wanna have to be here
I don't understand it now

Cause it's been 18 days
Since I first held you
But to me it feels just like
It feels like a lifetime
I'm trying hard to re-arrange
But some say it's the hardest thing to do
But that's another 18 days
Without you...

Time after time
I've been through this
You show me what it means to live
You give me hope when I was hopeless
As my days fade to night
I remember that state of mind
I'm soaring straight into your heart
And I'll fly high

Cause it's been 18 days
Since I first held you
But to me it feels just like
It feels like a lifetime
I'm trying hard to re-arrange
But some say it's the hardest thing to do
But that's another 18 days
Without you

And I know what they say
About all good things
Will they come to an end
But I'll fight this time
So that we might
Have a chance at this

Cause it's been 18 days
Since I had to look at myself
I don't wanna have to change
If I don't then no one will

Cause it's been too many days
Since I first held you
But to me it feels just like
It feels like a lifetime
I'm trying hard to re-arrange
But some say it's the hardest thing to do
But that's just too many days without you

And I know what they say
About all good things
Will they come to an end
But I'll fight this time
So that we might
Have a chance at this...

    Actually, they wrote this song based on a sheriff and his wife when they got shot and they spent 18 days in the hospital and his wife died in his arms. It was so sad.

    this is not a break up song. if u pay attention to the lyrics he says it's been 18 days since i first held you, not last held you. it's a song about falling in love and wanting to be better for the person you love.

    He hasn't felt so far away to the person he loves. He messed up and he wants to change. He doesnt understand how to get her back, and being away for so long makes him realize how much he cares and hes going to save the relationship between the two.

    I love her but i can't have her. I have made too many mistakes that she can't forgive. Eighteen days at a time i have to deal with this. " that will be another 18 days without you. "
