"Do You Wanna?" as written by and Joshua Ryan Radin....
I've been down this road before
I walk out the door
Leave you on the floor
Sometimes you run and hide
Your foolish prides
What keeps me from giving you more

So the best thing
I can give to you
Is for me to go
Leave you alone
Cause you got growin' up to do

Some day I'll return when it's time
For payment in kind
The church bells'll chime
You'll stand before me surrounded by lights
Dressed in white
You'll throw flowers in the air
This night


Looks like the rain's pouring down on me
It's drowning me now
All I want is to come back home
This old corduroy coat
It's not keeping me dry
But I can't think of what else to try

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commentthe song is about a guy who is friends with a girl, but the girl is into some other guy who keeps breaking her heart. And she is trying to get over him and move on but she can't. Meanwhile her friend see's what going on, and tries to comfort her and help her through the tough time because he cares about her so much. He wants her to be his, but at the moment, all he wants is for her to be ok. He's a good guy and it breaks his heart when the girl is sad, and so he just wants her to be happy. "you wanna retrive your high on the phone/ but when you hang up all I wanna do is help you to..." As long as she's happy with the other guy, the friend is happy, but he'll always be there to help her because he loves her.

    "not realizing that you're home
    won't you come home and
    how can I show you that you're done
    you're on your knees
    picking up the pieces from your past
    but there's nothing more to gather
    holding on to moments that won't last
    or would you rather end it all
    do you wanna? "

    He's saying that he is her home. He is everything she could want. Her past was heartache, and she can't get over it. But there's nothing left to pick up. She's holding on to something that doesn't matter. So why not stop being sad and start making new memories that will matter, at "home"?

    it's incredible because everything i just wrote is what i'm going through RIGHT now. And i hate it, because i love the girl so damn much.
