Amelia Lyrics

I think about you every single day.
And every time I see your face, I wake.
And it brings me to tears.
We hadn't spoken in years.

We were close when we were young and naive.
We grew up and we learned other things.
You'll always be...

    This song is dedicated to a girl called Amelia McGuiness, who in year 10 in 2008 died in a tragic skiing accident. They had lost contact before hand and when Jenna found out about her death she had felt so apologetic and sorry that she wrote this song for her and then in an interview said that she felt like she "owed her so much more"

    I believe this song is about her friend, or perhaps someone she had loved for a very long time. After going their separate ways, Amelia dies whether by suicide or unforeseen tragedy, and so the song is written in her memory. As for owing her more, I think it means that you take everything for granted at first, then realize how much you never did or said when that person is gone. And so you may spend your life thinking and regretting not saying all you had to say.

    I always thought it was meant to be a traditional "love song" sort of thing, with her singing about a guy she loved but hadn't seen for years, but then in the last line it reveals the "guy" to be a girl called Amelia, turning stereotypes on their head. I always liked that interpretation, but I think the other one must be true.

    It is about Jenna's childhood bestfriend, Amelia, and how they stopped talking for years. Then Jenna found out that Amelia had committed suicide and she felt guilty about it because she hadn't spoken to her in so long, and felt that if she had spoken to her she could have helped her and wanted more people to know about her and wrote the song to remember her by.
