  • I walked around my good intentions
    And found that there were none
    I blame my father for the wasted years, we hardly talked
    I never thought I would forget this hate

    Then a phone call made me realize I'm wrong
    And if I don't make it known that I've loved you all along
    Just like sunny days that we ignore
    Because we're all dumb and jaded
    And, and I hope to God I figure out what's wrong

    I walked around my room not thinking
    Just sinking in this box
    I blame myself for being too much, like somebody else
    I never thought I would just bend this way

    Then a phone call made me realize I'm wrong
    And if I don't make it known that I've loved you all along
    Just like sunny days that we ignore
    Because we're all dumb and jaded
    And, and I hope to God I figure out what's wrong

    And I hope to God I figure out what's wrong
    And I hope to God I figure out what's wrong

    If I don't make it known that I've loved you all along
    Just like sunny days that we ignore
    Because we're all dumb and jaded
    And I hope to God I figure out what's wrong

    And if I don't make it known that I've loved you all along
    Just like sunny days that we ignore
    Because we're all dumb and jaded
    And, and I hope to God I figure out what's wrong

  • Amber from Edmonton, CanadaIf you watch the video the song is about racism the son is black the father white "Blame myself for being too much like somebody else" and maybe suicide because at the end of the video the sonis laying on the ground with the coat over his head and then the our lady peace people take him away in there car and the son and the father neglect each other but they throw away the letters they were going to send to one another.
  • Joe from Mentor, OhThis song is obviously about Raine's problems with his father when he was younger the title 4 A.M. stands for (For Adam Maida).
  • Chantell from Delta, CanadaShortly before my GREAT grANNy passed away and even the couple years since this song has been a source of strength in my life. Some would say that I needed to let go. That when I let go she would be able to as well. This song gave me the strength to say "I can let you go if you need to, I know how much you love me and it will last forever". Within hours of that my grANNy passed away. She had held on 4 years longer then anyone even doctors believed to be possible.
  • Christopher from Miami, FlThis song has been a major part of my life for the past six years, i lost my younger brother to cancer, and this song was my only comfort. i wrote the band a letter, gave it to them, they played it for me onstage. i then got to hang out with them on their bus and talk abou the meaning of the song for me. all the guys in the band are amazing human beings. i will always treasure our lady peace.
  • Dan from Washington, Dcthis is an ok song
  • Seth from Simpsonville, ScThis song is obviously about Maida's rocky relationship with his father.
  • Ashley from Moncton, CanadaI love Our Lady Peace. Raine Maida has the greatest voice ever. This song is one of the best songs from this album.
