So here's how it is
I'm tired of being tired
Bored of being bored but I don't want to be lonely
She's looking at me and I cannot see a place we agree but I don't want to be lonely
I don't make her laugh
I don't make her smile
I don't make her move but I don't want to be lonely
And I'm mouthing these words I'm dying to say to someone I think I know

It's a joke got out of hand but I think I understand
And it won't be long before I get the guts to risk loneliness and do these things I must
To ignore my head and put all my trust in my heart
'Cos I don't want this
No I don't want this

So here's how it is
You like the idea of someone around 'cos you don't want to be lonely
It's not about you
It's not about me
It's not about us at all
It's a story so old it's been told and re-told
And if I want my freedom I've got to be bold

It's a shame and it's a crime
I have wasted all this time 'cos I've known for months all the moves to make
And goodbyes they give me a belly ache
So no 'one last kiss for old times' sake' 'cos I'm gone

Yes let's talk about all the things that we have in common
If these are mistakes then I would make them all again
It's so unbelievable you actually exist
Let's make this a memory of us
'Cos we got...

Lights out
Sound low
I want to know how far can this go?

'Cos we were born for tonight
For this very moment
We were born for tonight
For these secrets stolen

Lights out

    General CommentThis song to me is about being in a relationship that isn't really going anywhere, that though they enjoy eachother's company there's no surprises left and they're basically coasting along and he feels she's just with him because she "likes the idea of someone around". The singer is bored of the relationship and knows he should end it, but doesn't have the guts to "risk loneliness"

    I love it.
