She said
"Take a step back but please keep me in frame."
So I spent the next five years
standing in your way
I walked in with you alone
I'm walking out with you alone.
And I know just how you'd get
back at me
If I said that these songs
were about you.
You'd cry and say:
"I never meant to make you feel this way"
You'd cry and say:
"well it's been done, and it's too late"
Step back, but please keep me in frame
(keep me in frame, keep me in frame)
and I spent the next five years standing in your way.
I walked in with you alone
I'm walking out with you alone.
And it's too late.
and all that I have left
to give you now
to is a poor gift and that's myself.
She said
"take a step back,
but please keep me in frame"
(keep me in frame, keep me in frame)
and I spent so many years
just standing in your way
you walk in with me alone
and you walk out with me alone.
If I told you this song was about you.
(you'd cry and say, cry and say)
"I never meant to make you feel this way."
If I told you that this song was about you.
(you'd cry and say, cry and say)
its been done and it's too late.

    My Interpretation"She said take a step back, but please keep me in frame."

    Besides the obvious photography reference, she told him to wait for her because they may not have been ready for the relationship. Maybe they were really good friends and not even in one. So she says keep me in mind, but move on to someone else in the meantime. Yet later, she says well it's been done and it's too late. Going back to "I've Never Told That To Anyone" or "I Told You So," notice he says that he drives by two streets a day with her last name and that we lose ourselves to find somebody else. He stood in her way for years because the timing was always off, or he had issues of confidence and commitment, etc. Maybe they were friends and she didn't want to ruin that.

    Another man came along that was everything she needed in a relationship, and they end up getting married in the end. So thus, "well it's been done, and it's too late." He walked in with her, alone. He walked out alone. In the end he is alone, and she is married. Thus, he was only in her way, never got the chance to be what she needed, and she ended up marrying the other guy.
