"Maybe Maybe" as written by and Nico Stai....
Cutting belts and magazines
And things you'll never need
The mirrors in you room at night
And skies that never fold
You're sorry that it matters more
But who would ever tell
I know you need to stay above
But I swore
I swore
I swore

It's all over your eyes
There's nothing you can do
I'm coming out my skin tonight
So tell me if you're ready or no
I'm tired of living out a lie
Sitting here watching things flying by me
And maybe maybe
You're gonna save me
Maybe maybe
But I don't know
I don't think so

Last night I woke up cold
And I walked right out into the dark
And eight hundred reasons why kept flying into my eyes
Wish I could say that I killed 'em dead
But they're just much bigger than I

It's all over your eyes
There's nothing you can do
I'm coming out my skin tonight
So tell me if you're ready or no
I'm tired of living out a lie
Sitting here watching things flying by me
And maybe maybe
You're gonna save me
Maybe maybe
But I don't know
I don't think so

It's half my life
It's half my life

    General CommentGreat song beautifully sung
    I've read over it many times and what i think it means is that someone is keeping a secret to protect another person and he is tired of living the lie but he swore he would do it and he's wishing the person he's keeping the secret from will save him, will fess up i guess.
    Also, this song was on an episode of the show 'Numb3rs' which was conveys a similiar message.

    General CommentI used to cry to this song because I could relate to it. Especially where he says:

    'and 800 reasons why kept flying into my eyes
    wish I could say that i killed 'em dead
    but they're just much bigger than I '

    In my opinion, the song is about a relationship ending..and out of the 2 parties, you're the only one trying to make things work out..it's like you're purposefully blinding yourself so that you don't see the obvious and can still stay with the other person..but unfortunately, the latter keeps on giving you reasons to leave, to hate him/her, and to not love him/her..

    And even though you can see clearly that he/she's not going to love you back, you want to stick around him/her for as long as you can..until you can't live this lie anymore..

    A song written about hoping in vain. A painfully beautiful one.
