Go
Before we both
Start to say some mean shit
That we cannot let go
You know it's broke
And I am such a train wreck

Getting attention but forgetting lessons
I know
Remembering presents and cleaning up messes
I don't
These are the things that separate you and me
That's why I'm telling you so:
Animal-shaped hedges and white, picket fences
Unknown

I know alone...

Go
Before we both
Start to say some mean shit
That we cannot let go
You know it's broke
And I am such a train wreck

Ignoring caresses and putting up defenses
I know (Such a trainwreck)
Subtle persuasion and communication
I don't (Such a trainwreck)
I broke its wings but tried to teach it to sing...
And maybe I should have known (Such a trainwreck)
Animal-shaped hedges and white, picket fences
Unknown

I know alone...

Do you want to see how much I can take?
Can't you just leave bad enough alone?

Go
Before we both
Start to say some mean shit

    General CommentTo me this sounds like a relationship I had with a girl. She was very kind to me at first but after a month of going out I found out otherwise. We could not get along at all and i was trying very hard to make it work when it seemed as if she was not trying at all. In fact she was making it worse. She swears she didnt want to break up but she did nothing to hold the relationship together.

    General CommentSounds like this guys relationship is falling apart and he is explaining why he is the way he is to the girl. She will have to make up her mind and take or leave him.

    General Commentthis song is great. i think this song is about how the two don't work together and are not meant for each other. in the end it should just be over but she continues to mess with him and she wants to make something work that's broken and can't be fixed. he just wants to let go.
