I feel I shouldn’t need to tell you
That just ’cause you can do what you want
It doesn’t mean that you should
And just because the law tells us we’re grown ups now
It doesn’t mean you should allow yourself
To act without thinking harder first
And I’m not saying I’m better than you
In so many ways you are superior to me
No I’m just saying that I’m learning from you
And learning from your mistakes
Saves them from happening to me

All I want is to be honest with you
And say that just because I’m not involved
Doesn’t mean I’m not affected
I tend to stay out, but I can’t help but rue
Because I know you’ve got your head on
And it’s just not what I expected
And I would give up my sight
To know love like the love you have at home

This is my melody for melody
I’d already forgiven you completely
Please don’t regret what you did today
This is my melody for melody
Thanks for awkwardly hugging me so sweetly
And thanks for making my holiday

I know you’re smart at least to make up nice and quickly
But I’m unsure about what’s really going on in 45D
I’ll just sit back and relax, I’ll try to sleep, and ponder
Every word you might be saying and decide if I agree
With the points about love, that you’re making in my head
Should I judge you, or use it to analyse myself instead
Are you even talking about what I’ve guessed
Or should I plug myself back in and try and get some rest

All I try is to be honest with you
I’ll say that you’re a friend and without us
There’d be a lot less here of me
But I’m unsure if we share the same view
I’ve told you what I’m thinking
But you’re yet to tell me if we agree
And all I want is a girl
Who will love me, like she loves you

This is my melody for melody
I’d already forgiven you completely
Please don’t regret what you did today
This is my melody for melody
Thanks for awkwardly hugging me so sweetly
And thanks for making my holiday

    Song MeaningCharlie says in the album booklet that the song is about a friend who had their priorities in a mix, and didn't understand how their actions could affect those close to them, even if they aren't involved in the situation.

    Song MeaningYou know, I was looking over these today and realized that it sounds like it could describe Charlie's relationship with Alex Day, when Charlie knew that Alex was cheating on his girlfriends. If this is the case, then the only piece that doesn't make sense to me is the chorus, unless "Melody" (name likely changed) refers to either the girl who was being cheated on or the one who was (unknowingly?) cheating with him. Or I could be wrong and it could refer to Alex, or I could be TOTALLY wrong and it's about a different friend. But I have to say, this makes a lot more sense to me now that all that came out about Alex.
