And you neglected I called you out don't please
I said we're stronger than this now
You resurrected mistakes years past it seemed
And they exist to still haunt you

And still you feel like the loneliness
Is better replaced by this
I don't believe it this way
And I can see the fear in your eyes
I've seen it materialize
Growing stronger each day

I could see it as you turned to stone
Still clearly I can hear you say
Don't leave, don't give up on me
Two weeks and you ran away
I remember don't lie to me
You couldn't see that it was not that way
Swear I never gave up on you

I wanted nothing but for that trust again
And brick by brick you would take it
You feared of phantoms and none exist but you
You still saw fit to destroy it

And still you feel like the loneliness
Is better replaced by this
I don't believe it this way
And I can see the fear in your eyes
I've seen it materialize
Growing stronger each day

I could see it as you turned to stone
Still clearly I can hear you say
Don't leave don't give up on me
Two weeks and you ran away
I remember don't lie to me
You couldn't see that it was not that way
Swear I never gave up on you

And you neglected I called you out don't please
I said we're stronger than this now
You feared of phantoms and none exist but you
You still saw fit to destroy it

And I can see the fear in your eyes
I've seen it materialize
Growing stronger each day

I could see it as you turned to stone
Still clearly I can hear you say
Don't leave don't give up on me
Two weeks you ran away

I could see it as you turned to stone
Still clearly I can hear you say
Don't leave don't give up on me
Two weeks and you ran away
I remember don't lie to me
You couldn't see that it was not that way
Swear I never gave up on you

I could see it as you turned to stone
Still clearly I can hear you say
Don't leave don't give up on me
Two weeks and you ran away
I remember don't lie to me
You couldn't see that it was not that way
Swear I never gave up on you

    The song is a story that unfolds like this to me:
    Two weeks ago she left, now she is back. They start fighting and she brings up the past (either his mistake or another mans). He claims that they should be past all this now. She continues to shut him out with a cold heart due to her fear of their relationship and yet she pleas for him to stick around since she loves him. He hopes that she can start trusting him by building their trust slowly. She still is caught up in her phantoms and looks for an escape. The man clearly in shock says 'do not lie to me I know what we had was not like it was before, we have something special and I will not give up on you.' In the end it sounds like her shoulder is still turned to him and he is still fighting for her.

    I would like to add that all the other comments are valid as well I just think this is the literal translation of the lyrics.

    To me, it sounds like the two are already a couple. The guy had done something in the past to hurt her. Even though he feels their relationship is stronger than it was then, she still fears he will do it again. I think he left her for whatever reason, and she asked him, "don't leave, don't give up on me" but he left for two weeks and came back. She asked him not to lie, probably about what happened during those two weeks, but he tried to explain it wasn't that way. He wants to gain her trust back, but she is still thinking about the past and what he did, and can not let it go

    My favorite song, I feel it closely relates a situation I just went through. She is insecure about herself or something from her past making the relationship complicated. For whatever reason, they broke up. I'm guessing he left her because he needed his space or needed to tke care of something. She felt abandoned and neglected (she thinks he gave up on her and that there are other girls or "phantoms" ). He left and did his thing then comes back or tries to come back but she is now full of resentment and mistrust. She want's to be with him but is scared of being left again. So now she can't or doesn't want to tell him. He can tell just by looking at her that it's not the same as before and that now she seems to want "her" space. She tells him nothing and just leaves acting as if she never had cared at all and it doesn't affect her. Or else he left for two weeks, came back and she felt neglected and just blew him off.? Food for thought.

    you have your chance with a girl but she wants to wait it out but then backs out for someone else and u gave her your heart and trust telling her how you feel and she took it all away from you leaving you with nothing but yet you can still feel her inside of you and you cannot let go and you know that she was scared, petrified. but when you talked every word meant the world and you would never forget and never will and the sorrow seems to be killing you but you find your own way to get around it and live your life to the fullest with or without her.

    I believe its is about a couple in a realationship and one of them has issues with addiction (to drugs and/or alcohol) one keeps telling the other one how they want to be clean and sobor but addiction keeps pulling them back in, while the other sits there and watches. I believe anyone that has been in a relationship like that after reading the lyrics will see it from this point of view too.
