Tell me that we'll be fine
Just cover up my eyes
For me
Tell me another lie
You know that i don't mind
Fool me

I, I, I, I, I, I, need this
I need this

If it is just for show
Dont ever tell me so
I beg you
Say what I want to hear
Cover my burning ears
From the truth

I, I, I, I, I, I, need this
I need this

So give me something to believe
The slightest word is all i need
Do all you can to keep me blind
And i'll pretend that i'm alright
I'm in the dark
So let me stay
Just tell me to turn away

Let me believe in you
You know that I want to
Hold on
I see it in your eyes
But i'd rather live a lie
Than say goodbye

I, I, I, I, I, I, need this
I need this

So give me something to believe
The slightest word is all i need
Do all you can to keep me blind
And i'll pretend that i'm alright
I'm in the dark
So let me stay
Just tell me to turn away

I need this

    General Commenti'm really suprised no one has commented on this song yet. it says what a lot of people can not and in such a beautiful way. the song sounds to me almost desperate and pleading. so, here's my outlook on it:

    "Tell me that we'll be fine
    Just cover up my eyes
    For me
    Tell me another lie
    You know that i don't mind
    Fool me"

    {to me this says that he's in a relationship with a girl who's either not exactly faithful to him, or doesn't really feel for him in the way he does for her, but to him that doesn't matter. he'd rather be lied to, bcuz the lies are what's keeping him going. he'd rather be in love with a lie than not be in love at all.}

    "I, I, I, I, I, I, need this
    I need this"

    {again, he needs this relationship to keep going.}

    "If it is just for show
    Dont ever tell me so
    I beg you
    Say what I want to hear
    Cover my burning ears
    From the truth"

    {he's pleading with his girl that, if she's really just doing this to have a boyfriend and doesn't actually care about him, he'd rather not know. he'd rather have her lie.}

    "I, I, I, I, I, I, need this
    I need this"

    {same as above.}

    "So give me something to believe
    The slightest word is all i need
    Do all you can to keep me blind
    And i'll pretend that i'm alright
    I'm in the dark
    So let me stay
    Just tell me to turn away"

    {he doesn't need much to believe in this lie. just a word, a phrase, a sentence. that's all it'll take to keep him going. even if he know its not true. he'll pretend he's okay. and when she cant keep up the act, he'll just leave until she's ready for him again.}

    "Let me believe in you
    You know that I want to
    Hold on
    I see it in your eyes
    But i'd rather live a lie
    Than say goodbye"

    {maybe she's feeling guilty about all of this and she wants to break it off. but he just wants to pretend. he'd rather live a lie than say goodbye, pretty straightforward.}

    "I, I, I, I, I, I, need this
    I need this

    So give me something to believe
    The slightest word is all i need
    Do all you can to keep me blind
    And i'll pretend that i'm alright
    I'm in the dark
    So let me stay
    Just tell me to turn away

    I need this"

    {all the same as above.}

    now. thats just how i look at it, maybe i'm wrong. but it seems pretty straightforward to me. amazing song. hope to see them live sometime. (=

    General Commentooh, just something i forgot to say is that im pretty sure all of us have dealt with something like this. where we realize that someone doesnt actually care about us. i know i have before and thats probably why its so beautiful. it really speaks to the listener. (= but thats just my two cents.
    great song.
