I'm not the one that you want, I'll only let you down.
And I'm pretty sure that you've caught on.
And you can say that 'Oh, I'm just feeling sorry for my...'

I think it's every time I walk into a room
a silence so sudden that I seem to hear it
(Smiles turn to frowns)
Contact saying that you are the rain on their parade.

And how long could you hang on to a word?
Tell me, how long could you hang on to a word?

I'm not the one that you want, I'll only let you down.
And I'm pretty sure that you've caught on.
And you can say that 'Oh, I'm just feeling sorry for myself'

Or maybe it's all eyes on him
in love with ego and intention
the eyes that are just begging me for more.
This is gone and I can see it
your head is full of words,
full of words that don't mean anything.

And how long could you hang on to a word?
Tell me, how long could you hang on to a word?

I'm not the one that you want, I'll always let you down.
And I'm pretty sure that you've caught on.
And you can say that 'Oh, I'm just feeling sorry for myself'

I'm not the one that you want, I'll always let you down.
And I'm pretty sure that you've caught on.
And you can say that 'Oh, I'm just feeling sorry for myself'
(If that's how you feel, then what's there to do?
I'll keep this feeling in my heart
but when you look in my eyes, you will know the truth.)

    When he says "i'm not the one that you want, i'll only let you down. And i'm pretty sure that you've caught on. " that part is pretty clear he's saying that she deserves better cause he will let her down and he's sure she knows. "i think it's every time i walk into a room
    a silence so sudden that i seem to hear it" basically is describing the akwardness when he comes around her.

    "and how long could you hang on to a word? Tell me, how long could you hang on to a word? "
    meaning he probably lied and told her he loved her and didn't mean it so he's asking how long will she hold on to the beautiful things he said to her

    "or maybe it's all eyes on him
    in love with ego and intention
    the eyes that are just begging me for more. This is gone and i can see it
    your head is full of words,
    full of words that don't mean anything. "
    is kind of the same as the last part... Her eyes is begging for more from him
    but his love for her is gone and her head is full of words of him saying things like "i love you" "we'll be together forever" ect things like that when people tell each other when the love is new.

    Basically it's hurting him to leave this girl that is still holding on to him is the summary.

    I think it's basically saying that Craig had a relationship with a girl, but chose to break up with her, saying he didn't love her, or wasn't good enough or something. And the girl kinda hung on or something. And it turns out that Craig was really lying about not loving her

    He doesn't want to be with the girl that likes him because he's afraid he may mess up by letting her down on a promise he may make

    To me, intensity in ten cities is pretty clear. It's about explaining to someone that you feel less for them than what they feel for you.

    This is such an intense song. Its like hes hurting and wants to be with this girl but knows right now he cant and wonders if she will ever know the true meaning why hes not the one she wants he wants so badly to pull away from her and his angwish but for some reason cant its like hes shouting out to her telling her how he wants her to view how he feels. I love this song
