I know your face, I know your smile and how it plays
Into the minds of those who cling to every word you say
This isn't how I wanted to remember me and you
Your eyes are talking but your lips are standing still
Open your mouth tell me how I'm supposed to feel
My finger pointing's just a warning so I suggest you

Say you're wrong
Let's get this over I
Would like to get some sleep tonight
Let's get this over, I'd like to get some sleep tonight
Let's get this over, I'm done with all your lies

You make it hard for me to leave
So very hard for me to leave

By now the lies you told are weighing on your chest
If I provide the rope I know you'll do the rest
But I will not be an accessory
No I'm not who you think
And I will never be your enemy
So don't insult me

Say you're wrong
This could be easier
If I was over her
So say you're wrong (say you're wrong)

I know she's just a girl
But she's got me standing on the edge
I'm on the edge of the world

My eyes are open for the first time
This place of yours is in my own eye
My eyes are open for the first time
This place of yours is in my own eye

I am not a man who lives a life of soldiers
I am not the kind of man who walks away
I will stand up face to face or toe to toe with anyone, yes anyone

Everything you said about me was the truth but
I just don't think that I can look at you the same
You're like a splinter now I'll never show this hand to anyone, to anyone

Now I know that I was not the man you wanted
You know I loved you and I wanted to make you proud
My intentions were to never give myself to anyone, look what I've done
(Done, just look at what I've done)
My intentions were to never give myself to anyone, look what I've done
(Done, just look at what I've done)
My intentions were to never give myself to anyone, look what I've done

    General Commentthis song seems pretty straight forward.

    basically its about a guy who is having a hard time quitting a girl and shes very deceptive. shes always lying to him and he knows it but its still hard to leave.

    "I know your face, I know your smile and how it plays
    Into the minds of those who cling to every word you say"

    "By now the lies you told are weighing on your chest
    If I provide the rope I know you'll do the rest"

    in this line hes talking about how shes realizing that shes going to lose him and that he's wiseing up to her crap. the second line is the guy saying "i know ur lying and if i bait her i can catch her in her lie"

    "My eyes are open for the first time "
    This is him waking up to her lies

    "I am not a man who lives a life of soldiers
    I am not the kind of man who walks away"
    i think this is him still unsure about whether to leave or not. he doesnt live the life of a soldier (a soldier would stand up and fight) but he isnt the kind of man to walk away either

    "My intentions were to never give myself to anyone, look what I've done"
    i dont necessarily think this line means he is going to stay with the girl but i just think its him realizing how emotionally drained he is and how much he has given to this girl.

    Swear to God when I first heard this song I thought he was saying, "You're just so horny, yes, so horny."

    General Commentand also, when he says "my intentions were to never give myself to anyone, look what i've done", it seems to me more like he's saying he gave it up for her because he loved her, but it's not Christian to have sex before marriage.

    that's what i get from it, since i feel the same way. it kinda sounds really emotional near the end, especially with the sort of yelling...it always seems like he feels a lot of guilt about it. :/

    General CommentWow wow wow I like how people put up their interpretations of this song and many of the others, would any of you by any chance might know a song by them that they sing about how a girl just played a guy and doesnt feel any regret of it?, Yea i know sad right? but that would be pretty cool if someone could tell me.
