And I’ll wait around for one more minute, when one more could finish me off
And I think I’ll hold my breath for one more second
One more second’s never seemed so long... so go on

And I’ll just wait here by myself
I’ll sit and pull apart another year, when I remember nothing

Don’t try to decide ‘cause it’s an answer I can’t take
I know that you’ve tried, but you might break

One reaction to one direction and where it goes
I find myself regretting more than ever... and if only I had known

I want it all and I don’t want you to throw it all away for me... not for me

Sometimes I hate myself or leaving and I’ll never let you down again

    General CommentCounterfit used to be from Conneticut, and I think they are talking about someone they loved at home, asking them to come to San Diego. "Don't try to decide, cuz there's an answer I can't take". If that person doesn't come, they can't take it. "And I’ll wait around for one more minute, when one more could finish me off
    And I think I’ll hold my breath for one more second
    One more second’s never seemed so long... " Waiting for the decision, even though they can't. Regretting all that they left behind. They're an amazing band... such an understatement, there aren't words.
