I collapse from working harder than...
The average work-aholic
I intend on reaching father than...
To get exactly what I fight so hard and labor for
And crack the surface of what I intend to be
Not for you
You're too hard to please

How do I meet your impossible needs?
How can I reach with you pulling on me?
With your impossible needs
Impossible needs
How can I reach with you pulling on me?

I snap but still hang on
By the thread that you throw me
One hand to just hang on
And the other to catch me
One too many ticks
Past the second that you were so happy
I can't go back around again
Not for you
You're too hard to please

Repeat Chorus

In a round-about way, I'm better than this
But you keep me from taking a chance
On what I believe I am
And what you think makes me a man

Repeat Chorus

    General CommentELIAS seems to be dealing with a couple of things,
    First, Some one who expects him to achieve, and strive farther then is humanly possible.
    Secondly, Is the idea that this person has made him question his own beliefs. He believes that all these things he's been doing make him a man, but the other person disagrees, and therefore, causes ELIAS to doubt himself. That's where the taking chances comes in. He's saying that he'd like to take chances, but his doubts are now holding him back. But the chorus seems to point to his resolution. ''"NOT FOR YOU, YOUR TO HARD TO PLEASE."' So, he's giving up on this person, and going to do things to please himself.
