"Inside Out" as written by Benjamin Eric Harper, William Ryan Key, Peter Michael Mosely, Longineu Warren Iii Parsons and Sean Michael Wellman-mackin....
Here, a little sympathy, for you to waste on me I know you're faking it, but that's OK
And I
Don't want to drag it out
Don't want to bring you down
I never wanted it to end this way

Even if I wanted to
I don't think that I did to you
There's nothing I can say or do to make you feel alive again

Here, a little jealousy, I hope you think of me
Hope you wonder where I sleep at night
Cause I feel like I'm inside out
You got me upside down
Maybe I was holding on too tight

Even if I wanted to
I don't think that I did to you
There's nothing I can say or do to make you feel alive again

So don't you say goodbye to me
Just turn your back away and leave
And if you're lucky I will be your last regret your only friend

The two of us we dream like one
The two of us
The two of us

The two of us take breath like one
The two of us
The two of us

The two of us we dream like one
The two of us
The two of us

The two of us take breath like one
The two of us
The two of us

I guess that this is over now
I guess it's called a falling out
But every day I'm learning how to make it though this life I'm in

Even if I wanted to
I don't think that I did to you
There's nothing I can say or do to make you feel alive again

So don't you say goodbye to me
Just turn your back away and leave
And if you're lucky I will be your last regret your only friend

    General Commentalmost sounds like a relationship song because the of the following near the middle of the end.

    The two of us we dream like one
    The two of us, the two of us
    The two of use take breath like one
    The two of us, the two of us


    that makes it sounds like a relationship song but the realtionship is on its way to dying of this also:

    Even if I wanted to
    I don't think that I'd get to you
    There's nothing I can say to you to make you feel alive again

    General Commentto me its two people - who might not have even been together (probably were though) but the singer really liked the girl but they arent together now or theyre very very close to being over. the singer is realizing this now and even though he likes her, he knows its not gonna work and he doesnt see the point in trying anymore and that hurts him (even if i wanted to i dont think that i'd get to you theres nothing i can say to u to make u feel alive again) And the girl doesnt care and pretends to try but makes it obvious shes just pretending (I know you're faking it but that's okay) and it hurts him because inside he really does love her. and maybe he wants her to feel a little burn when she thinks of him. (Here. A little jealousy I hope you think of me....)

    "if you're lucky i will be your last regret your only friend"
    if shes lucky she wont make a mistake and get hurt over another guy so this guy (the singer) will be the last guy she has any regrets about.

    General Commentthis song explains my breakup perfectly,
    Even if I wanted to
    I don't think that I'd get to you
    There's nothing I can say to you to make you feel alive again
    *this means there is nothing the person can say to get things back to the way they were, no way to make them realzie that.
    So don't just say goodbye to me
    Just turn your back away and leave
    And if you're lucky I will be your last regret, your only friend
    *that measn just turn away and leave dont say goodbye just yet because if they come back he will be ur last regret, ur only friend.
    I guess that this is over now
    I guess it's called the falling out
    But everyday I'm learning how to make it through this life I'm in
    *its over and there learning how to cope with it.

    General Commenthmm, i think this is possibly about the same person that Ryan had written "Rocket" about... because of the lyrics at the end of both songs.

    General Commentthis reminds me of a breakup i had with someone, they treated me like poop and all the time i couldnt leave because i wanted to fix them or something but then i realise i couldnt just like the lyric
    "even if i wanted to, i dont think i could get to you
    theres nothing i can say to you to make you feel alive again"
    i even sent this song to him!

    General CommentRight now, this song just seems to know me so well. I just have to realize I can't change him, I can only change myself. "Theres nothing I can say to you to make you feel alive again"... so true.....
