If I could take one thing back I would write the perfect song for you
You would have never left
And if the chords progress the way I mapped them out
They will wipe your tears away and all your doubts
Cause it’s always been for you
Every mountain scaled for you
And every single day I’m falling down
I never want to say ‘You’re mine, right now’
A tear rolls down your cheek and hits the ground
And I’m falling down
You sit alone inside your room and rust
You give your trust to those who don’t deserve your trust
You put yourself through hell as you sweat pound for pound
But as the drama fades, tell me what will resound
It has always been for you
I sing every song for you
Could you stay forever and a day
Together come what may
If only I could say what I’m thinking baby
If only I could finally face the truth
I have always loved you

    General Commentok, imFLiPPiNroyalty in relation to your question, the way i see it he doesnt want to admit that cares so much about her, maybe in front of his mates, maybe it would scare her, i dunno, its just how i interpretted it.

    its a great song, which tells a good story which im sure alot of us could relate to.

    i reckon the end is great how he just seems to realise that he actually loves the girl.

    General Commenti think the "you're mine, right now" part means that he doesn't want to say "right now." he wants it to be forever and not just for that moment.

    General CommentYes, actually. Everyone of Say Anything's songs is awesome. Completely. Their new cd is awesome. Even better than their older stuff.

    General CommentFor me this is a touching song... The first verse is kind of trying to say you never wanted that "someone" to go and that everything you've done had always been for them. The the second verse really hits home for me because I am a worrier and I sit alone in my room every day and worry about the future and give people my trust who screw me over.

    General Comment"I never want to say ‘You’re mine, right now’"

    For some reason that seems to not make sense to me. Wouldn't he want to have the girl be his?

    I absolutely love this song, I'm just a tad bit confused.
