You don't know a thing about me
Is there something that you should know?
I can tell you what you want to hear
Let you inhibitions just go
No you don't know what you will give up
You don't know what you want
It may take you years to find out

You don't know what you need
It's something that may never come to you
Trust is something that comes easy
When you've never been a victim
Lies and promises and words are said
It's your decision to accept them

    General CommentUltimately, I think the message of the song is to go for what you want, consequences be damned.

    The line "You don't know what you will give up" puzzled me for years.

    But I've finally come to realize, in my interpretation at least, that Trever is saying "You don't know what you will give up by NOT taking risks."

    "You don't know what you want
    It may take you years to find out
    You don't know what you need
    Something that may never come to you"

    These lines also puzzled me, but here's what I think. Often in life, people will get a kind of writer's block where they are too afraid to commit to anything, because they are scared that they are making the wrong decision. "Should I really take this job?" "Should I really date this girl/guy?" "Is this the right college major for me?"

    Ultimately I think Trever is saying that these questions only get answered AFTER you take the risk and commit yourself. You WON'T know if she's the right girl for you until you spend some time with her. You WON'T know if it's TRULY the right job for you until you commit to it for a while. "It may take you years to find out" if it's really what you want. And it's something you may never know if you choose to stay passive and take no risks.

    General CommentAfter years, I hope you'll let me be there, so you won't realize I was what you wanted. No regrets, baby.
    L.O.C: 'I can tell you what you want to hear.'
