I feel the ropes are getting tighter, it's not a bad idea
These chains will never hold me down, so lets just make this clear
So step it up and make me fight it, and I'll scare you all the time
Don't stop, just carry on and I know I'll be just fine

Love you and leave you's what I'll do
One day I'm coming, not a clue

You've tired me out, by tying me down, Woah, woah
You've tired me out, by tying me down, Woah, woah

You feel my hands are getting tighter, getting ever nearer
Scream when you've had enough, I couldn't see this clearer
Your life is slipping through my fingers
Push you up against the wall
Do I stop or just carry on?
Will you ever take it off?

Love you and leave you's what I'll do
One day I'm coming, not a clue.

You've tired me out, by tying me down, Woah, woah
You've tired me out, by tying me down, Woah, woah

I'm so close, scream for me
I'm so close, scream for me
I'm so close, scream for me

You've tired me out, by tying me down, Woah, woah
You've tired me out, by tying me down, Woah, woah
You've tired me out, by tying me down
You've tired me out, by tying me down
You've tired me out, by tying me down
You've tired me out, by tying me down
Tying me down
Tying me down

    General CommentThis song is amazing, and for a long time it seems like a metaphor, but it also sounds like it's almost describing an attempted rape. Also, the song seems to have two different characters, the character that sings the first verse and the chorus, and the character that sings the second verse and "I'm so close, scream for me". Just my thoughts.

    General CommentI never thought about it like that before... also fits with the dual vocals. (Okay, images in my head I did NOT want to see...)

    But I think the 'One day I'm coming, not a clue' is actually 'one day I'm gone without a clue,' which fits the 'love you and leave you' better.
    I like that bit 'cause if you're half listening, it sounds like 'one day I'm coming down to Crewe,'which is where I live... I wait in hope! (:
