We just got to take our time
It's like nothing really matters
So let's make this moment a crime
I know, I know you’re left behind

I'll do my best to feel broke down
It's been a minute, a second
I'll wait for you to make a sound
But I know, I know you're taking time

Maybe it's just too late
I've gotta get away
Everything feels the same
I've gotta get away
Tell me it's not too late

On, and on, and on, you wait
And all the days, they fade away
And all the nights, they’ve never felt the same
If I was wrong then, I was wrong
And on, and on, and on, and on
The things we do are never gonna change

Well, you haven't got a lot to say
But you never wanna stop
You always wanna feel this way
I know, I know you’re taking time

Well, maybe it's just too late
I've gotta get away
When everything feels the same
I've gotta get away
Oh, tell me it's not too late

On, and on, and on, you wait
And all the days, they fade away
And all the nights, they’ve never felt the same
The things we do are never gonna change

We wait forever
If ever, you're too hip to say never
I'll never get it
Oh, I shouldn't sweat it
Like it matters, it's over
Yeah, at least 'till you come over
So much for shutters
We're living under covers so

Maybe it's just too late
Everything feels the same
Oh, tell me it's not too late

On, and on, and on, you wait
And all the days, they fade away
And all the nights, they’ve never felt the same
If I was wrong then, I was wrong
And on, and on, and on, and on
The things we do are never gonna change

    Lyric CorrectionWe just got to take our time
    It's like nothing really matters
    So let's make this moment a crime
    I know, I know you’re left behind

    I'll do my best to feel broke down
    It's been a minute, a second
    I'll wait for you to make a sound
    But I know, I know you're taking time

    Maybe it's just too late
    I've gotta get away
    Everything feels the same
    I've gotta get away
    Tell me it's not too late

    On, and on, and on, you wait
    And all the days, they fade away
    And all the nights, they’ve never felt the same
    If I was wrong then, I was wrong
    And on, and on, and on, and on
    The things we do are never gonna change

    Well, you haven't got a lot to say
    But you never wanna stop
    You always wanna feel this way
    I know, I know you’re taking time

    Well, maybe it's just too late
    I've gotta get away
    When everything feels the same
    I've gotta get away
    Oh, tell me it's not too late

    On, and on, and on, you wait
    And all the days, they fade away
    And all the nights, they’ve never felt the same
    The things we do are never gonna change

    We wait forever
    If ever, you're too hip to say never
    I'll never get it
    Oh, I shouldn't sweat it
    Like it matters, it's over
    Yeah, at least 'till you come over
    So much for shutters
    We're living under covers so

    Maybe it's just too late
    Everything feels the same
    Oh, tell me it's not too late

    On, and on, and on, you wait
    And all the days, they fade away
    And all the nights, they’ve never felt the same
    If I was wrong then, I was wrong
    And on, and on, and on, and on
    The things we do are never gonna change

    General CommentOne of the greatest friends I've ever had introduced me to this band in December 2003. He has since then commit suicide and this band was on his last mixed cd to me.
    I've been obsessed with them since I first heard "The First Single." This song is by far my favorite on the CD, and was his favorite also.
    I don't care what it means. It keeps me happy and I can only see him sitting in his bedroom singing this song to me like he used to.

    General Commentim not getting the whole 'sex with a minor' theory. 'lets make this moment a crime' = who cares what the world would think of this, this moment's for us.
    'ill do my best to feel broke down.' whats this mean?
    'the things we do are never gonna change.' awwwwww.

    General Commenthmm well to me this song is about a relationship...but then again that can be wrongly said about many many songs w/e here it goes...this relationship is complicated and its kinda an off and on thing (things we do are never gonna change), and this song is about wen its off...the girl needs some time and doesnt want him or any other guy at the moment but the guy is in love with her so he is going to wait till she "comes around"...but he is starting to feel like maybe this time she wont come back cus its "too late"
