And God only knows what I would say to you.
You'd hear just some scattered parts of words I'd mumble to you.
Of words I'd mumble to you.
I thought that at first it would be good for me.
I've come to find out that I just lost my feelings.
I've lost all feeling.

This is the closest I have come to giving it all away.
To giving it all away for someone else.
This is the closest I have come to giving it all away.
To giving it all away for someone else.

And God only knows what I would say to you.
I've waited so long I'm feeling numb to this lonely tune.
I'm numb to you.
I thought it would help if I could sweat it off.
Like a fever, I would wake and it would be gone.
Yeah, it would be gone.

This is the closest I have come to giving it all away.
To giving it all away for someone else.
This is the closest I have come to giving it all away.
To giving it all away for someone else.

God only knows what I would say to you.
I've waited so long that I forgot what I should do.

    General Commenti think this is about a guy thta has serious feelings for a girl, and isn't sure if it's mutual.
    he's planned out the perfect things to say and do, yet he freezes when he gets the chance.

    General CommentI think it's about how he quit feeling for a girl, and he got so close to truly loving this girl, and it turns out he didnt. I think?

    General Commenti always thought this was about a guy who got hurt by a girl and then finally thought he got over her, but when he started to get close to another girl and give her his heart he couldn't because he realized he was still in love with the first girl.

    General Commenti think this song is about how he loves this girl but either she does something that breaks his trust or his feelings have faded, but either way he falls out of love with her and he doesn't know how to say it because he wants to stay in love with her so badly he keeps pretending that he is still in love with her. then he doesn't know what to say to her because he has pretended to love her for so long he became numb. i think what he means by giving it all away is giving his entire being to this girl, and he realizes he doesn't even feel anything toward her anymore.
