I watched you float away on a wave of want and misery
Now, I gotta find you
I watched you float away on whatever caught your eye
Now I gotta find you
'Cause I've got to keep your head above the water
While the current pulls me under

And I will hang my life in the space between the noose and your neck
And I won't let you die just yet

I will love you even when you won't let me
And you will kill me by doing nothing
(Nothing, Nothing)
But I know it's not you, my dear,
I know it's not you
I know it's not you, my dear,
It's the nothing that kills

I can't save you
Control is something out of mine
No, I can't save you
Control is something out of my control

I will love you even when you won't let me
And you will kill me by doing nothing
But I know it's not you, my dear,
I know it's not you
I know it's not you, my dear,
It's the nothing that kills
Nothing

I can't save you, but I will love you
No, I can't save you
I'd like to think that this is love
Lost in second chances without end
And this is romance,
And this is romance

    General CommentI can really relate to this song. It's about someone he loves that is selrf destructive, perhaps physically or emotionally. Because of his great love for the person, he tries to save her and her self-destruction kilkls him inside. Eventually he realizes that he can't save her, but instead of abandoning her, he promises to continue loving her, regardless of his own misery. And this misery, these "second chances without end" are what the world calls "romance".
