You’re pushing me out
You’re pushing me when all I do is not enough
All I do is not enough for you
You’ve pushed me down
You’ve pushed me down
Well I’ll try and I’ll try again
I’ll try and I’ll try again for you

This distance won’t keep your words from screaming my name
This distance won’t keep your words from smothering me
If I could keep you out
If I could keep you...

You’re pushing me out
You’re pushing me when all I do is not enough
All I do is not enough for you
You’ve pushed me down
You’ve pushed me down
Well I’ll try and I’ll try again
I’ll try and I’ll try again for you

Your throat is worn away
You’re still screaming my name
You scream relentlessly
If I could keep you out
If I could keep you…

You’re pushing me out
You’re pushing me when all I do is not enough
All I do is not enough for you
You’ve pushed me down
You’ve pushed me down
Well I’ll try and I’ll try again
I’ll try and I’ll try again for you

You pushed me then pulled me back to where we started (where we started)
You pushed me then pulled me back to where we started (where we started)
You pushed me then pulled me back
Back to where we started
Back to where we started
Lost, confused from this abuse
Back to where we…

You’re pushing me out
You’re pushing me when all I do is not enough
All I do is not enough for you
You’ve pushed me down
You’ve pushed me down
Well I’ll try and I’ll try again
I’ll try and I’ll try again for you

You’ve pushed me out
You’ve pushed me out (I’ll try and I’ll try again
I’ll try and I’ll try again for you)
You’ve pushed me out
You’ve pushed me out (I’ll try and I’ll try again
I’ll try and I’ll try again for you)

You pushed me then you pulled me back to where we started
(where we started)
Well I’ll try and I’ll try again
I’ll try and I’ll try again for you
You pushed me then you pulled me back to where we started
(where we started)
Well I’ll try and I’ll try again
I’ll try and I’ll try again for you

(I'll try and I'll try again for you)

    General CommentIf you haven't heard this song & want to go here: subnoizestore.com/mm5/…
    scroll down & go to the music player then click the last song. :) They may take it down fairly soon though..

    I tried my best on the lyrics. I couldn't understand one part w/ the screams though. Forgive me if I got anything else wrong.

    As for the meaning of the song, I believe it's about relationship problems. I'm not going to get very detailed so I'll just let someone else explain what this song means.

    General CommentOkay I'll try to be more detailed thsi time. ahem!
    I think its about a girl who puts everything into the relationship she's in, but he keeps pushing her away. Even though he keeps pushing her away, she keeps trying again and again to make it work, but they always end up back where they started.
    I think, lol.

    General CommentYep, I agree.

    I also think it's about a girl that puts everything she can into a relationship and the guy just keeps pushing her away, because he thinks everything she does isn't good enough. She knows that he's treating her badly and unfairly. But as soon as he starts calling for her to come back, she'll come running back to him because she wants to make it work.

    "You pushed me then you pulled me back to where we started"
    It's an endless cycle. He'll push her away then he'll call back for her and she'll come back again, until eventually they're right back where they started and the cycle will start over again.

    General CommentI think this song can be put as either family or relationship. I relate to it both ways.

    Being with a guy where everytime you start getting close and keep trying to make it work and be what he wants he brings you down and as much as it hurts you keep going because you really want to be with him.

    With a family like in my case my mom always pushes me and tries to make me be who she wants and i try to please her but i can only try so much because any time we make progress i go back to "where we started"

    General CommentIt explains my relationship perfectly!
    It's about an abusive relationship.
    The guy is being so cold and abusive to her but she keeps on trying because she's convinced that she loves him.

    General CommentI think that the song is about a relationship, any type of relationship, where one person tries really hard to please the other but they never get any appreciation for what they do.

    Your pushing me when all I do is not enough
    (they don't get appreciated for their effort)
