I can hardly make you mine
Tell it to you all the time
At the end of a long day
and when I wake

If you could just give me sign
We could leave it all behind
Stop taking the long way before we play

I don't think I can make it
and I know you're the one
Staring into the tears like a loaded gun

Well, I can hardly make you mine
Tell it to you all the time
But you never wanted, but you had to take
So I can never give you up
I guess it's cause it's just a crush
before the end of a long day and then I wake

But I know you're not the one or the only
But we both know what it's like to be lonely
Well, these fantasies, they left us lonely
Boy, just bring all your love back to me
I guess for now this is how it'll be

I don't think I can make it
Oh, you're the one
Staring into the tears like a loaded gun.
I don't think I can make it
Oh, you're the one
Staring into the tears like a loaded gun.

    Song MeaningThis song reminds me of my best friend (who is a boy and goes to my school) Lately this song feels like I love him so much but, I have a boyfriend from another country still my username represents it.

    Song MeaningMadeline Follin and Brian Oblivian were very open about this album being a reflection on their relationship ending.

    "Stop taking the long way before we play" is a pretty literal lyric about avoiding each other during shows. I'm not sure who ended the relationship and who wanted to keep it going, but it was obviously written from the latter's perspective. Great song, very touching knowing the reality of the lyrics.
