I miss the way you make me feel
So cold and alone, so cold and alone
I miss the way you make me wait
By the telephone to tell you i'm trying to get by
Learning how to tie my own noose
Because you win and i lose
It's been so hard but you've been so smooth

So play it off and pretend
You never know what you got yourself into
I'll play it off and pretend
i never meant a word i said
Now i'm starting to realize
That getting lost in your eyes
Was the worst move, you win and i lose

Forever isn't long enough
To get over giving so much up
To someone who will throw it all away
And a smile can only hide so much
I choose death over your touch
I fell head over heels into my grave

I count my lucky stars
I thank God i've seen a smile like yours
But don't take it as a compliment
Just know it's straight from the heart
Now i'm driving around yeah to get lost
Just to find myself at any cost
If i hit the brakes my heart will stop
I'm taking comfort in the dark
I keep saying i know your not mine
But i'm praying that you'll be alright
Because it's hard to let go of the ones you love
And i keep hoping for the best
As this wound heals in my chest
I know one day my best will be enough

I miss the way you make me feel so cold and alone

    General Commentto (sort of) briefly sum it up:
    a girl broke up with him and he's upset saying he misses the way she made him feel. he's having trouble getting over the break-up while she's not. he thinks that forever isnt long enough to get over her and he'll always have feelings for her. he dug his own grave by loving her, and fell in love with a girl who broke his heart-"i fell head over heals into my grave". even though he's heartbroken he's happy they met. he knows that they will never be together again. he hopes his broken heart will heal and one day she might realize that him loving her the best he could was enough and that it wasnt his fault, it was hers for throwing it all away.

    so thats what i get from the song..its pretty much straightforward and you could interpret it anyway. i like my way i guess because its how i'm feeling right now with a guy who broke up with me. great song though! i saw them at SXSW and they were awesome!

    oh and i really dont understand when he says "i miss the way you make me feel so cold and alone". does he mean thats the way he felt when they were still together, or thats the way he feels after the breakup?

    General Commenti kind of think the "i miss the way you make me feel, so cold and alone" line means that their relationship was like not really abusive, but they both didnt give to the relationship. only he did. and like she made him feel like crap all the time, but he still loves her, and now that they are apart hes just feeling angry about it, not necessarily "cold and alone" like how he felt when they were in the relationship.

    "forever isnt long enough to get over giving so much up to someone who will throw it all away" is kind of like, he gave his ALL in the relationship, and she just threw it away and its going to take forever to give over the fact that he just lost EVERYTHING. its kind of resentful statement too, like he gave all of himself and she just tossed it away, so he has every right to have a grudge against her.

    General CommentYeah, definitely about falling for that girl thats the worst for him. She feels like she was forced into the relationship for whatever reason. Then he gave her everything his heart, his soul, all his secrets, his whole life story, he gave her EVERYTHING. She lead him on, only to break his heart soon after. He's starting to realize that getting lost in her eyes was the worst move because he got played and he thought the feelings were mutual, totally wrong. She basically faked the relationship, he was giving it all he could to make it work, because he loved her. She didn't care at all and just fucked with his mind, acted like she did, which he found soon after wasn't true when she broke it off. Even though she hurt him like that, he will always love her, even though he wants to hate her, he can't. He hopes for the best, as in hoping one day she will feel the same way, and his best will be good enough for her..

    General CommentYeah. He was completely in love with her.
    But she would blow him off like it was nothing.
    So therfore he felt cold and alone. And even tho its hurting not being with her.
    It's the best thing for him.
