here you sit across from me
you wear your heart upon your sleeve
you say your colors don't mean a thing
and that means a lot to me

I'm losing patience, and my filler is wasted

this place gets in my eyes my clothes my nose
I try to hear your voice through the drone but I don't
it's been this way for some time
the shoe don't fit but I still try
will I ever catch myself in my own lie

I'm losing patience, and my filler is wasted

you're not lost, you're not lonely
perhaps that's why you own me
you're not lost, you're not lonely
and maybe that's the only
reason I try

you sit and smile simply
saying your garden and your flat
and your life are complete
I want it simple like that
I want your life I want your garden
I want your flat

I'm losing patience, and my filler is wasted

    General CommentI'm almost positive this song is about a girl. But that's where my confidence starts to wane. Specifically this song is about a girl who is genuinely happy. She says everything in her life is complete. The speaker really admires her for it, but I don't think it's because HIS life is incomplete. He seems to suggest that he's had experiences with girls that are a little emotional and their lives weren't complete. I think that's found in the lines "You're not lost, you're not lonely." The speaker likes the girl because she's so carefree and "sits and smiles simply."

    I think the first stanza or whatever it's called is describing when the speaker first met the girl. She says her "colors don't mean a thing" and the speaker is relieved to hear that. She was probably wearing black or some other dark color implying that she's sad. But since they were simply the clothes she was wearing that day, they didn't mean she was like that, once again to the relief of the speaker. My interpretation of this part is a little sketchy, though.

    The second part is the speaker saying how he's trying hard to win her over. He's tried for a very long time and he's "losing patience."

    I think the meaning of the words "my filler is wasted" is that she's in between relationships and, for now, he's just a toy. The speaker wants more than that because she's so carefree.

    But those are just my thoughts...
