You are driving me into panic
You can't break me out of my habits
I never will be, I hate that you breathe
So leave me alone I may have it

You never will feel it my way
I'm trading the light from your day
Your pushing and pushing, I'm pulling you down

Baby, spare yourself (but I'm in love with you)
I won't take your help (but I will see it through)
I am too far gone for you to bring me back
So baby, spare yourself

You are driving me into panic
I know that you can't understand it
...
So leave me alone I may have it

You never will feel it my way
I'm trading the light from your day
Your pushing, your pushing, I'm pulling you down

Baby, spare yourself (but in love with you)
I won't take your help (but I will see it through)
I am too far gone for you to bring me back
So baby, spare yourself

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Baby, spare yourself from all my trouble, but
I won't take your help, I'm not the girl I was
I am too far gone for you to bring me back
So baby, spare yourself

    General CommentWhile I appreciate that someone added the lyrics of this song to the board, I have a few lyric corrections from elyrics.net and also from what I heard in the song.

    You are driving me into manic
    You can’t break me out of my habits
    I never will be you, I hate that you’re breathing
    So leave me alone, I’m an addict

    You never will see it my way
    I’m draining the light from your day
    You’re pushing, you’re pushing, I’m pulling you down

    The chorus is correct but then I also have lyric corrections for the second verse.

    You are driving me into panic
    I know that you can’t understand it
    I’m constantly sinking, I’m no longer thinking
    So leave me alone when I’m frantic

    You never will feel it my way
    I’m draining the light from your day
    You’re pushing, you’re pushing, I’m pulling you down

    That's it. Now the song makes more sense. It's one of my favorites from them too. Why hasn't it received any comments until now?

    General CommentNot to state the possibly obvious but it could be about a mental disorder? Bipolar or Borderline maybe? It's kind of a "I hate you, don't leave me" thing, in my opinion. Generally I feel like there's a lot of conflicting feelings in this song. The narrator is saying that she loves (is IN love) with the person but at the same time, she hates them. It's a mix of wanting to be left alone and wanting to purposely drag this person down with them. Also, mania is literally over enthusiasm/excitement, to an unhealthy degree. So this person may make her so happy and so depressed at the same time. Anyone who has a mental illness will know where I'm coming from with saying that the narrator seems to be giving up on herself and telling the other person "Get out while you still can"

    In a nutshell: You make so happy and so sad, you need to leave me because I'm beyond saving, I'm too fucked up. If you don't leave, I'll just drag you down with me.

    General CommentI personally think on my own level I can relate to it because I personally think its these confusing feelings for someone else! Basically I can relate and see the song that way because I have confusing feelings over a boy who I am crazy about and I treat him like shit at the first sign of trouble! And its saying she's too messed up for the guy! (Thats how I feel about the guy I'm like) and he drives her into panic!

    However it could also be about bipolar disorder as well!
