I've got the world crashing down, down around my feet. Time is only temporary, this will not last forever. Before you take me home, there's just a few things I wanted you to know. Take a deep breath, it's been an hour. And we've been walking for a million miles tonight, don't fight the things I know you want to say to me. So please, don't make this harder than it has to be.

Time is only temporary, this will not last forever.

Before you take me home, please don't tell me what I don't wanna know. Wipe your eyes dry, you'll see clearer. The end of this is coming close to us, don't rush. I've heard that line a million times from you, and it's true, the midnight sky has another shade of blue.

My heart is yours, for the taking...for the taking. The world is falling like a final curtain to my feet, and the wish for your applause is taking over me.

    General CommentWho doesn't like a guy who touches himself? Sonny is awesome, and so was Phillip. I'm guessing this song is about a moment they don't want to end but it will. Even tho they know. I'm not to good a guessing. (tell me if I'm close)

    General Commenti think it's about a breakup. Neither of them wanted it to happen, but it did for whatever reason, timing possibly?

    "don't fight the things I know you want to say to me. So please, don't make this harder than it has to be."

    He knows she wants to say something, and he wants her to get it over with and not drag it out to make it harder on him.

    "Time is only temporary, this will not last forever."

    Obvious, he knew the relationship wasn't going to last forever.

    "Wipe your eyes dry, you'll see clearer. The end of this is coming close to us, don't rush."
    This is where I'm thinking he wanted the breakup. Telling her not to cry over it.

    Meh, my interpretation of it. Great song either way.

    General Commentive heard two versions of this song. one i got with the ep, and the other one i got somewhere else seperately. the version on the ep starts with an acoustic sounding guitar, and the other one starts with bassdrum and guitar screeching. i think the second one is a whole lot better, and i recommend to everyone to listen to it because esp the singing sounds so much better.
