Needed some time
So I could find
A little strength to redefine
What I've become
What I have done
I never asked to be the one

I'm riding it out
This storm that you brought in
Bringing it down
I'll be around
For you, I'll go again

It's gotta be
Easy to see
What everyone takes out of me
Knocking me down
Dragging me out
How did you end up in that ground?

Did you run away?
Did you fall apart?
Did you see yourself
For what you are?
Will you be looking for it anymore
When five becomes four?
When you're all alone
With the melody
Do you close your eyes
And think of me?
Will you'll still hear me singing anymore
When five becomes four?

Drive and put aside
Your history and pride
Maybe for one
Moment in time
We'll all be on your side

This story goes
Nobody knows
Running was like we known
Someone cared
Out in the air
Midland crashed anywhere

Did you run away?
Did you fall apart?
Did you see yourself
For what you are?
Will you be looking for it anymore
When five becomes four?
When you're all alone
With the melody
Do you close your eyes
And think of me?
Will you'll still hear me singing anymore
When five becomes four?

Remember the lie
Never said 'I'
You were the reason I survived
Where did you go?
I need to know
I waited here, you never showed
It's gonna be
Harder for me
I can't forget so many things
When you were there
I was around
Why would you try and hurt me now?
Just tell me why
Just tell me why

(Did you run away?)
(Did you run away?)
(Did you run away?)

Did you run away?
Did you fall apart?
Did you see yourself
For what you are?
Will you be looking for it anymore
When five becomes four?
When you're all alone
With the melody
Do you close your eyes
And think of me?
Will you'll still hear me singing anymore
When five becomes four?
When five becomes four
When five becomes four

    To LyricalLies, you are probably right.

    Maybe something made him leave the band, like when he left, if he even cared about the band and cared about the times. It's just basically 'What happened to you?!'

    From what I've heard, this song is about Ben Harper, a former member of the band. Ben was the guitarist in the band, but he quit. Which could explain "When five becomes four" - When Ben left, there were only four members left.
