Shinedown Call Me Lyrics

Last updated: 07/03/2013 06:52:10 PM

Wrap me in a bolt of lightning
Send me on my way still smiling
Maybe that's the way I should go
Straight into the mouth of the unknown
Left the spare key on the table
Never really thought I'd be able
To say I merely visit on the weekends
I lost my whole life and a dear friend

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, never mind
God knows I've tried

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
Call me your favourite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over I don't want you to hurt
It's all that I can say
So I'll be on my way

Finally put it all together
But nothing really lasts forever
I had to make a choice that was not mine
I had to say goodbye for the last time
I kept my whole life in a suitcase
Never really stayed in one place
Maybe that's the way it should be
You know I live my life like a gypsy

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, never mind
God knows I've tried

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
Call me your favourite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over I don't want you to hurt
It's all that I can say
So I'll be on my way

I'll always keep you inside, you healed my heart and my life
And you know I try

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
Call me your favourite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over I don't want you to hurt
It's all that I can say
So I'll be on my way
So I'll be on my way
So I'll be on my way

WOW!!! | Reviewer: Cj | 7/3/13

man could i relate so much to this song, you can really feel Bretts emotion when he sings it. it reminds me of my ex and how i lost her becuse of my Addiction to painkillers. she was the love of my life. I miss her every day. and not a day goes by that i don't think of her.

beautiful and moving | Reviewer: marjohn | 8/7/11

he has tried all he could to make the relationship work but appatently it is not happening. his staying will only end up in hurting his partner therefore he is leaving. but he will always love them no mattar what.

Divorce | Reviewer: Johanna | 10/27/10

It's definitely about breaking up - in a liveversion of this song he talks about how he wrote it when one of his friends went through a divorce and couldn't express his feelings... It's a great song, I love it!

Call me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/14/10

I think its for someone who died. Because he said he lost a dear friend and when someone dies, it really is the final good bye (I had to say goodbye for the last time)Nothing lasts forever. He goes on to say that "I will always keep you inside"

It just sounds like someone close to him died, to me. but idk

Call Me.... | Reviewer: Dan | 8/7/09

I think this song talks about someone feeling bad about breaking up with his girlfriend/boyfriend. They are like his last words, and that he isnt bothered by what he/she thinks of him, as long they are not hurt....and that he broke up with her, because he felt it was the right thing to do for them...not that he did it for selfish reasons.

Thats my opinion anyway x
