Does he know all the things I say to you?
Or am I just wasting my breath on some unspoken truth?
Don't expect me to heal your wounds,
'Cause I don't wanna hear my name,
When you're alone, alone, alone again.
I just wanna feel the same, feel the same, feel the same.

'Cause if you ever go...
I don't think I'll have the strength to follow.
While I've been watching the world we think we know, fall apart.
I've been trying my best to stop asking myself what all of this is for.
'Cause I ain't in the business of saving lives anymore.

I don't think I'm ready to see,
To see the distance between actual, and eventually.
'Cause I've never really been who I was supposed to be,
'Cause all I really wanted to hear is that you feel the same,
I wanna learn to breathe again every time I hear your name.

'Cause if you ever go...
I don't think I'll have the strength to follow.
While I've been watching the world we think we know, fall apart.
I've been trying my best to stop asking myself what all of this is for.
'Cause I ain't in the business of saving lives anymore.

Would this have ever made any sense,
Tell me is it still a mistake to speak of you in the present tense?
And though your kiss still feels more like love, than it does regret.
I don't wanna hear my name,
When you're alone, alone, alone again.
I just wanna feel the same, feel the same, feel the same.

'Cause if you ever go...
I don't think I'll have the strength to follow,
While I've been watching the world we think we know, fall apart.
I've been trying my best to stop asking myself what all of this is for.
'Cause I ain't in the business of saving lives anymore.

    General Commenti think that maybe in every relationship he's had, jamison ends up with people that have issues and stuff because he has so much love to give for whatever reason.
    like maybe he really wants someone he can 'save' or just make whatever's wrong better, cause that's a good feeling to help someone like that.
    i don't know if anyone can relate

    but he's realizing they may be taking advantage of how much he truly cares.
    ' i don't wanna hear my name when you're alone'

    sort of like that saying:
    don't make someone your priority when you're their only option

    or however it goes..
