"...And She Told Me To Leave" as written by and Michael Richard/watkins Lewis....
And to it all
Falling down
Who's in touch with everyone who ever stood their ground?
If you could then I know I do to
Lost inside a maze of problems with you

Is it so hard
Every time I say
Won't you come and fight with me
Because if I thought I were you

Every word I say
Would come out wrong and make you look the other way
You know, if I thought I were you,
Time and time again
And if I did we won't be friends

And tell me I'm brought down again
Never the one I'd explain

Can't you ..., don't you lie
There've been times when I've felt good because you're hurt inside
No that's not true I'm just acting tough
I don't know what it is I'm feeling
I don't know if you are enough

Is it so hard
Every time I say
Won't yo you come and fight with me
Because if I thought I were yo you

Every word I say
Would come out wrong and make yo you look the other way
Yo you know, if I thought I were yo you,
Time and time again
And if I did we won't be friends

And tell me, I'll fall down again
Never the one, I'll explain

So answer that you never know
Don't want it back it seems to go
It's so hard, so hard

'Cause I feel alive and it feels alright
Keep on telling me that its over please
And I feel the one
Lying in the sun

(Could I, should I, would i....)
It's so hot in here
It's the clothes I wear
Don't you even ask

I won't let you pass
But my guard is up
And you stole his care
(could I, should I, would i....)

    General CommentHey I love lostprophets, but I have a few niggles with this song lyrics. First off, I really wish that "... won't you come and fight with me" was f*** with me, but these guys don't really curse so... and also, I think that the "because if i thought i were you
    every word i say" is " and if I thought I'd win you" which really ties into my idea about what this song means. If it is indeed "win you" then I think this song is all about wondering whether you should ask that girl that you are really good friends with to become something more. He talks about how if he thought he had a chance then he would be sure to screw things up, and "if i thought i'd win you,
    time and time again
    and if i did we won't be friends" means that he knows that if she does become his girlfriend then they won't be normal friends anymore and he's going to miss that. The could i, should I, would I also follows the same idea, lending the feeling of a torn conscience. Or maybe, I've just got a serious jones for one of my really good friends, even though we are both attached to other people. Whatever.

    General CommentI tried submitting the correct lyrics, but they were never posted .. so i'll just put them here.

    -------
    "...And She Told Me To Leave"

    And to it all falling down;
    Losing touch with everyone who ever stood their ground.
    If you could, then I know I do too.
    Lost inside a maze a problems with you.

    Is it so hard everytime I say.. wont you come and fight with me?

    Because if I thought i'd win you,
    every word I say would come out wrong and make you look the other way.
    You know, if I thought i'd win you time and time again..
    And if I did, we wont be friends.
    And tell me i've brought down again..
    Never the one i'd expect.

    Can't you..
    Don't you lie..
    There have been times when i've felt good because you're hurt inside.
    No! That's not true, i'm just acting tough..
    I don't know what it is i'm feeling, I don't know if you are enough.

    Is it so hard everytime I say.. wont you come and fight with me?

    Because if I thought i'd win you,
    every word I say would come out wrong and make you look the other way.
    You know, if I thought i'd win you time and time again..
    And if I did, we wont be friends.
    And tell me i've fallen down again..
    Never the one i'd expect.

    So answer that "you never know" .. "dont want it back".. it seems to go..
    It's so hard..
    So hard..

    Cause I feel alive,
    and it feels alright.
    Keep on telling me that it's over, please.
    And I feel the burn lying in the sun.
    It's so hot in here, its the clothes I wear.
    Don't you even ask, I wont let you pass.
    Now my guard is up, and you stole this care.

    Could I?
    Should I?
    Would I?

    ---------

    Anyways, this song is about a series of arguments with your good friend, which possibly leads to the end of a friendship.

    General CommentI've always thought the last line was "and the stone was cast" instead of "and you stole this care". i could be wrong, but just a suggestion.

    General CommentGreat song, pretty easy on guitar too... I've dedicated this to my ex, kinda reminds me of her... I think it's pretty much about somebody giving you the "We should just be friends" thing or whatever and still harboring feelings for them
