From hundreds of miles you cry like a baby
You plead with me, shout, scream
Tell me you're staying
I know, I know, I know
I'm still your love

Back from the last place I wanted to fake
You laugh with me, shout, scream
Now tell me you're staying
I know, I know, I know
I'm still your love

The same as I love you
You'll always love me too
This love isn't good unless
It's me and you

Box after box and you're still by my side
The weather is changing
And breaking my stride
I know, I know, I know
It's just this day

House after house, just like car after car
You see club after club
And it all seems so far
I know, I know, I know
What else are we here for?

The same as I love you
You'll always love me too
This love isn't good unless
It's me and you

Stick your hands inside of my pockets
Keep them warm while I'm still here
Tell them this love hasn't changed me
Hasn't changed me at all

Last night I was writing about you
I know my screaming and shouting won't keep you
I know, I know, I know
You're still my love

I wake up to the sound of you working
You're one room right over
Stressing and loving me
I know, I know, I know
Be still my love

The same as I love you
You'll always love me too
This love isn't good unless
It's me and you

Stick your hands inside of my pockets
Keep them warm while I'm still here
Tell them this love hasn't changed me
Hasn't changed me at all

Stick your heart inside of my chest
Keep it warm here while we rest
Tell them this love hasn't changed me
Hasn't changed me at all

The same as I love you
You'll always love me too
This love isn't good unless
It's me and you

The same as I love you
You'll always love me too
This love isn't good unless
It's me and you

    General Comment:man. i love this song. it's so catchy and cute. my boyfriend at the time would always sing me the part that goes "stick your hands inside of my pockets, keep them warm while i'm still here" everytime he had to go. (we had that whole long distance relationship going on). this song is definately about always having to be separate from that special person but that love is what holds you guys together no matter how far you're away and how long you're gone

    My Interpretation:I think this song is looking at a couple that has been together for a while, and the romance is starting to dwindle. They still love each other and want to provide for each other, but the twitterpatedness is gone. I think the line, "you're one room right over, stressing and loving me," is her in one room and she can here him in the other working late to take care of her, even though they don't have the flame they used to. They fight, struggle, and wonder if it's still worth it. But because they've been together and genuinely want good for each other, they can't decide whether they should break up.

    Superficial love is fleeting. Love that is a choice lasts. It may be hard at times, but after you've stuck it out for years you'll feel a closeness you haven't experienced.

    General Comment:i think its about two young lovers, one moves away. they try the long distance thing but it really just prolongs the pain.
