Shinedown – Call Me lyrics

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.

    Interestingly enough I see a whole other meaning to it. I feel that he was unfaithful to her and she found out. Therefore him leaving wasn't his choice, it was a consequence of him cheating. He lost his life (family he had with her) and a dear friend (his wife). Its happened before, but he did it again (I'd change my ways. No nervermind, lord knows I tried). Yes, he states how much he loves her and will always have her in his heart (but then states again... you know I tried). Personally I don't feel you can cheat on someone you love, but have heard this argument many times before.

    Read the first 3-4 lines. He's leaving his girl friend and saying good bye and killing himself before he causes anymore destruction. Shinedown songs are all about addiction. He can't seem to change his ways even tho he wants to desperately. He says she healed his heart as if it wasn't still there to be healed anymore. If it was and was healed why would he leave?

    Before I start, just gotta say. This song is amazing and I definitely relate to it. Ok, I believe the song is about a couple. The guy keeps trying to change "I said so many times I would change my ways" and be the man his girlfriend wants/ deserves, aka "the saint". But can't escape his past or mistakes "the sinner". Though he is still in love with his girlfriend and is grateful to her "I'll always keep you inside, you healed my heart, and my life..." He knows he's hurting her. So he leaves her, telling her all these things, and accepting the choice he made even though it hurts him.

    Thing song speaks to me in a way. It about two lovers who spend time apart too often. Him being gone. Her at home. And somehow it hurts them. He knows it hurts her. Even though he tried better and failed. So he decides for her that it's best that he leaves and for her to be happy somehow. "Had to make a choice that was not mine, had to say good bye for the last time." He felt guilty for the hurt of being gone. So he left one last time.
