Gonna take my time
I have all the time in the world
To make you mine
It is written in the stars above
How god's degree
You'll be right here by my side
Right next to me
You can run but you can not hide

Don't say you want me
Don't say you need me
Don't say you love me
Its understood
Don't say your happy
I'll play without me
I know you can't be
Cause it's no good

I'll be fine
I'll be waiting patiently
Till you see the signs
And come running to my open arms
Will you realize
Do we have to wait till our worlds collide
Open up your eyes
You counted back the time

It's no......good

    General CommentOriginally a depeche mode song. I think the line "i'll play without me" should be "Out there without me." I have yet to hear Chevelle's version of this song.

    General Commentalso doesn't the second verse say "you can't turn back the tide" not "you counted back the time"? lensflare is right about the other lyric

    General CommentI think this song is about a man who is in love with a woman who doesn't share the same feelings for him. She may not even know he exists, but he "knows" eventually they will be together. To me, it's kind of stalker-ish. I love the ending though, when he gets frustrated and begins yelling... I heart Chevelle!
