If I make you wait
Will you leave a note that says
"I missed you again"
All apologies I owe
Have all losser words

We've become so desperate but silent
We're at our best
Only when we undress
I won't say a word cause I don't want to lose
What we have left

So I'll wait by your bedside
We can try our best
To be surprised
And don't feel too safe dear
Without the sheets we'd still be alone

If you'll be my love
I'll be your mistake
If you need your space
Then I'll face a distance
It's not that I'm great
I just finally realised that I
I've never, I've never been there for you

I stir my nerves with your favourite song
You always liked the slower ones
And oh do you ever hum it to yourself?

So I'll wait by your bedside
We can try our best
To be surprised
And don't feel too safe dear
Without the sheets we'd still be alone

If you'll be my love
I'll be your mistake
If you need your space
Then I'll face a distance
It's not that I'm great
I just finally realised that I
I've never, I've never been there for you

So we sleep for now
I know it's not safe but we do what it takes
Just to fall away
From the truth
From the pain

So I'll wait by you bedside
We can try our bed to be surprised
And don't feel too safe dear
Without the sheets we'd still be alone.

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship that started out good but went down overtime.

    Now all that is left is the physical side. "We're at our best Only when we undress" and "Without the sheets we'd still be alone."

    They are still trying to hold their relationship together and regret their mistakes, but they both know the end is inevitable.
