I remember your mouth,
what it said,
how it kissed me,
And how it was burdened,
not like anyone else
And I remember your feet,
I saw them dance to the new beat
And When I asked you to,
they walked a mile in my shoes.

We were best friends,
more than best friends
let's do it all again

I remember your hands,
I heard them clap for my own chord
Felt them pull me back,
As I tried to break loose
And I remember your eyes,
How they saw right through me
And how that made me feel..
so sick and bored with myself.

we were best friends,
more than best friends
let's do it all again
we were best friends
more than best friends
lets do it all again

now I know that I loved her
and I wish I had told her
but i was too slow it was already over
yeah i was too slow it was already over.

    General Commenti think the first verse is just describing the friendship generally; no matter what, the girl (his friend) always could figure out exactly how he felt (found a new beat, in his shoes). when she held him back ,its not that she wasnt letting him leave or something. its just everytime he was with her, she held him to her without her even knowing she was doing it. in the last verse, he's realized they arent that close anymore, and he was too late to realize he was in love with her.

    i think the "too little again" part means almost, he fell in and out of love with her. denial, maybe? best friends was enough, he lied to himself, then realized he needed more.

    anyway, great song. too bad for me, really, i can totally relate to this song from the guy's point of view lol

    General CommentAw, so sad and sweet! I love The Perishers! I find the bit where he says: "And how that made me feel..
    so sick and bored with myself." especially sad and heartfelt. All of their songs have quality, like they all took a lot of time and effort to make. Kudos to The Perishers!!

    General Commentthink some of the lyrics here are wrong in a few places
    - i remember your mouth, what it said, how it kissed me
    - let's do it all again (not 'it's too little again')

    General CommentI think, somehow, he has always been in love with his best friend, but was afraid to let himself go ith her, because it is always hard for anyone to take that step forward .. and he thought he was satisfied with her friendship ..

    I think he also took her for granted, she has always been there for him being supportive and caring .. till the day he lost her to another man, and now he is full of regret ..

    but it is funny how a lot of their songs talk about love between bestfriends : come out of the shade, best friends, Sway..
