Well I always get my hopes up a palm's length too high.
With every step I get closer, I'm still stuck one step behind.
Yeah, but we're just too good at never getting our timing right.
So for right now I'll have to keep putting my loving on standby...

'cause as much as you lead, you know that I'll follow.
If today you come running, I know that tomorrow,
you could walk away from me in a second flat,
but if I ever left you I'd always come back.
'Cause I'm that kind of woman and you're that kind of man.

It's a long lonesome circle of us coming and staying
and going our opposite ways.
At least the quiet nights are easier than these sunny empty days.
'Cause at least when I'm sleeping I can dream of you keeping me safe,
or of a Someday so far that when I asked you you'd finally stay.

'Cause as much as you lead, you know that I'll follow.
If today you come running, I know that tomorrow,
you could walk away from me in a second flat,
but if I ever left you, I'd always come back.
'Cause I'm that kind of woman and you're that kind of man.

    General CommentI think the meaning is very clear, she's so caught up in him she would go wherever he went knowing that at the end of the day he is not going to stay. She is willing to wait around for the time to be right but she knows deep down that they are just two different kinds of people and the time will probably never be right but she will keep waiting. It reminds me of Corner Of Your Heart by Ingrid Michaelson as well as Maybe by Kelly Clarkson. There is always one guy that you are willing to go back to or wait around for no matter how many times he leaves you alone.

    General CommentBasically, she would do anything for this boy and gets her hopes up from little thing he does for her to believe that he still loves her. And she waits from him and will follow him, even though he would leave and stay. She said if she ever left, she would come back. Just because.
