A blank sheet of paper
is just begging to be filled
But tonight I cannot pour my heart out
Because you escaped with it in your back pocket
Because you escaped with it in your back pocket

Television remote controls cannot save me
From destroying myself
Under these scented quilts
The absence of your lower case screams
Punching out your fragile pleas

Tonight I feel helpless
Tonight I feel scared (x2)

WHOA
tonight, yes my ears are in pain

*****
Come now and leave with me
This place is almost empty (x4)

    General CommentHe's heartbroken obviously, he sings " I cannot pour my heart out, because you escaped with it in your back pocket." He feels alone, and scared wihtout that person.

    General CommentThis song is a really clear song

    "a blank sheet of paper begging to be filled"
    someone wants to write a letter desperatley

    "But tonight I cannot pour my heart out
    because you escaped with it in your back pocket"
    They cannot pour there heart out on a letter as there is nothin left of it, now there (possibly lover) has left them





    here are some other possiblities -

    due to the silence now that there lover has left
    "tonight, yes my ears are in pain"
    ...the persons ears are in pain

    as they have tried things like
    "Television remote controls cannot save me "
    turning up the tv to console themselves and the silence





    and possibly
    "Under these scented quilts
    The absence of your lower case screams
    Punching out your fragile pleas "

    means
    the bed is still scented with the person who has left...
    the one in the room has heard the person who has left, 'plead' argue and say they are leaving...
    but the scent of them overrides this and makes them wants them to come back

    so they say
    "Come now and leave with me
    This place is almost empty"

    which the place is


    what do you think


    im 16 lol
