You can tell him that I'm waiting
You can tell him that I'm not coming home
It's been a couple weeks debating
And I'm still not sure if she really knows
Fight off your urges to say how you feel
It can only cause problems tonight
Hold tight till you leave, then decide
Whether the timing was wrong, or was it right?

Cause I know I would, regret if I ever left
(Take a look just a little closer)
Because she's the one that makes it feel like home
And I see now, but I can't fight
(Wait here just a little longer)
(Hold on tight you about to lose her)
These feelings that I have inside for her

Call me a friend when you're in dire need of
Falling cause I'm always there to help you up
Call me when you have a place to run away from
Call me cause I..

Cause I know I would, regret if I ever left
(Take a look just a little closer)
Because she's the one that makes it feel like home
And I see now, but I can't fight
(Wait here just a little longer)
(Hold on tight you about to lose her)
These feelings that I have inside for her

Give me a chance to prove that I
Could be your one, your inspiration.
Cause I swear, I won't, mess it all up give me a try
I know that I have my own flaws
But they just build my motivation
So take me, right now, before I start to change my mind

Cause I know I would, regret if I ever left
(Take a look just a little closer)
Because she's the one that makes it feel like home
And I see now, but I can't fight
(Wait here just a little longer)
(Hold on tight you about to lose her)
These feelings that I have inside for her

    General CommentThis is my favorite song my The Scene Aesthetic. I believe it is about crushing on someone and being afriad to tell them. I would say most people have been there before and can relate.

    I just love to take lines from songs and apply them to my personal life though.

    Because she's the one that makes it feel like home

    Yep.

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy in love with his best friend (a girl). but he knows that if he tells her how he feels, she's gonna see him differently and everything will change between them. most people can usually relate to this song in some way or another... this is my favorite tsa song too :)

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who has strong feelings for a girl but is not sure if it's right to tell her.. he knows that he would be good for her and could prove to be the right one. and he's thinking about maybe giving up, "Cause I know I would, regret if I ever left" and "So take me, right now, before I start to change my mind".. this is by far one of the best songs by the scene aesthetic..

    General Commentsufimlh is right, but i think The Scene Asthetic wanted to get across that this song means more than a guy trying to tell his girl best friend how he feels. I think they want people to know that this song is also about growing up, because the title is "So Peter, You've Become a Pirate", this is a line said by one of The Lost Boys (i think) to Peter Pan in the 1991 movie, "Hook"

    General Commentreading what evenstarsbreak said i think that this song could be totally about peter pan and wendys relationship.
    ''You can tell him that I'm waiting
    You can tell him that I'm not coming home''
    could be about Never-never land
    ''Call me a friend when you're in dire need of
    Falling cause I'm always there to help you up
    Call me when you have a place to run away from''
    running away from home
    ''Cause I know I would, regret if I ever left''
    Peter leaving Wendy in england.
    just an idea :)
