    Quoted from Deryck's official website:
    "I was going through my old cassette tapes of ideas today and I came across the original demo of the song 'crash'. This recording was made about an hour after I witnessed a horrible car crash where one of the drivers was killed instantly. It all happened right before my eyes. I was the first one there and jumped out of my car immediately trying to help but I could feel the lifelessness in the air, you could just tell he was dead and there was nothing I could do. I've seen a few people die in front of me in my life and it's definitely a bizarre moment to see the life being taken out of someone. I went home and wrote this song in minutes and recorded this version. And now, after everything I've been through recently this song holds new meaning for me. It's not much different than the album but I like this version because I remember exactly how I felt when I was putting it down. I used to have this big open room with a nice grand piano. I would love to come down in the mornings and play for awhile as I was waking up. The room had really high ceilings and gave off this great natural reverb. It felt like being in a big concert hall. It was almost a haunting sound in that room. It made you feel very alone. And I don't think I could have written crash if it didn't sound like that. ".

    I don't really know if that what I am writing are supposed to be what I had to say in this comment but I still want to write this words. I've found it in my darkest night and it was the thing I needed for so long. I've found there all of my pain and tears falled down from my eyes again and again with listening this song. I think I understood it somehow even if I don't know the real meaning.

    I could be wrong but to me it seems like none of it is about a break up directly but about being in a situation in which the person is close to death and there is no way out.
    He wishes he didn't separate with whoever because there is no one he'd want at his side during this situation more. Other parts are about his last thoughts such as "i don't wanna die" but it is mainly about how he won't be with his partner and he has missed out on living life with someone he loved and that in a near death situation, this will be the biggest regret of all.
    This is just what I get from reading through it and I could go into more detail but you get what I mean and like I said, I could be wrong.
