I couldn't figure why you couldn't give me what everybody needs
I shouldn't let you kick me when I'm down, my baby
Find out everybody knows that you've been using me
I'm surprised you let me stay around you
One day I'm gonna lift the cover and look inside your heart
We gotta level before we go and tear this love apart

There's no fight you can't fight
This battle of love with me, you win again
So little time, we do nothing but compete
There's no life on earth
No other could see me through, you win again
Some never try, but if anybody can, we can
And I'll be (I'll be), I'll be (I'll be) following you

Oh, girl, oh, girl

Oh baby, I shake you from now on
I'm gonna break down your defenses, one by one
I'm gonna hit you from all sides, lay your fortress open wide
Nobody stops this body from taking you
You better beware, I swear
I'm gonna be there one day when you fall
I could never let you cast aside the greatest love of all

There's no fight you can't fight
This battle of love with me, you win again
So little time, we do nothing but compete
There's no life on earth
No other could see me through, you win again
Some never try, but if anybody can, we can
And I'll be (I'll be), I'll be (I'll be) following you

Oh, girl

You win again
So little time, we do nothing but compete
There's no life on earth
No other could see me through, you win again
Some never try, but if anybody can, we can
And I'll be (I'll be), I'll be (I'll be) following you
Oh, oh, girl

You win again
So little time, we do nothing but compete
There's no life on earth
No other could see me through, you win again
Some never try, but if anybody can, we can
There's no fight you can't fight
This battle of love with me, you win again
So little time, we do nothing but compete
There's no life on earth
No other could see me through, you win again
Some never try, but if anybody can, we can
There's no fight you can't fight
This battle of love with me, you win again

    To me, this song is about his girlfriend. They both love each other, but she's afraid of being too close to anyone. I think the "You couldn't give me what everybody needs" part refers to sex. So, he feels like he's being used as a comodity. From my previous relationship, I learned that the formerly abused will sometimes have an irrational fear of getting too close to someone (even if they love and respect the person). He believes in the relationship and wants to do what it takes to make it work. But she is probably just not ready for a serious relationship yet.

    I feel for the songwriter. I'm going through the same thing right now.

    She doesn't/didn't love him the way he did her.

    But he'll be there when she does, when she realises what she's lost. He'll be there to explore the love and he cant let her throw it away. Gorgeous song

    It's about going after a girl who does not feel the same way about him but he's not giving up until he wins her heart. Corny aint it?

    "One day Im gonna lift the cover and look inside your...Oh baby, I shake you from now on. I'm gonna break down your defenses one by one. Im gonna hit you from all sides lay your fortress open wide. Nobody stops this body from taking you. You better beware, I swear, Im gonna be there one day when you fall." I love this song, but I can't get the idea out of my head that it means the guy is having problems with his girl so he is threatening to rape her to get her to love him. Kinda puts a damper on my good feelings in my opinion
