Black is a cast
And two is a crowd
And gold rim is an answer.
And black is a crowd.
I am just for you
As you are not for me

So even if you stop
You’re sitting here by yourself
You can never try to answer anyone
You can never start and see
What you’re doing to me.

Kiss
Oh they were the ones
They dressed like something so special
And death
Oh is to begin
Caress
I think it’s a sin

Yeah I was alone
Only ‘til you took me away
And you can never stop
You’re sitting here by yourself
You could never try to argue anyone
You would never stop and see
What you’re doing to me.

I’m alone
While he was standing next to you
And days prolong
And there was time
I just you wait and see

Waiting for a bottle of truth
I’m just a lonely guy in my youth

And waiting for you is all I wanna do
So if you could stop
You’re sitting here by yourself
You could never try to argue anyone
You would never stop and see
What you’re doing to me

You could never stop
You’re sitting all by yourself
You could never try to answer anything
You would never stop and see
What you’re doing to me
What you’re doing to me
What you’re doing to me
What are you doing to me?
Yeah
Yeah

    General CommentThis song seems to be about how a guy likes this girl and he thinks that he would be good for her but doesnt have the guts to talk to her. Also he seems to blame her for not coming to him.

    General Commenti think he is saying "so even if you stop your sitting here by yourself you could never try to answer anyone you could never stop and see what your doing to me..." And he says "All alone, while he was standing next to you" i think.

    as far as meaning goes - there is something between these two, but the girl has some other guy maybe or some other interest...hence the "all alone (or im alone) while he was standing next to you.." part. and pete says "ill wait for you" but he doesnt think she takes the time to realize how she is hurting him, by leading him on or dragging this out. And that "what are you doing to me? ahh yeah, yeah... whoooooahhh" is so powerfull. That note he sings at the end is just him 'running out of words' and just letting his pain out in a wail. i love that part.

    General Commentthe part about "waiting for a bottle of truth" and "waiting for you is all i want to do" i think refers to how he is waiting for the girl to present her true self, maybe which is a person that shows love towards Pete. I think Pete shares some feelings that everyone, both men and women, have when he mentions "waiting for a bottle of truth". Everyone in life wants something that is true and pure, and that is what Pete is waiting for in the girl--he is waiting for the pure and truthful side of her.----Maybe?

    General Commentwell, my take is that, he liked a girl. and that girl had or liked someone else. and i guess, theyve been friends for a while. or at least, known each other. and she just doesnt realise how much he liked/loved her. she might like him too, cause i think theres flirtation between them, "... kiss, ... caress". oh well, thats what i think. you know what, Pete Yorn is the man! hahaha. :-D

    General CommentI always think that maybe Kiss is sort of one of those play bits.
    He's wanting to be kissed, yet he diverts intention by going on about the Band instead.

    General Commentthis song means exactly what ive been through with a guy

    the girl obviously led him on.. he gave her his everything, she led him on, he thought they might be going somewhere.. gave her real kisses.. but in the end she thought it was just for fun.. or at least said it was. he was lonely... fell for her.. and she never realized what she was doing to him. he is willing to wait for her.. bc he doesnt want to give up on somthing that he had really believed in.

    General CommentI think the waiting for a bottle of truth is saying, I am waiting until I am drunk enough to actually tell you how I feel
