Tonight Alive: Amelia Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
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...

It's about her childhood friend Amelia and they went their seperate ways. On an interview Jenna revealed that Amelia died in a ski trip accident. She felt regretful that they had list contact so she wrote the song but still felt like she "owed her so much more".

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.
