I wanted too much
But I need a little time to try
What it is I want
And is it you this time

I wish that I knew you better
I wish that I knew know myself
I wanted to be forever
But now it’s still only me

Standing on the edge of the world
Now I don’t want you to catch me
I want you to let me
Stand up here and walk on my own
I can’t learn to love you
If you’re all I know

Stay with me????
Across the parking lot???
I told you, you never looked so cold???
You were looking for
All the things you know I’m not
And believe me I’ve tried
I’ve tried, oooh

I thought that I knew you better
Than I knew myself

Standing on the edge of the world
Now I don’t want you to catch me
I want you to let me
Stand up here and walk on my own
I can’t learn to love you
If you’re all I know

Uh-oh, uh-oh
Don’t let it change your mind
Whoa-oh, uh-oh
On and on and on and on....

Standing on the edge of the world
Now I don’t want you to catch me
I want you to let me
Stand up here and walk on my own
I can’t learn to love you
I can’t learn to love you, whoa-oh
I can’t learn to love you
If you’re all I know, whoa, oooh

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who is confused and doesn't know what he or she really wants out of a relationship. Maybe they have been dating for a long time, and one gets cold feet about the whole and realizes she needs time to figure things out.... and the only way she can do that is to go out on her own.

    General CommentI love this song.. i think its about someone whos been with someone a long time, and just wants to try something new, she cant truly love someone until she knows that shes tried other people as well,, maybe shes just sick of the relationship in general.
