Fall into you
Is all I seem to do
When I hit the bottle
'cause I'm afraid to be alone
Tear us in two
Is all it seems to do
As the anger fades
This house is no longer a home

Don't give up on the dream
Don't give up on the wanting
And everything that's true
Don't give up on the dream
Don't give up on the wanting

Because I want you to
Because I want you to
Because I want you to
Because I want you
Because I want you

Stumble into you
Is all I ever do
My memory's hazy
And I'm afraid to be alone
Tear us in two
Is all it's gonna do
As the headache fades
This house is no longer a home

Don't give up on the dream
Don't give up on the wanting
And everything that's true
Don't give up on the dream
Don't give up on the wanting

Because I want you to
Because I want you to
Because I want you to
Because I want you
Because I want you

Because I want you to
Because I want you to
Because I want you
Because I want you

Fall into you
Is all I ever do
When I hit the bottle
'cause I'm afraid to be alone
Tear us in two
Tear us in two
Tear us in two

Because I want you to
Because I want you to
Because I want you
Because I want you

    My InterpretationThis song is about a protagonist who comes to the understanding that he can't go on the way he does.

    He's depressed and he drinks ('When I hit the bottle 'cause I'm afraid to be alone'), but this behavior threatens the only good thing he has: his love.

    He understands that those two things make their relationship suffer and what once was good has turned into a place where they can't feel happy anymore ('This house is no longer a home').

    He begs his love not to give up on the dream they once had because his love for her is still true. But at the same time, he knows it can't go on like this and he's dragging her down with him.

    That's why he's telling her that he wants her to give up (tear us in two). She has to make the decision because he can't. He doesn't want her to suffer anymore.

    But at the same time as he tells her this, he takes it back and confesses that he still loves her 'Because I want you'. So the protagonist is stuck right in his crisis moment: Shall he let her go and let her find her happiness but be alone OR shall he make her stay with him to not be alone, but be responsible for making her suffer.
