oh my god you’re a handful
and oh my god these hands are so small
oh my god I’m a handful
and oh my god your hands got so full of me
oh so completely

I thought what I need is a suitcase so I could pack this all away
I thought what I need is a cold place so when it snowed I could cuddle up to
someone I don’t know
someone I don’t know

But oh my god you’re a handful
And oh my god these hands are so small
Oh my god I’m a hand full
And oh my god your hands got so full of me
Oh so completely

I thought what I need is a break face for one whole year I burned so brightly
I thought what I need is a new place when I looked around this was the town
that I found
oh that I found

Believe me believe me when I say
I don’t want what I had yesterday
Believe me believe me when I say
I fell away for a month and one day
Believe me believe me when I say
I gave everything away
Believe me believe me when I say
I don’t want what I had yesterday

But oh my god you’re a handful
and oh my god these hands are so small
oh my god I’m a handful
and oh my god your hands got so full of me
Oh so completely

Oh my god
Oh my god
Oh my god
Oh my god
Oh my god
Oh my god

    General Commentto me I think this song means that its realizing that you dont want what you have anymore. and needing to break away.
    but I could be wrong.

    I love this song anyways :)

    General CommentI think this song is about having two intense relationships in a row.

    the singer thought it would be nice to have someone new...with no history between them
    and the drama of the last relationship could be 'packed away'. But the new relationship is more work than anticipated.

    General Commentyou could almost relate this song to drugs ( i mean just to sort of read it in a dif way from love/reationships) kind of how it can snow ball from just a good time here and there to more of a problem not to say that it lead to addiction but maybe to a point where ya start to realise its stop now or perhaps lose a whole lot more then ur prepared to

    'I thought what I need is a break face for one whole year I burned so brightly
    I thought what I need is a new place when I looked around this was the town
    that I found
    oh that I found'

    to me is kinda like holy shit ive bin partyin to hard for nearly a year and sort of wondering how it went so fast and how ur not really where u thought u would be and its time to put it all behind you and move on/away and grow up and get ur self sorted out

    i feel i could go on and on as to how these lyrics could be related to drugs but i somehow think that im prob not right but still i like to change it up abit

    General Comment"Oh my God, you're a handful, and oh my God, these hands are so small."
    I can't handle dealing with you right now.

    "Oh my God, I'm a handful, and oh my God, your hands got so full of me way too quickly."
    I know I am a lot to handle. You took it on too quickly. It was what you wanted.

    "I thought I needed a suitcase so I could pack this all away."
    I thought my last relationship was going to be hard to get over.
    I thought this would be hard to get over.

    "I thought I needed a cold place so when it snowed I could cuddle up to someone I don't know."
    I thought I needed someone new to get close to, to rely on.

    "I thought I needed a brave face. For one whole year, I burned so brightly."
    I thought I needed to make myself try a relationship again, so I did.
    I tried hard and I thought it was what you wanted.

    "I thought I needed a new place when I looked around this was the town that I found."
    I wanted to try a relationship again, and I ended up here with you.

    "Believe me when I say I don't want what I had yesterday."
    It turns out I don't want another close relationship.

    "Believe me when I say I fell awake for a month and one day."
    You & I worked for a little while, but I don't believe this can continue.

    "Believe me when I say I gave everything away."
    I threw away my doubts to give a relationship with you a solid chance.

    "Believe me when I say I don't want what I had yesterday."
    I was right the first time.
