If dreams come true then you and I would make a two
And if I had one more I'd dream that I stayed on your floor
And while my parents were alive
They'd say Rebecca knows the time to play the next card to your chest

You thought about me and you said go
I thought about that and I said no
You couldn't understand why a girl like me thinks the way I do
But I can't stand a boy who thinks things through like you
Lets go back to the beginning of the nights that I've been regretting
Lets go back to the beginning of the nights I've been regretting

Now with you I always thought we lived behind a front door
Right now you don't think that you can live any more
And I'll call and call and call and call and call and call and call
Anyone on the phone, so tonight I'm not alone
Lets go back to the beginning of the nights that I've been regretting
Lets go back to the beginning of the nights that I've been regretting

And you say baby a lot in your song
It takes all my courage not to sing along
And now my beating heart belongs to my drum

I met a boy who grew up in the mountains
He really loved God and got me thinking about things
Like appreciating everyone that I can call a friend
Seeing life as a group of tests to see through to the end
But I'm a quitter, I don't think he knew
That I'm still thinking about you
I'm a quitter and I'm ashamed
He said he'd come back for my brain

And you say baby a lot in your songs
It takes all my courage not to sing along
And now my beating heart belongs to my drum

I just wanted to see that new Tim Burton movie
Or hang around with Laura, Jane and Suzy
And I definitely want to be a rapper
But I'm just a northern girl from where nothing really happens

And the bones inside my shins are crumbling
The bones inside my shins are crumbling
The bones inside my shins are crumbling
The bones inside my shins are crumbling
The bones inside my shins are crumbling
It's from all the crunking I've been doing

    Song MeaningThis song is about that person in the relationship who would like something more out of it.

    They feel as if they aren't being treated as well as they are treating the other person and it leads to the idea of wanting to start over from scratch and hoping the same mistakes won't be made a second time. "Lets go back to the beginning of the nights that I've been regretting"

    Unfortunately, he is that person who knows what to say and when to say it and she is having trouble because she continues to fall those lines.

    It takes all my courage not to sing along"

    General CommentActually it's about Rebecca's attempt to move on after an upsetting break up. She did an interview about it and talked about how she was trying to move past him but kept returning to the same emotions, the same memories. This is my favourite song, just beautiful.
