All my old lovers surround me
Like virgins clean today
Waist deep in the water
Pushing my body away

Oh what makes me go
To put the past away?
Oh how many drops can you squeeze out to explain
What happened one day?

Here one of them stayed behind
And trailed me from afar
I saw her eyes lit up
Like colors in the dark

But when our gazes met
I was half a world away
It still shortens my breath
As I turn to say

When we meet another way
You won’t recognize my face
When we meet one way
Or another, you won’t
You won’t speak up, speak up, speak up

When we meet one way
You won’t recognize my face
When we meet one way
Or another, you won’t
You won’t speak up, speak up, speak up

And one day it suits me
The next it bleeds me dry
It plays out like a lifetime
Before the morning light

How beautiful it was to be anything at all
But somehow it strikes me
That time can’t beat all

When we meet another way
You won’t recognize my face
When we meet one way
Or another, you won’t
You won’t speak up, speak up, speak up

When we meet one way
You won’t recognize my face
When we meet one way
Or another, you won’t
You won’t speak up, speak up, speak up

You won’t speak up, speak up
You won’t speak up, speak up
You won’t speak up, speak up

    General CommentThe songs about this Guy who sits down and reminisce's about all memories he had of his old lover, how everytime he tryed to get closer they would push him away (possibly afraid of taking the next step).
    First Verse:
    "All my old Lovers Surround me like Virgins clean today Waist deep in the Water Pushing my Body away"

    Now he can't seen to get over the past and he's like really hurt, and decides that one day he'll get over it.
    Second Verse:
    "Oh what Makes me go
    To out the Past away?
    Oh how many drop can you sqeeze outout to explain
    What happened one day"

    Still reminiscing he recalls a time that within all of his lovers that pushed him away there was only one, Who stayed behind and still wanted to be with him. But it's to late he has already drifted away from his wanting.Then he basically tells her she'll get over it and possibly won't even remember him the next time they met. As he looks back on that he realize he pushed her away as he was once pushed.

    Third Verse:
    "Here's one who stayed behind
    And trailed me from afar
    I saw her eyes lit up like colors in the dark"
    "But when our gaze met
    I was half a world away
    It still shortens my breath
    To turn and say"
    (Hook)
    When we meet another way you won't recognize my face..
    When we meet one way, or another you won't, you won't speak up, speak up, speak up...
