for the longest time I thought I'd lost the best of me
I'll be damned if i quit now and that's for sure
all I ever wanted was for you to look at me
and know I'm all yours
like the penguins need their wings for deep cold water dives
like the earth needs the moon to keep it on course
when you touch me I know there is purpose in my life
just know I'm all yours

I'm a mess, I confess, that I'm nothing without you
and there's nothing I could do to prove to you I'm being honest
now I've seen everything; yes, I've known it all along
I was so lost, but I'm back and I finally know now where my heart belongs

I've been wondering if you could ever realize
that we're growing up so fast, and it's insane
my dear, our hearts have gotten good at pumping cheap new lust into our young veins

suddenly I understand everything I couldn't comprehend

I'm a mess, I confess, that I'm nothing without you
and there's nothing I could do to prove to you I'm being honest
now I've seen everything; yes, I've known it all along
I was so lost, but I'm back and I finally know now where my heart belongs

all this time I've spent without you by my side, I dreamt about you
saw you through the windows in my mind
carved a home for you deep down inside my chest
and I never want to lose such a big part of me again
...lose such a big part of me again

I'm a mess, I confess, that I'm nothing without you
and there's nothing I could do to prove to you I'm being honest
now I've seen everything; yes, I've known it all along
I was so lost, but I'm back and I finally know now where my heart belongs

    General Commentit's about being apart from someone. being a mess without them, feeling that you need them to complete you..maybe being with that person does complete you.

    "im a mess, i'm a confess, i'm nothing without you..."
    pretty much says it all..

    General CommentIt's about them breaking up with a girl when they were younger, and then growing up realized how great things were between them. Then he starts to understand how much he misses her and loves her.
