I don't patronize
I realize
I'm losing and this is my real life
I'm half asleep
And I am wide awake
This habit is always so hard to break
I don't want to be the bad guy
I've been blaming myself and I think you know why
I'm killing time (I'm killing time),
And time's killing you every way that I do

Did you say
Please just follow me
I thought you wanted me
Cause I want you all to myself
I can try and suck it up
I just can't suck it up
Make me feel like someone else
Please just follow me
I thought you wanted me
Cause I want you all to myself
I can try and suck it up
I just can't suck it up
Make me feel like someone else

I'm under the gun
Feel like the only one
I just can't decide what I'm running from
This isn't what
I wanted but
I can't keep my filthy fucking mouth shut
It's not enough (It's not enough) it's never enough
And I wish I could breath without getting it stuck
Can't focus it (Can't focus it) but I try it over and over again

Did you say
Please just follow me
I thought you wanted me
Cause I want you all to myself
I can try and suck it up
I just can't suck it up
Make me feel like someone else
Please just follow me
I thought you wanted me
Cause I want you all to myself
I can try and suck it up
I just can't suck it up
Make me feel like someone else

Na-na na-na na
Na-na na-na na-na
Na-na na-na na
Na-na na-na na-na

(Please just follow me
I thought you wanted me
Cause I want you all to myself
I can try and suck it up
I just can't suck it up
Make me feel like...)

Did you say
Please just follow me
I thought you wanted me
Cause I can't stay with someone else
I'll try and suck it up
I just can't fuck it up
I want you all to myself

Did you say
Please just follow me
I thought you wanted me
Cause I want you all to myself
I can try and suck it up
I just can't suck it up
Make me feel like someone else

Na-na na-na na!

    It means, to me, that he doesn't want to lose her. He doesn't want to give her up to anyone else.

    This song to me is about someone who wants to be with someone else more than anything. You don't want to share them with anybody, ever. The other person acts like they want you, but sometimes they dont. But you keep thinking that they want you, because if you love them as much as you do, shouldn't they want and love you just as much? Terribly sad song for me. :c

    For me, this song is my relationship with my best friend, minus the part where i think she wants me. I think this song is about wanting someone for yourself, and not wanting to see them with someone else because you admit you can't deal with it.
    Love the song. It's always stuck in my head... Think that means something?

    I think this song is just a guy, who likes this girl but he keeps messing up when he's around her and can't stop himself from messing up
