She's a liar,
But she's always right
And every night, she
Whispers something slowly
But I drift off
Sometimes I know you're awake
As you lay there right beside me
And lay there right beside me
Thinking maybe
You should be somewhere else...
But nowhere in this world
No, nowhere in this world
Will they offer
This at a second glance?
But this won't stand a chance
If you can't just open up

And if it's me, well...
Well, I guess I could change
We said we always could make
The best of anything
Well, here we are now
And things are not what they seem
But every night, I still dream of you
And I can't shake that, no...

Knock, knock, knock on the door
Is it someone you know?
Has he been here before?
No, it doesn't seem to matter cause you always seem to shatter
The glass that holds our
Innocence, so young...

If there's a chance now
That we could both find a way
Sometimes I think we're afraid
Of what's around the corner
Chasing all these
Empty feelings away
Will only make it better, and only make it better
Well, it happened
And there is so much to change
I guess that we're both to blame
For all these conversations
That have made us
Start to throw this away
Again, I know we can change
If we don't disappear

Knock, knock, knock on the door
Is it someone you know?
Has he been here before?
No, it doesn't seem to matter cause you always seem to shatter
The glass that holds our
Innocence, so young...

Knock, knock, knock on the door
Is it someone you know?
Has he been here before?
No, it doesn't seem to matter cause you always seem to shatter
The glass that holds our
Innocence, so young...

So young...

Knock, knock, knock on the door
Is it someone you know?
Has he been here before?
No, it doesn't seem to matter cause you always seem to shatter
The glass that holds our
Innocence, so young...

Knock, knock, knock on the door
Is it someone you know?
Has he been here before?
No, it doesn't seem to matter cause you always seem to shatter
The glass that holds our
Innocence, so young...

    General CommentOkay..
    I think its about a relationship that going down hill
    And he's trying to make it work but he's telling the girl that their relationship is gonna fall apart if she isnt going to try and help him fix it [But this won't stand a chance If you can't just open up.]
    He tells her that he'll change for her because he loves her and he still believs that they can make the best of anything like they said even tho shes giving up [And if it's me, well...Well, I guess I could change
    We said we always could make The best of anything.]
    Shes pretty much done with him and what they had and she's starting to see other people [Knock, knock, knock on the door Is it someone you know?
    Has he been here before?]
    He's upset becuase she just threw away what they had together like it was nothing and its not the first time[No, it doesn't seem to matter cause you always seem to shatter The glass that holds our Innocence, so young...]
    So now he's relizing what went wrong and he wishes he wouldnt have had some of the conversations that they had because thats what ended it [I guess that we're both to blame For all these conversations That have made us start to throw this away.]
    then he's telling her that he knows they can fix this if she gives him one more chance..and to not erase him from yher life cuz he knows that they can make it work this time [Again, I know we can change
    If we don't disappear.]

    Maybe? Idk.
    Love this song!
