It's safe to say that I'm not okay
That's what I get for waiting
Patiently is not for me
Now I'm up all night with you and cheap champagne
I haven't thought of you in days
That's right, I'm thoroughly calculating lines and scenes
Cause in the end I'm here to entertain

I've got a good thing going tonight
I just can't stand to see you go
Well, take me home
Tell me what you wanted
I will never know

It's safe that we'll be okay
I've been anticipating
Anxiously is right for me
Now I'm up all night just trying to explain
What made you drink, sit and sink
You've got so much to lose and lose and lose again

So take a good look brother tonight
Just let the bright lights take us home
Well, take me home
Tell me what you wanted
I will never know
Tell me what you wanted
I will never know

So take a good look brother tonight
Just let the bright lights take us home
Well, take me home
Tell me what you wanted
I will never know
Tell me what you wanted
I will never know
Tell me what you wanted
(Let's just drink)
I will never know
(Sit and sink)
You've got so much to lose, but I don't
Tell me what you wanted
(Let's just drink)
I will never know
(Sit and sink)
You've got so much to lose, but I don't

    General CommentDitto with miss_me on "he's telling himself that he doesn't need her and that it's her loss" especially with the line "You've got so much to lose, but I don't."

    Don't we all convince ourselves that the one who has rejected us is just missing out?

    Anywho, amazing song and amazing band. I cannot wait for the new album!

    General CommentIt's about a guy waiting for a girl to make up her mind. He's telling himself that he doesn't need her and that it's her loss. But as he's trying to forget her, he's wondering why she doesn't want him. He's telling himself that he's over her, but he really isn't.

    General Commenti love how this song has part of "sit & sink" in it.

    "It's safe to say that I'm not okay
    That's what I get for waiting"
    and..
    "Tell me what you wanted
    I will never know"
    .. basically summarize the entire song.

    this is a guy who's waiting for a girl because she doesn't want him & he doesn't understand why. she's probably led him on before, which is why he's so confused on whether or not he should wait up for her.

    General CommentNice song.

    At first I listened to it casually, but as it came on frequently on my Mp3, it's grown on me and now I can't get enough of it.

    It's easy to relate too aswell, which is probably why I find it so addictive to listen to :)

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG.

    I agree that it could be about a girl. But thinking out of the box a little, it could also very well be about a family member. Dad, brother (it even says brother in the song), sister, whatever. I especially think this because of the repeated line, 'Well, take me home.'

    Song MeaningThis song is actually about the lead singers frustrations with writing this song. this was the last song created for the cd and he couldn't think of how he wanted the lyrics to go so he ended up writing the song about his frustrations with writing this song.

    General Commentummm i believe they got a line wrong..

    thats right, im through relating. not thoroughly

    anyway. i could see where it could b the frustration of writing songs. but i dont think its tht considering hes taking about girls here or at least a girl. and how he lost his chance and will never know what she ever wanted.

    Song Meaningwell im just saying this like not to be a jerk but i know for a fact it's about writing the final song for the cd because i know someone that hung out with the band and they told him it was about writing the final song
