So we pull into your driveway
I don’t want you to leave
The stars get your attention
I lean back in my seat and we just talk
And listen to the mix that you had made me days before
And I was never good at this
Insinuating lines that might lead to that first kiss
So roll your eyes with every awkward line I fumble
Until I get this right

Was I wrong to take this bound
‘Cause I’m in love with what I found
But you’re coy and you’re holding things back
And I know you but I can’t see through
These doors that you won’t let me in
I guess I’ll turn around, I’ll turn around, and go
Well I’ll just go

And I’ll wake up with this taste of
A bitter sweet despair
‘Cause holding you is like fighting for
A final breath of air that drifts the room tonight
I’m getting tight and I can feel you falling off

Was I wrong to take this bound
‘Cause I’m in love with what I found
But you’re coy and you’re holding things back
And I know you but I can’t see through

These doors that you won’t let me in
I guess I’ll turn around, I’ll turn around, and go
Well I’ll just go

So give me one more chance I’ll take this
One more shot I’ll make this
One more feeling I can’t get from anyone but you, but you

But you’re coy and you’re holding things back
And I know you but I can’t see through

These doors that you won’t let me in
I guess I’ll wait around, I’ll wait around

    General CommentI'm in love with this song.
    I'm pretty sure it's about how he wants this girl really bad, but she's not opening up for him, maybe even playing games with him, but he loves her enough to not give up on her.

    General CommentMy current break up song. I'm not sure why, it just sounds lke my last breakup.
    I feel like I was too closed off for him to get to me and he was just frustrated... he did what he could, I guess...

    General Commenti fully adore this song... amazing
    it's so...perfect.
    i agree with everyone else-sounds like he wants her and she's not opening up to him for some reason.

    General Commentyeah, it really is such a perfect song. i listen to it and it makes me feel happy.
    it reminds me of the awkward, tension-filled beginning of a relationship. should he make the first move or not? should he tell her how he feels?
    it's just adorable and outright lovely.
