Knowing us like we do
And I wish we weren't all through
Knowing us like we do
Why do I feel like I shouldn't call you

Things just aren't the same
Wish that I could just change my name again
And try to run away and though you're far
We still just sit under the same old stars

Knowing us like we do
I wish that we were through
Knowing us like we do
Why do I feel like I can't call you

Was it just the space
That we were never in the same place
And oh, I know I lost you in my head
There's no more waking next to you in my bed
As the pillow turns to stone instead

Knowing us like we do
And I wish we weren't all through
Knowing us like we do
Why do I feel I shoundn't call
Why do I feel like I shoundn't call you
Call you now

    General CommentLovely track. I think it's about a relationship that was pulled apart due to distance. His head is telling him that long distance isn't possible, but his heart still wants to try and make something work but he doesn't think she will feel the same and is scared of calling her and letting her know he still thinks about her out of fear she doesn't feel the same.

    It's a position that I am currently in and it's horrible.

    General Commentthe whole album "complete me" is about his ex girlfriend olivia, who of course the song is named after, and it's just about the eighteen months of his life and who big a part of it their relationship was.

    General CommentI agree with liv08, I think its based on long distance. I think he cant forget her, but time has passed now making it hard to call her, though he thinks of her everyday, he feels he lost his chance to say what she really meant to him..
