My friend assures me, "It's all or nothing."
But I am not really worried. I am not overly concerned
My friend implores me, "For one time only,
make an exception.". I am not worried
Wrap her up in a package of lies
Send her off to a coconut island
I am not worried. I am not overly concerned

This isn't love
And if you don't want to talk about it
This isn't love
And I'm going to have to live that
I'm sure there's something in a shade of grey
Or something in between
I can always change my name
If that's what you mean

My friend assures me, "It's all or nothing."
But I am not really worried. I am not overly concerned
You try to tell yourself the things you try tell yourself
To make yourself forget
I am not worried
This isn't love
She can't stop shaking and I can't stop touching her and...

When kindness falls like rain
It washes her away and Anna begins to change her mind
These seconds when I'm shaking leave me shuddering for days
She says I'm not ready for this sort of thing

But I'm not gonna break
And I'm not going to worry about it anymore
I'm not gonna bend
And I'm not gonna break
I'm not gonna worry about it anymore
It seems like I should say, "As long as this is love..."
Maybe I should snap her up in a butterfly net
Pin her down on a photograph album
I am not worried
I've done this sort of thing before

Then kindness falls like rain
It washes me away and Anna begins to change my mind
And everytime she sneezes I believe it's love and
Oh lord I'm not ready for this sort of thing

She's talking in her sleep
It's keeping me awake
And Anna begins to toss and turn
And every word is nonsense but I understand and
Oh lord, I'm not ready for this sort of thing

Her kindness bangs a gong
And Anna begins to fade away
It's chasing me away

She disappears and
Oh lord I'm not ready for this sort of thing

    Song Meaningi think the first verse means his friends are telling him that for once go with the girl and dont mess it up etc.
    then the girl is trying but he is saying this isnt love
    but when he says 'im not guna bend... etc'
    hes finally realising it is love
    but maybe its too late
    'anna begins to change her mind'
    then at the end hes lost her?
    maybe?
    its kinda the situation im in atm an its made me relaise not to mess my gf around with feelings
