i've heard this one before about the princess and the pauper and i know just how it ends now it doesn't end well it just ends some things you learn from hurting yourself and some things you learn from hurting someone else and anyway i don't think i'll be coming back here again 'cause she's got plans and all and i don't think i fit in she said that i'm a shining star in her sky and i feel that far away i'll make a wish for the best of all the little things that i miss and just walk away always the wrong way never the right way forward and backward over and over talk is cheap so i bought every word you said it scared me half to death now i'm half dead and anyway i don't think i'll be coming back here again 'cause she's got plans and all and i don't think i fit in every time that i fall you're standing over me

    General CommentI love this song!

    I'm not sure of the exact meaning, but to me this song is about a guy who likes this girl as more than a friend. The girl thinks of the guy as a really really close friend but nothing more. The guy tries hard to please the girl but she still only thinks of him as a good friend, and it hurts him to know that is all that she thinks of him so, he is just going to try and stay out of her life.

    I think I might be completely off, but that's how I see it.

    General Commentit makes me think of someone who loves someone, but believes the other person is too good for them and give up on their love
