I'll never catch a shooting star
or call ya out on who ya really are
i know im not the one you wanna win
it's a losin game
so i'm losin it

and i'm surprised we got this far
with that barricade but i want more
i would be a fool to let you let me quit

(CHORUS)
and maybe you should just say somethin
you havent rehearsed-but that leaves nothin
along with me-you've neglected the urge to be real
real with me,
if i'd ask for one thing
just say i love you
but i know you wont blink
truth wont pass your lips-i know
stop pretending

i'm not susprised i let you in this far so it's
it's safe to say that i still adore you
i'm not the one who started this
and i wont back down
so keep pushin it
and on the day that you came undone
that day was the last day that i felt home
so i would be a fool to let you let me quit

(CHORUS REPEAT)

And it was never about what you were not
but i dont know how much longer i can hold on
hooooold onnnn

(CHORUS REPEAT)

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship that's experiencing some tension because the guy doesn't want to open up to his girlfriend and be himself. She wants him to be honest about his feelings, but he won't let up. (examples: "if i'd ask for one thing, just say i love you, but i know you wont blink, truth wont pass your lips-i know. stop pretending" and "i'm surprised we got this far with that barricade but i want more") She's obviously frustrated by this and feels like he's almost trying to push her away, but at the same time she loves him enough to not give up on him so easily. By the end of the song, she's not sure if it's worth it to hold on any longer to the relationship.

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who is still in love with her ex that is dating someone else but they both still have feelings for her and she knows it.
    "and i'm surprised we got this far
    with that barricade but i want more
    i would be a fool to let you let me quit"
    The barricade being the new girlfriend and she knows he wants her to stop trying because it would be easier but she doesn't quit because they still love each other and she doesn't want to let that go
    By the end, she's tired of waiting though and is thinking about moving on
