It's what you want
and who you are
that has always been two very different things

So I wore my best clothes
on the last day
that I had to carry us in an uphill war
but I dropped you
under the shelter of
an old friend
you didn't mind then
so don't know
is this what we're fighting for

so why don't you tell me
how it was too little too late
as far as I can see it was the best we the best we could do
this is what I fought for
this is not
so why don't you tell me the truth

And so she she screams to her past
but I used to be someone better back then
she used to be someone better back then

so why don't you tell me
how it was too little too late
as far as I can see it was the best we the best we could do
this is what I fought for
this is not
so why don't you tell me the truth

but I used to be someone better back then
she used to be someone better back then

so why don't you tell me
how it was too little too late
as far as I can see it was the best we the best we could do
this is what I fought for
this is not
so why don't you tell me the truth


so why don't you tell me
how it was too little too late
as far as I can see it was the best we the best we could do
the best that we could do

and it's what you want
and who you are
that has always been two very different things

and it's what you want
and who you are
that has always been true...

    General CommentI love the begginning of this song probably the most

    "its what you want and who you are, that has always been two very different things"

    that alone tells me that the relationship couldnt work because of the fact that this girl can never be what both he wants or she wants completely.
    that is somoething that can never change.
    its about a failing relationship that has taken alot out of both of them, but overall the guy is so sad to see it fall apart because of all the fighting and stress that has been put into it to make it work.
    and in the end the person he see's in her is not the person that he is fighting to keep all along...
    which goes back to the beggining and saying that basically shes never gonna be that person that he wants.

    its actually really sad.
    but its about growing up and growing out of a relationship that you cared very much for
