i have tried
my hopes have blossomed
and my hopes have fried,
i tried to cut them all down
but i found hopes were still living deep inside,
like a team of renegade lovers
working long hours sneaking around
with a belief in the life of our love,
like a light at the end at the end
of a long tunnel; a struggle

fist up!
for all their faith in one preceding a face,
they really do believe that if
they hang on long enough
that you'll come around
and finally let it show
and all their hopes will be rewarded
for their impetus to grow,
well utopian piece would fall across the land
you'll reach over for my hand,
you'll really want to hold my hand

And i don't want to come to the point of this song,
because the point of this song
would happen to be so long.

It gets hard:
the vigilantes can't agree on who's in charge,
they gave their souls for the cause
but the love that they were after is still at large
see this faith in which they found allegiance
ripping at the seams as hope is running it's course
the rebels just cant muster the force
to walk the thin line between belief and delusion
and

fists up! for all their faith
in one preceding a face
they really did believe
that if they've hung on long enough
that you'd come around
and finally let it show
and all their hopes would be rewarded
for their impetus to grow
utopian peace would fall across the land
you'd reach over for my hand,
you would've really wanted to hold my hand

and i don't want to come to the point of this song because the point of this song would happen to be so long[long long long long long long long]

It was perfect you know
with just one little problem
the fact that it turns out
you don't really want it
my love is a fortress,
my love is a Louvre
but it cant ever thrive
if i'm forced to keep proving it.

x3


[ahhh hahahh hahaahahahaa!]

    General Commentare you kidding? this song is amazing, why is there only one comment on it so far!?

    anyone who has been in a relationship where one party is willing to work out their differences but the other party isn't really concerned can relate. to have someone you love say "it's too much work/i don't care, let's just give up" is heartbreaking. to turn it into such an upbeat-sounding song is great.

    i think the whole meaning is pretty obvious. she's tried to stifle her hopes for the relationship, but deep down inside she loves him and wants it to work. she's got "a belief in the life of [their] love." she wants him to come around and reward her hopes for trying; that he'll "really want to hold [her] hand." she doesn't want to admit that it's a dead-end, hopeless relationship (the "point of the song" is to say goodbye).
    i absolutely love these lines and the way she sings them:
    "It was perfect you know
    with just one little problem
    the fact that it turns out
    you don't really want it."
    so concise, sums up any relationship that doesn't work out because one person doesn't care, whether it be an unrequited crush or a relationship that lasted for years.

    General Commenti think this song is amazing. i love the blow.. and the fact that many people don't know about it. however it sucks when i listen to them in my car and none of my friends know it... but basically this song means to me that the singer is talking about how she tries to display a nonchalant care about the relationship but deep inside wants to have one but has low expectations for it so she wont be let down... i've personally gone through this situation so many times and i like how the happy upbeat music contrasts with the concept.

    General CommentAs I was getting ready this morning, I popped on the blow and this was the first song that came up. I literally had to sit down and listen to the whole thing because It's my exact situation right now. Everyone has gone through it so anyone can relate. Its awesome, I love it.

    I was thinking of telling my boy to download it and see if he gets the hint!

    General CommentThe gist of this song reminds me a LOT of "Sentimental Tune" by Tegan & Sara.

    That makes me like it even more.
