I know there's something that your dying to tell me
I hope its not about you in case you love me

Make sure no-one finds out
Tell me all about it
Don't keep it to yourself
Because I have been through hell
I never needed your cry
I know you love me
It doesn't matter because I'll make you crawl

I know that your ashamed
So ashamed that is kills you
Don't you know that your ashamed
So much that it kills you

There's always something that makes you guilty
There's still something that your dying to tell me

Make sure no-one finds out
Tell me all about it
Don't keep it to yourself
Because I'll beg for more
I never needed your cry
I love your cry
It doesn't matter because I'll make you crawl

I know that your ashamed
So ashamed that is kills you
Don't you know that your ashamed
So much that it kills you

    General Comment:well that's a little harsh but Matt does seem to think rock lyrics constitute bitter love....
    I really tought the first lines were
    "I know theres something that your dying to tell me
    I hope it's not about you pictures of me"
    What does ebody else think?

    General Comment:I know there's something that you're dying to tell me
    I hope it's not about your future without me
    Make sure no one finds out
    Tell me all about it
    Don't keep it to yourself
    Cos I can't bear the thought
    I'll never leave you quietly
    I know you'll find me
    It doesn't matter
    Cos I need you here
    I know that you're ashamed
    So emotional that it kills you
    Don't you know that you're ashamed
    So emotional it kills you
    There's always something that makes you guilty
    There's just something that you're dying to tell me
    Make sure no one finds out
    Tell me all about it
    Don't keep it to yourself
    Cos I can't bear the thought
    I'll never leave you quietly
    I know you'll find me
    It doesn't matter
    Cos I need you here
    I know that you're ashamed
    So emotional that it kills you
    Don't you know that you're ashamed
    So emotional it kills you

    That's what I always thought the lyrics were... they may still be wrong but they def. make more sense than the ones above. This song is not one of their best, but i still like it; the meaning seems pretty simple but i think it clearly describes that moment when you know someone's about to say something you don't want to hear.

    General Comment:I know there’s something that you’re dying to tell me
    I hope it’s not about the truth - you love me

    Make sure no-one finds out
    Tell me all about it
    Don’t keep it to yourself
    Cause I can’t bear the thought
    Of never hear me crying
    Cause I know you’re crying
    Don’t you want me? Cause I need you so

    I know that you’re ashamed
    So emotional that it kills you
    Don’t you know that you’re ashamed?
    So emotional that it kills you

    There’s always something that makes you guilty
    I’m sure there’s something that you’re dying to tell me

    Make sure no-one finds out
    Tell me all about it
    Don’t keep it to yourself
    Cause I can’t bare the thought
    Of never hear me crying
    Cause I know you’re crying
    Doesn’t matter ‘cause it makes you so

    Don’t you know that you’re ashamed
    So emotional that it kills you
    Don’t you know that you’re ashamed
    So emotional that it kills you

    Everywhere seems to have different lyrics, but I think these are the most accurate.
    Basically, guy likes girl, girl too ashamed to admit it, maybe is already in relationship, so is hiding feelings, but he wants her to admit them.

    General Comment:Not Muse's best but good enough to make me listen to it right now! I think it's about someone who loves Matt but doesn't want to admit it, but Matt knows both that this person loves him and that they're ashamed ("i know that you're ashamed")
    Or could it possibly be about someone who's just realised they're gay?

    General Comment:first off, i think some of those lyrics are wrong.. and uh, this song, its about someone (we'll call them person "a") loving him, excet no one else knows. person "a" has tried to keep it hidden, (because they are ashamed of it) but he can tell how much person "a" loves him, and is using that against them, making himself feel better than person "a."

    General Comment:The bass in this song really reminds me of "I Am One" by The Smashing Pumpkins.

    General Comment:Perhaps its about somebody who's delusional...and thinks this other person loves them and is just so sure about it when in fact their feelings are completely neutral.

    That's always the vibe I got from it anyway, because the song never confirms that this person has the emotions...just that he 'knows' that this person loves him.

    But who knows what the crap this guy thinks about.

    General Comment:Holy Shit. The first lyrics couldn't be more wrong!
    This is what I hear:

    I know there's something that you’re dying to tell me
    I hope it's not about your future without me

    Make sure that no one finds out
    Tell me all about it
    Don't keep it to yourself
    Cos I can't bear the thought

    I'll never leave you quietly
    I know you'll find me
    It doesn't matter
    Cos I make you crawl



    I know that you’re ashamed
    So emotional that it kills you
    Don't you know that you’re ashamed
    So emotional it kills you

    There's always something that makes you guilty
    There's still something that you’re dying to tell me

    Make sure that no one finds out
    Tell me all about it
    Don't keep it to yourself
    Cos I can't bear the thought

    I'll never leave you quietly
    I know you'll find me
    It doesn't matter
    Cos I make you crawl

    I know that you’re ashamed
    So emotional it kills you
    Don't you know that you’re ashamed
    So emotional it kills you

    It is possibly about a girl whose partner thinks she is uncertain about the relation but is too ashamed to tell him.
