You put yourself in my hands,
And I threw you out like a sweet I couldnt stand.
Im stirless inside;
Blame it on these tired eyes.

And I was drinking too much,
I made a pass and was floored by a single punch
You screamed at me Why?,
And I blamed it on these tired eyes.

If youd surrender the past,
Then Ill concede another star can shine brighter.
Can you surrender the past?
Abandon for me?

Man I think were dying
To leave this town,
But every time we both crash-land on the concrete.
When its the road we lost,
In love, hate and tears...

A bigger man would stand his ground
Im begging you to fuck me now on the backseat
If we lay these tracks,
with love, hate and tears...

In tired eyes...
In tired eyes...

Its been a lifetime with you,
Im petrified of the thought of your baby blues.
You light up my sky,
And blame it on these tired eyes.

If youd surrender the past,
Then Ill concede another star can shine brighter.
Can you surrender the past?
Abandon for me?

Man I think were dying
To leave this town,
But every time we both crash-land on the concrete.
When its the road we lost,
In love, hate and tears...

A bigger man would stand his ground,
Im begging you to fuck me now on the backseat.
If we lay these tracks,
with love, hate and tears...

In tired eyes...
In tired eyes...
In tired eyes...
In tired eyes...

You say you need the excitement of chasing,
But youre the one who got my pulse racing.
You say you need the excitement of chasing...

    My InterpretationMy interpretation of this song is about a man and woman. The girl loves the boy, But the boy isn't looking for a relationship, At least not at the time when the damage had been done. In the lines " You put yourself in my hands. I threw you out like a sweet I couldn't stand". It seems that she likes him but he doesn't like her.

    "Man I think were dying
    To leave this town,
    But every time we both crash-land on the concrete.
    When its the road we lose,
    In love, hate and tears...

    A bigger man would stand his ground
    Im begging you to fuck me now on the backseat
    If we lay these tracks,
    In love, hate and tears..."

    It starts to change on his behalf. He is thinking about what he has done to the girl's feelings, And he seems to be feeling guilty of what took place in the backseat. "Dying to leave this town", They both want to get away from one another, But can't seem to because of love, tears, And all other emotions between them. The guy seemed to just want to have a one night stand while the other person is suffering because she feels more for him. Hence, Why he uses the F word instead of having the moment be a romantic feel to go with the actual music. Instead of "Making love" in the backseat, He uses the word used for all nonsense purposes in regards to using one during that moment.

    That's my interpretation. Above all, Beautiful musical arrangement.
