Tear those pictures off the wall
I don't think I will need them all again
I think the problem here is there's nothing wrong
I guess that I can coast along for now

Bit more, there's something missing
I'm missing the point I did before

I'm sorry that I'm always the one to let you down again
And I feel so ashamed
It should have been easy
(I feel so low)
And I want you to know
That I won't let go again
(I feel so low)

You were the first to knock me down
In a way I guess we're even now
And I know I only used that first to justify
But maybe that's not just a lie
who knows

Bit more, There's something missing
I'm missing the point I did before

I'm sorry that I'm always the one to make you feel that burn
And I feel so ashamed
This used to be easy
(I feel so low)
But I want you to know
That I won't let go again
(I feel so low)

I feel so tired, tired
You get so tired, tired
You get so tired, tired
tired, tired

And I feel so ashamed
It should have been easy
(I feel so low)
And I want you to know
That I won't let go again
(I feel so low)

And I feel so ashamed
This used to be easy
(I feel so low)
But I want you to know
That I won't let go again
(I feel so low)

    General Commentit actually kind of seems like it's about his bulimia or something..

    Tear those pictures off the wall
    I don't think I will need them all again
    - maybe he's looking back on older pictures where he was kind of bigger? and now he's not, he's found a 'cure' so he can get rid of all of them because they're embarrassing and that's not who he is anymore.

    probably completely wrong? but it kindddd of seems like that hah

    My InterpretationFor me, I think of how I am letting people down by being addicted to cough medicine and just a lot of other shit that's happened to me and this is what I listen to when I feel really bad about letting someone down.

    General Commenti deffinaly think it's about letting someone down

    You were the first to knock me down
    In a way I guess we're even now
    And I know I only used that first to justify
    But maybe that's not just a lie
    who knows

    someones hurt him & now he hurt them back. not on purpose but the other person shouldnt be as mad cause they're even. but he still feels awful?

    General CommentI think it may be about in a relationship or something, where he thought it would be perfect and all kittens and rainbows, but it wasn't, he screwed it up, he hurt the girl, and he feels terrible and wants her forgiveness.

    General Commenti definitely think this is about his bulimia. it could be about a person but i don't think so, i have bulimia and it sounds he is constantly relapsing. it's like a letter to himself. that he will try harder to recover this time.
    that is just my opinion.

    My InterpretationI think it's almost like he's talking to one of the problems he used to have and when he says things like "you were first to knock me down" and "I know I only used that first to justify" like he's blaming that one thing for everything that happened after or something, I don't know just a thought.
