/he/

I don't feel quite myself
I think I'm losing heart
I'm sick and tired of all those words
Voices in my head
I think I have become
Another suffering of my soul

You ask me how I'm feeling
Looking in my eyes
Hearing only what you want to hear
I'm holding my breath
Holding my time
I wish you knew how I was hurt

I'm really scared of getting lost in real life
So please stop asking me for more
Let me get this straight
Let me get this right
I need a place to be alone

I need a place to be
I need a breath to take
Don't wanna scream with my mouth shut
It leads us nowhere
Stop looking at me like that
This is not what I had in mind

I'm really scared of getting lost in real life
So please stop asking me for more
Let me get this straight
Let me get this right
I need a place to be alone

Let me get this straight
Let me get this right

Let me go
You've just helped to get me out of myself

    General CommentGreat song! :)
    Ok, to the point. My interpretation is as follows:
    This is clearly about a realtionship that the singer probably doesn't want to be in any more (1st stanza) but is expected to by the other person (2nd stanza). In the 3rd stanza he says that he has greater problems now than this relationship ("I'm really scared of getting lost in real life / So please stop asking me for more") and wants to explain everything to the other person so as to "get it straight" and "get it right". And the point of this explanation is the last-but-one line -- he wants to be let go, to be free and not bound by any relationship. However, the last line is some kind of a "thank you" to the other person for the opportunity to break free from some kind of trouble in his life.

    General CommentOh, one more thing: the live version from "Voices In My Head" is better that the one from "Out Of Myself" album.
