A silhouette waits outside my window
I jump up and I shout to see if your there
There's nothing but cold sharp air.

I wake up, another day without you
Take a breath from cigarettes
I got time to spare, its better when you're not here

Say you love me, you can lie if it is comforting and I
Won't even mind it so bad, won't even find it so sad
Please see that I've changed I sealed the cracks in my window panes
And I, won't even mind it so bad won't even find it so sad…

I'm not sick I'm not weird I'm simply in love
You must try to understand you were sent from above
You say you hate me well that's just fine I will wait till the end of time

Say you love me, you can lie if it is comforting and I
Won't even mind it so bad, won't even find it so sad.
Please see I've changed I sealed the cracks in my window panes
And I won't even mind it so bad, won't even find it so sad today

Say you love me, you can lie if it is comforting and I
Won't even mind it so bad, won't even find it so sad
Please see that I've changed I sealed the cracks in my window panes
And I, won't even mind it so bad won't even find it so sad…

Loving you is the only thing I ever knew
letting go is the hardest thing ill ever do
I don't even mind it so bad
I don't even find it so sad today.

    General CommentThe writer is alluding the relationship to a house obviously. window panes = his heart.

    A silhouette waits outside my window
    I jump up and I shout to see if your there
    There's nothing but cold sharp air.
    --wakes up from a dream that he's still with her but in reality he's cold and alone and that's his bitter reality--

    I wake up, another day without you
    Take a breath from cigarettes
    I got time to spare, its better when you're not here
    --maybe she didn't liked that he smoked, and now he doesn't have to do any BS she asks, so he's happy--

    Say you love me, you can lie if it is comforting and I
    Won't even mind it so bad, won't even find it so sad
    Please see that I've changed I sealed the cracks in my window panes
    And I, won't even mind it so bad won't even find it so sad…
    --I think this is just saying that he knows she still loves him and he wants to hear it because he misses it, but it really doesn't mater. Just as long as she knows that he's fine either way--

    I'm not sick I'm not weird I'm simply in love
    You must try to understand you were sent from above
    You say you hate me well that's just fine I will wait till the end of time
    --again, saying he's fine, he's normal and she was perfect for him, but really he's in no rush to get a broken heart again....either that, or she's well worth the wait for her to realize she's still in love with him and she's just lying to herself--

    I thought that this song was about him waiting for the girl to want him back, then the last verse says "letting go is the hardest thing i'll ever do". After that, i thought it was definitely about him forcing himself to get over a girl. kinda the if you say it, it must be true deal.

    Basically this is the best song on the album in my opinion.

    General CommentAMAZING song.
    one of my favorties off the album.

    I agree with the person above me, it's about a guy who has fallen in love for the first time ("Loving you is the only thing I ever knew") and now hes going through the heartbreak of a first love, but realizes that the days go by and she's not coming back..so he has no other choice but to move on.

    General CommentHere's my opinion.. like it or hate it... either way it's there.


    A silhouette waits outside my window
    I jump up and I shout to see if your there
    There's nothing but cold sharp air.
    --at first, he's in a dream.. his dream is about them being together still..but reality takes over and he realizes she's no longer there and, he wishes she was.

    I wake up, another day without you
    Take a breath from cigarettes
    I got time to spare, its better when you're not here
    --here, he's I think he's stating that she didn't like him smoking.. and he didn't quit while they were togther.. but when she left, he did..((hence the line its better when you're not here))

    Say you love me, you can lie if it is comforting and I
    Won't even mind it so bad, won't even find it so sad
    Please see that I've changed I sealed the cracks in my window panes
    And I, won't even mind it so bad won't even find it so sad…
    --I think hes saying he still loves her and is holding on to what they had..((love)) but her feelings are questinable... if she loves him, she should say it, if she doesn't she should lie and he'll believe her.. as long as they're together he'll be happy.

    I'm not sick I'm not weird I'm simply in love
    You must try to understand you were sent from above
    You say you hate me well that's just fine I will wait till the end of time
    --he's saying the hatred she shows toward him is just fine, and she's worth waiting for.. he'll wait for her to change her mind until the end of time... ((how cewt))

    Say you love me, you can lie if it is comforting and I
    Won't even mind it so bad, won't even find it so sad.
    Please see I've changed I sealed the cracks in my window panes
    And I won't even mind it so bad, won't even find it so sad today
    --again, he's saying she can lie to him about her feelings and say she still loves him as long as they're together.

    Say you love me, you can lie if it is comforting and I
    Won't even mind it so bad, won't even find it so sad
    Please see that I've changed I sealed the cracks in my window panes
    And I, won't even mind it so bad won't even find it so sad…

    Loving you is the only thing I ever knew
    letting go is the hardest thing ill ever do
    I don't even mind it so bad
    I don't even find it so sad today.
    --Then, here, he's saying that all he's ever done in life is love her to the fullest extent and she doesn't realize it, so he's gonna have to move on.. because it'll only kill him more and more as each day goes by if he sits around waiting on something that's just not there.


    personally, I find this to be one of the best songs on the album. I love RJA more than anything in the world and I can't wait to see them on 7/24/2007!
