I'm under attack again my dear, I'm in the way
Got no resolutions, no clever anecdotes to say
And still if I yell at the top of my lungs will it be the same?
I'd fly you a flag, I'd bury this pen into my veins

I wanna feel through you tonight
But I won't make you
I won't make you

The telephone number I got for you says nobody's home
The best thing I can think to do right now is leave it alone
And you had an apology in your mailbox since last July
It's funny when you find the words to say, you find no reply

I wanna feel through you tonight
But I won't make you
I won't make you

Scream my name just one more time

But I won't make you
I won't make you

And it's been hours now
To be here like this
And just to lay you down
And just to taste your lips
And just to keep me up
God I'm tired of sleeping
And just to lay inside you
And just to know this feeling

I wanna feel through you tonight
But I won't make you (?feel inside?)
I won't make you (hit the lights)

Scream my name just one more time

But I won't make you
I won't make you

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it is deeper than that. True, the words sound like he wants to make love but I think the word selection is used to hide the real meaning. To me it sounds like he is trying to mend a broken relationship saying "I won't make you" meaning he won't force her to make amends with him because he hurt her so bad.

    General Commenti agree "sensesfail250" (amazing band btw) i think he speeaking of a desire to mend a broken relationship...that he may or may not have broken himself. i don't think it's clear if he broke up with her or her with him. but man, this song is beautiful. he wants to make her love him but he wants it to be her own decision because he knows that love is not something you can force. and i love it for rhat

    "scream my name just one more time
    but i won't make you"

    wow...gorgeous

    General Commenti truly think this is about broken relationships. this was one of my ex-boyfriend's favourite songs. i really identify because although i hate when things end, i would never want to change somebody's mind if it would make them unhappy.

    General CommentI agree about the broken relationship, but it sounds like he is in a moment long after the relationship ended and is missing it. Like a longing for your first love sort of thing, but she never forgave him for whatever happened, and he wants forgiveness and to recreate what they used to have.

    General Commenti love this song so much. the best line is definitely "its funny when you find the words say/you find no reply". so true.

    General CommentI definitely agree that this song is about mending a broken relationship, or returning to a once failed relationship. However, I still have that tingling urge to sing "I won't rape you" whenever the chorus comes one. Forgive me, Josh, for desecrating your beautiful song... :(

    General Commentanother one of my favorite songs off North. i agree with this being about a relationship that ended in a bitter way. he feels bad and he wants to see her but she was hurt so badly that she probably never wants to see him again. that's a sucky feeling.
