This air is contagious,
no one can save us,
nothing this good could ever last,
and tonight is a drug,
that I won’t give up,
this is my favorite addiction
the summer comes to a close,
and no one knows what we know,
no one knows

I can’t explain, what made me stay,
I fall into the same mistakes,
like all good things,
they never last, the past is past

I’d rather be drowning,
than swimming away,
that’s something that will never change,
I swallow regret,
and hope for the best,
if this is all that i can do

this is why I never try,
to make it seem we shouldn’t leave,
this is why I never try

this air is contagious,
no one can save us,
but I wait
I must confess,
I’m not impressed,
there’s nothing worse than losing you,
I must confess,
I’m not the same like all good things

    General CommentI don't even know why, but this song is speaking to me like no other right now. You know the usual drill...girl troubles and all that jazz. As for what the song means though?
    It's that complete disbelief that a relationship has ended. Spending time with that one special person meant so much to you that it became an addiction, one that you don't want to give up. And nobody can save you because you're just falling apart. You feel helpless and you go through with these actions even though you know it will lead you into more misery and you'll remain alone. So sometimes it's just better to not even try any of it. It's easier to live in the past with sweet memories of how good things are. Ultimately the song says, all good things change and come to an end. Self-explanatory, yea. But when you can apply the lyrics to your own life...they're always so much more.
