"Get Up" as written by and Timothy Brinkhurst Kayus Bankole....
Sometimes it's not that time
For things I cannot hear
For words I cannot feel
The way you want to go
It makes me feel like shit
I'm messed but that's not it
I wonder if she'll care
For me ever again
Waiting for the last time
I'm waiting for the right time
To see if she will know the things
She doesn't say to me

And I feel the way I feel
Because I need you all the time
And I know the things you know
But that's just not enough to make it mine
And I won't do anything that it might
Compromise this time
So I'll just sit and hold my breath
Only that's not enough to make you mine

Get up it's time to die
Just guess and don't ask why
Be late and just don't try
Someday we will fly
Higher than the satellites
Into a spacial paradise
Where up is up and down is down
And no one is around
(I don't want to see you crying)
(Let's leave)
(The dramatics behind)

And I feel the way I feel
Because I need you all the time
And I know the things you know
But that's just not enough to make it mine
And I won't do anything that it might
Compromise this time
So I'll just sit and hold my breath
Only that's not enough to make you mine

To make you mine
To make you mine

    General CommentLol I think this song is pretty self explanatory. I don't ever comment songs just to say this, but this song is really beautiful and passionate and should be listened to by all. Both Ways, is also great.

    General CommentI love this song! It reflects how i feel perfectly
    Its about taking chances or rather deciding on whether or not to take a chance
    Its about trying to tell someone how you feel
    but not wanting to ruin the relationship you may currently have with that person
    Its about being torn between taking the risk and possibly losing the person forever ("I wont do anything that might compromise this time")
    or not taking the chance and never bering able to have them (So I'll sit & hold my breath but only its not enough to make you mine")
    I can relate ='[

    General CommentGood job KrAsHiT52752

    This song is amazing
    Its about wanting to tell a girl how you truely feel about her, but theres an obstacle in the way, maybe she has a boyfriend?
    (I wonder if she'll care For me ever again)

    Someday we will fly
    Higher than the satellites
    Into a spacial paradise
    Where up is up and down is down
    And no one is around

    Could mean that he'll see her again someday, but for now, he has to let her go

    He doesnt want to screw up her current relationship with his boyfriend for her cause thats just low
    (I don't want to see you crying)
    (Let's leave the dramatics behind)

    General CommentI think it's about a guy that is waiting on a girl that is confused what she wants from him. He seems to be doing everything the right way, but her indecision is making him" feel like shit" all he wants to be with her, and her confusion is making him feel the way he does:
    I'll sit here and wait for it
    Could be the last good thing that's perfect in my life
    I'll sit here and wait for it
    And you'll get what you want
    And you'll get what you want
    I can't get what I want

    These couple of lines describe that even though the feelings seem one way, he will always be there waiting for her. She will always be able to have that power over him, and he'll get nothing from waiting for her, the only thing he will get by waiting for her is finding out her choice of wanting to be with him.
