You told me that you just needed to hear my voice
And everything will be alright so we talked all night
I told you stupid jokes and you laughed until it ached
When you fell asleep, I stayed up to hear you breathe
We never hung it up, that made us feel too far away
Even if I couldn't touch you, you would still be there with me
I use to walk you home from school and let you wear my favorite sweater
It made me feel important plus it always smelled better when you wore it
Every glance I took became a stare
I was enslaved by the cucumber melon smell in your hair
I thought I lost those kind of feelings for good until today
I thought that sunshine was only the basic by the rain
But she just might be the right light to conquer the darkness
Or maybe I'll be worse then when I started

Love will tear us apart
But there's joy in our division
Not to mention it's the only reason I continue living

I don't know if I'm ready to reveal my true skeletons
Every single word out of her mouth is so intelligent
When she looks back at me, my legs turn into gelatin
I try to speak clearly but my palms are feeling wet again
I don't know if she could ever really love the man I am
If she really knew me would she stay and watch me bleed within
She'll never understand me, she can't pierce my exoskeleton
I'll never get to kiss her cause I'm not a vegetarian

It was the way no one could see my but you
That made me understand I didn't have to worry about the past
All I had to do was look into your eyes to see the truth
When you handed me a paper heart before we went to class
She loved the shitty parts of me, you just put up with the rest
You use to brag to your graffiti friends and say I was the best
Holding my backpack straps so you would never get lost
When you use to come with me to see my favorite Dj's
We would sneak into your room and hope we didn't get caught
At 4 o'clock in the morning, what would your step dad say?
I think I finally found some else as good as you
Or at least she makes me feel the way I use to
I think that I could love again if I could make it through the summer
But love is the bomb that tore my personalities asunder
See, since we called the quits I only failed in the past
She'll make we wanna die if this doesn't last

I don't know if I'm ready to reveal my true skeletons
Every single word out of her mouth is so intelligent
When she looks back at me, my legs turn into gelatin
I try to speak clearly but my palms are feeling wet again
I don't know if she could ever really love the man I am
If she really knew me would she stay and watch me bleed within
She'll never understand me, she can't pierce my exoskeleton
I'll never get to kiss her cause I'm not a vegetarian

    General Commenti'm so glad i posted these lyrics on this site. i can't believe it wasn't on here before.

    anyways i think this song is about a guy who was in love with a girl and they broke up
    or maybe something just went wrong in their relationship where they just couldn't see
    each other anymore. He soon falls for someone else but he just can't forget about his previous love.
    He's reminiscing on the memories they once had and how she took the time to understand him.
    He's afraid to reveal his true self to this "new girl" that he's with because he doesn't want
    what they currently have, to fail like his previous relationship did. He can't handle another heartbreak.
    but that's just my interpretation of the song.
