  • Daniel from Winchester, OhioAnd of course Landon wrote the meaning for this one too, I'm not surprised if he wrote the meaning or at least commented on every Blue October song on this site.
  • Teri from Waynesburg, PaThis song so helped me get through my second divorce. It was horrible and this song touched my heart so, letting me I would live through this terrible pain. I listen now with a distance pain that reminds me how fragile my (a) heart is... so I am careful with my heart. Am in a new relationship and can love knowing I can live through a bad heartbreak. Keep the good music coming .... thank you :) Love and Peace.
  • Austin from Winchester, Vagreat song (:
  • Holden from Salt Lake City, UtThis song oddly reminds me of the last few paragraphs of the book "Great Expectations." Assuming that the song is being told from Pip's perspective.
  • Mckenna from Logan, Ut:( sad. sad. song. its so good though!
