William
Just take your toys from me
I'm not so interested
In playing with you

A pessimist
That's all they think of you
I'm not ashamed of you
But that's what they see

And fifty cents
To buy a popsicle
A moment we could share
But you won't do that

William
Just take your attitude
I'm not in love with you
Anymore

Don't pretend
Tomorrow will be
Better for you
William

William

William
I'm sure you'll find a way to dissagree
But that's the way it goes for you and me
And that's the way it should be

Hold me down
Before I do something that I'll regret
I get the urge to take my chances when
I know I shouldn't speak

Don't pretend
Tomorrow will be
Better for you
William

William
William
William

William
Just take your time machine
I'm not so interested
In turning around

What's the use
Explaining everything you swear is true
I'm believing less in what you do
Are you misunderstood

A perfect score
A hurricane to blow me out the door
I never meant to be a safe excuse
For all of your pain

Don't pretend
Tomorrow will be
Better for you
William

William
William
William

    Song MeaningBeautiful song. Sadly, it reminds me of my first relationship.

    I think it's about a relationship that isn't working out because the two people aren't compatible with each other. It seems that they used to love each other, but the girl has grown tired of William and wants to end the relationship. He does not seem to understand this and continues to try to reconcile things with the girl. By the end of the song, it seems obvious that she has moved on, but it still has not sunk in for William who remains optimistic that they will be together again someday. In the meantime, he is harboring all of his emotions about the relationship and uses it as his excuse for the pain of his current situation.

    General CommentThis is a brilliant song. Sad, but so amazing...the way it builds, and then just climaxes and falls....

    I agree with kflorence. I've been trying to break into the lyrics for more meaning but they're brilliant. Best song of theirs by far.
