"Maybe" as written by and Clinton Blair Harris Matthew Dean Treacy....
So what's this big secret you can't tell me
I don't wanna piece of this

Haven't we all had enough
Enough for one day
I don't wanna argue with you
You've got me shiverin' in my spine

[Chorus]
If everything turned out as we had said
We wouldn't have to sit through any of this
Maybe I would be a better fit in my own skin

I'm not gonna try to divide or ignore you
And the pieces of the puzzle that never seem to fit

I'm not playin' hangman with you
I've run out of letters, let alone words
You've got me shiverin' in my spine

If everything turned out as we had said
We wouldn't have to sit here talkin' like this
Maybe I would be a better fit in my own skin
Maybe

If everything turned out as we had planned
We wouldn't have to go through any of this
Maybe it'll be more simple than you could ever think

So stay right where you are
We're snoozin' through an alarm
Make no sudden movements
Just tell me where we are
‘Cause here I am
There you are
Snoozin' through an alarm
Snoozin' through an alarm

If everything turned out as we had said
We wouldn't have to go through any of this
Maybe

Maybe… (oh…)
Maybe… (oh…)
Maybe… (oh…)
Oh…

Maybe… (oh…)
Maybe… (oh…)
Maybe… (oh…)
Oh…

Maybe… (oh…)
Maybe… (oh…)
Maybe… (oh…)
Oh…

    General Comment*agrees.. Indeed a most beautiful song.

    Although, I'm of two minds as to what it's about..
    One one hand it could be a couple in the midst of a breakup where one is fighting against it.

    On the other it sounds like someone talking to the person they want to be with but can't for some reason. They're trying to convince them to 'get it sorted' so they can be together..

    Thoughts?

    General CommentI have to say the way I look at it it's kind of like a song about a couple that's at a point where they're fighting her insecurities. So lets say it's a guy singing to a girl.. she's at a point where he's getting in deeper to her but she doesn't want that. At this point they argue because she refuses to let him in.

    With that said, he's saying that he'll never judge her, ignore her etc. So here he is, waiting patiently for her to figure out what he means to her and to tell him what he means to her. He's done everything he can, told her everything he could and now the decision of their relationship is up to her sort of thing.
