tomorrow might be the day I die
so I want, or rather must, confide
all these things I did, or did not,
try to hide.
well, if boys are boys and
girls are girls.
then boys and girls
are sometimes confused
and I am confused most all the time.

well let's get one thing right
our friends are good
and their support is great
but the outcome is everything
and that's left to me and you

so if today is that day I dread
then at least it can be said
that we, we did things right.
we wrestled with our sense of pride
and even if it didn't sound like a battle cry.
still we, we did things right.

we hung up our relationships
for everyone to see
then blind interpretations
couldn't say what's right for you or me
and we could find out what we want
and make no apologies
because we couldn't coexist
any other way.

    General CommentFrom Their Website:
    " this is a song i felt like it was really important for me to write. it's about several things. but mostly it's about being honest with the people close to you about your romantic feelings and/or the lack of feelings. sometimes that is so much more difficult than we can even imagine. sometimes I struggle with my sexuality, at times i have no idea what it is i want, sometimes i fear rejection, sometimes I just have trouble having the courage to express myself about something that makes me feel so naked. i have lost a lot in my life because of these fears, and although facing them head on may not make the outcome any better.. it's definitely better to be done with it and move on. and if things are good, if people have the same feelings, then see that they are celebrated, that we move on and make the most of the short time two people may have together. that we are not afraid of what people around us think. that also means respecting the intense feelings involved in the personal relationships of friends close to me.. and to trying not be judgmental, trying not put my own rationalizations into their lives... because it is up to them, and more than anything I want them to be as happy as they can be."
