I lost my leg like I lost my way
So no loose ends
Nothing to see me down
How are we going to work this out?

Dreams aren't bad, a hit of meth
I love the girl
But God only knows it's
Getting hard to see the sun coming through
I love you...
But what are we going to do?

Picture i'm a dreamer
I'll take you deeper
Down to the sleepy glow
Time is a low..
Don't you know?
What are we going to do?

When you go back
All the second selfless days
You're in love with him
I want to see you again
I love you...
But what are we going to do?

    Maybe it's about having problems. Problems that make being in a relationship hard to do. But instead of being the person who is poisoned by the relationship, like most songs are about, it's in the point of view the person who has the problems. And they don't want to be this way, but they can't help it. All they want is to be loved but they are forced into a selfishness of a kind, because the "problem" I assume, is an addiction of some sort. Sumfink like drugs, which explains " hit of meth." And of course, " I'll take you deeper" that must be an attempt to influence the one they love into joining them, probably as an attempt to keep the loved one from leaving. But in the end, the singer realizes what they've lost because of this problem, but it's too late then.

    I'm not an english native speaker, so i cannot be sure what this song really means, but to me it is a song about people in a relationship who love each other but can't be together anymore due to the differences between them. And so they have to part, although they still love each other, and the girl soon falls for another guy. That is my picture. I had two painful breakups in my life, and on those times i would listen to this songs and feel extreme, breathtaking sadness. This interpretation may be incorrect as it's caused entirely by my experience, as after both of these breakups i still felt love, but also knew it was impossible for us to be together any longer.

    This song reminds me of this girl I met back at middle school. at first I didn't didn't seem to notice her at much but she was in three of my classes at the time. I really first met her after school in the GYM. I just wanted to play badminton with my friends. Well my friend (not my friend anymore) brought his girlfriend. That didn't surprise me to much but I notice that she brought her friends, I didn't put to much thought to it. But I noticed this one girl with long black hair, green eye's, and pink lips. At that moment my face kinda turn red as a cherry. So I Immediately left the GYM telling my friends that I feel sick to walk home. On the walk home I wonder why did that happen? What is wrong with me? Though the biggest question I had was what is her name? It took me a week to realize that I was in love (had a crush) on this girl. I wanted to talk to her some more but I always get nervous. I try to carry out a causal conversation with her but they always seem to have these awkward silences or she would get distracted by someone else. I have always wanted to ask her if she really likes me but, of coarse, I get to nervous. I played this song often around that time. Know these days I am a Sophomore at Columbine High School and I still have a crush (not nearly as bad) on this girl. I still can't ask her the question. I don't even really think she even know that I am alive. Every time I listen to this song, I cry, because it'll always remind me of her.
