when you're going out
when i'm staying in
keep your head above
head above water

you could start again
keep your head above
we don't want each other
we don't want our love

start from one and two
count from one to five
we can't change this feeling
we can't change this time

learn to, learn to trust
let no one else in
start from one and two
count from one to five

when you go out
and i'm staying in
little has changed
but it's just enough

    General CommentThis is about two friends who have feelings for each other, but they don't necessarily want those because they know their love won't last and they don't want to go through that pain, so they just avoid each other.

    very sad, but an AWESOMELY good song.

    General CommentBetween this and ghost, these guys know how to lay down some kickass music to accompany their lyrics.

    NO idea as to the meaning. Obviously the zenzella is onto something, but can't really pick up on the disposition shared by the person singing the lyrics. Do they want the relationship? WE'LL NEVER KNOW...
