"Get You In" as written by and Kevin Griffin....
I sit and watch your flowers
Wilting in the kitchen
I felt like I was one of them
Gasping for air
I go from room to room
Hoping to find you
I play my music louder
Than you'd like me to

Why can't I be your lover?
Can there be another?
And when I feel without
I want to get you in
Can't I be your lover?
At five o'clock you come shuffling in
And when I lock you out
I want to get you,
Get you, get you in

I understand that you
Are going through a hard time
But what you need to recognize
I'm in one too
You say that maybe we
Should take some time apart
But you go your way,
I'll get by, and you'll go get high
You just see if I mind

Why can't I be your lover?
Can there be another?
And when I feel without
I want to get you in
Why can't I be your lover?
At five o'clock you come shuffling in
And when I lock you out
I want to get you,
Let you, get you in

Well I could be wrong
I don't even know myself
And I must be strong
When you're gone so long
I don't need to know reasons why

What I wouldn't do for you

Why can't I be your lover?
Can there be another?
And when I feel without
I want to get you in
Why can't I be your lover?
At five o'clock you come shuffling in
And when I lock you out
I want to get you,
Let you, get you in
I want to get you in

    General CommentI'm a little confused as to what exactly this song means as well. Either he is in love with his roommate and she doesn't feel the same (I go from room to room hoping to find your presence/I play my music louder than you'd like me to) or he feels that his girlfriend is drifting away and he can't do anything about it.

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who loves this girl but she is going through a lot and keeps pushing him away. Its suffocating him and he compares himself to the dieing flowers. He's beating himself up because he loves her so much and doesn't know why she won't be with him. Maybe there is another? "i play my music than u like me too" meaning there r things about him that get under her skin like how he is expressing his feelings but it doesn't matter.
    He is trying to be compassionate and give her some space but he is going through something too and doesn't think it should stop them from being together. He wants them to help each other.
    She comes home at 5 oclock 'shuffling in' bcuz she was out late beating herself up with drugs and alcohol and it kills him so he tries not to care by saying like 'fine. u deal with ur hardships by getting high. I dont care.' but rlly he cares a lot ...
    "when i lock you out i want to let you, get you in" meaning he pushes her away but wants her to come closer. If she did one little thing to try to come closer he knows he will pull her right in.
