throw me in the submarine
and push it into the sea
let it sink down, down, down

i remember everything
racing you across the bridge
i was rolling, i was swimming, i was falling
and then you kissed me, it was crazy

but that was yesterday
that was not today
but that was yesterday
that was not today

i did not want to let you go
but i knew i had to

i did not want to let you go
but i knew i had to

and i remember everything
i even loved your family
all i've ever given you was love
(and your heart has two sides?)
and i can't stick around to lie anymore

i'm laughing that i'm crying
i'm laughing that i'm crying as i sink
down, down, down

i did not want to let you go
but i knew i had to

i did not want to let you go
but i knew i had to

and i'll always miss you

i did not want to let you go
but i knew i had to

i did not want to let you go
but i knew i had to

i did not want to let you go
but i knew i had to

    My InterpretationGreat song.

    One of the feelings I get is that it's about a relationship that started off as something really exciting but broke down. Another is that it never actually got to the relationship stage and the girl was leading him on a bit. I tilt towards my first impression though, especially as he mentions loving the family.
