"The Ides of March" as written by Shane Told, Neil Boshart, Joshua Bradford, William Hamilton and Paul Koehler....
Tie me up with sheets, and hang me from your tree
I'll stay our here all night, it doesn't even matter
As long as I can see, into your room and feel
Like I'm inside your life, I'll follow you forever

Don't cut me down just yet, I'll make things right again
Don't close your blinds on me, on me...

I will never recover from this
I will never believe in this again
And I can never go back to the way I used to be before this started

The snow won't go away, My nose runs down my face
No one sees me here, It doesn't even matter
And every step I take, I stay in the same place
I can't begin to start again why can't I just be perfect?

I will never recover from this
I will never believe in this again
I can never go back to the way I used to be before this started

I will never recover from this
I will never believe in this again
I can never go back to the way I used to be before this started

You see my ghost and you'll never forget it
My face is as white as the snow that haunts me
Your windows my door and nothing can stop me
Sometimes betrayal can make you happy

Don't cut me down just yet, I'll make things right again
Don't close your blinds on me, on me...

I will never recover from this
I will never believe in this again
I can never go back to the way I used to be before this started

I will never recover from this
I will never believe in this again
I can never go back to the way I used to be before this started

    General CommentSilverstein is awesome!

    As long as I can see, into your room and feel
    Like I'm inside your life, I'll follow you forever

    In literal terms, this song to me means that this boy cannot get over a relationship he had with this girl and now he is stalking her outside her bedroom just so he can feel like he's a part of her life again.

    Don't cut me down just yet, I'll make things right again
    Don't close your blinds on me, on me...

    But in metaphoric terms he doesnt want her to cut him out of her life and look the other way in hopes he can make things right again.

    I will never recover from this
    I will never believe in this again

    It sounds like he was in love and now heartbroken, he won't believe in love again and will never feel the same.

    General CommentWell as the title already implies (Wikipedia quote: "In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the date that Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC.") this song is surely about deception.

    The line: "Sometimes betrayal can make you happy" also suggests that 'he' has been deceived.

    IMO I think he has been cheated on by his grilfriend, but he cannot let go of his feelings for her.
