What will become of the truth
When we keep it in
Things we don't remember
When they ask us "when"

We did the things
That we learned we shouldn't do again
What wasn't learned from mistakes
We will make them

Maybe this is my heart and
Maybe it is yours
Burns away the eyes
Peering in our doors

If I wanna leave
I will
Stand on my feet
I do
Only takes these words you
Never believe are true
Never gonna chase somethin'
It's a total waste runnin'
After what they take in hundreds
look at what they praise - nothin'

Oh, we go
We don't know the way

Fire meets fire
We run
It's all the same

Oh, we go
We don't know the way

Maybe this is my heart and
Maybe it is yours
Burns away the eyes
Peering in our doors

If I wanna leave
I will
Stand on my feet
I do
Only takes these words you
Never believe are true
Never gonna chase somethin'
It's a total waste runnin'
After what they take in hundreds
look at what they praise - nothin'

If I wanna leave
I will
Stand on my feet
I do
Only takes these words you
Never believe are true

    General CommentTo me, this song is about the acceptance phase of a broken relationship. There's something so powerful about the line "If I want to leave I will, stand on my feet, I do". This is the person saying that he/she is done putting up with feeling broken and going back and fourth in the relationship. This goes along with the phrase "Never going to chase something, it's a total waste running". They also use the phrase "Only takes these words, you never believe are true" which represents the singer trying to convince the other person they love them, but the other person doesn't believe them; therefor they are no longer trying to win them back.
