Words I keep in here
Thoughts that make me scared
Always seem to show
Your eyes let me know you know

It's not you
It's all me
As if me taking all the blame would make you feel much better now
But all lights burn out (x2)

What i'd like to say
Is that staying friends is okay
But you and me we know
That in one heart love would grow

It's not you
It's all me
As if me taking all the blame would make you feel much better now
But all lights burn out (x2)

Same time tomorrow
When I wake up
Will the violins be playing
When my heart finally opens
Will you be there to embrace me
Because it's all so crazy now
it's all so fucked up now

It's not you
It's all me
As if me taking all the blame would make you feel much better now
But all lights burn out (x3)

I always thought that I
Would find what I lack in you

    General Comment...and this one... Aaaw so sweet. They always no manage to capture the raw essence of emotions. I've seen them live a couple of times and they are just as good live.

    General CommentTwo long time friends who grew up together know everything about each other, except the feelings they hide from the other. Both are scared of ruining what they already have. He is offering to take the blame if they do not work and they cannot go back to where they are. The violins represent celebratory music, when she sees him in this new way.

    General CommentIt could mean that when someone loves another so much, and it's allf fucked up, and she balmes herself for them not being together, but he's blaming it on himself to make her feel better, and in the end he wants her to be there for her.
