An empty room, I’m empty too
Everything just reminds me of you
So many things that I shouldn’t have missed
The more that I push and the more you resist
It’s easy to say it’s for the best
When you want more, well you leave me with less

I know you're fine, but what do I do?
I know you're fine, but what do I do?

I’m awake and trying
While you’re sleeping like a baby beside him
I’m on the ledge, while you’re so
God damn polite and composed
And I know you see me and you’re making it look so easy
What comes and goes, I go without
I know you’re fine, but what about

(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout
Through the fallout
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
You're the fallout

Well now there’s him and now there’s me
The secrets you give and the secrets you keep
Nevertheless, it’s never your let
It’s more that I give and the less that I get
Don’t tell me to fight, to fight for you
After this long I shouldn’t have to

I know you're fine, but what do I do?
I know you're fine, but what do I do?

I’m awake and trying
While you’re sleeping like a baby beside him
I’m on the ledge, while you’re so
God damn polite and composed
And I know you see me and you’re making it look so easy
What comes and goes, I go without
I know you’re fine, but what about

(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout
Through the fallout
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)

I know you're fine but what if I
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout
Through the fallout

I know you're fine, but what do I do?

    My InterpretationIt's about a guy who's having an affair with a married woman. He's feeling the guilt but she's acting as if everything is just fine. She tells him she might leave her husband if he "fights for her" but he's worried about the fallout. What happens when her husband finds out? He's fraught with guilt while she sleeps like a babe beside him (her husband). Basically he feels like he's stuck in a situation he can't change and he doesn't believe she will leave her husband. Heartache plus helplessness plus guilt = hopeless.
