Pretty Pretty, she looks so needy
She's calm in the face, but she's never forgetting every other time I've been
Angry, raging, clenched up hands
But I know better than to mix you in my raging cycle in this unstable mind

I don't want to let you down
I want this to feel the same
I don't want to let you down
I'm all that's in our way

Pretty Pretty, she's slowing fading
I've drained her empty and left her missing how I was when I was sane
I'm drowning in what I became
Stretched so thin that I am slowly tearing
I'm left unfulfilled and deteriorating

I don't want to let you down
I want this to feel the same
I don't want to let you down
I'm all that's in our way

Waiting, hoping, praying for a settle to this dizzy mind
Feeling that my sanity will be coupled with my demise

I don't want to let you down
I want this to feel the same
I don't want to let you down
I'm all that's in our way

    General CommentIts about a nonChristian girl, and the singer is her friend, and because of his double-facedness he draws her away from God, but at the same time he tries to win her back.

    General Commenti see your point but i got something different out of it. I think its about a guy who found the perfect girl-- "the one" --but is allowing the demons of his life to get in the way. It talks about how he drained her empty and about his "raging cycles".

    It seems as though god put this girl on his heart but he cannot get past some of the demons of his flesh. He feels unworthy- "I'm all that's in our way".

    He is praying for this "raging cycle" to end and for a "settle to this dizzy mind". If not anything else, this song is about the tormenting ability of the world.

    General CommentI agree with tdski5319 it almost sounds like he's with a girl and she's being hurt by his behaviours and it's leaving their relationship to fail because he can't make it out

    General Commenti actually agree with tdski5319 but to add on i think when he says "Feeling that my sanity will be coupled with my demise" he's saying that when he finally does calm down and get things right with himself, he loses her because its too late...this sadly is exactly what happened to me
