When you come back to your senses
Your heart overcomes your pride
I’ll be here with an open mind
Here to break your fall from misery
You expect me to love just like you
Even though you won’t admit that
You sink your teeth into something
You figure it’ll come biting back

But I am not made to tag along, when everything seems wrong
And I still can breath when you are gone, when everything seems wrong
When everything seems wrong to you

I don’t know if we’d be better off
Living our own separate lives
Talking every once or twice
Whenever we need each other
I can’t picture another arm around you
Wonder how I would react
Would I scream and shout in anger,
Or would I maintain some tact?


You know that you’re my best friend
That kind of love can never run out
You know more about me than I know
Things I’d never dream of showing
But I can’t change this way I’m feeling
And I’m not asking for miles of room
Just a little time to fill my tank up
Before I come on back to you

    General Commentgreat song...the melody, lyrical content, and his voice
    song about relationships...complaining about the other seeing the bad in everything about him...but too he not knowing whether to commit or not...seems like he would be ok not being in the relationship but
    "I can’t picture another arm around you"

    General Commenti think hes not sure whether or not he wants 2 take a break from the relationship that he is in.. he knows he could b okay w/o her, but that he couldnt stand it if she was w/ someone else....

    General CommentI just saw Ari Hest live on Saturday and he is such an incredibly talented musician! I've been listening to his music for about a year now and this is the first time I got to go see him in concert...everyone who likes his music should DEFINITELY see him live!! I even got to meet him afterwards and get an autograph and picture with him!! He is such a nice guy! Anyways....about the song...I think it's about a relationship that's just starting to turn sour, and he is willing to do anything to try and save it, but she is not cooperating and wants to break free...

    General Commenti saw him play a couple of years ago, back in probably 2001 or 2002. he is amazing. if you like this, you should check out the three albums before his major label release. but i really enjoy this song and his voice
