it started with a whisper
it's you, i guess
outside my house at 3 am
consider this your last chance
now it seems
you're choking on each word you said to me

so write these words down
cause i know you won't hear me
nothing ever changes
you won't get over this

i'll keep you around
keep you in touch
keep you from not expecting this much
i'll keep you in mind
you're wasting time
you're asking me to come back here tonight
i'll keep you around
i'll keep you around

it's only 7:30, you already called
you're telling me "we're best friends" "we're perfect"
but i wouldn't agree to it
oh i guess we're cool for now
but you're begging for attention from anybody somehow

write these words down
cause i know you won't hear me
nothing's gonna change
you won't get over this

i'll keep you around
keep you in touch
keep you from not expecting this much
i'll keep you in mind
you're wasting time
you're asking me to come back here tonight
i'll keep you around
i'll keep you around

so get the picture when you're ahead
i got the message over my bed
i told you once, there's no excuse
you've renewed this wreck
i didn't want to tell you

i'll keep you around

i'll keep you around
keep you in touch
keep you from not expecting this much
keep you in mind
you're wasting time
you're asking me to come back here tonight

i'll keep you around
keep you from not expecting this much
i'll keep you in mind
you're wasting time
you're asking me to come back here tonight

ill keep you around
keep you in touch
keep you from not expecting this much
i'll keep you in mind
you're wasting time
you're asking me to come back here tonight

    General CommentEither the girl broke up with the guy, and she regrets it, so she keeps coming back, or the boy broke up with her, and she wants him back.

    Or, I'm completely off. I wouldn't know because no one else has bothered to comment this song.

    I love this song, though. TFNB are great.

    General Commenthaha totally reminds me of when this guy I know went out with his best friend, dumped her right before prom, but they still went together. Then they got back together and broke up again two days later. She's still not over him.

    My InterpretationWell. I think this song, is about A girl who, has had an on/off relationship with the vocalist, and he's tired of playing games.
    "consider this your last chance
    now it seems
    you're choking on each word you said to me" - saying this, i think would mean that this is the last chance he's giving her, i mean you can only give a person so many chances, am i right?

    And ,He can predict every move, she'll make because she's done it so many times before. ---> "nothing's gonna change."

    Also. -"you're wasting time" - Here, i bring back that he knows what she's going to say, so she's wasting her time.

    lmao. sorry this kinda sucked, but i wanted to put out what i thought this song meant, xD


    >_>
