She comes up and over time
She'll see what I could be
A cold routine or something
It just won't stop touching me
And I wait here another time
Like a thousand times before
I'm dropping out and faded
But I keep on wanting more

She comes up another time
And she really really doesn't care
That I can't keep time or the rhythm straight
'Cause it's one thing she don't dare
And it's alright I drop the line
Now it's one thing to be free
Well I never really had a thing for that
But it's everything I need

And you don't ever understand
It's right here in our hands
The outline of our lives
It's over now

And she wakes up from a deeper sleep
A nightmare through and through
She won't stop trippin' on the daytime vibe
But that's one thing I won't do
Then it's over and back again
And she's still on the attack
But I'm convinced I've found a reason
To keep her coming back

And you don't ever understand
It's right here in our hands
The outline of our lives
It's over now

You won't ever be happier
Until you find that special place where you belong
And you won't ever be happier
Until you find that only way
Until you find the only way back home

You don't ever understand
It's right here in our hands
The outline of our lives
It's over now
It's over now
It's over now

    General Commentin the first verse, he keeps expecting her to be more than what she is. its like he keeps needing more from her, but she can't give it. in the second, its about how she never tries to make him any better, because she know she can't be better herself. and he doesn't want to leave her, doesn't want it to be over, but its what he needs. in the third, she wakes up to realize that she needs him, too, but he can't take her back because he knows he'll never be satisfied with her, that she'll never be able to fullfil all of his needs. she's painfully aware of the reality that she is living, and now knows that some things just can't be changed. thats what i think anyway.
