"I Want (You to Know)" as written by and Dave/domino Bartholomew....
When will the cycle stop
When will the story end
This is where I get off
I can't go there anymore
Its too hard to ignore the signs

Where do these tears come from
It feels like they never dry
What have we both become
We are strangers in time
Where blood is our only tie

[Chorus]
And I want you to know
That I loved you most
And it breaks my heart to see you go

I wanted to make you proud
I wanted to see you smile
But it wasn't good enough yeah

[Chorus: x2]

When will the cycle stop
When will the story end
This is where I get lost

    General CommentI think it has to do with family because he talks about being connected only by blood. maybe his dad? It seems like he shared a relationship with someone that became more hurtful than beneficial, but is unable to bring himself to completely disconnect himself from that person, because it's family? I know he writes a lot about his parent's divorce and broken families

    General CommentI think it means that no matter how much you might have loved someone it is just time to let go of them and the longer you stay the more its gonna hurt.

    General CommentI may have a different version, but this is what I hear:

    When will the cycle stop?
    When will the story end?
    This is where I get off.
    I can't go there anymore.
    It's too hard to ignore the signs.

    Where do these tears come from?
    It feels like they'll never dry.
    What if we both become...
    We are strangers in a time
    where blood is our only tie.

    And I want you to know
    that I loved you the most.
    And it breaks my heart to see you go.

    I wanted to make you proud.
    I wanted to see you smile.
    But, it wasn't good enough, yeah.

    And I want you to know
    that I loved you the most.
    And it breaks my heart to see you go.

    And I want you to know
    that I loved you the most.
    And it breaks my heart to see you go.

    When will the cycle stop?
    When will the story end?
    This is where I get off...

    General Commenti too think its about his dad, and even if theyre a family he feels like they dont really know each other, theyre strangers who only are a part of each others lives because they are related. he wants to make him proud, but he doesnt feel like he measures up. he wants his dad to know that he really loves them and wishes that he didnt leave. he doesnt want to feel the pain though that his dad is causing, and he is kind of giving up on his dad. "i wantED to make you proud, i wantED to see you smile. but it WASNT good enough, yeah."
