Back and forth we always go, following the light,
Over these broken cobblestones I call my life,
Tell me, who's to blame?
And how many of you feel ashamed,
To say you turned your back in style?

I can't win, it's your body taking over me,
And I can't win, it's your body taking over me.

How did she get in my head?

Movements that shake the earth,
Somehow it feels so perfect,
Surrounded by this madness,
It keeps floating around my head,
Inside, inside, inside, inside.

I can't win, it's your body taking over me,
And I can't win, she's taking over me.

I can't win, it's your body taking over me.

    General Commentfirst thing, this is my favourite song off the album, its just amazing, so much depth to the music,

    as for the meaning, the way i see it, its about jonny's new lady, just how she makes him feel so perfect when they are 'together' and that even with everything going on around him thats not so great, she takes him to a different place thats far away from it all.

    anyway, im probably way off

    General CommentTo me it sounds more like "I can't win" instead of "I can't wait". I could be wrong though; that's just what I hear.

    General CommentThis & taking time for all the wrong things are my favorite favorite FAVORITE on this album, & honestly I have to say that I'm EXTREMELY proud of Jonny because usually when artists go solo, the ones that have been recently in a band in the genre that he was in, don't really sound...good, should I say? But this song is my most played song on my iPod. (:

    I think that this song has to do with him and his new girl &hw she makes him feel?

    General CommentI think it also has a really strong physical and pretty sexual attraction, and it's not a bad thing, but I think it can be puzzling sometimes, the power the opposite sex can have over us, just by being the opposite sex:

    "I can't win, it's your body taking over me.

    How did she get in my head?"

    General CommentOkay, most of this sounds NOTHING like what he sings in the album song, but I've listened to four of his live performances and this is what I ALWAYS hear:

    "Taking over,
    Insanity, she's taking over,
    Make me light this cannonball,
    This light, This light
    This cannonball, she's taking over, make me light....
    And now we can't always be there long, for the line
    Now we can't always be there for the line(?)...."
