It was the type of feeling that can't be explained
The way she moved her lips drove me insane
Now I'm left here in the wake of something more.
She made it hard to leave as she stood by the door
In a v-neck T-shirt and nothing more than
A single tear rolling down her cheek, whoa

Don't go away again,
I want to be more than a phone call at 4am.
Seems like every time you come back home
It's just to steal my heart and leave.

Don't go away again,
I want to be more than a story to tell your friends.
Seems like every time you come back home
It's just to make me fall again.

It's getting hard, I know, believe me I feel you
I can't fall asleep knowing you're not home
Is it too much to ask, can't you just pick up the phone?

We've had our share of fights,
I know it's not easy when I'm never home,
I have my own dreams
Like you have your life planned out back home

Don't go away again,
I want to be more than a phone call at 4am.
Seems like every time you come back home
It's just to steal my heart and leave.

Don't go away again,
I want to be more than a story to tell your friends.
Seems like every time you come back home
It's just to make me fall again.

And I, will always stand between us
And hold you so high
Just enough to watch you fade
Tonight you'll cry yourself asleep
As I lay awake in some far off city
Pretend you're lying next to me
Eyes wide open dreaming of you

Don't go away again,
I want to be more than a phone call at 4am.
Seems like every time you come back home
It's just to steal my heart and leave.

Don't go away again,
I want to be more than a phone call at 4am.
Seems like every time you come back home
It's just to steal my heart and leave.

Don't go away again,
I want to be more than a story to tell your friends.
Seems like every time you come back home
It's just to make me fall again.

    So, I think this song means that like when you like someone a lot, but they like someone else. Then, they only want you when they need a rebound to help them get over someone else. After that, they're done with you. I've had experience with girls and guys like that. Not fun.
