You seem too good
Too good to be true
You're holding me stronger
Stronger than I'm used to

Don't go out with the boys tonight
I won't sleep a wink
Wondering what you're doing
Don't go out with the girls tonight
I will turn to drink
Wondering what you're proving

You seem too good
Too good to be true
I'm loving you longer
Longer that I'm used to

Don't go out with the boys tonight
I won't sleep a wink
Wondering what you're doing
Don't go out with the girls tonight
I will turn to drink
Wondering what you're proving

Tug of war
Sweet as sin
I let go
I fell in
Feel the pull
Call your name
I'm alone
Once again

Tug of war
Sweet as sin
I let go
I fell in
Feel the pull
Call your name
I'm alone
Once again

You seem too
You seem too good
Too good to be true
You're holding me stronger
Stronger than I'm used to

Don't go out with the boys tonight
I won't sleep a wink
Wondering what you're doing
Don't go out with the girls tonight
I will turn to drink
Wondering what you're doing

Tug of war
Sweet as sin
I let go
I fell in
Feel the pull
Call your name
I'm alone
Once again

Tug of war
Sweet as sin
I let go
I fell in
Feel the pull
Call your name
I'm alone
Once again

Tug of war
Feel the pull
Tug of war
Feel the pull

    It is about wanting someone to spend the whole day with you. It's not really about jealousy. It's about wishing that person to be only yours.

    It means that no matter how loyal he seems to be, he's still really hard to trust... When hes not with her,maybe she feels this way cuz shes been played before and doesnt wanna get hurt from him... Again?

    It's the exact meaning of the relationship with my bf. I always wonder what he's doing when i'm not with him and i worry that he might get with somebody. So the "tug of war" is him being the rope and me and friends (guys and girls) fighting for his attention

    I think it means that although she trusts him she doesn't trust what he does when he's out and that if he would spend time with her it would comfort her
