"The Quiet" as written by David Katz, Travis Clarke and Sam Hollander....
I'll stand
On my own two feet
Against you girl
I just can't walk away

I said
I can't take it that easy
Wanna break you down tonight
Don't wanna waste another day

And it's not over just yet

Give me this
One last fighting chance
To crash the wall
I'll get to you
You are a war
Worth dying for
Tonight

Give me this
One last fighting chance
To be the kid
Who caved you in
It'd be so easy
To lose myself to you

Quiet
I will be
So sure
Calling your bluff
I think you lost
Your will to fight

And you know
I'll storm
Through your castles doors
Cause you know that I'm good for you
And you're scared of what you'll find

A love you won't regret

Give me this
One last fighting chance
To crash the wall
I'll get to you
You are a war
Worth dying for
Tonight

Give me this
One last fighting chance
To be the kid
Who caved you in
It'd be so easy
To lose myself to you

So open up
Your friendly fire
And let me be
The kill you're missing
Don't wanna see you
Close your eyes
Until this is over

Give me this
One last fighting chance
To crash the wall
I'll get to you
You are a war
Worth dying for
Tonight

Give me this
One last fighting chance
To be the kid
Who caved you in
It'd be so easy
To lose myself to you

    General Commenthow am i only the 2nd comment?!
    (: looove this song.

    i think its about a guy wanting a chance from a girl + that he will do anything for her and wants to show her that.

    just taking a guess here.

    General Commentif you read the lyrics over, it actually does seem like this song's about sex.
    "Wanna break you down tonight"
    "To be the kid who caved you in
    It'd be so easy to lose myself to you"
    "A love you won't regret"
    "And let me be the kill you're missing"

    General Commentthis song reminds me of feeling infinite. I stole the word from the perks of being a wallflower, but thats how I feel.
    its beautiful and I love we the kings very much.
    and it does sound like sex =]

    General Commenti'm totally listening to this right now.

    it's about a boy trying to convince a girl to have sex with him. He's saying that he thinks she's worth it. and he's telling her that he knows she's tired of fighting it, and she wants to do it, and that she won't regret it.

    General CommentIts about liking someone, and they like you too, but they dont want to.
    This is my song right now.. I'm head over heels for this girl and she likes me too but she has a boyfriend and we're kinda long distant and the moment and its sad because I'm watching her fight herself to try not to like me =/
    I hope it all works out....

    "you know that I'm good for you, but you're scared of what you'll find... a love you won't regret"

    My InterpretationI believe the song is about a girl who has this emotional wall built up but really likes this guy, though she won't let anyone in. This guy really likes her and knows she likes him too somehow, and he's trying to prove to her just how much he really likes her and cares about her (: I could be wrong, but that's my situation and I found my ability to identify with the song as I listened to it. But if you think about it, that MIGHT be what the song could be about.
