I've listened to this song no less than 10,000 times...

And these words never meant as much to me as they do now that I've listened to it again, through different ears.

I looked up some people's lyric interpretations...and I was right. Apparently Ryan wrote this song for his friend who had had a stillborn daughter...

And that's why I feel like I could've written these very same words for you, Luke ♥♥♥



Elizabeth, You Were Born to Play That Part--Ryan Adams

For you I'd do anything
Tear myself in two
Just to hear you breathe

Calculate the changes that in time
Turn to nothing and then multiply
Yourself by my pain

Over you is where I stand
I wish I knew why
But I don't understand

I'm waiting on someone that just won't show
And every night it seems like there's no tomorrow
Not that you will ever know

Wherever you are, I hope you're happy now
I'm caught in a dream and I can't get out
I'm caught in a dream
I'm caught in an endless dream

Wherever you are, I hope you're happy now
I'm caught in a dream and I can't get out
I'm caught in an endless dream
And I'm not strong enough to let you go

And I've tried everything
But that
Elizabeth
