Are you listening to anything I say?
I talk in between when you're looking away
And when I wonder what you're thinking when you stare into space
oh, oh
I tell you turn around take a look at yourself
You're always watching me to see if your head should hang down
woah, woah
Are you with me on anything at all?
No you're not alone
No its not all a dream
You know you have to reach inside
Gotta try to believe
Woah, oh
I wonder why I can
Why I go through it all
I know I love you and I don't want to let it all fall
woah, woah
Try not to save me
Just come home
Please come home
Try not to save me
Try not to care
I'm not the one
Try not to save me
Try not to care
All I ever wanted was to care
Try not to save me
Try not to care

    General Commenti think the title of the song says it all. its about not relying on other people for happiness or help.

    General Commentthis song to me is about a relationship that is having issues. They know they need to end it but they don't want to. The person doesn't want the other to care about them so much so they could just let it go.

    General CommentI agree that this about an ending relationship, however, I feel like "try not to save me" means that the person taking the active action to leave is intending to be noble and stop hurting the person they are leaving. "Try not to save me" indicates the other person's flaws. Other lines indicating that the person leaving is the person who really needs the help are "And when I wonder what you're thinking when you stare into space", "You're always watching me to see if your head should hang down", and "I'm not the one." The narrator of the story knows that their partner needs them to help them and this is an attempt to make their partner realize that.
