Over and over I keep wonderin' why
Then I give up and see that look in your eyes
Cause if I trip and fall, I'll be to blame
And if I hit the wall, I'll still be the same

Wasting your time with your so called friends
The one's you adore and the one's you pretend
And it's kind of sad and deranged
But it's not so bad that it can't be explained

Cause in my mind it's all a waste of time
And there's no excuse at all
Then I realize, surprise
You were right all along

And I want to know have I gone too far
Have I sunk to brand new low
And I want to know if I've gone too far
Cause I've lost all my self control

Guilty as charged I've been convicted and tried
Was it too much to ask for you to take my side
Cause there's nothing here left to defend
When it's always me that you blame in the end

Cause in my mind it's the perfect crime
And there's no excuse at all
Then I realize, surprise
You were right all along

And I want to know have I gone too far
Have I sunk to brand new low
And I want to know if I've gone too far
Cause I've lost all my self control

Nothing is what it seems,
To me
You're sleeping without the dreams

Without you, nothing defines me
When I'm slippin' away
Its only you that can find me
And I'm over my head again
I've fallen from end to end

And I want to know if I've gone too far
And I want to know if I've gone too far
And I want to know if I've gone too far
Cause I've lost all my self control
Cause I've lost all my self control
Now I've sunk to a brand new low

Brand new low
(There's nothing new without you)
Brand new low
(Nothing here without you)
Brand new low
(I'm slipping away without you)
Have I sunk to a brand new low

    General CommentThis is about the singer's relationship with his girlfriend. He doesn't like some of the stuff she does, like blaming him for everything that goes wrong. They fight often. But finally, he sees that she was actually right all along and realizes that he needs her.

    It's a great song. I'll always remember it from the NHL 2002 soundtrack.

    General CommentIt really grinds my gears when people automatically assume that songs are about relationships. Just because this song used to get tons of radio play doesn't mean it fits into the generic category of "break-up song" or "love song."

    Personally, I don't take Treble Charger's lyrics to seriously. They're a bit more concerned about making the lyrics rhyme than getting a point across. (I do love the band though, they chill me out.)

    And after all of this ranting, I admit that I have no idea what this song is about either.
