Cut me out of this role.
I can't play it anymore.
It must be something in the water here.

Give me up,
I confess.

I feel as though I'm living less.
The strangest gravity affects my way.
Because I was born incomplete,
Drowning in the brevity.

Kind of like a road you're travelling on.
Everything in 2's
You often lose
You make me whole again
Everything in 2's

You never knew
You'd make me whole again.
Someone said, someone wrote,
We're floating tethered to a rope.

So complicate me,
I could use the weight.
In how you move the scenery,
Lover, how you mirror me.

But stop me if you've heard it all before.
And now and again,
You find yourself over your head.

In a cynical time, in you I find
A reason to live.

Cut me out of this role
I can't play it anymore
It must be something in the water here.

    General CommentI think that BTE is the greates in the world. I also think that this song is about a love that someone has found. Before this love, they thought that life was empty and not worth anything. After falling in love, the person thought their life was the greatest in the world. Even through bad times, their love could prevail. I also thought of this song for my girlfriend, Erin. I love her with all of my heart and someday want to spend the rest of my life with her. I love you Erin. BTE Forever!

    General CommentFocused inspiration.

    "Floating tethered to a rope" refers to that unsure feeling when you're just drifting through life. The rope is your center, perhaps your friends and family or your own sense of self. You meet someone you want to include in your life and you are weighed down in a way that does not way you down. It's an anchor; a rock. You're drawn to it.

    It doesn't define you but it moves you to move forward. That sense of completeness is the freedom to be who you are and to have someone accept you. Everytime you are with them you see that acceptance and it helps you to overcome adversity.

    "It must be something in the water here" is a play on the idea that some small towns have a chemical added to the water supply that makes you act or think a certain way. What is being said is that there is something to this that reminds me of why I want to stay in this with you. This is what I want and I want it for a long, long time.
