(Piano lead-in)

Here we are
Isn't it familiar
Haven't had someone to talk to
In such a long time
And it's strange
All we have in common
And your company was just the thing I needed tonight
Somehow I feel I should apologize
Cuz I'm just a little shaken
By what's going on inside

I should go
Before my will gets any weaker
And my eyes begin to linger
Longer than they should
I should go
Before I lose my sense of reason
And this hour holds more meaning
Than it ever could
I should go
I should go
Baby, I should go

It's so hard
Keeping my composure
And pretend I don't see how
Your body curves beneath your clothes
And your laugh
Is pure and unaffected
It frightens me to know so well the place I shouldn't go
I know I gotta take the noble path
Cuz I don't want you to question
The intentions that I have

I should go
Before my will gets any weaker
And my eyes begin to linger
Longer than they should
I should go
Before I lose my sense of reason
And this hour holds more meaning
Than it ever could
I should go
I should go
Baby, I should go

I don't mean to leave you with a trivial excuse
And when you call tomorrow, I'll know what to do

I should go
Before my will gets any weaker
And my eyes begin to linger
Longer than they should
I should go
Before I lose my sense of reason
And this hour holds more meaning
Than it ever could
I should go
I should go
Baby, I should go

    General Commentno no! this song is saying that the guy isnt going to try and have sex with her tht very night and he should wait because he wants to respect her and not to lose the meaning of the time theyre having together. but he just thinks she is so beautiful.

    This is such a beautiful song.
    The first time I ever heard it was set to a video about Colleen & Adrian from General Hospital, a couple that shouldn't be together but who love eachother anyway. To me this is what the song's about.
    Someone wanting someone that they can't be with...

    General CommentI agree that he's trying hard not to sleep with her but I think it may because wanting her is wrong. I think maybe one or both of them is involved with someone else so he has to deny himself and be a good guy. "And this hour holds more meaning than it ever could" With this line, it sounds like no matter what the circumstances, he can't let it mean more than what he wants it to.

    General CommentThis is a good song.
    I've heard it on vampire diaries so I've searched it.
    I think it portrays Damon's feelings towards Elena (not the sex thing)*chuckles. And how he tries to be a noble like his brother, Stefan. (I hope I'm making sense here) . XD hahaha

    NOTE: Just relating the song with Damon( one of the main casts of Vampire diaries)

    sh*t being fanatic AGAIN. XD

    My OpinionI personally think he's singing this song about a man, not a woman. Since, you know, Levi Kreis is gay and all.
