Don't let them know you're watching their situation crumble
These things, they take time
And they know, yes they know they should be better now

She's watching me awkwardly from a distance
Should I care?
Is there something more I should have known?
I know that I wonder

They took his crown, there's nothing more left of him now
(but he will be ok)
I appreciate, now that they chose to ignore
I can set her free to go without a payment

She's watching me awkwardly from a distance
Should I care?
Is there something more I should have known?
I know that I wonder

Will she go or follow?
Follow, please follow me home
Follow, please follow me home
This won't end like last time
The things you swore, they never made me feel anymore

She's watching me awkwardly from a distance
Should I care?
Is there something more I should have known?
I don't need to wonder

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who likes a girl and thinks maybe she likes him back but it wouldn't work out because of social barriers. He's messing up the signals and he wants to leave the situation and forget and hope that she follows him, he wants a definite sign.

    "I appreciate, now that they choose to ignore
    I can't set her free to go without a payment"

    The "people" or whatever, the society that sets the social boundaries didn't get involved but as he's trying to break away he has pain, kinda like a payment plan on his pain until he totally forgets her.

    Honestly, the way Saosin writes is somewhat abstract and it's hard to decipher and I could be completely wrong, but that's what it means to me.

    [ i think the writer is talking about his situation from third person, kind of saying how he knows his situation with the girl is crumbling, probably after the break up, they probably are still hurt about the break up, and they both know thing should be better. they probably couldnt be together]



    She's watching me awkwardly from a distance
    Should I care?
    Is there something more I should have known?
    I know that I wonder
    [the girl is watching him from a distance, and the guy is asking if he should care that she is still paying attention to him, maybe it can be something else, maybe he shouldve listened to her when she had to say something and he decided not to (obviously)


    They took his crown, there's nothing more left of him now
    (but he will be ok)
    I appreciate, now that they chose to ignore
    I can set her free to go without a payment
    (his friends are probably bagging on him for being so stuck on a girl but they finally choose to just ignore him and his problems. maybe others too were interfering with their relationship, but not that they stopped, he can set her free, let her go, without her having to pay anything of it [no more talking about her])



    She's watching me awkwardly from a distance
    Should I care?

    Will she go or follow?
    Follow, please follow me home
    Follow, please follow me home
    This won't end like last time
    The things you swore, they never made me feel anymore
    (he is asking her to follow him, to go after him, and he wont end it like last time, he wont ignore her like he did. Im not sure about the last line)

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who left her boyfriend and now she's watching as his life is falling apart. I really like this song as well, I think it's my favorite on the CD. I especially like the bridge part.

    General Commentdrumming is kickass. as is usual for saosin. ;)

    i take the song to be a girl secretly liking a guy. that's just from that first line in the chorus; "She's watching me awkwardly from a distance / Should I care?" and the bridge saying, "
    Will she call or follow? / Follow, please follow me home"
