I'll always treasure the naivety
Of the past we've shared
Our bodies grew much faster than our minds
But together we got good at stopping time

My teen angst drove me to hurt myself
And I made you watch
All the pain I must have caused
But by staying around you saved my life (saved my life)

We were never meant to be lovers
Just fellow laid bloomers who blossomed apart, who blossomed apart

Watching my parents made me look
For something destructive, and there you were
With all the characteristics of my mum
Familiarity of home

The geographic gap let to forced adulthood
And your rage exposed
Im glad we left things when we did
I doubt I'd survive another bloody nose (bloody nose)

We were never meant to be lovers
We just mirrored each others self-destructiveness, self-destructiveness

The spotlight burned in the room when we were together
And we played our parts
And I worn an imaginary TV-screen
So you never got to touch my heart (touch my heart)

We were never meant to be lovers
Our egos fed of each other and died overweight, and died overweight

I thought I had seen it all
When you first walked in, but you shut me up
And challenged every wrong perception I've had of myself
And you haven't ever stopped

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a friendship that, like she mentions,will always be treasured (or the innocence and unknowingness they shared of life). They weren't meant to be lovers because their egos (,pride) and insecurities got in the way, but their friendships helped each other out along the way.

    General Commentthe lyrics are so butchered.

    I'll always treasure the naivety of the past we've shared.
    Our bodies grew much faster than our minds, but together we got good at stopping time.
    My teen angst drove me to hurt myself and I made you watch
    oh, the pain I must have caused.
    But by staying around you saved my life. (Saved my life)

    We were never meant to be lovers
    Just fellow late bloomers who blossomed apart,
    who blossomed apart

    Watching my parents made me look for something destructive, and there you were
    with all the characteristics of my mum, familiarity of home.
    The geographic gap led to force adulthood and your rage exposed.
    I'm glad we left things when we did, I doubt I'd survive another bloody war.

    We were never meant to be lovers
    We just mirrored each others self-destructiveness,
    self-destructiveness

    The spotlight burned in the room when we were together, and we played our parts
    and I wore an imaginary TV-screen so you never got to touch my heart. (touch my heart)

    We were never meant to be lovers
    Our egos fed off each other and died overweight,
    and died overweight

    I thought I'd seen it all when you first walked in, but you shut me up
    and challenged every wrong perception I've had of myself and you haven't ever stopped.




    anyway, amazingly good song.

    General CommentMnemonicrhyme's lyrics are right, but, I think she says:

    I'm glad we left things when we did, I doubt I'd survive another bloody nose.

    And. . .

    We were never meant to be lovers
    Our egos fed off each other and I'd over wait.
    I'd over wait.
