I'm tired of the eggshells we've been walking on
We've been here for far too long
Remember standing on the pier
Even the ocean couldn't come between us
Now the sound of your words seemed so turned around
Last time I should have said I'm sorry
But all my pride made me keep ignoring
That the deadline is up when the sun goes down
If I could catch the words before they left my mouth, I'd do it
If I could reach right out and turn them all around, I'd do it
But it's out there yeah I said it
And in a way I don't regret it
'Cause I won't sit back and let us slip away
I'm tired of the eggshells we've been walking on
We've been here for far too long
Hey do you know what happened to the good times?
Rolling like the thunder in the night sky
Now we seem so far out of reach
Everyone knows, everyone gets older
And you can't stop running until it's over
'Cause the love we had is always few and far between
We need to take action for what we've done
Not act like there's nothing wrong
Let's start over

    General CommentSuch an awesome song! I personally think that it's about a guy and a girl who have been together for a while and have tried to avoid talking about the important things in their relationship. He recently had an outburst and offended her by saying how he really felt. This song is his way of apologizing for hurting her but still saying "I said it, and in a way I don't regret it." He's sick of ignoring the important issues and "walking on eggshells" instead of saying how they really feel.
