What have you been up to?
That warrants not letting me know?
Tell me. Why Should I believe you?
I've been worried for hours
When all you had to do was call.
Exactly why is this so hard?

Oh I've crossed this road before,
And while familiar is helpful....
It's getting old.

If there's a way to stay in control,
Someone let me know.
Because I cant even waste breath
unless my other half knows
And its madness that everybody
Learns to live with day by day with what to show?

And I think I'm better off alone

Well I remember a time when
It didn't matter where I go.
How I loved to have that freedom.
And it's not like I'm asking
For this to happen all the time.
Exactly why is this so hard?

by now I'm sure you know,
I get a little resentful
When I watch as all my options fly
one way straight to the floor
Oh and I know all of this has gone way to far.
Whoa!

If there's a way to stay in control,
Someone let me know.
Because I cant even waste breath
unless my other half knows
And its madness that everybody
Learns to live with day by day with what to show?

And I think I'm better off alone

We all amount to nothing on our own
That's how it goes.
Don't forget what you're told,
It's just a constant struggle back and forth it goes.

If there's a way to stay in control,
Someone let me know.
Because I cant even waste breath
unless my other half knows
And its madness that everybody
Learns to live with day by day with what to show?

Learn to live day by day with what.....
To show for all the places I've been,
For all the money I've spent,
To show for people that I could have
met but had to stay in?
I'm not opposing this, no
I dont preach abstinence
I just think that once and again,
We need to be alone.

    General Commenti LOVE this band! anyway.. the song is about a girlfriend (probably) who was out all night and he had gotten really worried about her (I've been worried for hours When all you had to do was call).
    apparently this has been happening a lot with her and he's getting fed up. The more it happens the more he understands that she is probably safe wherever she is, but he is getting bored and annoyed with having to worry about where she is all the time. (Oh I've crossed this road before,
    And while familiar is helpful....
    It's getting old.)
    he is really confused and doesnt know what to do about her, and he is kind of split in two about how to deal with it ( If there's a way to stay in control, someone let me know, Because I cant even waste breath unless my other half knows)

    hope that made sense :)
