We've become nothing at all
Lead through the back of our spines
And as our heads hit the floor
We were dead 17 times
And every minute regret
That sank it's teeth in my mind
Says all that needs to be said
And said it 17 times

Oh oh oh we never did let it come to this
So don't give up me yet

I still can't forget
And while I'm still late
Some might say, some might say
I'll be your biggest regret
The stay was never inept
Oh lay ho, oh lay ho
So don't give up on me yet

And everything that I said
Was just a slip of the tongue
To reinforce when I meant
That cliché "you're number one"
Through it all, so far away
And said it 17 times

So don't give up on me yet

I still can't forget
And while I'm still late
Some might say, some might say
I'll be your biggest regret
The stay was never inept
Oh lay oh, oh lay ho
So don't give up on me yet

So don't give up on me yet

I still can't forget
And while I'm still late
Some might say, some might say
I'll be your biggest regret
The stay was never inept
Oh lay ho, oh lay oh
So don't give up on me
So don't give up on me yet

Oh lay ho, oh lay ho
Oh lay ho, oh lay ho
Oh lay ho, oh lay ho
Oh lay ho, oh lay ho
Oh lay ho, oh lay ho
Oh lay ho, oh lay ho
Oh lay ho, oh lay ho
Oh lay ho, oh lay ho

(We've become nothing at all
Lead through the back of our spines
And as our heads hit the floor
We were dead 17 times
And every minute regret
That sank it's teeth in my mind
Said all that needs to be said
And said it 17 times)

    General Commenti think that they were once in a relationship (17 times??)

    when they start to fail and start to break up he says that if they do that he will be her biggest regret.
    he doesnt want to breakup and he tries to do everything he can to keep them together

    he keeps saying 'dont give up on me'
    meaning he wants to relationship to work, he loves this chick and believes that they were ment to be.

    ithink that 17 means that he's argued wit her to stay 17 times

    "We were dead 17 times"
    there not acutally dieing physically, but mentally

    feel free to judge

    p.s u gottta love shauns gutiar solo :)

    General CommentI thinks its about a failing relationship, like alanaellington said. I think they fight and now they're reaching the end and Shauns saying "don't give up on me yet", we still can fix it
    check these lyrics:

    "We've become nothing at all"
    They're pretty much nothing in the relationship

    "And as our heads hit the floor,
    we were dead 17 times
    and every minute regret
    that sank its teeth in my mind
    said all that needs to be said
    and said it 17 times"
    They fight and argue and he regrets it

    "We never did let it come to this"
    They fought, but they never came to breaking point until now

    "So dont give up on me yet"
    He wants a second chance

    "Some might say, some might say
    I'll be your biggest regret"
    People tell her that he's not worth it and she'll regret dating him

    "And everything that I said
    Was just a slip of the tongue
    To reinforce when I meant
    That cliché "you're number one""
    When he said mean things to her he didnt mean it. he still loves her
