woe is me
faithless you and selfish me
i will leave a key for you outside my doorway

woe is me
one if by the land, or two by sea
so won't you leave, for me, a light outside your doorway

on a ladder from there to here i'll climb
all this clatter between my ears i find
does it matter if i cant clear my mind?
There's a right and a wrong time

Woe is me
Sentimental you and faithful me
And i will be the one to gaze on you discreetly

Slow your speed
Turn yourself around and follow me
Cause i will be the one who preys upon you sweetly

on a ladder from there to here i'll climb
all this clatter between my ears i find
does it matter if i can't clear my mind?
There's a right and a wrong time

on a ladder from there to here i'll climb
all this clatter between my ears i find
does it matter if i can't clear my mind?
There's a right and a wrong time

    General Commentkay so, he really likes this girl and he's telling her that she should give him a sign that she likes him in return.

    My InterpretationWhy is this guy not big yet...??

    anyway.. nicoleyyy222 sums it up.

    I'll add one thing: The girls is faithless and sentimental ...killer combo really. She is practical yet sensitive to the ebb and flow of the world. A modern hippy.

    I am guessing and suggestion this girl doesnt know what she wants, but she does know that she likes this guy..who ever he might be to her..she doesnt know yet..

    And the guy...is trying to figure this girl..and all the clatter in his brain is making hem do unconventional things... girl got him in a tizzy. effing girls and their prowess... ;)

    head down friend yet keep your chin up... (?) paradoxical=women duh right.
