Paramore – Temporary lyrics

I used to be so quick, so clever
I used to know myself much better
Anyone can see that this is only permanent
Temporary, it never hurts to try

And it's all a game
I know we'll stay the same
But repetition ends in failure
And every time I see it in your eyes
When repetition ends, we'll start over

Now I'm a walking contradiction
So tell me what's wrong with this picture
Cause anyone can see that this is only permanent
Temporary, so don't hurt me this time

And it's all a game
I know we'll stay the same
But repetition ends in failure
And every time I see it in your eyes
When repetition ends, we'll start over

So give it up, just give up
Give it up, give up
So give it up, just give up
Give it up, give up

And it's all a game
I know we'll stay the same
But repetition ends in failure
And every time I see it in your eyes
When repetition ends, well start over

We'll start over

    Not too sure what the verses are bout, but the chorus seems like being stuck in a situation that's halfway from somewhere but on the way to nowhere. "its all a game i know we'll stay the same"
    Like you could keep trying for something, or someone, but no matter how hard you try no progess seems to be made. Yet you know if it keeps going on like this it wont work out. "repetiton ends in failure"
    What keeps you going is telling urse; f is that you believe when things stop being the same a new fresh start will happen, leaving the past behind focusing on the future. "when repetiton ends, we'll start over"
    Holding onto to something n not letting go, is like being caught in repetition. And sometimes you need an ending at any cost cos it'll be for the best no mater what.

    I may not be right but I think the song is basically about yo-yo dating, or so it seems. It's saying that every time, the relationship fails, but they try it again and again and that they should give up but somehow, it's hard to stop. It's like a game and nothing changes but they just keep repeating it.
    If it's not that, it's what bravadious said. Or something else. I don't know.
