I know you, I want to
Please don’t leave, marry me
I know why, in your eyes
Can you see, marry me

Ten times I sat back down
Eloquence in the mirror, it’s all around
This is so sad to say, it happens everyday
You’re two steps away, come over and play
So I asked you twice like you begged me to
I locked the door even though they knew
I liked the way that you used to smile
I liked the way that we’d walk for miles

These are the hardest times
Everything that you said is on my mind
Tell me how to sleep when I still see
The day you walked in the door and looked at me
You smiled like a girl that I once knew
Everything that we did was all for you
I wanna know what it means to need somebody
But it looks like we were never meant to be

Cause everything was right and everything was wrong
Yeah I’m sitting so happy now until it’s gone
These are the things that are meant to be
And you’re the only one that I don’t believe
Cause everyday you smile and everyday you lie
And now I’m inside out, you never wonder why
Just tell me everything doesn’t have to be
And tell me why I’m sad when you’re kissing me

I know you, I want to
Please don’t leave, marry me
I know why, in your eyes
Can you see, marry me

Everything was right and everything was wrong
Only six months ago you know I wrote this song
It was all about all these happy things
But I rewrote the words more honestly
Cause I can’t decide what I wanna do
Should I call you up or should I just hate you
I’m on the floor pressed against the tile
But I’ll be okay; I’ll force myself to smile

She’s sad and I can see
Maybe I should show some sympathy
But I frown when her cell telephone rings
Cause I like the pain that a smile can bring
It’s not right, but I’m fiend’n for it too
You know the words that I speak may not be true
Pretend that you think that I’m unique
Yeah I smile once again and I kiss your cheek

Cause everything was right and everything was wrong
Yeah I’m sitting so happy now until it’s gone
These are the things that are meant to be
And you’re the only one that I don’t believe
Cause everyday you smile and everyday you lie
And now I’m inside out, you never wonder why
Just tell me everything doesn’t have to be
And tell me why I’m sad when you’re kissing me

I know you, I want to
Please don’t leave, marry me
I know why, in your eyes
Can you see, marry me

    thats definitly talking about the past, and how it was perfect but nothing ever stays that way. he wants to make it known that he can make it without her and how he knows where he needs to be, even if she isn't with him.

    General Commenti think the song is about him and his girlfriend or fiance or whatever, ending their relationship due to complications. i think that he found out that she was cheating on him or lying about something, and he got really mad and did something really bad that caused her to leave him. i think that he regrets what he did and is debating whether or not to try and get her back or to just move on and forget about her.

    OR HERE IS ANOTHER THEORY...

    it also kind of sounds like the two had some sort of a complicating relationship and the girl was hurt about something in that relationship. but instead of sharing her feelings, she just pretended like everything was fine. and then she broke up with him without giving him the real reason why.
    and when he says "please dont leave, marry me" in the chorus, i think he is asking the girl not to leave him because he loves her so much and it is almost as if he is promising her that things between the two of them will be better. i dont know if that makes too much sense, but whatever.

    beautifully written, He is possibly still in contact with this ex, "like a girl he once knew" shes a different person than she was when they were together, it almost always seems that way when you leave a relationship, the way you are treated after is confusing, the affection is gone...
