"Pardon Me" as written by and Aaron/mushok Lewis....
I'm one stop
From a breakdown
Two steps from
Being safe
Just try to
See this through
I'm three steps
From this nightmare
And four steps
From the door
The rest is
Up to you

Pardon me while I
Just turn my back
And walk away
Pardon me if I
Can't listen
To the things
You say
Pardon me if I
Can't fake it
While you still believe
Pardon me

I'm one step
From forgiveness
And two steps
From my grave
We're all just
Passing through
Three steps
From redemption
Four from the
Devil's door
On a path
That leads to you

Pardon me while I
Just turn my back
And walk away
Pardon me if I
Can't listen
To the things
You say
Pardon me if I
Can't fake this
While you still believe
Pardon me

Pardon me while I
Just turn my back
And walk away
Pardon me if I
Can't listen
To the things
You say
Pardon me if I
Can't fake it
While you still believe
Pardon me

I'm two steps
From salvation
But I'm only
Taking one
Pardon me

    My InterpretationSo you've got this guy who is probably past the lust and exileration of early relationships, he has a choice of going on a rutt and leaving the a girl who loves him and would never abandon him. He feels that if he remains his mind will destroy him, he'll go insane, live in a nightmare... If, however, he fulfills his need to look elsewhere he realizes what will become of him. His quest for another is an easier route he eventually decides to take, pack up and leave. The girl will be left grieving, the guy will live to repeat this measure until he realizes the things the girl 'believes' and 'says' are actually true. It's typical for me, I have a great girlfriend who loves me, but i feel trapted and want to explore my options before wedlock. I don't know if i can count on her love alone, if i no longer feel it for her. So I find a new girl and and happy and excited for awhile, then get sick of the same old thing every day, finding every girl I meet a new exileration and temptation.

    My OpinionI experience this song differently in different scenarios of my life.

    I'm in the middle of a breakup where he hurt me, I thought I'd try and hang on for a while and see if things get better, he promised he wouldn't do it again... Things got better... But when it got serious I realised I lost my feelings, and I just couldn't find the strength to trust him again "Can't listen To the things You say"... whether or not he did it again I'm will never know... My point is, I stayed with him "faking" and hoping things will go back to how they were. "I'm two steps" from where I will be after the breakup, and being "redeemed". But its hard to leave cause I love him, so for now Im only "taking one"...

    My OpinionThis song makes me think of when me ex broke up with me for being "too clingy" but was cheating on me before we broke up.
