And I don't want to talk to anyone but you
And tell you what I feel and the things I'm going through
And I want to be done to the things that drag me down
And I want to be done; I don’t want to sell out

‘Cause you are more than I could ever pretend
To know that the first thing about love and what it means
And I will hold on to your words forever
To know you, to see you, to touch you
You’re all I want
You’re all I need

I can’t ride this fence; it’s tearing me apart
One foot in, one foot out
I can’t keep this straight now
And I want to be done to the things that drag me down
And I want to be done; I don’t want to sell out

‘Cause you are more than I could ever pretend
To know that the first thing about love and what it means
And I will hold on to your words forever
To know you, to see you, to touch you
You’re all I want
You’re all I need

And I’ll do anything you want me to, I promise
Tell you what you want to hear if you just
Let me stay here with you forever
It’s where I want to be

I want to know you, I want to see you
I can feel it, I want to touch you
I want to know you, I want to see you
I can feel it, I want to touch you
I want to touch you
You

    General CommentI think this is about how he thinks he loves this girl, but he doesn't want to say "I love you" untill he is absolutely sure about it. The "One foot in, one foot out" statement shows his uncertainty of the situation. he doesn't want to sell-out, meaning that he doesnt want to say the words just because he can. I love this song, it brings a smile to my face everytime it comes on. You can tell the guy really cares about the girl and that is why he is having such a hard time, he doesn't want to say the words untill he is absolutely sure, that way he can't hurt her as much in the end. Just my thoughts :)
