Can you answer me?
No more time for questioning
My car's outside I want to leave
Don't you think I'm interesting
Well, I'm listening.

Everything's obvious
The way you put your hand on me
The way you talk so easily
The way your lips are glistening
Well, I'm listening.

You get around
You want me
You come around
You need me
But this time around
I won't be back at all

But maybe misery
Is what I need to keep my sanity
And I don't mean if things don't go my way
I'll be pleased to meet you

And maybe yesterday
Was the day that I could get away
Now today I'm stuck in sanity
And I'm pleased to meet you

Right now I think I'm sane,
But I'm really just anxious
To cross that bridge
The subconscious oasis
Where right is right
And wrong is wrong
And you are there
To build me up

You get around
You want me
You come around
You need me
This time around
I won't be back at all

Maybe misery
Is what I need to keep my sanity
And I don't mean if things don't go my way
I'll be pleased to meet you (pleased to meet you)

And maybe yesterday
Was the day that I could get away
Now today I'm stuck in sanity
And I've seen it all
I've seen it all
Many times before
Maybe misery
Is what I need to keep my sanity
And I don't mean if things don't go my way
I'll be pleased to meet you

And maybe yesterday
Was the day that I could get away
Now today I'm stuck in sanity
And I've seen it all
I've seen it all
Many times before

Maybe misery (many times before)
Is what I need to keep my sanity (many times before)
And I don't mean if things don't go my way (many times before)
I'll be pleased to meet you (many times before)

And maybe yesterday (many times before)
Was the day that I could get away (many times before)
Now today I'm stuck in sanity (many times before)
And I've seen it all
I've seen it all
Many times before

    To me, this song is about when you like someone and are questioning whether or not they like you too. Eventually you get sick of waiting for that person and not knowing how they feel so you try to move on, but all the "what if"s drive you crazy. You end up settling for heartbreak because it is easier in the long run than having unanswered questions that send you in circles.
