The things you laughed about.
The things that made me sad.
The times when you were serious.
The things that made me cry.
Why these things were most summed up by another's unrelated song makes me think how unrelatable I can be.
It's funny how there's so many crying out, but you and I are the only two I see.
I'd pray for you if I knew how.
For that cause maybe two should become one.
I saw myself in your eyes.
Something then made me realize, I cry for you, be who you may.
It's funny how there's so many crying out, but you and I are the only two I see.
I'd pray for you if I knew how.
For that cause maybe two should become one.
Maybe two should become one.
Talk of one obvious answer, that you and i have been denying, tends to frustrate me.
In all honesty, I can't tell you you'll find more than conversation.
I can tell you you'll find more than beads from people who would love to see more of you.
What they want to see, however, you might be more hesitant to show.

    General Commentthis song is great.
    obviously, on mardi gras, if a girl flashes someone, they are supposed to give her a string of beads. there's a big crowd there, but he only sees her and himself. when he says "what they want to see, however, you might be more hesitant to show" he's talking about her being hesitant to flash them.
    but also, i think it goes deeper--it's not necessarily just about mardi gras, but perhaps in general, he wants her full attention and she's not giving that to him--and she's not allowing him to give her his full attention either, because she's still looking for other people.

    General CommentI never even caught the whole bead part before! I think that maybe after reading what that person said.. maybe there's that girl who is desperate for attention. So many people around her with the Mardi Gras craziness are too.. but the wrong kind, instead of conversation.. just beads. And while there are so many other ppl begging for attention, she just catches his eye bc I guess he can see a desire for deeper attention it her, which she is hesitant to give. And she laughs about her behavior, but it makes him feel bad.. He also sees himself in her, because he also craves attention in ways, which hurts even more.. he feels sorry for her and wants to pray for her because she's probably not getting any real quality attention and is probably hurt inside because of it. And "showing more"... isn't about being hesitant to flash.. I think it's being hesitant to show what's inside her heart and open up to people.. bc "you'll find more than beads". I'm not sure what the whole "two should become one" thing is about.. That part kinda disturbs me.. but yeah I'm sure it's not supposed to be dirty. I hope that makes sense and is pretty much right. :oP
    plus:
    let me just redo this kinda...

    The things you laughed about
    The things that make me sad
    The times when you were serious
    The things that make me cry
    And why these things were most summed up
    By another's unrelatable thoughts
    Makes me think how unrelatable I can be

    And it's funny how
    There's so many crying out
    But you and I are the only two I see
    And I'd pray for you if I knew how
    For that cause
    Then maybe two should become one

    I saw myself in your eyes
    Something then made me realize
    I cry for you, be who you may
    I saw myself in your eyes
    Something then made me realize
    I cry for you, be who you may

    And it's funny how
    There's so many crying out
    But you and I are the only two I see
    You know I'd pray for you if I knew how
    For that cause
    Then maybe two should become one

    I saw myself in your eyes
    Something then made me realize
    I cry for you, be who you may
    I saw myself in your eyes
    Something then made me realize
    I cry for you, be who you may

    Talk of one obvious answer
    That you and I have been denying
    Tends to frustrate me
    'Cause in all honesty
    I can't tell you you'll find more than conversation
    I can tell you, you'll find more than beads
    From people who would love to see more of you
    What they want to see, however
    You might be more hesitant to show
    From people who'd would love to see more of you
    What they want to see, however
    You might be more hesitant to show

    General CommentIts funny cause these lines,
    "Why these things were most summed up by another's unrelated song makes me think how unrelatable I can be,"
    describe this song for me. Its like Jesus is singing it to me. Sometimes, many times, a song can describe the way you feel so much better than words.
