I'm angry all the time
No one's fault but mine
Tell me how you fashion kind
When you're out of style

And I try hard to answer
All the questions that you've posed
Tell me now how should I care
When I feel so alone
And so unloved

The pressure is rising
I mean it, it's binding
I've been compromising for you

When you come home really late at night
Ripe to pick a fight
I know just the kind you'd like
So come on and bite

And I try hard to answer
All the punches that you throw
Tell me now how should I fair
When I feel so unloved and so alone

The pressure is rising
I mean it, it's binding
I've been compromising for you

The pressure is rising
I've been compromising for you
I'm waiting at the bus stop in the morning
And it's pouring

Oh, I am waiting at the bust stop for you
Staring at walls with closed doors
The key that won't work
Sure helps the time pass by
Saying i'm wrong when i'm wrong
Knowing it's the right thing
Sure helps the thoughts in my mind

The pressure is rising
I mean it, it's binding
I've been compromising for you
You, you

I am waiting at the bus stop
In the morning
And it's boring

I am waiting at the bus stop for you

    General CommentSo I've been trying to figure out this line for a while now and today it came to me:
    Tell me how you fashion kind
    When you're out of style

    I think what it's saying is like...when you are out of optimism/kindness/whatever how do you pretend you still have some left? How can one still be kind when they are on the verge of going insane or getting agnry, etc.

    General CommentI recently went to a COT show and Genevieve (singer) said that this song is about compromising with people or things to do what you love.

    My Interpretationi thought the song was about the tension when love is burning out.
    You try really hard to not let it die but how can you if deep down you know the other person doesn't want you to. It gets boring trying to not annoy someone and i think thats what shes talking about when shes so alone and unloved.
    Because being in a relationship for so long can really destroy your sociability with everyone else. And when the person your with is just there, but the love is dying out, they want to be left alone. its tough and her passion in the song and video really shows it.
