Always you need me lover
For always release me lover

I want to give you the lowdown
I want to give you the face to face

Always is all I can give
Isn't quite what you take me for

I'll act in a certain way
I control what I can
That's the man I am
Well it pains me to say
And I do what I can
That's the man I am

Always, always, always
Always release me lover

I want to give you the face to face

(Won't let you go)
(Won't let you go)
(What'll you do?)

I want to miss some more

I'll relax in a certain way
I control what I can
That's the man I am
Well it pains me to say
And I do what I can
That's the man I am (Coming out of the waste)
That's the man I am (Clearing out of the shade)

All that you've known
Be as it may
All that you've shown
Reach in and try all day (Coming out of the waste)
I wanna try all day (Clearing out of the shade)

All that I know
Is you'll be ok
Follow your soul and it tells you to fly away (Coming out of the waste)
I wanna fly all day (Clearing out of the shade)

All that you've known
Be as it may
All that you've shone
Reach in and shine all day (Coming out of the waste)
I wanna shine all day (Clearing out of the shade)

    General CommentGod I love this song so much and this band so much...

    I think that this song is about two people who love and care about each other and are off and on but finally one of them decides to finally call it off though only cause they think the other person would benefit from the whole ordeal.

    Its a sad song, but I think it may go deeper....

    I don't know, just a thought :)

    General CommentLeave it to Paul to put such beautiful and idle words to use.

    General CommentThe beginning is pretty boring, but the song redeems itself as soon as the chorus starts. It just sounds so drab until he starts making those promises

    General CommentGood intentions, honesty, all we bring to the table in a new relationship, or to the crossroads of one that's struggling but worth fighting to keep alive...
