Songfacts®:

  • In this song, the singer's girl left him because he was a fake and he didn't treat her well. Now he thinks about her all the time; he wants her and he misses her and he doesn't know what she did to make him treat her so bad. He wants her back, but she drifts farther away each day and their whole relationship and friendship is simply fading. >>

  • Tommyg84 from NjThis song is like a goodbye to 90's rock. Really underrated.
  • Joey from Cleveland, GaI totally agree with David, that really seems to be the emotion that Stephan was trying to capture with this song. This song really is amazing, one of my all time favorites.
