I'm here alone on the telephone line
I'm right where you want me to be
And I'll wait alone and never ask why
I'll be where you want me to be

And I know...
I've been here before and I know your kind
You're right where I want you to be
Now I'll say what I think
I'll never be what you want me to be
(Just to be who I am)
What do you want me to be?

You'll be on your knees

Tell me
Tell me it's not true

    General Commenti think its an awesome song so lets start with that, I love the story it tells basically, to me it seems like a girlfriend that is being demanding and not respecting what he has to do, and when he's saying "I'm here where you want me to be" Its like I am here, I might not be here 24-7 but I'll be here to love you all the same and never ask why, but I feel that maybe she has something to hide like she has done wrong as well so by ending up telling the truth, where the "You'll be on your knees" as in begging for forgiveness, and not accepting that he has had enough and finally wants out.

    General CommentJust an awesome song, that needs more love. Under-rated relative to a lot of FNM stuff.

    And yeah, it's about unrequited love, or lost love, whichever.

    General CommentThey were going to make this song the fourth single for Album of the Year, don't know what stopped them.

    Of course, when I think of the meaning to this song, I think of it to be more like the girl's leading him on into thinking she loves him, while HE is the one that becomes obsessed. But he can't help how he feels.

    Something among those lines.

    General CommentI think it's about a guy calling a sex hotline. And he is getting a little bit frustrated that it is meaningless and ultimately a lie.
