She smiles at me, then brings coffee to the table
Then pours sugar in my cup, I need her here like she's a drug
Whispers that she wants me, "Then take over my body"
From the Kitchen to the bedroom
You're just like the day i met you
Cold and Calm
That rings not on the hand i know that i left it
She's Packed her bags cause now she's had it

Don't look at me with those eyes I'm still leaving
Oh Yeah the sugar in my cup has lost it's flavor like your touch
With one call to the taxi
She walks right past me
From the stairway to the front door
One goodbye then i was no more...

I've got apologies on napkins with all the things to say
I say "Im Sorry" For a reaction but you're still walking away
And i know it's too late
She's screaming "Dont wait by the bedside, I'm not coming back this time"

Run After her
This could be just like a movie
See me standing in the Rain, How easily she looks right through me
Go inside she's crying...The last 3 years she's been lying
My life's a rainstorm of "I Love You's"
I miss you stepping in the puddles
Drive Away, Go against Fate
You screwed me over like always
Babe one day you will be sorry

I've got apologies on napkins with all the things to say
I say "Im Sorry" For a reaction but you're still walking away
And i know it's too late
She's screaming "Dont wait by the bedside, I'm not coming back this time"

I started playing in the rain
I'm who i am, I'll never change
and i hope lightning strikes me down
I'll show you and this whole town that i'm 1 in a million
I never wanted to fit in any place except your heart but we grew apart
Now rainy days are all i have and i keep dreaming in the past
You keep me awake
No more i can take
and i'm still breathing
Keep Me Breathing
You Keep Me Breathing

    General CommentI love when he sings

    "You screwed me over like always
    Babe one day you will be sorry"

    There is such bitterness and sadness in his voice.

    General CommentI also just thought about the

    "My life's a rainstorm of "I Love You's"
    I miss you stepping in the puddles
    Drive Away, go against fate."

    It's like he believes SO MUCHthat they should be together and her saying no pisses him off so much. And although he showers her with love now he did something she won't forgive and he doesn't understand.

    General Comment"I say "Im Sorry" For a reaction but you're still walking away"
    He is saying he is sorry so she will say something back so that maybe he can get something out of her except for rejection.

    Drive Away, Go against Fate
    You screwed me over like always
    Babe one day you will be sorry

    i relate to this line so much
    hes pretty much saying
    go ahead and leave but your going against what is meant to be
    theres so much resentment in the next line when he says "you screwed me over like always" although he has wronged her theres still that wrong doing on her part too and the "babe one day you'll be sorry" as if saying one day when she wants him back he wont accept her again because she walked out of his life.

    I love this song.

    General CommentI love this song.. one of my most favorite parts is when he is like

    "I started playing in the rain
    I'm who i am, I'll never change
    and i hope lightning strikes me down
    I'll show you and this whole town that i'm 1 in a million
    I never wanted to fit in any place except your heart "
