I got the call from across the sea
And marked the end of summer
But I'm making peace while I sleep
In this bed of sweat with a heavy head
Stay right here

[Chorus]
I get lost in the seconds as the minutes pass by
And you still won't believe me, but they're the days I felt alive
Two more years left of waiting before I let this one go
But I'm stuck on the seconds and the time it takes to grow

I made my way down the coast
I made it home for autumn
But as the seasons change I can pry my eyes
From the two black hands staring back at me
Stay right here

[Chorus]

If I said I was sorry would you believe in me
If I did what I promised would you still love me
If I said I was changing would you give me a chance
Got me lost in the seconds and the time it takes to grow

[Chorus]

    General Commentit's about someone who did something wrong to his lover and decided to 'fade away' and let the memories die and basically, give up, even though if he just fight a little bit, they would be perfect for each other.
    she wouldn't believe him anyways because i think she had enough of him, because she gave him thousands of 'second chance' and she wants him to fully change. even if he changed, part of her will always never believe him.

    'And you still won't believe me, but they're the days I felt alive'
    so they had love-hate relationship, and they burn each other because they were so much in love.
    'Two more years left of waiting before I let this one go'
    this might mean that the girl waited until he change, but he never did and she just give up.
    or.
    they might not live in the same town/country and they try to move on.

    this song is kinda like me and my boyfriend. we had on & off relationship and also love-hate.

    General CommentI really like this and all of "The Way I Fell In"

    And the second verse is:

    I made my way down the coast
    I made it home for autumn
    But as the seasons change I can pry my eyes
    From the two black hands staring back at me
    Stay right here

    General Comment"I can't pry my eyes from the two black hands staring back at me"
    What they meant is they can't stop looking at the clock. 'Two black hands' refers to the clock's arrow, one for minutes indicator and one for hours indicator.
