I can't play this game for you.
Your vowels are all gone and Scrabble's left only consonants for you.
I can't say if it's right or if it's the wrong thing to do.
Are you calling from a pay phone this time?
The lines aren't clear. Is everything okay on your side?

No one needs to know. No one needs to know right now.
Take a deep breath in don't let em break you down.
No one needs to know. No one needs to know right now.
Take a deep breath in don't let em break you down.

Who has the say on how the way things should be?
Who will take you home when the lights go on and your glass is empty?
Who will hold your breath when you're diving off the deep end?

Are you calling from a pay phone this time?
The lines aren't clear. Is everything okay on your side?

No one needs to know. No one needs to know right now.
Take a deep breath in don't let em break you down.
No one needs to know. No one needs to know right now.
Take a deep breath in don't let em break you down.

Don't let em break you down.
Don't let em break you down.

    General CommentThis song is my favourite on the album.
    It's so pretty.

    I think it must be about two people in a relationship they can't really control.
    There is probably some distance:
    "Are you calling from a payphone this time?
    the lines aren't clear. Is everything okay on your side?"
    Or some sort of closed off thoughts or something the guy is hiding in his head (maybe he was depressed or something before her: "scrabble's only left consonents for you"

    I think the girl is saying it's okay, and that he doesn't have to tell her,
    because it's probably no big deal or it doesn't matter. Not as long as they're together. And she'll be there for him.

    Gee, I wish people would leave their comment about what they think of it...(hint hint)
