I know what shirt you were wearing when I first bared your bones
and in the light of the television, you were my own
did you think I would stay?
did you think I would go?
I was the one to make you aware of the things you ought to know
I was still waiting for the daylight when you appeared
and when I'd wrap my arms around you
I wasn't scared
I wasn't scared
I know just what I was drinking when I first was untrue
sea air, cheap beer, and some loneliness all mixed with curacao blue
did I think it would stay?
what happens there doesn't go
she was the one to make me aware of the things I ought to know
I was still waiting for the daylight when you appeared
and when I'd wrap my arms around you
I wasn't scared
I wasn't scared
it was a mistake that caused your heartache
I was just a kid, you were a kid as well
we were so young, but oh so serious
and I understand exactly why I fell: I didn't really want you or myself.
I was still waiting for the daylight when you appeared
and when I'd wrap my arms around you
I wasn't scared
I wasn't scared
I felt no fear
I wasn't scared at all

    General Commentabsolutely amazing song.
    very meaningful.
    just how he says
    "I was still waiting for the daylight when you appeared
    and when I'd wrap my arms around you
    I wasn't scared"
    melts me.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing.
    I think he’s talking about the night when he first cheated on his girlfriend,
    and how he was lonely, and drunk which led up to him cheating.
    A lot of his songs have references to being unfaithful.

    General CommentFantastic song. I particularly love the line "I understand exactly why I fell, i didn't really want you or myself."

    One quick lyric addendum, the line is "I was just a kid, you should have seen yourself" on the album version.
