You were getting tired
I was lying beside you
With your head without a pillow
I would have given you mine
But I couldn't let you go
I could tell you we're dreaming
And I know it couldn't be about me
'Cause you don't know me

And I bought a dozen flowers
Eleven were roses
And the other one was a daisy
And I was thinking about it
And giving them to you
But I thought of a way to get closer to you
So I came over and knocked on your door
But you, weren't home 'cause
You don't know how and ooh
And ooh, and ooh, and ohh
And I, and I, and I, am tired

When we walk through the park
And the autumn around us could almost numb our hands
There's something about you I can't seem to see
'Cause I've been waiting around for a moment like this
It's a moment I thought that I'0d never miss
But noticed this, 'cause I don't know you
and ooh, and ooh, and ohh
And I, and I, and I, am tired

And I don't want to say goodnight
'Cause I'm not tired like you
No, I'm not tired like you (x3)

    General CommentI love This Song,
    To Me I Feel As If Stephen Is Showing Himself As Being A Hopeless Romantic.
    He Describes Himself As Being The Best Friend Figure With A Secret Love For The Girl.
    He Keeps Wanting To Tell Her How He Feels But Can't.

    'And I bought a dozen flowers
    Eleven were roses
    And the other one was a daisy
    And I was thinking about it
    And giving them to you
    But I thought of a way to get closer to you
    So I came over and knocked on your door
    But you, weren't home'

    And The Chorus Describes How He's Tired Of Being A Second String,
    Then Towards The End Of The Song I Feel Like He Discovers That He's Not Tired Of His Feelings.
    He Shows That He Wants Her To Be Happy.

    I Have Mixed Thoughts,
    But Yeah.

    My InterpretationI just kinda took it as he likes this girl he's known or a while.
    But she's oblivious to his feelings.
    And after a while, he just gets tired of having to like her and she doesn't realize it.
    And he realizes that they really don't know each other that well.
    And he stops wanting to be more than friends.

    That's just what I got outta it.

    General CommentI think it describes the stages that relationships go through. You feel blessed with the gift of seeing your one true love. You're not sure she's interested but then the moment happens when you realize she likes you too. As you get closer you begin to lose yourself in her but are happy and thrilled about it. But then the differences and the conflicts arise, you realize that you miss your freedom, you fight, someone has to win - it always seems to be her. The relationship is becoming more distant, you miss her and begin to reminisce. Its over, you're sad but you've learned some good lessons about love. Hallelujah stands for "I love you."

    General CommentThis is wrong...
    And the autumn around us could almost numb our hands ( could almost melt our hearts!)
    There's something about you I can't seem to see
    'Cause I've been waiting around for a moment like this
    It's a moment I thought that I'0d never miss (to go home to the girl I thought I would never miss)
    But noticed this, 'cause I don't know you (but now it's this)
