You shouldn’t be here
I feel awkward and good
To be near you
Watch you rip through
Paper wood

Time may stall
And I may be late
I want it now
But I guess I can wait

You by the bicycle
I hear you coming over for food
Feed my appetite
My mouth full of you

Time may stall
And I may be late
I want it now
But I guess I can wait

La ra ra ra raaa
La ra ra ra raaa
La ra ra ra raaa
But I guess I can wait

La ra ra ra raaa
La ra ra ra raaa
La ra ra ra raaa
But I guess I can't wait

You shouldn't be here
I feel awkward ...

    General CommentSounds like a song about cheating.

    General Commentsounds to me like forbidden love, whether it's cheating or not. "you shouldn't be here, i feel awkward and good"; if you weren't here, i wouldnt have this internal struggle over whether to be with you or to avoid you. the chorus confuses me a little, but i think he's saying time may move really fast or really slow, depending on how "awkward" or "good" it is, but either way, he really wants this forbidden girl right now, but he'll have to wait, meaning she doesn't like him as much as he likes her. i think that further points to how he wish she weren't there, because knowing his desire for her isnt reciprocal just hurts him a lot

    General CommentThe lyrics are awesome, but the musical feel of the drums and guitar in the background make an incredibly intense emotional feeling. You can feel the music pulling at your soul, especially once its the vamp after the chorus and its just him humming with the guitar and the drums and it builds and builds. You can feel your heartstrings get pulled.

    General CommentI think it's the same girl described in Accidental Babies or 9 Crimes. He has a girlfriend so he feels good but awkward to be with this girl. He wants to be with her but feels it may be too late now because he is with someone else, and she's probably with someone as well, but he wants her so he can wait until they're both free.
    I think this song is about thinking of cheating but not doing it (at least for now). But it is too hard for him to be near her so I think he will eventually end up cheating at some point (Accidental Babies or 9 Crimes).
