If you wanted to get things over and done with
That's alright
If you think that it's washed up, rinsed out and spun with
Well, not quite

If you feel you've done enough
If you feel you've done enough

It's enough
That's the game
It's the rules that stop us going insane
It's the smile
It's the race
It's the notches that we carve on our face

But did I tell you that?

Nothing matters but the momentary touch of your hand
Nothing matters but the times you do as much as you can
Nothing matters but the softness of your skin
And you're really not aware of the trouble that we're in

If you wanted to try things, whisper it dryly
And I might
Now, if you think that I'm different, just ever so slightly
Then you're right

If you think you've said enough
If you think you've said enough
It's enough
That's the game
It's the reason that we lost when we played
It's the sleep
That I lose
It's a lifetime spent avoiding the news

But did I tell you that?

Nothing matters but the momentary touch of your hand
Nothing matters but the times you do as much as you can
Nothing matters but the softness of your skin
And you're really not aware of the trouble that we're in

It's enough
That's the game
It's the rules that stop us going insane
It's the smile
It's the race
It's the notches that we carve on our face
It's enough
That's the game
It's the reason that we lost when we played
It's the sleep
That I lose
It's a lifetime spent avoiding the news

And you're really not aware of the trouble that we're in
No, you're really not aware of the trouble that we're in

    General CommentWhy the hell are there no comments about this? Such an amazing song, even by Mesh's standards. What does it mean? I feel it's the story of two who are in a sour relationship, not because of a loss of love, but because of compiling and unresolved feelings between the two. They fight and fight, but when they can forget about the pain, their love is all that matters. So beautiful.
