Lately I've been, doing some thinking,
I guess that it's more like the last couple years,
I never would guess, all that it's taught me,
And I can't believe that it's brought me here,
I'm happy that you, know where you're going,
I wish I could say of myself that was true,
We both pursue, something worth knowing,
But I may not end with the same thing as you,

Wasn't there something you wanted to say?
About all the things that could get in our way,
If I am a martyr, will you be my friend, if it's all the same?

I'm counting the days, and counting the dollars,
Wondering how much I'm willing to spend,
To make us believe, that this is important,
There's only so long that I can pretend,

Wasn't there something that you wanted to say?
About all the things that could get in our way,
If I am a martyr will you be my friend, if it's all the same?
If it's all the same,

You could write me a letter,
You're not the only one,
You're not the only one,
If feels the way that you do, cause I feel it too,

Wasn't there something that you wanted to say?
About all the things that could get in our way,
If I am a martyr, will you be my friend, if it's all the same?

Wasn't there something that you wanted to say?
About all the things that could get in our way,
If I am a martyr, will you be my friend, if it's all the same?

    General CommentTo me, it paints a picture of how a guy wants to be with someone... but that someone thinks they have their life figured out and doesn't want to be in a relationship because it would only complicate things. So, the guy is trying to figure out what he's willing to do, if the person is worth it, etc.

    General Comment"Lately I've been, doing some thinking,
    I guess that it's small like the last couple years,"

    I hear:
    I guess that it's MORE like that last couple years.


    Meaning he first said he has been thinking lately, but then corrected himself and said "well, actually i've been thinking about this for a while now, more like a couple of years."

    General Commentsometimes that they are less well-known makes them more special. more like "hey look at this band that I like" instead of like "hey look at this band that everyone likes and has heard of." you get a closer connection to the band, rather than rhcp, for example.
