Wrap me in a bolt of lightning
Send me on my way still smiling
Maybe that's the way I should go,
Straight into the mouth of the unknown
I left the spare key on the table
Never really thought I'd be able
To say I merely visit on the weekends
I lost my whole life and a dear friend

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, nevermind
God knows I've tried

[Chorus]
Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over I don't wan't you to hurt
It's all that I can say. So, I'll be on my way

I finally put it all together,
Nothing really lasts forever
I had to make a choice that was not mine,
I had to say goodbye for the last time
I kept my whole life in a suitcase,
Never really stayed in one place
Maybe that's the way it should be,
You know I've led my life like a gypsy

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, nevermind
God knows I've tried

[Chorus]
Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over I don't wan't you to hurt
It's all that I can say. So, I'll be on my way

I'll always keep you inside, you healed my
Heart and my life... And you know I tried.

[Chorus]
Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over I don't wan't you to hurt
It's all that I can say. So, I'll be on my way
So, I'll be on my way
So, I'll be on my way

    My ex boyfriedn of a 11 months told me to listen to this song. At first I just listened to it not haering the words. Then I relistend to it and I haven't stop listening to it. He was never good with words so finding songs that he could speak thro was what he did and he spoke to me thro this song. It makes a person realize what love does for a person. Good job shinedown.

    After listening to this song for I guess a 100 times I decided that it is about someone, who wants to leave or has already left a beloved one and is apologizing for that.
    I guess he, whoever he is, cannot stay where he is and explains that to her, whoever she is, tries to make her understand, that he'll always love her, no matter what and that he is sorry, but cannot change anything.
    So mostly I think the song is about someone leaving someone. =/
