Call Me Lyrics
Send me on my way still smiling
Maybe that's the way I should go,
Straight into the mouth of the unknown
I left the spare key on the table
Never really thought I'd be able to say
I merely visit on the...

I'm in love with these lyrics and felt, initially, that they were related to the loss of a relationship, but just this morning I realized why they were so important to me... they represent the efforts my mom took to get me help when I was a troubled youth, so I agree with the last post... definitely worth listening too again and you may find your own inner personal connection with the song... lyrics aren't really about why or who they were written for, it's about what they mean to you, so every song is unique to the listener!

brent smith said in one of his concerts it was about his dad itll make sence if you think about. When you was little jetting around and your dad would snatch u up hug shake you; wrap me in a bolt of lightning : then sit you back pat you on the head; send me on my way still smilling

Well, a dear friend could mean anything (in the song). i think it means that the person is struggling to be able to change and be perfect for the person that was once there but died. And now he still is trying to change for that person.. but cant, so he doesnt care what happens to him, so he can see that person again...

I agree with both posts. The lyrics sure sound like a guy leaving his girlfriend. But they also sound like a guy dying and saying goodbye to his family. In either case, he admits to mistakes and has regrets. Shinedown is a spiritual group, so I'd go with the guy dying, figuring out life at the last minute, and putting his trust in God. Either way, great tune!

The first impression I had with this very moving song, was that of a sick and dying friend or relative letting go. I think the song is beautiful and has a spiritual connection, of a person letting go and saying goodbye for the last time. Made me cry.

I think this song is about a guy who loves the person he is with but she doesnt accept him for who he his and the things he does. Hes tried to change for her but he cant. Basically hes just telling her that if it hurts her to be with him, to leave him so she doesnt hurt but he cant change for her.
