"paddy" as written by David Martin Kahne, Scott Baldwin, Elliot Margin, Zaac Margin and Samuel Margin....
I don't wanna be the one
To stop you from having fun
I've held you back for long enough
It was different when we fell in love

I see these things I never saw
You love me, I love you more
Not wasted time, but treasured years
It doesn't have to end in tears

I must admit, I momentarily fell into your maze
I must admit, I momentarily missed the good old days

It seems as though, you can't decide
Now it's time, I swallowed my pride
And put it all on the line
I told you not to waste my time
You're the sweetest thing, but you cut me deep
I can't eat and I can't sleep
I say these things, these cliche things
And now they all, make sense to me

I must admit, I momentarily fell into your maze
I must admit, I momentarily missed the good old days

The saddest thing's, I'm on the line
And you know, you got my time
You got my heart, you got my mind
You got my soul, and I'm not fine

I must admit, I momentarily fell into your maze
I must admit, I momentarily missed the good old days

    General CommentI believe, Sam the singer, has written this song about a relationship that needs to end. From my perspective, it comes across as once, earlier, in the relationship both the singer and his girlfriend were in love and wanted the same thing. However, now things have changed, careers paths don't match up, life goals don't align and maybe his girlfriend has been sleeping around...

    "It seems as though, you can't decide"
    "Now it's time, I swallowed my pride"
    "And put it all on the line"
    "I told you not to waste my time"

    It seems, in this verse, his girlfriend has been seeing someone else and now it's time for her decide who she picks/want's to do with her life. As the singer knows what he want's and is doing with his life, but doesn't want to stuff around anymore, and move on.

    "And you know, you got my time"
    "You got my heart, you got my mind"

    These lyrics here indicate to me, that Sam is more in love with his partner, then she is with him. However, he realises it's a waste of time now, as the relationship is not progressing; but he's still heavily in love with her. The problem he is having, is that she has more control of the relationship then him.

    Anyways, that's my two cents there. A situation I can relate too through many parts of my own life. Great song, great lyrics.
