He said that it felt good
Felt good to be alive
He never did amount too much
He never did try hard enough

This time I won´t be caught off guard
Just like all other times before
It doesn´t mean that much to me
Loving never meant that much to me

I never said that it felt good
I felt good to know
Everything that you needed to know
I guess you never really tried

This time I won't be caught off guard
Just like all the other times before
It doesn't mean that much to me
Loving never mean very much to me

I guess you never really tried (4x)
Hard enough (4x)

    General CommentAww, no comments on this song yet? It's beautiful, one of my TITR favs.

    I interpret this song as being about, perhaps, him having a friend who was in love with some chick but then his friend wasn't able to live up to her expectations ("he never did try hard enough"). And then, afterwards, the chick leaves his friend and then comes to him, but he doesn't want to get into it because he knows he'll end up the same as his friend and not live up.
