Cold hands, white light
Yellow lamps on blackened skies
Duffel hoods and deep brown eyes
I sing you a song that I think you'll like

And we'll walk to places we always go
A million faces I don't know
I say the words you'd always hope
Set our hearts on racing even though...

[Chorus:]
I know what you told me
I know that it's all over
And I know I can't keep calling
Every time I run (yeah)
I keep on falling on you
I know what you told me
I know that it's all over
And I know I can't keep calling
Just every time I run (yeah)
I keep on falling on you


Oh the way you stand, on the way you sway
The way your hair curls in the rain
The little lines around your face
Or winter nights you'd come and stay

Or the way you hit me when you wanna fight
The way I yearn, the way I cry
The way our love rose with the tides
But we know we'll make up every time

[Chorus:]
I know what you told me
I know that it's all over
And I know I can't keep calling
Every time I run (yeah)
I keep on falling on you
I know what you told me
I know that it's all over
And I know I can't keep calling
Just every time I run (yeah)
I keep on falling on you

[Bridge:]
Oh you bring me all the things I need
I follow the rain to the roaring sea
Oh you bring me all the things I need

[Chorus:]
I know what you told me
I know that it's all over
And I know I can't keep calling
Just every time I run
I keep on falling
I know what you told me
I know that it's all over
And I know I can't keep calling
Just every time I run
I keep on falling

And I know what you told me
I know that it's all over
And I know I can't keep calling
Every time I run, yeah
I keep on falling

I know what you told me
I know that it's all over
And I know I can't keep calling
Just every time I run, yeah
I keep on falling on you

    General CommentThere are some mistakes in these lyrics:

    On the way I stand
    On the way I sway
    The way your hair coats in the rain
    The little lines that write on your face
    On the winter nights, you come and stay
    Oh the way you hit me when you wanna fight
    The way I yawn, the way I cry
    The way I love rose with the ties
    But we know it won't make up every time



    Should be:

    On the way you stand, on the way you sway
    The way your hair curls in the rain
    The little lines write your face
    So do winter nights you'd come and stay

    Or the way you hit me when you wanna fight
    The way i yearn, the way i cry
    The way i love rose with the tides
    But we know we'll make up every time

    My Opinionin my opinion this song is about the end of a relationship. the person is in denial and it is hard for him to admit that its over. "i know what you told me i know that its all over" maybe she told him that she cheated on him or maybe she just doesn't feel the way they should feel in a loving relationship. he probably wishes he never heard her say those things, he wishes things could stay the same.
