Didn't you want to hear
The sound of all the places we could go
Do you fear
The expressions on the faces we don't know
It's a cold, hard road when you wake up
And I don't think that I
Have the strength to let you go

Maybe it's just me
Couldn't you believe
That everything I said and did wasn't just deceiving
And the tear in your eye and your calm, hard face
Makes me wish that I was never brought into this place

There goes my ring
It might as well have been shattered
And I'm here to sing
About the things that mattered
About the things that made us feel alive for oh, so long
About the things that kept you on my side when I was wrong

Maybe it's just me
Couldn't you believe
That everything I said and did wasn't just deceiving
And the tear in your eye and your calm, hard face
Makes me wish that I was never brought into this place

And someday
I promise I'll be gone
And someday
I might even sing this song to you
I might even sing this song to you, to you, to you
And I was crying alone tonight
And I was wasting all of my life just thinking of you
So just come back we'll make it better
So just come back
I'll make it better than it ever was
I'll make it better than it ever was

Maybe it's just me
Couldn't you believe
That everything I said and did wasn't just deceiving
And the tear in your eye and your calm, hard face
Makes me wish that I was never brought into this place

Maybe it's just me
Couldn't you believe
That everything I said and did wasn't just deceiving
And the tear in your eye and your calm, hard face
Makes me wish that I was never brought into this place

    I can feel the sadness within his heart. It is so amazing how a person can write a song for the one he loves hoping that she will comeback to him through his sincere sad songs. It's great...like this qoute...
    "It hurts when u lose something very important to u. it also hurts when u lose it unknowingly...

    But it hurts the most when u wanted to save it...

    But didn't know how...

    It's a great song. :) I'm currently listening to this now, well.. maybe just feeling a little down about something. IDK. Life's really not that good as it seems when your dealing with something you really don't know how to make it better, even though you've tried and tried.. still nothing works. Well, that sucks. :| Great song though. :>

    i think this song is about a guy who did something wrong to his girlfriend which made her leave and he is trying to explain in this song that if someday they come face to face with each other again he'll make things better.

    "and the tear in your eye, and your calm hard face make me wish that i was never brought into this place".

    had he known that he will just play the emotion of the lovely girl,he would not have her as his girlfriend.maybe he's in a state of repentance here..

    i think this song is about guy losing the girl of his dreams but he knew it would happen and he couldnt help it, so after she left he is completely heartbroken and he is trying to get her back but she wont come back..
