And if you could make up
For every single time you lied
I'd probably whisper this
Hello, goodbye
And so it begins again
Harder each and every time
I start to reminisce
I never seem to ever find

Someone I can trust
Someone I believe
Someone who will never try
To bring me to my knees
Someday I will find again
Someone just like me
Someone who will take the time
In understanding me

And if I could make up
For every single tear you cried
I'd probably never miss
Your hand in mine
I never could understand
Mistakes I repeat again
I've been through this so many times
Never seem to ever find

I've stopped searching
To take my time and completely clear my head
I believe it was meant to be
And I feel it's time to go

And never leave
And never scream
Someone who believes
Never lies to me
And would die for me

    Basically the girls this guy gets in relationships with never seem to be the right ones. They don't fully undrstand him and mostly fuck him over! He just wants to find someone to clique with. Best line "I never could understand/Mistakes I repeat again." My thoughts on that line, maybe they're just the ones making the mistakes and he isn't.

    Totally agreeing with everyone else, he always ends up in the same place and it's a vicious cycle I got to experience, been single for the past 5 years cause of it! Most amazing lyrics ever, my top song on zune! :P I have found that someone the way he wants to in the song, just too bad I was too messed up from these trust issues from past relationships to let him know how I feel and now he wants someone else and even admitted to liking me before :( sucks...

    Great song... Pretty easy one to figure out. But God do i totally understand what he is saying. Spend two years on a girl just for her to walk up and calmly say i dont really love you anymore, but can we still be friends... Yah... SOme one needs to come save me.

    Yea, this is a great inspirational song because he's not really giving up on finding the right one just for him. He believes that someday somone that's right just for him will be with him. It's also pretty catchy too :).

    Sounds like he feels the futility of relationships, but is trapped in the cycle; then catches himself (And I've stopped searching//To take my time//And completely clear my head), but by the end of the song, is back in the cycle. It almost seems like saying "That's it, fuck the cycle, I'm staying single," is actually part of the cycle.

    He's looking for his soul mate, someone that except everything that makes him who he is, who understands how he feels. I'm searching too dude. "I feel it's time to go" to find "Someone I can trust...Someone just like me" Someone who never leaves "Never lies to me... And would die for me"

    I love the lyrics in this song. "And if you could make up For every single time you lied I'd probably whisper this Hello, goodbye" Those are such awesome lyrics right there. I think "hello, goodbye" is his way of saying "great you've tried to justify your actions and you're trying to undo you're wrongs. I accept you're sorry, but it still won't make up for every lie you've told. I agree that he's looking for his soulmate and is searching for someone who will accept him for who he is.

Taylor Swift
I believe this is another amazingly on point and nuanced commentary on the insanity that follows emotionally abusive relationships. The abuser has no anxieties, no emotional pain, or salience/memory for that matter, so the survivor appears to be the crazy one, obsessed with the abuse and that buzzword that seems to ignite arguments about diagnosing people without a degree, etc. funny how you say the words domestic violence, abuse, abuse survivor and boom the subject changes. Anyways, I especially relate to her midnights becoming afternoons, complex PTSD often leads to this phenomenon, whether due to purposeful sleep deprivation by the abuser, or just hyper vigilance associated with the PTSD, along with the fear of facing people, especially your loved ones, who Never actually understand, even if they try, because all they see is you, on fire, screaming about the arsonist that no one ever sees, and who has been spreading lies about your alleged mental instability, deceptive personality, etc. the whole time. While the last thing survivors need is more blame, our society supports a narrative that blames the objectively innocent party because the blatantly guilty party has spent their entire lives fabricating a persona and we’re just being human, and human psychology is quite counterintuitive especially in the context of trauma. Look at Amber Heard. Vilified and not believed, regardless of what any abuse survivor could recognize as a fellow survivor instantly. But Johnny depp is a malignant narcissist, a man, and wealthy as all get out. It’s sick.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
