"Something" as written by Willie Mitchell and Al L. Green....
So now you're running
It's hard to see clearly
When I make you angry
You're stuck in the past

And now you're screaming
So can you forgive me?
I've treated you badly
But I am still here

Sometimes I wonder
Why I'm still waiting
Sometimes I'm shaking
That's how you make me
Sometimes I question
Why I am still here
Sometimes I think I am going crazy

Can you help me understand?
And now you wish that you meant something
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
And now you wish that you met someone
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
(someone) (something to somebody else)

You look at me through clouded eyes
I know you see through my lies
See the sky, see the stars
All of this could be ours
Out of sight, out of mind
We've been through this a thousand times
Turn your back and then you make me feel so crazy
Can you help me understand

Can you help me understand?
And now you wish that you meant something
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
And now you wish that you met someone
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
(someone) (something to somebody else)

You know I would wait forever
Yes, I would wait (I would wait)

You know I would wait forever
Yes, I would wait

Can you help me understand?
And now you wish that you meant something
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
And now you wish that you met someone
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
(someone) (something to somebody else)

And I'm the one that should mean something
But still you wish that you meant something to somebody else
Something to somebody else, something to somebody else

    General CommentI agree with T Y R A N T. I would rather have them without Ronnie than not have them at all.

    I think maybe it's about being in a relationship, and knowing it's screwed up, and you both want it to work out, and you want each other, but you want something more than the screwed up thing you have so badly that you wish you weren't involved with this person, and you want someone better, but still wanting the person you're with and not understanding why you can't just figure it all out when you so badly want to.

    I can't type it the way I think it, but that's about as best as I can say it. I'm probably way off the mark, but either way, this is the best song from This War is Ours in my opinion.

    General Commenti also took some info from of the video .i think its about a girl cheating on her boyfriend with his friends he doesnt know that but he has made her mad in some way and he begs for her forgivness and some other dude gets upset seeing him with her and challendes him to a race so his friends come and see him with her and knows what she was doing so after he knows aswell and she forgives him and tries to make up when he wins but he denys her because now he hates her

    General CommentI believe this song is about a relation ship where both messed up, but the guy messed up more. He doesn't know whether or not that the girl will forgive him, she goes back sometimes but in the end she leasves because she can't handle it.

    The guy wants the clear answer from the girl "Will you forgive me" but she is indecisive that it seems like now she is playing with the guys mind. The guy messed up but now he realizes why he likes this particular girl but wishes that he never hurt her and that she had found someone that is better than him.

    Thats what I got

    General Commentit's a toxic relationship with fouls on both sides.
    but the guy doesn't know why he's trying anymore.
    made up his mind, it's time to leave.

    love the vocals when he sings "can you help me understand" btw.
