You're like a moving star
I can't get close enough to you
Been months I got your call
Our falling out we slipped right into
You were an ace for me
My crazy heart got hold of you
Your hand called every bluff
I had to fold and let it go

Since I saw you last
I've been holding back
I figured I should do just that
I thought I'd crack but I smiled instead
I'll let you read the fine print

I walk a line between
The thoughts of now
And where I've been
Today the grass is green
I've got it all, so why reminisce
I'm just a mermaid
Who is not content with waveless oceans
Sometimes a gusty wind
Is what I need to feel again

Since I saw you last
I've been holding back
I figured I should do just that
I thought I'd crack but I smiled instead
I'll let you read the fine print

Read between the lines
For what got left behind
But I can't say I hold it down
The weight of seeing you now

I've been holding back x5
I thought I'd crack... I thought
I've been hold...
I thought I'd crack but I smile instead
I'll let you read the fine print

Since I saw you last
I've been holding back
I figured I should do just that
I thought I'd crack but I smiled instead
I'll let you read the fine print

    A woman who's fallen for a man who is uncapable of giving her what she needs/wants. When she comes face2face with him she is able to hold her composure and not allow herself to show her true feelings. She now has to protect her heart from falling for him again.

    I think it means that a girl meets a boy and really wants it to work out but she finds out that the boy had other loves before her she knows it will hurt to say no to him but it will make life much better for them so she says we are better off this way

    I believe this song is about seeing an ex and having 101 thoughts run through your head!! But realising that you are better off without them.

    "i thought i'd crack but i smiled instead, i'll let you read the fine print. " --> even though it might hurt to see them, your putting on a brave face and letting them know that you are just fine without them!!
