why can't i see through you
why can i never steal your heart
i'm holding back another night
hold me close, don't let go

why can't i see through you
why can i never steal your heart
your breathless voice i won't forget
cause it's always beautiful

this cold december air
i feel your breath
as if i were there

this cold december air
i feel your breath
as if i were there

why can't i fake this
why can i never steal your heart
you're not alone in this my dear
this is hard for both of us

why can't i fake this
why can i never steal your heart
and if i could i'd let you know
that i always wanted this

this cold december air
i feel your breath
as if i were there

this cold december air
i feel your breath
as if i were there

your heart is torn apart
just stay right here
next to me

your heart is torn apart
just stay right here
next to me

well i guess i
i can't walk past you
my heart is torn too
i guess i'll wait here

i guess i
i can't walk past you
my heart is torn in two
these pieces of you

your heart is torn apart
stay right here
next to me

    General CommentHmm.
    I think this song is about how you can't have someone, and you really really want them.

    Rather depressing.

    But hell, that's just my opinion.

    General CommentChapter III

    why can't i see through you
    why can i never steal your heart
    i'm holding back another night
    hold me close, don't let go

    (even after all this time she still wants him, she has stop casual dating and tried to have a serious relationship- but she cant shake him. She cant be serious with anyone, she still feels only for him. She cries out to him why?!! Why can’t I feel anything for anyone but you, If you cant give me your heart why can I even steal your heart!! She is holding back another night with the guy she is trying to be serious with, she cannot give him her all in the night, she already gave herself away . She begs the guy to stay with her even though she doesn’t feel for him just so she can feel something close to real.)

    why can't i see through you
    why can i never steal your heart
    your breathless voice i won't forget
    cause it's always beautiful
    (Why cant she see through his lies, he doesn’t really care about her…She cant forget everything she loves about him. )
    this cold december air
    i feel your breath
    as if i were there

    (It is december and feels his memory sneaking up on her again, she still feels exactly the same way)

    this cold december air
    i feel your breath
    as if i were there

    why can't i fake this
    why can i never steal your heart
    you're not alone in this my dear
    this is hard for both of us
    (she says why cant I just fake being normal, not liking him, find someone else. Once again he says he loves her too, but he cant be serious with her right now. Just wait a little longer for him.)

    why can't i fake this
    why can i never steal your heart
    and if i could i'd let you know
    that i always wanted this
    (She keeps screaming to herself )

    this cold december air
    i feel your breath
    as if i were there

    this cold december air
    i feel your breath
    as if i were there

    your heart is torn apart
    just stay right here
    next to me
    (He says stop letting herself be broken by attempting to find meaning in a meaningless relationship, just wait for him. It will be worth it. Just stay next to him)
    your heart is torn apart
    just stay right here
    next to me
    (He pleads stay with me don’t give up on me)

    well i guess i
    i can't walk past you
    my heart is torn too
    i guess i'll wait here
    (She says I guess I have to I have no other option, theres nothing she can do but wait. She is torn between trying to find happiness now and the hope that happiness will be with him in the future)
    i guess i
    i can't walk past you
    my heart is torn in two
    these pieces of you
    (She knows she just has to wait, her heart is torn between hating and loving him.)
    your heart is torn apart
    stay right here
    next to me
    (He consoles her just stay, just stay with me, I realize your hurting but in the end it will be okay, we are meant to be.)
