One Year, Six Months Lyrics

Sew this up with threads of reason and regret
So I will not forget. I will not forget
How this felt one year six months ago
I know I cannot forget. I cannot forget

I'm falling into memories of you and things we used to do
Follow me...

    I think this song is about 9/11. If you look at Believe, the song that comes before "One Year, Six Months" on the album, it is an obvious tribute to the heroes of 9/11. However, if you look at the release date of the album, it is on July 22, 2003: close to one year, six months after the events of September 11, 2001. I don't know for sure, but my guess is that Ryan Key is singing about someone he lost during the attacks, or maybe he is singing for simply everyone who did lose someone personally, just based off of another song on the album and also the release of it.

    Okay, I'm really connecting to this song it is just like what is happening with me and my exgirlfriend and it was actually about one year and seven months ago that we truly started to like each other, then I left her about eleven months later. Now, over 8 months later, I'm regreting my decision. Now, Were still friends, but I hope I can get her back soon. Enough about me.
    My interpretation is that a guy and a girl were together for a while then one of them just left the other. That person thought that there wasnt a spark anymore so he/she thought for months that it was fine leaving the other. Now one year six months later, he/she is regreting leaving the other and is falling into memories from the time they were together. Now he/she really wants them back. They hope that the other hasn't forgotten the feelings they shared and they will do better to get to a place that they can share

    Personally I feel this song is regretting a break up. It feels almost identical to happenings in my own life. When my first boyfriend and I broke up we (along with some drama) stopped talking at all. When we both moved on we started talking again as friends and sometimes hanging out. We were hanging in a jacuzzi one day and he was saying all of the memories and stuff we had and how we missed them. He kissed me, he know I had a new boyfriend, we again agreed to keep the memories as just memories, not to forget how great they were, and go back to not talking. This was exactly, to the day, one year and six months from the date we broke up.

    In a way, I can relate to this song.
    I had a boyfriend of two years.
    He lives right on my street, about two or three houses away.
    But we broke up for some odd reason.
    Now we walk by each other in the halls at school like we never even knew each other. His cousin is my best friend and we always end up hanging out in a group.

    When the song says "falling into memories of you" and "I can tell that you dont know me anymore" it makes me so upset. I really miss him. But he will never talk to me. It's almost like we are strangers now. So yea.. :p

    "Sew this up with threads of reason and regret
    So I will not forget. I will not forget
    How this felt one year six months ago
    I know I cannot forget. I cannot forget"
    He's broken up with his girlfriend, but he wants to hang onto memories of her.
    "I'm falling into memories of you,and things we used to do
    Follow me there
    A beautiful somewhere
    A place that I can share with you"
    He's remembering things about her and what he did with her and he wants her to remember with him.
    "I can tell that you don't know me anymore
    It's easy to forget, sometimes we just forget
    And being on this road is anything but sure
    Maybe we'll forget, I hope we don't forget"
    He's talking about how they've grown apart..how they might not have wanted to but it just happens sometimes.

    I totally connect with this song. See I had this boyfriend, right? Well we were best friends for seven years, and he lived right next door to me, so we were really close. We finally started going out when he moved... Half way across the country. It hurt. Then it got worse. Yes he came back for homecoming, which was AWESOME, but after that he basically ignored me. That is why I feel so close to this song. The "I can tell that you don't know me anymore" part. (We've long since broken up. On his birthday I might add.)

    I have really strong feelings about this song. It reminds me of my ex boyfriend who I went out with for about 8 months. (hey I'm only 13 so that's a pretty long relationship to me.)

    To me this song is about a guy/girl who is starting to miss their ex. He most likely has lost contact with her, or she just doesn't want anything to do with him anymore. So in a way that is why all he has is memories of her. He's probably wondering about if she thinks about how great things were between them, and if she even thinks about him anymore. Judging by how he is almost brought to tears-
    "Wrap me up in a dream with you
    Close up these eyes, try not to cry "
    I'm guessing that she meant a whole hell of a lot to him.
    It's a bit depressing, actually.

    I think this song is about missing someone who has died and wishing that you could just be with them again. Instead all you have is the memories of them and you just want to live in your memories and never forget them.
