are you waiting for something
'cause there's a tension in the air
something unresolved
i can smell it in your hair
so step down, look around
you can leave it all behind
and never hear another sound

say you're holding onto someone
that will never show you the same

so don't say a word
that i wouldn't say
crumble it all
and throw it away
we're just wasting time
we're taking up space
so don't say a word
that i wouldn't say to you

are you breathing for nothing
'cause there's a vision in my eye
something unresolved
i swear it feels like this could die
i can see to a degree
a broken back is only something
if you did it saving me
so you're holding onto nothing
and it's showing all over your face

so don't say a word
that i wouldn't say
just crumble it all
and throw it away
we're just wasting time
we're taking up space
so don't say a word
that i wouldn't say to you, to you

so don't say a word
that i wouldn't say
just crumble it all
and throw it away
we're just wasting time
we're taking up space
so don't say a word
that i wouldn't say to you
that i wouldn't say to you
that i wouldn't say to you

    General CommentWow, I'm the first, amazing song. I think it is about two people in a relationship where one of them is not fully "there." The girl is still stuck in a past relationship and her heart isn't in her current one. And the guy is basically saying unless you're in it we are really just wasting our time with this. At least that is what I think.
