What if I can't be all that you need me to be?
We've got a good thing going, we have some promises to keep.
But my addiction, it can be such a detriment.
Please believe in this my dear, I am more than penitent.

What if everything's just the way that it will be?
Could it be that I am meant to cause you all this grief?
My warship's a-lying off the coast of your delicate heart,
And my aim is steady and true as it's been right from the start.

There's a degree of difficulty in dealing with me.
From my haunted past comes a daunting task of living through memories.
If we could just hang a mirror on the bedroom wall
Stare into the past, and forget it all...

So when we leave it'll be a quick midnight escape.
We'll disconnect ourselves from all of yesterday.
I'll dig for water and fashion our very own wishing well.
Then, we'll throw our coins down hoping to rid us of this little hell.

There's a degree of difficulty in dealing with me.
From my haunted past comes a daunting task of living through memories.
If we could just hang a mirror on the bedroom wall
Stare into the past, and forget it all...

Will we get out of this little hell?
Will we get out of this little hell?
Will we get out of this little hell?
Will we get out of this little hell?

    Seems to me like he loves this girl, but he doesn't feel confident in that he's good for her. He's going through struggles in his life that may interfere with the relationship. He may have even done something to damage the love she has for him. But in the end, he asks the question... "will we get out of the little hell? " guess we'll find out..

    That love is hard and the past gets in the way
    and when the love is over your stuck in that past wishing to come back
    because you know you are haunted by the very thing that she/he made u and now they are gone you want to wish for her back
    because ur weekness drove her away
    cause you caused all this grief

    This song is about haunting past memories and how its affecting his present relationship. He knows that he has to let all the bad memories frm the past go in order to move forward but its easier sad than done. It needs to happen or hes gong to ruin his relationship. He knows hes difficult to deal w. And he acknowledges that hes been dweling on the past but bottom line get over it and move forward!

    His memories are haunting him and he fears it will intercept with the day he decides to love someone. He's living in the past. He's letting it take over him and possibly his future. He's scared, but aren't we all?
