Well I've been thinking about what I said
No baby, no need to talk about it
Well I've been playing it back in my head
No thanks, think I'll get by without it

Well I've been thinking about what I said
No baby, no need to talk about it
Well I've been rollin' around in your bed
No thanks, think I'll get by without it

You can't explain why you're feeling alone
Falling asleep to a dial tone
You dream about the trouble you're in
Then you pray that something fits

I wanna say that we're getting closer every day
You know you can't stop when you're racing the clock, c'mon
This heart's a bomb and we're setting it off, alright

They're handing me the numbers and figures, yeah
Try and calculate the ways I've been jaded
Nothing adds up so I end up frustrated
I'm giving up on love it's so overrated

You hear the knock, will you open the door?
You try and fight, but its hard to ignore
You fall apart; spill your heart on the floor
I think its time that we settled the score

Well the moment will come when you're all alone
Thats the moment I know when you'll say

    General CommentOmg Wow.

    To Me This Song Is About Some Kind Of Love
    'Well I've been thinking about what I said
    No baby, no need to talk about it
    Well I've been playing it back in my head
    No thanks, think I'll get by without it'

    That sounds as if someone has made him an offer...maybe to start a relationship but he's declined it.

    'Well I've been thinking about what I said
    No baby, no need to talk about it
    Well I've been rollin' around in your bed
    No thanks, think I'll get by without it'

    I think this refers to the sexual part of his relationship. and in the ends he decides he doesn't need it anymore.

    'You can't explain why you're feeling alone
    Falling asleep to a dial tone
    You dream about the trouble you're in
    Then you pray that something fits'

    I think this part is about the fact that shes now alone without him. She used to like the fun they could get into 'You dream about the trouble you're in'.

    Altogehter i think the song is just about how confusing love can be. MFH are bloody amazing.

    General Commentits about moving closer with someone. hint "closer" . i think. it could be they are moving to fast. closer everyday. it could be an adventure, they are setting it off. I love this song. i think thats what its about.

    i really like that part. its just some guy who is laying by his phone, hoping the girl he is in love with (tho they are just starting to get "close") will call, and randomly picking up the phone when he thinks he hears the phone ringing. but after a whole night of this he eventually falls asleep, leaving his dreams to take over his thoughts of this girl.

    General CommentI think this song is about him saying "I like you" and the girl did not respond as quickly as he would have like. So, he can't sleep, and he is worried because this could ruin everything. Then in the end, she realizes that she feels the same way (that they are getting closer).

    General Commentto me, its about how when people are really into each other but things just aren't working how they want it to. she wants to get physical (rolling around in your bed), he doesn't etc

    General Commenti agree with marliegirlie exept not the "physical" part thats just things they used to do and now he doesnt feel the same way about doin those anymore

    and the dial tone part
    i think its being hung up on cuz everyone knows noone can call when theres still a dial tone youd have to be linked to a person and if you have caller id it'll beep in
    so yeahh

    my opinion is they are kinda breaking apart and she doesnt necessarily want to...
