I'm sick of standing with my hands in my pockets.
I'm coming in.
Been broke down, choked out, not speaking, not breathing in.
Are we gonna fix it?
When are we gonna start?
If it's really too late, I guess I'm looking back.
If it's really just time, you can have all of it.
If that's where we think straight,
I'll do anything to keep us from feeling choked and separated.
'Cause it's all the same things again and again.
Fall down, repeat, fall down, keep falling down.
Is this what we're doing?
What are we doing?
Fall down, and repeat, fall down, keep falling.

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite songs. it speaks in a way i never could. hwm isn't really known for their "love" songs, persay, but this one is a favorite of mine. great closer on their last tour also, and chris gives it his all. just great. Esto es para tú, honeybuns.

    General CommentHWM are crazy, this song is as well. I like how it all comes together... no part stands out too much but when you put all the little riffs and lyrics and junk together the song kicks ass.

    General CommentI like the build up before the song, like the scaling of the chords on the guitar, then the 'ohhhhhhhhh...sick! of standing!

    General CommentIt's quite a depressing song really. Especially towards the end with the "Fall down, and repeat, fall down, keep falling." bit. But it's depressing in a good way, because like pezgirl said, it makes you wanna change the way you live your life.

    General CommentThere is so much I want to say about this song right now... it fits my current situation to a T.

    Basically, it's about being impatient towards not knowing where two people stand in a relationship. The other person is not ready to commit, and the singer is promising that there's nothing that could have already ruined their relationship, and there's nothing that could ruin it in the future, if the other person is willing to invest in the relationship what the singer already has. As things are now, they are just slowly drifting apart and this song is a plea to keep that from happening.
