"Sympathy" as written by Alice Cohen, Evan Player, Kenneth Sanders and Shawn Tracy....
let's not forget
we said we'd leave this alone
and your regrets are killing me

flicker dim lights
as i lay on your floor
this feeling comes back again

so here's your photograph
wait right here for your sympathy
sympathy

so here's your photograph
wait right here for your sympathy
sympathy

your dry lips
are placed on mine
as i touch your pale soft skin

this night is
moments too long
it's all you get, wait for me
no sympathy

so here's your photograph
wait right here for your sympathy
sympathy

so here's your photograph
wait right here for your sympathy
sympathy

    let's not forget
    we said we'd leave this alone
    and your regrets are killing me
    (A while later they try to start things back up again. He is reminding her that he doesn’t want anything serious now, and the guys shes been with since him has further made him think she really doesn’t care, but he doesn’t realize she was just desperately searching for something that feels the way her makes her feel. The random guys are her regrets, she wanted to wait for him and prove her feelings..but waiting just hurt too much, she didn’t want to believe what she felt with him was real)

    flicker dim lights
    as i lay on your floor
    this feeling comes back again
    (As they start talking again she starts to remember the truth. She goes back to the nights spent on her bedroom floor, making love until morning, the feeling of perfection.)

    so here's your photograph
    wait right here for your sympathy
    sympathy
    (She just gives up again, he isn’t ready still and she is mad. She yells to herself saying stop loving him he will never be ready MOVE ON!)

    so here's your photograph
    wait right here for your sympathy
    sympathy
    (She metaphorically throws every photograph in her mind —every memory)

    your dry lips
    are placed on mine
    as i touch your pale soft skin
    (She remembers every touch, every kiss)

    this night is
    moments too long
    it's all you get, wait for me
    no sympathy
    (The night is too perfect, she hates the night. All he gives her is the night nothing more. He just asks her to wait for him.)

    so here's your photograph
    wait right here for your sympathy
    sympathy
    ( She cant just wait. Wait for him to feel sorry for her and love her back. She gives up and leaves every memory behind)

    so here's your photograph
    wait right here for your sympathy
    sympathy
    (gives back every memory and laughs at the idea of her waiting for him to love her out of sympathy, which she is starting to think is the only way he would ever love her)

    this is a story click farewell to read the next part.
