So now you're running
It's hard to see clearly
When I make you angry
You're stuck in the past

And now you're screaming
So can you forgive me?
I've treated you badly
But I am still here

Sometimes I wonder
Why I'm still waiting
Sometimes I'm shaking
That's how you make me
Sometimes I question
Why I'm still here
Sometimes I think I am going crazy

Can you help me understand?
And now you wish that you meant something
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
And now you wish that you met someone
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
(Something to somebody else 2x)

You look at me through clouded eyes
I know you see through my lies
See the sky, see the stars
All of this could be ours
Out of sight, out of mind
We've been through this a thousand times
Turn your back and then you make me feel so crazy

Can you help me understand?
And now you wish that you meant something
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
And now you wish that you met someone
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else

You know I would wait forever
Yes, I would wait (I would wait)

You know I would wait forever
Yes, I would wait

And now you wish that you meant something
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else
And now you wish that you met someone
And now you wish that you meant something to somebody else

And I'm the one that should mean something
But still you wish that you meant something to somebody else
Something to somebody else, something to somebody else.

    Now that I've listened to Escape The Fate more, I do like Craig better. He really did take the band in a different direction, and I think they needed that.

    I LOVE THIS SONG!!! I think it means he loves her but doesn't know what to do with that love. And now he knows he's pushing her into wanting someone else

    I think this songs means that how in a relationship things go wrong. The girl is trying to move on and how the guy is desperately wanting her forgiveness

    "So now you're running
    It's hard to see clearly
    When I make you angry
    You're stuck in the past

    And now you're screaming
    So can you forgive me?
    I've treated you badly
    But I am still here"

    Basically, from what I can see, it means that he hurt her and that she shouldn't continue to live in the past, but she just can't forgive him that easily. He will wait for her (but i am still here)

    Then he is questioning himself, why hasn't he moved on when clearly she won't forgive him anymore.

    But, I think as the song transcends into the chorus, the guy is knows he is wrong and that he can't have her back. He knows this by saying (and now you wish you meant something to somebody else) meaning that she wished she gave her heart to somebody who wouldn't break her heart.

    I think this song is about a guy wanting to be more than just friends with a girl that's been heartbroken by some other guy. Well, the guy singing is basically saying, 'its okay if youre scared. i'm scared, too. we'll take care of each other." The lyrics that says, 'and now you wish that you meant something... something to somebody else', is talking about her wanting to mean SOMETHING to the guy that hurt her. The guy singing is having to reassure her that he loves her and 'would wait forever' for her. Then when he sings, 'and I'M THE ONE THAT SHOULD MEAN SOMETHING', he's practically telling her that she should be thinking about him and how much they mean to each other.. not the one guy that broke her heart.

    I love this song. It doesn't matter who the lead singer of this band is because they both have made amazing songs. :))
