honest to god
i don’t even remember...
i don’t think that i’ve
ever felt this way;
honest, today,
i don’t even know my name;
i had to fall on the floor
for your hands to reach for me;
you tell me how you’d love
for me to stay;
you say it a lot, but
she used to say the same;

i believed her
and i’m starting to think
that i’ll believe you too,
but first i have to know...

that you’ll leave me whole;
just leave me whole
and i’ll be alright;
never let me go
and let me know if i ever might;
and i need you to know
to just wait for me to trust
and hold on because
no matter what you say
you can’t stop the world
that’s in my head;

i’ve lied when i’ve said
’i love you’ before...
with you, i don’t have
to lie anymore...

    General Comment"Honest to god
    I don't even remember,
    I don’t think that I’ve
    Ever felt this way;"

    A man is having strong feelings for someone, obviously.

    "Honest, today,
    I don’t even know my name;"

    He is so blind and dubious around her that he is oblivious to obvious things like his name.

    "I had to fall on the floor
    For your hands to reach for me;"

    He had to do something big to have her finally notice her.

    "You tell me how you’d love
    For me to stay;
    You say it a lot, but
    She used to say the same;"

    She'd start to say that he loved him but then again his past girlfriend had said that a lot too and he's not sure if he should trust her, like he did for his past relationship.

    "I believed her
    And I’m starting to think
    That I’ll believe you too,
    But first I have to know..."

    He believe his past girlfriend and he is starting to believe the new girl in his life.

    "That you’ll leave me whole;
    Just leave me whole"

    He is hoping that this relationship won't break him like his last one did. He is hoping that this time he won't break in the end and just be left "whole".

    "And I’ll be alright;
    Never let me go"

    Then everything will be all fine if the girl will just be able to maintain the relationship strong.

    "And let me know if I ever might;
    And I need you to know
    To just wait for me to trust
    And hold on because
    No matter what you say
    You can’t stop the world
    That’s in my head;"

    He is saying that he is still shaken from his last relationship and so he wants the new girl to wait for him to heal because she can't rush what's going on inside his own self.


    "I’ve lied when I’ve said
    ’I love you’ before...
    With you, I don’t have
    To lie anymore..."

    He wasn't true when he said he loved someone before but now he thinks he doesn't have to lie about it anymore.
