I was walking with your left hand in my back pocket
And I stared at the sky while you kissed me
And you were running away- away from everything
And I stayed behind so you'd miss me

And while these words may sound so sweet
I could care less about you, care less about you
And how I love the sound of you walking away
And I can see clearer and I'm getting closer
To finding out just who I am without you in the way
So hold me
But only
For today

Despite my best ambitions
I get into the worst situations
But here I am crystal clean


And all the nights are lonely
The words I say to you are phony
Because there's nothing left to say


And though you say you can't live without me
And every single night you think about me
I could care less about you, care less about you
And how I love the sound of you walking away
And I can see clearer and I'm getting closer
To finding out just who I am without you in the way
So hold me
But only
For today

    She loved him deeply but did not want to let him know... She cherished the times he walked with his left hand in her back pocket. But he was not her knight in shining armor she felt... She was young and she still thinks about what could have been

    He's leaving her, walking away and rather than admit she cares more than he does she tries to pretend she could care less about him.

    She wishes she cared less for her significant other, because she feels freer when she's alone but at same time relies on his love and his words. She wishes she was less attached for the sake of her freedom.
