Do you remember how we met?
Silhouetted by the lights...
You were drunk and tried to take a mental picture with your hands
I was thinking about that
And a bunch of other things
Stop looking at the floor...
I need to pour out this expansive dose of words.

I can't explain...
I need to be alone.

I know the timing isn't great
But these things, you just can't plan.
I just need a little time
So I can find myself again
'Cause I get buried underneath
All the things they think you are
And I'm too tired to pretend it doesn't hurt
To be left out

I had a pocket full of dreams
But I gave them all to you
Now I think I want them back
So can you tell me if I'm crazy or confused?
Don't ever change
The way you are
I've never loved anyone more.

    Im pretty sure he is singing this song from his girl friends perspective. Its the break up 'conversation' she had with him. And the part about her feeling left out is because he is famous and has a band that she cant be apart of.

    Do you remember how we met?
    Silhouetted by the lights...
    You were drunk and tried to take a mental picture with your hands

    [-- The first time I saw you, I wanted to be yours.]

    I was thinking about that
    And a bunch of other things
    Stop looking at the floor...
    I need to pour out this expansive dose of words.

    [-- It's so hard to think that I need to hurt you, yet love you so much]

    I can't explain...
    I need to be alone.

    [-- I'ts personal.. and even though you know everything about me, there are some things that cannot possibly be explained.]

    I know the timing isn't great
    But these things, you just can't plan.
    I just need a little time
    So I can find myself again
    'Cause I get buried underneath
    All the things they think you are
    And I'm too tired to pretend it doesn't hurt
    To be left out

    [-- I know that it was inconvenient, but I can't plan what has to happen. I love you, but I need things to be okay for me before we continue our relationship. I'm tired of pretending that I'm always happy.]

    I had a pocket full of dreams
    But I gave them all to you
    Now I think I want them back
    So can you tell me if I'm crazy or confused?
    Don't ever change
    The way you are
    I've never loved anyone more.

    [-- I gave you everything I possibly had, but I need to regain my strength. I put all of my time and energy into you.. and I need that energy back. I'll always love you.. Always. You're incredible.]

    Do you remember how we met?
    Silhouetted by the lights...
    You were drunk and tried to take a mental picture with your hands

    means that at the moment we met i knew that there was something there...

    I was thinking about that
    And a bunch of other things
    Stop looking at the floor...
    I need to pour out this expansive dose of words.

    means that things are going wrong, and i need to face them, alone.

    I can't explain...
    I need to be alone.

    -self explanatory

    I know the timing isn't great
    But these things, you just can't plan.
    I just need a little time
    So I can find myself again
    'Cause I get buried underneath
    All the things they think you are
    And I'm too tired to pretend it doesn't hurt
    To be left out

    -means that this time is not the best time to be together, that i to figure this on my own, i need to make it right

    I had a pocket full of dreams
    But I gave them all to you
    Now I think I want them back
    So can you tell me if I'm crazy or confused?
    Don't ever change
    The way you are
    I've never loved anyone more.

    mean i gave it all to you, clearly the chick is going through something, or the relationship totaly wrong. The other person is woderfull but she just cant be with him.
