I've this creeping
Suspicion that things here are not as they seem
Reassure me
Why do I feel as if I'm in too deep

Oh, I've been praying
For some way to show them I'm not what they see
Yes I have done wrong
But what I did I thought needed be done
I swear

Unholy day
If I leave now I might get away
This weighs on me
As heavy as stone and as blue as I go

I was just wondering if you'd come along
To hold up my head when my head won't hold on
I'll do the same if the same's what you want
If not I'll go
I will go alone

I'm a long way
From that fool's mistake and now forever pay
No, run, I will run and I'll be okay

I was just wondering if you'd come along
To hold up my head when my head won't hold on
I'll do the same if the same's what you want
But if not I'll go
I will go alone

I need so
To stay in your arms see you smile hold you close
And it weighs on me
As heavy as stone and a bone chilling cold

I was just wondering if you'd come along
Tell me you will

    General CommentThis song, it's absolutly amazing. The instrumentals enhance the lyrics, and makes what he is trying to say stand out more then he intended. He did something that he felt the need to do. Wether or not it had benifits for everyone else. He needed it to be done for himself. Now, people are like "dude, what did you do! you're nuts!" He can only turn to one person, wether it be a g/f, friend or God.
    "I was just wondering if you'd come along
    To hold up my head when my head won't hold on
    I'll do the same if the same's what you want"

    Here, he is saying please, I do need someone for me - come with me, if you did this - I'd do the same for you.

    "If not I'll go
    I will go alone"

    He needs to get out of here, wether it be alone or with someone else. He needs comfort.

    "I need so
    To stay in your arms see you smile hold you close"

    Ok, he needs someone... I believe the "if not i'll go alone" is a bit of DMB sarcasm. Why would someone go alone anyways!?

    He did something wrong, and wants someone there to run away with. Needs someone to love and hold. Do the same thing for him too.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a heart wrenching break up. Anyone who has been through an awful breakup has felt a heavy weight or "stone" on their chest. Let me break it down...

    I've this creeping
    Suspicion that things are not as they seem
    Reassure me
    Why do I feel as if I'm in too deep

    *He has a premonition that he's about to be dumped...hence the suspicion that things aren't what they seem.
    *He wants reassurance that that's not what's really going on (denial)

    Oh, I've been praying
    For some way to show them I'm not what they see
    Yes I have done wrong
    But what I did I thought needed be done
    I swear

    *He possibly did something really embarrassing. Possibly got jealous and made and ass of himself. Now friends and family think he's a creepy weirdo.

    Unholy day
    If I leave now I might get away
    This weighs on me
    As heavy as stone and as blue as I go

    *Anyone who has been through a difficult break up feels like getting away from it.

    I was just wondering if you'd come along
    To hold up my head when my head won't hold on
    I'll do the same if the same's what you want
    If not I'll go
    I will go alone

    *He's wondering if she'll be by his side while he goes through this awful heartache. To be there when he calls...or wants to get coffee etc. The gist of this line is that if that's not what she wants then he will just have to go alone and heal.

    I'm a long way
    From that fool's mistake and now forever pay
    No, run, I will run and I'll be okay

    I was just wondering if you'd come along
    To hold up my head when my head won't hold on
    I'll do the same if the same's what you want
    But if not I'll go
    I will go alone

    *Again, he's hoping she'll be there for him and not cut off all contact, but if that's what she wants then he'll just have to accept it.

    I need so
    To stay in your arms see you smile hold you close
    And it weighs on me
    As heavy as stone and a bone chilling cold

    *Again, anyone who has been through a break up immediately misses the closeness of the relationship. If he could just stay in her arms and hold her close everything would be fine. But it's not. It's a ginormous effing stone on his chest in the shape of his ex-girlfriend.

    I was just wondering if you'd come along
    Tell me you will

    *Possibly begging and pleading at this point for her to stay in his life. Usually a last resort of the desperate and brokenhearted.

    Well there you have it folks. This song is the epitome of heartbreak.

    General CommentI am not religious in the same way that Dave is not, however I could not help but see the parrallels to the betrayal of Jesus by Judas.
    That being said it made sense when I read the comments about dave's sister and said tragedy. This song is about betrayal from the perspective of the betrayer.
