Many are the hours I lie awake
Trash the room in vain
Try to waste the energy I never spend on you
Lying on this bed, never touch, not right now
If I'm over this by morning
That's a future I can't see

Well I'm gonna hate to see you go
But I've been impossible, I know
Yeah I'm gonna hate to see you go
But I know you're just waiting

When you're young you decide
What you can and cannot take
Promises that you made
That you wish you wouldn't break
This was over, long before we met
This was over, long before

Well I'm gonna hate to see you go
But I've been impossible, I know
Yeah I'm gonna hate to see you go
But I know you're just waiting

See, you are waiting
This was over long before we met
See, you are waiting
This was over long before we met
See, you are waiting
See, you are waiting now

Well I'm gonna hate to see you go
But I've been impossible, I know
I'm gonna hate to see you go
But you will
Oh, you will

Many are the hours I lie awake

I'm gonna hate to see you go, oh oh

This was over long before we met

    General CommentThis song is the best! I loved it right the very first time I heard it. If I made any mistakes, feel free to submit the LINE(S) that I messed up on, NOT THE WHOLE SONG.

    General CommentI love this song, I see the story as, when you're in love with someone so much that it frustrates you to the point where you become impossible to be around, but you don't know how to change...I dunno, just my view on it!

    General Commenti think its about young love
    like the promises they made and about how they are growing up and have to part ways for the best, even though they dont really want to.
    its over before they met because thats the way it always happens.

    General CommentI agree with heyjanaa for the most part, but the part starting with "See, you are waiting" kinda makes it seem like hope for the relationship, so in a sense, it could be that he's torn between staying with someone and leaving them.

    General Commentto me this songs shows me of a time when someone would have a friends with benefits kind of thing but both would always want a relationship but they never want to ruin what the have.. so they stop everything. it's over before they met.
