You and me
We sit and talk of friendship then I ask
If you can see
If we could be together forever

I see the light die in your eyes
Because you're scared you'll hurt
So you don't want to try

Well take a chance and come home with me
You could stay for eternity
If you try then at least you'll see
Then you'll never regret the things we never did

You turn to me
I see your eyes
And somehow they cease to shine
You smile at me
Yet I can see
You don't think we can make it

You see the light die in my eyes
Because I'm scared to lose you
I wish you would try


I see the light die in your eyes
Because you're scared you'll hurt
So you don't want to try


You'll never
You'll never regret the things we never did

The things we never did

    I think it's about two people who are friends, best friends even, and one of them suggests maybe they could be more than that. To which the other person backs off, scared it'll ruin what they have.

    And the 2nd verse is the original person scared that he'she'll lose the other if nothing else happens.

    It's that friends/more then friends? route that always crops up.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
