The stage was set again
And I still didn't notice exactly what was going on there
Did I hear you say something?
Or was it another childish innuendo?
I chose to be alone
Now I can't complain

I've been locked-out before
But now your welcome mat has been pulled from beneath my feet
Will I still be getting my turns?
Now I know I should have made my move some time ago
I chose to be alone
Now I can't complain

I'll just mope around for awhile
Because it's all that I can do

The hardest part of making my mistakes
I always rub them in my face
What have I done?
I hope you'll never known
Why would you care anyway?

Do you still talk about me?
I know it sounds so silly, but it means so much to me
Do you still talk about me?
Another face in your audience
is what I hoped I'd never be

Will I still be getting my turns?
Now I know I should have made my move some time ago
I chose to be alone
Now I can't complain

    General CommentFrom personal experience, it sounds like the character in this song is or has been infatuated with a really self-absorbed girl, someone basically pretty insecure who craves a lot of attention especially from guys. "Will I still be getting my turn?... another face in your audience, is what I hoped I'd never be".
    Another facet of the story is his inability to be upfront about his feelings, and the girl has obviously gotten tired of waiting for him to make the first move: "now I know I should have made my move some time ago... I've been locked out before, but now your welcome mat has been pulled from beneath my feet".
    He realizes it is his own indecision that has left him in this position: "I chose to be alone, now I can't complain... I'll just mope around for a while, cause it's all that I can do".
    He is also really insecure and hard on himself about it: "The hardest part of making my mistakes, I always rub them in my face... I hope you'll never know, why would you care anyway?"
    I think the meaning of this song is about two people with issues, and how they both let their insecurities cause a lack of communication and get in the way of their relationships.
