"Go First" as written by and Damien Jurado....
Are you all right?
You're making me nervous with how much you leave me here.
Is it a sign?
I don't feel like ever getting well

Tell me the lie, you're taking your time over and over
Tell me the lie, you're taking your time over and over

My closest friends live on the side of where you now divide.
Is it a sign?
I don't feel like ever getting well

Tell me the lie, you're taking your time over and over
Tell me the lie, you're taking your time over and over

You can go first.
You're making me nervous with how much you leave me here.
Is it a sign?
I don't feel we're ever getting well

Tell me the lie, you're taking your time over and over
Tell me the lie, you're taking your time over and over
Tell me the lie, you're taking your time over and over
Tell me the lie, you're taking your time over and over

    General CommentI think it's about some bad situation happened in relationship, she thinks he screwed up something and she is giving him now totally cold shoulder. He's arguing all this. He questions about 'the lie'(asserting) like he doesn't feel guilty of nothing. In the whole context he's begging forgiveness someway, he calls her back, he believes in dialogue, and he wants her back at his side.

    My InterpretationHe wants to know if she is going to be alright
    Ultimately if (they) are going to be alright
    He’s afraid by her silence and fears she will leave him
    He is so upset at the prospect of her leaving, he knows it will happen
    And he’s wallowing in his misery
    He wants her to say she loves him, even if it’s not true
    Their friends have sided with her
    He thinks maybe he is in the wrong
    He is so distraught and doesn’t even want to attempt to function without her
    He wants her to say she loves him, even if it’s not true
    They’re going to break up
    He wants her to start the discussion
    He’s nervous she’s going to say what he thinks she is
    He is so upset about it, he knows it will happen and he’s in agony at that prospect
    He wants her to say she loves him, but he knows she won’t
