Oh have some heart and hold it to your chest
We weren't in love, we were too young
We throw our words around as if they were not gold
They are

Oh maybe someday I will be something more
Real with arms and legs so I can walk away and stay away forever and some more

I'll stick around and watch this town fall down to it's knees
You can pray the day that you hope is coming round real soon
I will run and stay away in a place that I don't know well of
You can chose a different song that you will soon love

Oh here are the reasons that hurt me the most
Call off the search I'm coming home
People I want, but not on the hurt
Not without reason, not for a girl

The names will vary, the names they will change
But the game, the game it stays the same.
Oh love, we want the ones that we will grow to hate, to hate

It's just so
oh no, oh no (etc)

Maybe someday I'll deserve something more
A home in which I will turn to grow
I plant the seeds so that we can become something more, something more

I'll stick around and watch this town fall down onto it's knees
You can pray the day that you hope is coming round real soon
I will run and stay away in a place I don't know well of
You can chose a different song that you will soon love

Oh here are the reasons that hurt me the most
Call off the search she's coming home
People I want, but not on the hurt
Not without reason, not for a girl

    Oh here are the reasons that hurt me the most
    Call out the search i'm coming home
    And people lie once but not on the third
    not without reason not for a girl

    General Commentthis song is so meaningful...it is clear what it is about, he thought he loved someone but he realises that what that emotion was was not love at all but love is something more
