No! She won't, she won't, she won't wait!
No! She won't, she won't, she won't wait!
No! She won't, she won't, she won't wait!
No! She won't, she won't, she won't!

Always what you meant, never what you said.
Passing over me like a book you've read.
But I let it fall, valet every wish.
Take my hands and eyes, but I beg you this:
Offer me one kiss.

If it's her you want, this is what it takes...
If it's her you want, this is what it takes...

Let's get this over.
(Let's get this over.)
Discuss and deny, soon we simply just lie
(Let's get this over.)
And wait and see if you choose something like me.
If you just open your eyes, you could get out of this,
But your such a success, you're just not built for it.

I never knew how much it takes to accept...
I never knew how much it takes
To accept that you're a fake.

If you just open your eyes, you could get out of this,
(If you just open your eyes...)
But your such a success, you're just not built for it.
(If you just open your eyes...)

Sometimes I think you just need some time.
Sometimes I think you just need some time.
Sometimes I think I need some to get along without.
To get along without...

(To get along without..)
Everyone's saying that they've got the answers.
(To get along without...)
But hope is deceiving and spreads like a cancer.

To get along without...

    General Commenthis vocal range is amazing it shows very well in this song no one has made recognition for this as much as he deserves it...
    well anyway i think this song is about a girl breaking up with a guy n the guy trying to convince himself that she'll take him back it shows in lines like "no!she wont, she wont, she wont wait" and passing over me like a book you've read" and as her life goes on she has made such a success of her life and he could never figure out how to get back together with her or maybe its not about getting back maybe its about wanting to have a relationship and he knows shes to good

    General CommentI have to agree with the last line of the comment by "nobodieslistening" but i'll change it a bit.
    I think this song is about a guy who wants to get with a girl who's interested in him but he takes too long to approach her ("no she won't, she won't, she won't wait!") and when he does approach her, he says all the wrong words ("always what you meant, never what you said.") the line that reads "valet every wish" probably means that the guy does everything the girl wants him to because he wants her so bad. However, later on the guy realizes that he doesn't want to be with her because she's not what he expected ("I never knew how much it takes to accept that you're a fake.") then he decides to take some time to think about the possible relationship ("Sometime I think you/I need some time to get all without").
    well that's my version of it, sorry for disecting it so much. but if i'm right, why is the song titled "mis behavin'") well i'm probably worng but oh well....

    General CommentA guy is in love with this girl and the whole:
    "No she won't wait" can have many meanings but I think it means she won't wait for him to do more for her....she wont wait for him to be there or she'll move on. When it says:
    "Always what you meant, never what you said.
    Passing over me like a book you've read"
    I think it means that she's a typical girl that gets what she wants and says things to make him do stuff for her, but then she says "Well what I MEANT was...."
    and then when it says:
    "But I let it fall, valet every wish.
    Take my hands and eyes,but I beg you this: Offer me one kiss"
    It means that he over-looks the way she's using him and would give his hands and eyes for her. He'll do so much for just a kiss.
    And during that part it is screaming "I could never find such a pretty face, pretty face" so he's taken by her pretty face, but then realizes that she's a fake and what she's doing to him. How she's using him.
    "I never knew how much it takes to accept that you're a fake."
    and then at the end it has "Everyone's saying that they're got the answers, but hope is decieving, it spreads like a cancer."
    I don't know what that has to do with the song, but it's beaufiful.
    I love this song!

    General CommentGuy likes girl. Girl thinks she is too good for guy, but takes advantage of the fact that he likes her so much. He'll do anything to gain her love, but she is just using him.

    Reminds me of Estella and Pip from Great Expectations... Lol...

    Still not 100% sure what the dude is screaming... It does sound like "I...Could Never...Find...Such a pretty face, a pretty face, I..." But I always used to think he was saying "I...Fall Downward...Such a ???" Never did figure it out. I'll just expect it's the pretty face thing. Lol. :P

    General Commentyup he yells "I could never find such a pretty face, pretty face".....I used to think that he just repeated the last word that the frontman said, but after listen more closely, I found out that he says the before-mentioned. hope that helps and God bless you all.

    General CommentWhat I got out of this is he's striving to have a relationship with someone with a status higher than his. he knows he there, but chooses to go into relationships with no future. He knows he could make her happy, and have a future with her, but she never decides on him. "If you just open your eyes, you could get out of this,
    But your such a success, you're just not built for it."

    After many attempts in trying to be with her, he realizes what kind of person she really is: shallow anduncaring. "I never knew how much it takes
    To accept that you're a fake."
