Don't leave yet
it's still early and I haven't even said a word
and I'm hoping that I might upset you by saying what I want to
'cause it's not like you don't know who I've fallen for
but it's in my head and that's where you can't see it
and I thought that maybe if I had to bite the tips of my fingers I could stumble over words
and tell you just how far before I hit the ground
and I'm the type to think of all the wrong things to say
and I will shut myself up and I'll never come out-
I'll close all my doors and only show you the black spots where my eyes once were-
I can say this-
I can collect myself deep down and then come out punching
and I'll scream out loud.

    General Commenti think this is a song about how he has trouble telling someone how he feels. he knows he has feelings for the person, but keeps them in his head because he can't tell her, at the end of the song hes telling himself that he can tell her, and that he will. i dunno how to explain but this is like just how i feel sometimes, its one of my favourite saves the day song

    General Commentwhat freakish said. the song's pretty self explanatory and straight forward, he can't bring himself to tell the girl what he feels about her. and i guess it drives him crazy keeping it to himself, not being able to let it out.

    General Commentyes the song is self explanitory but i would like to point out how phat the rhythm guitar is to this song. I learned to respect power chords much more because of Saves the day... and this song in particular. if youre a guitar player... just learn this song and sing to it... it'll make your day.
