It occurred to me as things are slowing down that it's always much better
When you're around, and it's slowly turning me upside down (upside down X2)

You can be who you want to
You can see who you want to
There's nothing I can tell you now except
I'm always thinking of you
Even when I don't want to
In more ways than I can count

Cuz I didn't meant to let you go
Should've been the first one to let you know
Change your mind
And let me slide just one more time
It doesn't have to be this way
We could stop fighting and wake up in your place, or
I could go
Leave it to chance and just let this go on...

And when we're in the future
And now is a million miles away
Will we start to reconsider what now belongs to yesterday
This whole life is moving fast for me, is it for you the same?
And do you dream and when you do, do you wake up saying my name?

You can be who you want to
You can see who you want to
There's nothing I can tell you now except
I'm always thinking of you
Even when I don't want to
In more ways than I can count

Cuz I didn't meant to let you go
Should've been the first one to let you know
Change your mind
And let me slide just one more time
It doesn't have to be this way
We could stop fighting and wake up in your place, or
I could go
Leave it to chance and just let it go, let it go

We were only children still deciding who to be
I remember following you, hoping you'd look back at me
But then a band became my life
And you heard California's nice
And then we go older like people do
But I didn't mean to let you go

    Its about two people who decided to take different paths in life, it seems his love moved to california and he went on with the band and they grew apart... He wonders if she'll ever reconsider getting back together and misses her badly. I can really identify, soja's lyrics seem to go back to that subject every now and again, hope that explains it.
