Song Description

An evocative piano solo starts this pop rock cross-over piece on a curious note. When the vocals come in, a new dynamic takes the stage and develops effectively with the introduction of each new instrument through the verse. Tension is first heightened in the bridge with over-driven guitars and cymbal crashes and then released in the chorus with the descending vocals and harmonies. The interlude conveys an emotional departure with the key shifts and the guitar and drum breaks. The final chorus drives home the hook and the song ends with a graduated instrumental fade.

Story Behind the Song

I used to know a girl named Melissa. Melissa and I met in the early summer of 99?. Instantly attracted to each other, we spent virtually every day and night of that summer together. Time passed and our feelings for each other faded? or so I thought. What I had believed to be a light-hearted casual relationship turned out to be an intense infatuation on her part. I ended it, and broke her heart. Two weeks later I regretted it and wrote this song.


Baby I never wanted to leave you lonely
Baby I never wanted to go
But when I realized that things had gotten a little heavy
I had to say goodbye and set my spirit free

Sometimes late at night I sit and think of the things you told me
Sometimes late at night I think of things that I?ve done
At times I wonder if I made the right decision baby
It?s such a waste of time, there?s more out there for me

Sing it with me
Why don?t you sing it with me
Why don?t you sing along and dance until you feel it with me

All of the moments we had were so sweet and bitter
Wonder how it would?ve been if we stayed together
I thought we both knew it couldn?t go any further
How could I?ve know it be all of your dreams I?d shatter

If only I had know
If only I had shown
The things inside of me
The things inside so deep
I?ve got to get away
I hope you understand
I hate to end it this way
But it?s just out of my hand
