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

    To many meanings to talk about and it hard to put into word what the song makes me feel and not sure you even can put them into words.

    This song has so much depth, beauty, and meaning to it. I tip my hat to Shinedown for this beautiful selection, it's amazing, and they really incorporated a melody of loved and lost, and knowing it was because of you, and now it's to late...it's beautiful. And I know how this would feel. I've done it to someone I loved. Never Knowing what I did all along...

    This song breaks my heart. It's impossible to describe the feelings inside my heart and soul. Once I lost a person who I loved, loved with all my heart. No, he didn't die. He just went away. And left me face to face with my feelings with my sorrow. It's difficult to describe, but I feel like being dead since that moment. And I still love him. Two years passed, but it still hurts. And every time I listen to this amazing song I remember every seconds spent with my love and every teardrop which was given for the memory of my eternal love to him. But finally you understand that you have to forgive him and forget your past. Of course it's difficult, but you had to. And continue living. So he left me and now I wanna leave all this memories because it's impossible to live when you are connected to a person who killed you, who broke you down.
