The roads are wrapped around you waist
They lead me place to place
I take trips from hip to hip
In fact I've made a career out of it
I've always thought the left was your strongest side
But when is comes to you now I can't decide
It's only a matter of time

I need the product of you fears in the form of tears
It's the only way I can survive
It breaks my heart to see you crying baby
It's the only way I'll stay alive
Green eyes, blue skies
Natural disasters when she cries
Green eyes, they're mine
It's only a matter of time

Like the climate you never now what weather you get
No denying you're the habit that I can't quit
It's only a matter of mind

I need the product of you fears in the form of tears
It's the only way I can survive
It breaks my heart to see you crying baby
It's the only way I'll stay alive
Green eyes, blue skies
Natural disasters when she cries
Green eyes, they're mine
It's only a matter of time
It's only a matter of time

Rotating, I'm shaking
I hope you turn around in time
Tides changing, I'm waiting
But you and I are one of a kind
I've been to both hemispheres over my short years
I still can't pick my favorite place
The contour of you lips
They match the continents
And I still love the way that you taste

I need the product of you fears in the form of tears
It's the only way I can survive
It breaks my heart to see you crying baby
It's the only way I'll stay alive
Green eyes, blue skies
Natural disasters when she cries
Green eyes, they're mine
It's only a matter of time
It's only a matter of time

    What I get from this song is that the singer is in love with a girl and they've had a lot of issues like cheating and break ups but he still loves her and wants to be with her. And he thinks he will be eventually "Green eyes, they're mine, it's only a matter of time..."

    It's a love-hate relationship. They love eachother, but they can't stand each other at the same time. He likes to make her cry, but it also 'breaks his heart' to see her crying. And most likely something of the same for her.

    He is in love with her. It isn't working out, perfectly, or in fact, at all. He can't help but hurt her and hurt himself that way too. Although it is rough at the present time, he still has faith that it will work out in the future (it's only a matter of time). The beginning of the song, saying "the roads are wrapped around your waist" means that no matter where he goes in his life, he keeps coming back to her. She IS his world. Natural disasters when she cries... her being that upset is THAT terrible to him. He doesn't know if it's good for him, her being the habit that he can't quit, but then again its the only way he can stay alive. He will wait around however long it takes, because them together is the only way he can see life existing.

    Oh, and i think the green eyes part is self explanatory.
