comes a time when
you can't judge no more
go out shopping
can't see the store
i can't believe that we're really all good
one of us has gone
where they never should

comes a time when
you really can't judge
should go walking
you don't even budge
i can't believe how
far we have gone
one of us has not come along

get up and tell the sun
that you don't feel love

how long can you
keep circling round?
like paris, texas
til she found out.

    General Commentwell maybe i wrong... but hopefully i am right on this one...
    obviously the singer has lost someone of great meaning to them... things in his life have changed and he knows how different things will be now ... he screams to the sun (get up and tell the sun) that he doesn't feel love and this hopeless nothingness has driven him to a bitter bitter end... and now he is circling around somewhere until she finds out that he truly loved her and this is killing him knowing that she may never realize how much he truly and soo deeply cared about her...

    tough tough tough tough break

    General Commentdyc6ko, I take it you havn't seen "Paris, Texas" the movie (as mentioned in the final lines). In a nutshell, it's about a man who has lost his identity (and left his family), but slowly remembers who he is through the movie. However, the song looks like it might be merely influenced by the movie, not about it. My opinion: Relationships get stale sometimes. Sometimes you just wake up next to someone you went to bed loving and the feelings just aren't there anymore. In this respect, it could also refer to someone in this situation (stale relationship) cheating on the other "one of us has gone where they never should...how long can you
    keep circling round?
    til she found out."

    You guys are thinking too hard about this stuff.
