Touch me.
You'd never touch me.
You'd never.
Your silver smile has once again controlled me.

No need to put this on me.
You are the one and only thing I need.
Trust in me, i'll show you things you've never seen.

This town never felt the same.
Since the sun went down I don't feel so safe.
Your face is such a mess.
And the wine on your breath shows gracelessness.
So deceiving.

Let it go your hands are right in front of me.
Cracking up and, the sound of the new year saviour.
Pen on paper.
(This is what I get)

No need to do this baby.
The sex it drives me crazy.
You begin to break me in.
Tell me what you need.

So you throw it away.
All this fucking dismay
And now you're back in your skin.

There will be terror at the sight of this...
She only knows how to stay awake in here.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about how he is on and off with this girl that he loves. She's pulled him in again, and he couldn't resist it, because she is all he needs.
    But she lets herself go, she drinks, doesn't show respect to herself, but she just needs to let it all go.
    And writing is helping her let it all go, and becomes the new saviour, saving herself from herself.
    He wants to do all he can and help her, but she just goes back to who she was, "back in her skin."

    General CommentHe's in love with a girl... She thinks shes not good enough for him? I'm not good with analysing lyrics. Good song though. I love the way Matthew sings it. I just wish there was a third verse.

    General Commentthis song doesnt really make sense to me. perhaps it has no depth to it. just words. but it sounds great nevertheless.

    General CommentThis song Hmm...
    it's awesome and i agree with everybody else the way matheww sings it is fucking fantastic.

    i think it's about him been in-love with a girl, who in a way is quite manipulative
    "your smile has once again controlled me"

    i think she leads him on
    and he knows it
    but he can't help but love her
    "no need to do this baby
    the sex it drives me crazy
    you begin to break me in
    ...tell me what you need!!!!"

    he's a fool
    and he's in-love...

    General CommentAbout some crazy alcho chick? I dunno.

    This song is my fav getaway plan song. Reminds me of a guy I wish I knew better.
    The screaming at the start is just pure brilliance

    General Commenti believe it's 'you don't need to break me in,
    just tell me what you need.'

    i've seen them five times,
    and i touched matt.
