Well I don't want to see you waiting
I've already gone too far away
I still can't keep the day from ending
No more messed up reasons for me to stay

Well this is not for real
Afraid to feel
I just hit the floor
Don't ask for more
I'm wasting my time
I'm wasting my time
You can't stop the feeling
And there's no reason
Let's make the call
And take it all again
Woah again

Months went by with us pretending
When did our light turn from green to red
I took a chance and left you standing
Lost the will to do this once again

Well this is not for real
Afraid to feel
I just hit the floor
Don't ask for more
I'm wasting my time
I'm wasting my time
You can't stop the feeling
And there's no reason
Let's make the call
And take it all
I'm wasting my time
I'm wasting my time again
Woah again

See you waiting
Lonesome, lonely
See you waiting
I see you waiting

Well this is not for real
Afraid to feel
I just hit the floor
Don't ask for more
I'm wasting my time
I'm wasting my time
You can't stop the feeling
And there's no reason
Let's make the call
And take it all
I'm wasting my time
I'm wasting my ...
Well this is not for real
Afraid to feel
I just hit the floor
Don't ask for more
I'm wasting my time
I'm wasting my time
You can't stop the feeling
And there's no reason
Let's make the call
And take it all again
Woah again

    "this is not for real, afraid to feel". Means he's been through too many messed up relationships, his fear keeps him from being able to feel it anymore. "i see you waiting, look so lonely". She won't leave, even though she knows just as well as he does that it's over. She'll sit around and wait until he forces her to leave. And he see's her doing this, and see's how lonely she is. I'm going through this now, I'm waiting, so lonely, and he knows it.

    Tootall has it mostly right, except he admits that he loves her but needed distance (they possibly both did), but stayed away so long "months went by with us pretending" that there seemed like no point in going back "when did our light turn from green to red". Though when he says they should "make the call and take it all again", he admits that they're one convicted attempt at speaking to each other from saving everything they had lost.

    Logically, to pursue the relationship makes no sense based on implied social relations and contracts. Unfortunately, people are not always satisfied with what they settle with in life. Greed, desire. These things are like chains keeping us tied to our fears. The lyrics imply he is afraid to just fully trust and put himself out there. That's why this song is cool, because in this alternate pretend make believe wonderland constructed through art, he can express this alter ego persona of his. Xd.
