Won't you please let me go
These words lie inside they hurt me so

I'm not the kind who likes to tell you just what you want me to
You're not the kind who needs to tell me about the birds and the bees

I saw you this morning I thought that you might like to know
I received your message in full a few days ago

Do you find this happens all of the time?
Crucial point one day becomes a crime

I've lost you

    General CommentI really like this song, I love how Nick can drive a song using only his voice.

    I've always thought that this song was about semi-lost love, the first line, "Won't you please let me go
    These words lie inside they hurt me so" is like he's saying that 'our love is dying, just stop trying' , and the last line "I've lost you" seems to reinforce this for me.

    Well, that's my two cents.
