She says, he’s going straight to nowhere
He should buy a ticket home
She’s a straight line on a sharp bend
And he’s an ending on a road
He’s got no time to be a front man
Tie his shoes, wear his clothes
She will try to twist his fingers
He will try to break her bones

He’s doctor and he says he’s certified
Oh, she knows that that is wrong, when she just looks into his eyes
He’ll mend her heartbreak, and she says that he has the cure
But medicine don’t kick in like it used to anymore

God loves trier, and the devil loves a sin
Well, I guess he’ll be a liar, and she’ll take it on the chin

He’s left alone, and he doesn’t know
She’s in control, and he sees her ghost
Every time he looks into her eyes
And what he knows is wrong, is what she’ll say is right

He knows she means it
When she says “I love you back”
Oh, she knows just how to tease him
Keep him happy, it’s an act
And in the arms of all mistakes
Comes collision of a word
From the fragile sense of sorry
To the promise he misheard

But God loves trier, and the devil loves a sin
Well, I guess he’ll be a liar, and she’ll take it on the chin

He’s left alone, and he doesn’t know
She’s in control, and he sees her ghost
Every time he looks into her eyes
And what he knows is wrong, is what she’ll say is right

But God loves trier, and the devil loves a sin
Well, I guess I’ll be a liar, and I’ll take it on the chin

He’s left alone, and he doesn’t know
She’s in control, and he sees her ghost
Every time he looks into her eyes
And what he knows is wrong, is what she’ll say is right
And he sees a ghost, every time he looks into her eyes
And what he knows is wrong, is what she’ll say is right.

    My InterpretationI think this song talks about a guy who is in love with this girl, who keeps sending him messages that she wants him although she has no romantic interest on him.

    She cares about him deeply, and she thinks the best thing for him is to stop his relationship with her, but it seems as if he feels like he can't. She wants to let him get what he wants of her so she acts like she is the person he thinks she is, only she's not.

    She says, he’s going straight to nowhere
    He should buy a ticket home
    ------------------------------------
    she knows he's repeating a path that leads him nowhere with her
    she wants him to save himself from her hurting him again
    ------------------------------------


    She’s a straight line on a sharp bend
    And he’s an ending on a road
    ------------------------
    she is dangerous for him, he is not capable of the road she leads to
    their paths don't cross each others
    ------------------------


    He’s got no time to be a front man
    Tie his shoes, wear his clothes
    ----------------------
    he doesn't know how to escape, or doesn't want to
    even if that's what's good for him
    ----------------------


    She will try to twist his fingers
    ----------------------
    she will try to hurt him, so he'll see she's not good for him
    ----------------------


    He will try to break her bones
    He’s doctor and he says he’s certified
    -----------------------
    he will try to hurt her too, and then be the only one who can cure her.
    he knows she relys on him too and he uses that knowlege to make her interact with him
    -----------------------


    Oh, she knows that that is wrong, when she just looks into his eyes
    He’ll mend her heartbreak, and she says that he has the cure
    But medicine don’t kick in like it used to anymore
    -----------------------
    she knows he can't make her be better, get better.
    but then she convinces herself that mabey he will. mabey this time she will see him in the light they both hope to see each other.
    but she doesn't, and even though he mends her heartbreak it's only temporary.



    Later on the song it is told that she controls the relationship, although they both rely on each other.
    She loves him, she really does, and she acts how she acts to make him happy. He makes himself believe that she wants him to be happy because she wants a romantic relationship with him but that is not the case.

    When she apologizes for all the mess she couldn't help herself from making, he mis-hears it as a promise for future hope.

    He will keep trying but for nothing. He will keep lying to get close to her, and she'll keep believing it.
