There was a time when you would come and go
Now there's no time left to react
Just as it starts to heal in comes a bitter end
Well you were already to leave my side and then...

You're coming too close and I can't pretend
That I'll pick you up or let you come in again
We've been through this before, so please understand
That nothing in this heart can save you from the pain you seek
If you pick up the phone please don't call on me

No one can save you from the undertow
Nobody can blame you for the past
Just as I started thinking "Everything's alright"
You showed us surely that your tenth time was your last

You're coming too close and I can't pretend
That I'll pick you up or let you come in again
We've been through this before, so please understand
That nothing in this heart can save you from the pain you seek
If you pick up the phone please don't call on me

Yesterday I saw you falling to the ground
Seems like things get worse when no one is around
It's not OK

You're coming too close and I can't pretend
That I'll pick you up or let you come in again
We've been through this before, so please understand
That nothing in this heart can save you from the pain you seek
If you pick up the phone please don't call on me

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy and a girl, they were once together and the girl keeps coming back. she has some issues and feels the guy is the only one she can turn too. she wants to be back together. but the guy is fed up. its over and he wants no more to do with it. she'll leave for a whule, but always ends up going back to him.

    General Commentactually i disagree with you. i think this song is about a guy and a girl that like each other and openly acknowledge that but everytime they get close to going out something happens and they both try to move on. however they keep ending up likeing each other...and the guy is now afraid of getting too close to her because he knows how it'll end and he doesn't want to get hurt anymore...at least that's what i hope this means...cuz it's exactly what i'm going through with this girl right now.
