An unprecedented pain got me sending this message to you
Got my claws out now in your name
I don't know what else that I can do
Oh, and I would write a thousand songs if I thought it would help
Oh, and I won't spend another night underneath your spell

And how long, how long
Should I keep holding on?
I'm waiting for that ship to come in
Changing the wind to blow through
I hold out my hand
Nothing more I can do
Guess I just want everything
Everything to hold you

Say you got a new girlfriend
Resting there beside you in your bed
Her head lays where mine used to lay
Nestled in the hollow of your chest
But I never meant to end up so competitive
Does she know you told me it'd be my place as for long as we lived?

How long, how long
Should I keep holding on?
I'm waiting for that ship to come in
A change in the wind to blow through
I hold out my hand
Nothing more I can do
I just want everything
Everything to hold you

My heart rang out
Like a shot in the night
And it makes that sound for the rest of my life

My heart rang out
Like a shot in the night
And it makes that sound for the rest of my life

For the rest of my life

    Song MeaningAwesome tune.

    About the longing, the hurt of lost love. Holding on and hoping that they come back, being so jealous and comparing yourself to the new love of theirs. Holding out your hand, baring your soul, that is all you can do to try and win them back. Knowing that you will love them for the rest of your life.

    Brilliant.
