you look at me like i'm a rose
singing a song that you don't know
and you always walk so slow
if i was foolish i would chase
a feeling i long ago let fade
and we could be good for days
you take what you want
you wear it out
i'm not trying to be a rose
you see me how
i wish i was
but i'm not trying to be seen
you strike a chord with all my friends
saying that stuff that will transcend
a sad story with an end
but if i just cloy myself in light
and stare at your picture late at night
then i could just close my eyes
you take what you want
you call me back
i'm not trying to be yours
you indulge me
i indulge you
but i'm not trying to have it all

    General CommentI think this is a sad song and not too difficult to decipher.

    A persons actions are being described- someone who is idealizing the person who they like, but she is saying that this person does not know what they are talking about. The person who does the liking does not do it with the other persons best interest in mine- they just do it because it makes them feel good even though the other person does not really want to indulge their advances.

    The reason I comment is because I think I am the person pushing myself on someone- so of course- one becomes more introspective about a song when you see yourself/situation in it. It hurts to know the person you like does not share your affections.
