Please keep your distance from me I know it's hard to believe
I never wanted to be your only love.
I know the sting of plight hurts, it only makes matters worse
I never said I would be your only love,

Old ships, battle skies, silhouettes of skeletons
News on once the clouds are gone,
These are things that I ignite.
Old news heaven sent if heaven wasn't what it is
If all the stars fell from the storm
Then this is what I've become.

I need a new relief
Dressed as a new belief and then
I can try to be anything or anyone other than who I was
We never hear the dawn, it wake your roommate up
So all between the sheets wishing for anyone other than us.

Please keep your distance from me I know it's hard to believe
I never wanted to be your only love.
I know the sting of plight hurts, it only makes matters worse
I never said I would be your only love.

Long locks, fuzzy dice, summer in the dead of night
Some would say I had to go,
And these were things we never was.
Long cries no response, silhouettes from all my bones
Still we get our heads on wrong,
Cause these are things we never was.

I need a new relief
Disguised as new belief and then
I can try to be anything or anyone other than who I was
And I will let you sing between your mothers sheets
And I will slip through the crack of the records that stack your bedroom
Wall.

Ooooh

Please keep your distance from me I know it's hard to believe
I never wanted to be your only love
I know the sting of plight hurts, it only makes matters worse
I never said I would be your only love
(We need no proper ending that would mean this meant something)

We need no proper ending that would mean this meant something

    I think it means that he was just playing around, but she became very attached in the relationship. He eventually lost interest and left.

    The man cheated and the girl is upset. Lyrics sung by reuss aren't supposed to make any sense when they are looked at because, just like the relationship, it did not mean anything.
