There's no mistakes to be made anymore for you and her, I sense you're cold
You know that I'll always be there for you, and I know that I'll get this in your head
We'll fly, and we'll lie down on this field and time will evade us again
Sunshine, yeah we talk in the grass and know that I'm ...

Safe in your room, there's no time, yeah the clock stopped years ago
Dear friend of mine, he makes me laugh, yeah the clock stopped years ago

You know that I'll always be there for you
I've known you so long, I love you like a brother
I feel today it's over but I ... I know that I'm ...

Safe in your room, there's no time, yeah the clock stopped years ago
Dear friend of mine, he makes me laugh, but he almost made me cry

Don't ever do that again, never end it, no I cannot watch you die
You are the rest of the best and you're gonna go so far!

There's no mistakes to eb made anymore for you and her
You know that I'll always be there for you
And I know that I'll get this in your head

Safe in your room, there's no time, yeah the clock stopped years ago
Dear friend of mine, he makes me laugh, but he almost made me cry

Don't ever do that again, she's not worth it, no I cannot watch you die
You are the rest of the best and I'll love you always!

Safe in your room ...

    General CommentCould it be about his friend getting depressed and maybe self-harmig? With the lines like "dont ever do that again, never end it" maybe meaning dont ever cut urself again, and never kill yourself? This song really means a lot to me cuz thats the situation I'm in with a friend. I love that its about friendship love rather than physical attraction.

    General CommentThis song gets better every time I here It, genius!
    Yeah Chess I like the diversity of the song also!

    Perhaps this song is dedicated to one of Dave's close friends in real life because this is his favourite song out of all he's written apparently, I think it could be.

    I don't know if its about self-harming or something more; the line 'Don't ever do that again, never end it, no I cannot watch you die' - made me think it meant don't end it, because he would feel worthless without the girl..........but the self-harming thing makes a lot of sense too...
    All in All, excellent excellent song. InMe rock!

    General CommentThis song always reminds me of my best friend and soulmate...we're both self harmers, and the line 'don't ever do that again, I cannot watch you die' just makes me remember that I love her too much to stand by and let it happen to her.

    It's an amazing song, and i think it means different things to different people

    General CommentThis song is the one song that I have never gotten bored or jaded with listening to, and it never fails to put me on the verge of tears. Personally, I like the chorus the best - I think that that part is about how when the person is in their friend's room, they feel like they could stay there, like that forever, and never be bothered by that. It's a song about being tight with your friends for me - saying no matter what, I'll be there for you, don't let the world get you down cause you've got me.

    I also think the song could be about Dave's friend that killed himself and how Dave was devastated by that.

    General CommentTo me this song is sort of self explanatory, the opening kind of sets up the meaning of the song.

    'There's no mistakes to be made anymore for you and her, I sense you're cold
    You know that I'll always be there for you, and I know that I'll get this in your head'

    Its about a relationship between a guy and a girl ending, 'no mistakes to be made anymore for you and her' like they've messed up so much they can't mess up any more, 'i sense you're cold' like it cant be prevented because the guy just can't take anymore of the relationship but doesn't want to end it.
    but then best friend of the guy is trying to explain that everything will be okay, and he'll always be there and one day the friend will accept that his friend will be there for him.

    The rest of the song talks about how time won't effect the relationship between the guys because they'll always have each other to rely on.

    And i sort of doubt that it is about self harm (sorry), since the lyrics say

    'Don't ever do that again, she's not worth it, no I cannot watch you die'

    Which looks like the guy tried to kill himself over the girl, but the bestfriend is trying to remind him that the girl isn't worth is, and he can't watch his friend fall to pieces and die because of her.

    Well you probably think thats rubbish, but this song means alot and brings back some strange memories because it can mean so much to so many people and its such a common thing to happen (well with out the suicide part).

    General CommentOn the live album, the lead vocals guy says that he's dedicated this song to his friend so yeah, the majoirty of your comments are correct.

    His girlfriend left him so he tried to commit suicide.

    Awesome song.
