Another day I call and never speak
And you would say nothing's changed at all
And I can't feel much hope for anything
If I won't be there to catch you if you fall

[Chorus]
Again
It seems we meet
In the spaces
In between
We always say
It won't be long
But something's always wrong

Another game of putting things aside
As if we'll come back to them sometime
A brace of hope
A pride of innocence
And you would say something has gone wrong

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentThis song is about a man who is trying to get in between another man/woman relationship. The woman insists he will break up her current relationship, but something is always wrong and it never happens.

    > Another day I call and never speak
    > And you would say nothing's changed at all
    > And I can't feel much hope for anything
    > If I won't be there to catch you when you fall

    The nothing's changed at all is the apparent breakup attempt. Nothing has happened. The singer does not feel much hope for a new relationship to begin if he cannot be there for her when she falls (has a falling out in her current relationship).

    > Again
    > It seems we meet
    > In the spaces
    > In between

    They meet when the woman's current boyfriend is not around, hence the spaces of time in between.

    > We always say
    > It won't take long
    > But something's always wrong

    Both claim to want a new relationship together and she promises it won't take long before she breaks up with her current boyfriend, but something is always wrong and nothing ever happens.

    > Another game of putting things aside
    > As if we'll come back to them sometime

    The usual shell game. The woman does not want to break it off with her current boyfriend. Puts aside little situations or problems that should be resolved, but she does not.

    > A brace of hope
    > A pride of innocence
    > And you would say something has gone wrong

    Whenever there is a tiny chance... she still can't get it to go through. She either still has strong feelings for her current boyfriend or she is using and abusing the singer.
