Katie Costello – I Can't Fix Us Two lyrics

Left you by the phone at half past three
Now it's quarter to, you're not to be seen
Last I saw your face was ten hours gone
And suddenly you're sorry, it's my fault for giving in

You will never love the way you know
You will never love the way you show

Yeah I go back to you, every chance I get
No matter how soft my skin is
From the last time you dug real deep
My bones are shaking and I can't do this anymore
And I need to stop missing you
I can't fix us two

Left you by my heart now it's ruined red
I should have said how mad I really was
Told you how I felt but now it's dark
Now go to sleep upset, didn't tell you what I meant

You will never love the way you know
You will never love the way you show

Yeah I go back to you, every chance I get
No matter how soft my skin is
From the last time you dug real deep
My bones are shaking and I can't do this anymore
And I need to stop missing you
I can't fix us two

Will we part our ways it's hard to say
We've come too far to say we just can't stay
Seems we'll always be two
And I'll never quite get you

Yeah I go back to you, every chance I get
No matter how soft my skin is
From the last time you dug real deep
My bones are shaking and I can't do this anymore
And I need to stop missing you
I can't fix us two

You will never love the way you know
You will never love the way you show

Left you by my heart now it's ruined red
I should have said how mad I really was, oh

    I hear a lot of guilt on her part. She's responsible for her inability to communicate with her partner, when it really counts, when it matters most, when the stakes are at their highest. It's silly to think that you can "fix" anyone but yourself. And once you "get" the Other, another human being, in their radically singular and unique existence, it's over anyway because you've taken something so sacred for granted--the mystery of an Other's own humanity. I can't help but think she is unjustly resenting this other person because she can't come clean or apologize for losing interest. What else could one do but 'know' the love they have for an other and do their best to have it known to them by 'showing' it? Sounds like Costello's not only a thief, but has a deaf and cold heart also.

    This song is about a girl who's in love with a guy who keeps letting her down, but like a fool, she keeps going back to him even though she knows she shouldn't and that nothing wil ever really change. She realizes that even though he breaks her heart, maybe it's supposed to hurt like this, and that she'll never really understand him, or be able to fix whatever's wrong.
