I wind you up
then I wait for the melancholy
I give you up
while you sit here in all your glory
I never thought you would
I never knew you could
but now you're gone
and I don't think I care
I sold your love
down the river for a bow and arrow
euphoria has just been here
and she's looking terrible
I never sung this low
it's better if you go
I know you're mine
I sit here and want you to try
to love me like a monster
one last time
control me like a father
one last time
stay with me till I'm stronger
one last
bound to kick me when I'm down
don't kick me when I'm down
I never thought you would
I never understood
and that's why I'm weak and I want you to try
to make me an example
one last time
to drag me through the cycle
one last time
to make me a disciple
one last
round, will get me to the ground
you'll get me on the ground
(oh yeah)
I'll see you around
yeah, I'll see you around
one last time
and I'll see you around
yeah, I'll see you around
(na na na na na na na......)

    General CommentFreakin great song! I think this song is just about being with someone who is not right for you and treats you badly and yet you want to give them one more chance.

    General CommentThese lyrics are definitely wrong. It's "I never SUNK this low" not "sung this low" and also it's "one last ROUND to kick me when i'm down" not "one last bound" which doesn't even make sense.

    General CommentDefinitely sounds like a rough relationship, in which the singer wants it to work out, regardless of the pain and hurt that occurs. In fact, she kind of sounds like she wants to change, as if that will make things better, even if it means changing what she stands for...

    General CommentI thought the lyric was:
    "When you're nearby
    I see you and want you to try"
    "I know you're mine
    I sit here and want you to try"

    General CommentThis song is about loving someone who is married to another person, so after the great wind up, the melancholy sits in because there is such guilt, and they have to leave on tour to their glory and its killing you. But you hope they come back again, because even though it hurts you need them one more time.
