now that the weekend's upon us i've got to be honest so how do you want it?
my words in a sonnet
i've been avoiding you lately i don't want you to hate me, i know i am supposed to but i don't think i can trust you
so please don't lead me to believe we never had a chance
say aloud now that i'm sleep the secrets your keeping
try as hard as i may try, your always bored by friday night
happiness was not very likely, your not very likely
every once in awhile i need a shot of your smile
i just need to believe we gave this an honest chance
all i want is to believe we gave it all we had
another weekend is over of counting clovers
with grass stains on my knees i need to find one with four leafs
you know i'm not superstitious, but it helps me get through this
now its time to be honest, but its such a long list
i just need to believe we gave this an honest chance
all i want is to believe we gave it all we had

    General Commentfirst off-- gorgous song. i was loosing hope in good music untill i heard this song for the first time today. One of the few with a great melody as well as amazing lyrics.

    i think this song is about a guy who broke up with his girl friend. they were probably in love, dated for a really long time, and did everything they could to make the relationship work, but in the end decided it just wasn't right, so he tried to end it on good terms. the guy is second guessing his decision to break up with her though; he wanted to make sure they they truely put everything they could into the relationship and it still wouldn't work, he didn't want to make a mistake and lose the person that maybe he was meant for--

    "i just need to believe we gave this an honest chance
    all i want is to believe we gave it all we had"

    he's confused because he still loves her, but not in the way that he used to. he knows they shouldn't really be seeing eachother because they're broken up("i've been avoiding you lately, i don't want you to hate me") but he feels like he can't really go too long without seeing her because she's such an integral part of his life("every once in awhile i need a shot of your smile")


    i know that was a little jumbled lol but you get the idea. again, touching song.
