I don't know how to put this right
except we're screaming at the stoplights now
and I can't breathe, woo

I got the notion through all this commotion
that I was in the wrong
through trial and error
I found myself holding on to the things I hate

if I had a dime for every apology
that was never said I'd be a rich man

where do I go when no ones home
where do I run when I'm alone, alone
where do I hide when I'm afraid
Afraid the world is gonna change without me

I strategize, playing tic tac toe or dominos
anything to get me through the day
I strategize, playing tic tac toe or dominos
anything to get me through the day

this is me trying to live my life
by your standards, your god awful standards
they wear me down, ohh

where do I go when no ones home
where do I run when I'm alone, alone
where do I hide when I'm afraid
Afraid the world is gonna change without me

where do I go when no ones home
where do I run when I'm alone, alone
where do I hide when I'm afraid
Afraid the world is gonna change without me

    General Commentit's "afraid the world is gonna change without me"

    the song is pretty obvious imo.
    he can't keep up with his partner's standards and they're always screaming at each other because of it.
    he "strategizes" how he will make it work better while playing tic tac toe or dominoes.
    but he's a wreck trying to keep up with her standards.
    and he doesn't know what to do when he's scared they might break up or somethin.. (where do i go segment)

    thanks for reading; iloveyou.

    General CommentHe cant keep up with the girl he loves, because they are sky high.

    He feels alone, like the world is racing past him. But he has given up on strategizing to change that because he ends up a wreck.

    General CommentMaybe its just me, but I don't feel like its about a relationship. It just seems like how life changing alot and your just unsure about everything, and all the stablity you had is seeming to crumble.

    General CommentYeah I agree. I love the line "for every apology that was never said". It's a really good way of saying how it is with people who's standards are too high for yourself because they never acknowledge, admit, or blame themselves when they hurt you.
