Looking out my bedroom window;
finding hope and constant lies.
Tried my hardest to just cut these strings.
These strings that hold me back.

I don't know just what he tells you
but to me, it sounds like a lie.
Following letters, following letters in lipstick.
It seems to me you're running out, running out.

Sitting, waiting for your phone call.
What's the point, when you're not here?
I don't know why you make me feel this way.
But still I'm falling faster.

I don't know just what he tells you
but to me, it sounds like a lie.
Following letters, following letters in lipstick.
It seems to me you're running out, running out of time.

I've heard a voice, a constant interest
telling me to run & get you.
I feel no need,
you need to fall this time.
You need to fall this --

I don't know just what he tells you
but to me, it sounds like a lie.
Following letters, following letters in lipstick.
It seems to me you're running out, running out of time.

Keeping the letters written in lipstick
Can't believe everything has happened to me at the same time.
I'm running out, running out of time.

    General CommentI think this song is about a messed up relationship. The girl is following a guy that treats her bad, but she doesn't think so. She wants him and will stay with him. He's trying to tell her, but she won't listen. He won't chase her anymore.


    "I've heard a voice, a constant interest
    telling me to run & get you.
    I feel no need,
    you need to fall this time.
    You need to fall this --"

    - He knows he has to help her, but he doesn't want to. He's saying that she needs to find out herself. She needs to fall on her own.
