It's a crime you let it happen to me
Nevermind, I let it happen to you
Out of mind, forget it there's nothing to lose
But my mind and all the things I wanted

Everytime I get it I throw it away
It's a sign, I get it, I wanna stay
By the time I lose it I'm not afraid
I'm alive but I can Surely fake it

How can I believe when this cloud hangs over me
You're the part of me that I don't wanna see

Forget it

There's a place I see you follow me
Just a taste of all that might come to be
I'm alone but holding breath you can breathe
To question every answer counted

Just fade away
Please let me stay
Caught in your way

Forget it

Just fade away
Please let me stay
Caught in your way

It's a crime you let it happen to me
Out of mind, I love it, easy to please
Nevermind, forget it, just memories
On a page inside a spiral notebook

Just fade away
Please let me stay
Caught in your way
I can live forever here

Forget it

How can I believe when this cloud hangs over me
You're a part of me that I don't wanna see

I can live forever here

    I may not understand the lyrics entirely, but there's no reason why not to have theories about it. I'm sure it has to do with a girl related scenario. Like as strong as his passion may be for her, she just keeps rejecting him, but his love for her doesn't change at all.

    I feel like it's talking about a chasing game, because he says "every time i get it i throw it away"

    I think its talking about a women he fell in love that was an accident. He wishes he could let it go... But obviously he couldnt he is stuck in that feeling.

    this reminds me of the situation i'm in now. the girl i like at my school doesn't give me a direct answer when i ask her if she'll go out with me. and i think that she should just give me an answer so i could just forget about her or just accept me for who i am.

    i agree with all of you. for some reason this makes me think of a time when i was in the same situation- that is, there was this chick i liked back when i was living in Anaheim California, and right when i started getting to like her i moved here to Las Vegas with my parents. if i had had my choice i would've stayed back in Anaheim and gotten to know her better, but obviously that wasn't possible.
