We moved in many shapes
And I'm nearly awake
With the first of the day
Convinced last night went okay

Hold on, hold on
This candle's burned out
I won't let it go
Hold on, hold on
We want it so bad
This one thing we can't have

We can't see doubt
On the list of abandoned doubts
When the truth came out
I'll decline if nothing else

Hold on, hold on
This candle's burned out
I won't let it go
Hold on, hold on
We want it so bad
This one thing we can't have

Hold on, hold on
This candle's burned out
I won't let it go
Hold on, hold on
We want it so bad
This one thing we can't have

Hold on, hold on
We moved in many shapes
And I'm nearly awake
Hold on, hold on
We moved in many shapes
We want it so bad
This one thing we can't have

    General CommentSounds like it's about having a one night stand, and the sadness of knowing the relationship can't run deeper.

    General CommentI kind of agree. I honestly hope this song ends up getting cut for one of the new ones they wrote. I just don't think it fits well with the album lyrically. Kind of like "A Beautiful Mistake" on SLA.

    General CommentPersonally I think it's about someone trying to fill the void in their life by one night stands, but it's doesn't heal his loneliness, which is the one thing he can't have.

    I can't really make sense of the second verse though... "we can't see doubt, on the list of abandoned doubts, when the truth came out, i'll decline if nothing else"... what does that mean?

    Too bad this didn't make the final release.
