Superstitions arent meant for lovers
Under covers, undiscovered is your skin
I am lonely, please let me in
Youre probably wondering what I was proving
Are you choosing?
Am I losing you tonight?
Is it over, over?

Are we fading?

I never wanted anything the way that I want you
But my words dont seem to matter
My words dont seem to matter
And you look at me and I can see
The lies youre running to
But my words dont seem to matter
Id rather have you tested and true

Now youve had your chance
So lets try my way, its my day
To show you what youre missing, turn around
And feel the winds of change upon your face again
The warm breath of your closest friend
Im waiting, Im waiting

Are we fading?

I never wanted anything the way that I want you
But my words dont seem to matter
My words dont seem to matter
And you look at me and I can see
The lies youre running to
But my words dont seem to matter
Id rather have you tested and true

Im scared well fall apart tonight
Under the moonlight
Under the moonlight
Im scared well never make it right
Under the moonlight
Under the moonlight
Take my hand and hold it tight
Hold it tight

I never wanted anything the way that I want you
But my words dont seem to matter
My words dont seem to matter
And you look at me and I can see
The lies youre running to
But my words dont seem to matter
Id rather have you tested and true

    General CommentTested and true;
    He wants to see if shes being for real, he wants to 'test' her, see if she means what she says

    General CommentI have a totally different outlook on this song... Maybe it's because of what I am going through but I think its a song about a guy and a girl, the guy loves the girls. The girl wants to go and do her own thing and "test the waters" and he knows that she will ended up coming back. In the second verse he is telling her all the things he feels, but starts to realize his words don't matter and knows she is going to be leaving anyways, so he will wait for her. The third verse, she realized that it's not so great being out on her own, so he's telling her you tried being single and alone, it didn't work out so well. So let's be together because I love you and I never wanted anything the way that I want you. The last verse, I think she realizes this, but he's scared and he just wants her to tell him she wants to be with him

    General CommentI think it's about an STD.
    'I'd rather have you tested and true'

    and he's like lonely because he can't get any because his GF has a fucking STD. so he tells her to get tested. haha

    General CommentThis song is beautiful :) but is it about a relationship that's failing, or about a guy who likes a girl that doesn't like him back?

    That part right there means so much to me, personally. It reminds me of past relationships when my gf left me for another guy, but discovered it really wasnt what she wanted.

    Amazing song.
