All these days have turned these months into a year
And I've been spending every second wishing I could disappear
And I know when they all start to speak again
I just need some inspiration I can rightfully defend
And I'm close when it's hurting bad, it only gets worse
I sing for the children of the earth

I've broken every rule that I've known
Since you told me that I've got to have passion
Honestly, you've got me all wrong
I am just a boy on my own, and we're looking for some promising action
Tell me what it takes, you we're wrong

When I'm gone I can't keep up with what's at home
And I'd love to make it right, but there are things I can't control
But I'm close, when it's over tell me when to let go
I'll be the last one to know

When you were at the top of my list, I promised you
That this wouldn't happen, how do I begin to explain
Crimson lips and permanent kiss, you love me
On the back of her napkin, maybe I should throw it away

Make a move, so carefully,
Cut me down and let me bleed
And I'll slowly, walk away

And now you wanna talk, so fitting
I remember times, when you were holding by a thread of a chance
You'll make it out alive, God willing
All you need is time,
And it's been getting awful close to our year
This is so messed up, but if you give me all your love
Then we'll show angels up above,
That we can make it out alive, God willing,
I remember times, when you were holding by a thread of a chance

I've broken all the rule that I've known
You told me that I've got to have passion
Honestly, you've got me all wrong
I am just a boy on my own,
And we're looking for some promising action
Tell me what it takes, you we're wrong

Make a move, so carefully,
Get me down and let me bleed
And I'll slowly walk away

    Honeslty there is no way to be 100% sure what exactully this song is about.
    That being said, i think we each have a chance to make it into whatever we feel is best. Personally, it seems like this guy has fallen for this girl, but she doesnt feel the same way. So she tells him to go out and try and prove to her that hes worth her time. He thinks shes worth it "ive broken all the rules i know" to try and prove her hes right for her. But then at the end of the song, he realizes he shouldnt have to change and just wants out. But of course he still has feelings for her, he just knows now that "you've got me all wrong, i am just a boy on my own". He wants closure "you loved me on the back of a napkin, maybe i should throw it away.. " he finally down trying to change himself and just wants to walk away "tell me what it takes to move on, "cut me down and let me bleed, and i'll slowly walk away.. "

    I believe the song means,
    Ive made mistakes, but if you cannot forgive me and put it aside what will it take for us to move on.
    We love each other. People are tlaking about the wrong ive done, they keep bringing it up, you keep bringing it up, when you were making mistakes i didnt do that to you. What does it take . I am feeling so low lately, ive only wanted to dissapear since.

    It's tell me what it takes to move on, not you were wrong. And it's not and we're looking for some promising action, it's looking for some promising action. Listen to the song carefully.
