I’ve got a lot goin’ on inside,
Don’t know if I can work things out this time,
I need a little space to clear my mind,
But I’ll be fine.
Don’t slip, it’s not always this cold,
I’m tired of acting like I know,
Am I searching for the answers,
No one knows?
And I must confess,
Before I take another step that

This song’s for everyone like me,
Everyone not afraid to stand alone and lonely
Can you identify with me?
This song’s for everyone like you,
Come and ride with me,
We will not back down.

Wait, it might not be too late,
To avoid the tension we create,
How about I turn and walk away?
No matter what you say,
It’s not a combination,
I’ve tried to figure you out,
I’m lookin’ for a confirmation,
So I can turn this around.
And I must confess,
Before I take another step that

Every time I turn around,
You’re looking for attention,
You’ve taken all the things I’ve said,
And thrown them away,
Drank them away,
And every time you show up late,
You’re looking for forgiveness.
I must confess,
Before I take another step that

This song’s for anyone who ever took a chance,
Who started out at the bottom to get to the top,
And no matter what you face in this life
You gotta know what you’re up against,
In order to fight back.

This song’s for everyone like me,
Everyone not afraid to stand alone and lonely
Can you identify with me?
This song’s for everyone like you,
Come and ride with me,
We will not back down.


This song’s for everyone like me,
Everyone not afraid to stand alone and lonely, and lonely

    General CommentFirst off... this is a really good song... second, I believe that it means that to prevent hurting someone and/or a relationship, someone else is not even going to bother getting involved with another person... something along those lines.
