Everyone's around, no words are coming out.
And I can't find my breathe, can we just say the rest with no sound.
And I know this isn't enough, I still don't measure up.
And I'm not prepared, sorry is never there when you need it.
And I do want you know I hold you up above everyone.
And I do want you know I think you'd be good to me
And I'd be so good to you.
I would.

Thought I saw a sign, somewhere between the lines.
Maybe it's me, maybe I only see, what I want.
But I still have your letter, to stock up between.?
Someone I just invented, and who I am really am.?
?

And I do want you know I hold you up above everyone.
And I do want you know I think you'd be good to me
And I'd be so good to you.
Woahh
You bring me higher.
Yeah.
I would.

And I do want you know I hold you up above everyone.
And I do want you know I think you'd be good to me
And I'd be so good to you.
I'd be good to you,
I'd be good to you,
I'd be good to you...

    General CommentI think that this is Kate Voegele's verse:

    Thought I saw a sign, somewhere between the lines.
    Maybe it's me, maybe I only see, what I want.
    But I still have your letter, just got caught between
    someone I just invented, who I really am,
    and who I've become.

    General CommentEveryones around
    No words are coming now
    And I can't find my breath, can we just say the rest with no sound?
    And none of this is enough
    I still don't measure up
    And I'm not prepared, sorry is never there when you need it
    And now I do, want you to know I hold you up above everyone
    And I do, want you to know I think you'd be good to me and I'd be so good to you

    (Ahhh, ohhh)

    I thought I saw the sign'
    Somehwere bewteen the lines
    Or maybe it's me, maybe I only see what I want

    Well I still have your letter
    Just got caught between someone I just invented
    Or am I really into you
    Or because

    And now I do want you to know I hold you up above everyone
    And I do want you to know I think you'd be good to me, and I'd be so good to you

    (Woah oh woah oh oh woah oh oh oh oh oh woah oh oh oh etc.)

    Yeaahhhh, yeahhh

    Ahhhhh, ahhhh, ohhhh.

    And I do want you to know I hold you up above everyone
    And I do
    Want you to know I think you'd be good to me
    And I'd be so good to you
    I'd be good to you
    I'd be good to you
    I'd be good to you
    I'd be so good to you
    I'd be good to you
    I'd be good to you
    I'd be good to you
    I'd be so good to you

    General CommentLOL
    it's called "good to you" not "good for you"

    "But I still have your letter, to stock up between.?" is "and I still have your letter , just got caught in between" and after "Someone I just invented, and who I am really am" it goes "and who i've become"

    and it's "i can't be without" not "You bring me higher."

    i think this is about a couple in a relationship and they are saying to each other how they'd be so good for each other and they would make everything right. but then again, josh probably wrote this not intending it to be a duet, so it might not be about a relationship, just one person. =)

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs on the masterpiece theatre album. What really bugs me though is that the masterpiece album is not on itunes.

    My InterpretationI think this song about someone who is in love with another person, yet their love is not returned or, at least, that's what they think.

    "I know this isn't enough, I still don't measure up".

    (S)he has someone better than they think they could ever be... The person who is in love has quiet a few issues, and sees the person they love to be close to perfect and absolutely amazing...
    They want to be with the person they love, but, they don't think they deserve them. They're scared to hurt them, and also know at the same time they'd be "Good to" that person.

    They think the person they love would be good to them, too.. But, since they think that love would never happen, they put it to the back of their mind as a pipe dream..

    Then..
    "I thought I saw the sign'
    Somewhere between the lines
    Or maybe it's me, maybe I only see what I want"

    They thought at one point the person who they love loved them back, but then, felt as if they never cared; so they want the person to know that they love them more than anything before leaving and trying to block that pain out of their life..

    I don't know if any of that made any sense at allll.. >_>;;
    But, that's what I get from this song(:

    General CommentKind of irrelevant to song meanings, but this song was suggested to me by a guy I am totally head over heals for, who is coincidentally absolutely in love with his girlfriend. It makes me sob whenever I hear it, to say the least.
