We can keep in touch if that's what you want,
You can call me too if that's what friends do.
It's not more than one, if that's what you thought.
You'd say I don't have the time for you,
But I do.

I could stay inside if that's what you want
I won't say a word for a day or two.
When I'm in my room I know what to do about you.

I can sleep, (x3)
Soon.

When I get home I am kept from everyone in the house
I'll walk down the hall where you have gone
To feel the way it felt again.

I am what you need when you can't find it somewhere else.
I am what you want when you don't have anything else.

    I think it is about a break up, she's still infatuated with him, letting herself be used by him 'when [he doesn't] have anything else' just so she can feel like how it was before.

    I think it's about a couple, obviously but the person she is singing about moves away. They are still in love but they are not sure whether to stay together or to just be friends. It just kind of shows how difficult a long distance relationship can be. They have to find time for each other and deal with the pain of missing each other.

    Loving someone you think is never going to leave you, and letting them know that when they do you're always gonna be that thing they need
