"Impossible" as written by Stephen Christian Arnold, Christian Edwin Mcalhaney, Joseph Milligan, Deon Rexroat and Nathan Young....
You make my teeth clench
And my hands shake
Do you ever see
what you do to me?
You're wearing me out
Just wearing me out
But I'm wearing you down

You're impossible to love or leave
So impossible to win or please
I'm wearing you out
Just wearing you out
But I'm wearing you down

Take what you want from me
It means nothing now
Take everything from me
It means nothing now
Not so easy to forgive
Harder to forget
Take what you want

I make your lips wet
And your moans quake
Try to think through
What I can do to you
It's wearing me thin
Can I begin
To wear you out?

Take what you want from me
It means nothing now
Take everything from me
It means nothing now
Not so easy to forgive
Harder to forget
Take what you want

I'm impossible
To figure out
So impossible
You had your doubts

Take what you want from me
It means nothing now
Take everything, honey
It means nothing now
Not so easy to forgive
Harder to forget
Take what you want from me
It means nothing now
Take everything, honey
It means nothing now
Not so easy to forgive
Harder to forget
Take what you want from me

Take what you want from me

    General CommentFrom what i get from this song, I think it means plainly about two people who are in relationship, or maybe not even a relationship. mainly to say, they are just fustrated with each other "you're wearing me out, just wearing me out. but i'm wearing you out." and with all this fustration, they are unable to solve their problems, because both are "impossible" to deal with.

    General CommentGreat song that I can't stop playing :) This is what it means to me.
    He did something wrong to her and shes making it impossible to forgive or forget. He's saying to her "take what you want from me it means nothing now" as in he's tried so hard to "Try to think through
    What I can do to you."To make it up to her. Anyhow just my interpretation. Just an overall awesome song!!

    Song MeaningOMG I cannot stop listening to this song is Re-donk-culous! I love this pop rock lyrics cuz they allow anyone to place their own backdrop to the message.
    In my case it relates so well to a relationship I had with my best friend. Over span of my life so far, we would get so close she would never take that last step! She profess her love to me but always went back to whatever douche bag she was dating and complaining to me at the time. This year it finally put too much stress on the friendship and we stop talking for both our well being. I could never figure out who I was to her and I dunno who she is to me at all. from all our history together to the bad expeirences we had in our lifes, made a relationship IMPOSSIBLE

    General Comment"This song is about the give and take that every relationship counters. No romance actually ends in ‘and they live happily ever after’; it doesn’t mean that they end, It just means that there are going to be trials and tribulations in any healthy relationship." - Stephen Christian anberlinlyrics.tumblr.com June 2014

    General Comment"You're impossible to love or leave" not "lovely

    Also, it's "make my bones quake" not "moans"

    General CommentDoes anyone else think this song sounds pretty similar to "Said and Done"?
    By all means this song is great, but it kind of seems like Anberlin is drifting from the rock sound they used to have.

    General CommentI'm not really worried about their sound changing ( because all bands change), but I'm worried about their lyrics. They've gotten a little weak and not as heart felt

    Lyric Correctionthink these are the lyrics, feel free to delete this afterwards:

    You make my teeth clench and my hands shake
    Do you ever see what you do to me
    You're wearing me out just wearing me out
    But I'm wearing you down

    You're impossible to love or leave
    So impossible to win or please
    I'm wearing you out
    Just wearing you out
    But I'm wearing you down

    Take what you want from me
    It means nothing now
    Take everything from me
    It means nothing now
    Not so easy to forgive,
    Harder to forget
    Take what you want

    I make your lips wet
    And your bones quake
    Try to think through
    What I can do to you
    It's wearing me thin
    Can I begin
    To wear you out

    Take what you want from me
    It means nothing now
    Take everything from me
    It means nothing now
    Not so easy to forgive,
    Harder to forget
    Take what you want

    I'm impossible to figure out
    So impossible you had your doubts

    Take what you want from me
    It means nothing now
    Take everything honey
    It means nothing now
    Not so easy to forgive,
    Harder to forget

    Take what you want from me
    It means nothing now
    Take everything honey
    It means nothing now
    Not so easy to forgive
    Harder to forget
    Take what you want from me
    Take what you want from me

    General Commentwell at least one comment on this song has to do w/ the actual meaning. I think it's pretty straight-forward actually. He thinks she is impossible to please no matter what he does or gives to her. And whatever she did he can neither forgive nor forget. He sarcastically says "take everything, it means nothing now" since she means nothing now. She is "impossible."
