Don't lie to me
Don't make it up
Don't snake it up
Don't snake it up
My friend

Stay with me
Lay with me
Be true to me
Be true to me my love

Now I'm young
I got nothing to lose
I'm gonna follow
I'm following my muse

You're the older one
You're older by now
You're one got some
You're one got some to prove

Well it's only me
It's only me now
I cannot change you
But time will
My heart it will
Not stand still

I cannot hold
A half a life
I cannot be
At half a wife
[Repeat]

    General CommentI'm pretty sure a lot of these are wrong, but I have no clue what's actually being said.

    My InterpretationDespite te fact that, yeah, this lyrics misses something (something gibberish anyway), it's a song about living in a relationship without balance, with confused roles.
    I personally had relationship like that and this song explained perfectly my feelings

    it's about living with someone older and scared about feelings and relationships and being the younger yet smarter one.

    the younger one ask his love not to lie to him, not to make things unecessary complicated.
    he's young and he doesn't have nothing to lose, he wants to follow his lover ("his muse"), to share things with him and to slow down things and relax ("lay with me"), maybe in a childish way but he knows how to make things work.

    the older one is the one that got experience and despite his age is the one who still have something to prove, something to learn: maybe improving his behaviour ("don't lie to me, don't sneak it up") ("can't be at half a wife")

    His misbehaviour eventually leads to the end of the relationship (maybe the older one wanted it, but he didn't have the guts to take the decision) and the younger one says he has to think about himself now, that he cannot fix the situation but time will, maybe he's still hurt but he moves on ("my heart won't stand still"), still thinking about him and the pointless situation ("cannot hold half a life / be at half a wife" it explains a unfair situation between them) and wishing time will change things he couldn't.

    still, i have an alternative interpretation of that "i cannot chage you but time WILL", that will sounds pretty harsh, something like "you'll think about this one day and you'll regret, but i won't be here anymore" ("my heart won't stay still")


    it's a great song. helped me figure out things in harsh times.
