I'm feeling distracted
And likewise attracted
To all the things that you let me know
To all the things that you can't let go.

You're waiting for friction
This empty addiction
Is forcing me to intervene
Let's break out of this scene.

I know I'm not alone
I'm not the only one who is broken
And I know I'll never let you go
I could watch the world pass by
Just as long as it's you and I

You and I
I watch you take over
Ill give you this offer
Take my hand and we will run away
Leave behind our past to stay
Decaying till its rotten
Well have long forgotten
The memories that will haunt your heart

Lets tear this town apart
I know Im not alone
Im not the only one who is broken
And I know Ill never let you go
I could watch the world pass by
Just as long as its you and I
You and I

We watched the world go by
(But if its you and I)
Then we will never die
(No we can never die)
We watch the world go by
But if its you and I
Then we will never die

I know Im not alone
Im not the only one who is broken
And I know Ill never let you go
I could watch the world pass by
Just as long as its you and I
You and I
I know Im not alone
Im not the only one who is broken
And I know Ill never let you go
I could watch the world pass by
Just as long as its you and I
You and I...

    My InterpretationTo me, it seems like this song is about a guy who has feelings for a close friend. This girl has a troubled past and some difficult memories, and he does too. He thinks that together they can escape.
