Speak with your tongue tied,
I know that you're tired
But I just want to know,
Where you want to go,
I may be sad, But I'm not weak,
This situation is bleak
And your puffy eyes never lie,
Your tears come from inside.

Until someday I'll be waiting for an answer
I guess that yesterday's not good enough for you,
You know that I hate this song,
You know that I hate this song
Because it was written for you

Drown your fears with me
I'm feeling real sorry
Your glossy eyes don't need
The sadness they have seen
But you're way too deep to swim
Back up again
But somehow I can't find
The moment you said goodbye

Until someday I'll be waiting for an answer
I guess that yesterday's not good enough for you,
You know that I hate this song,
You know that I hate this song
Because it was written for you

This is becoming a problem I'm hurting it's unfair
But somehow your words,
The way that I heard are haunting me,
You're under my skin
You're breaking in,
And the tasteless fights that filled our nights
Are starting to cave in,
You're under my skin
You're breaking in
And if Sundays what it takes to prove
I have nothing else to loose

Until someday I'll be waiting for an answer
I guess that yesterday's not good enough for you,
You know that I hate this song,
You know that I hate this song
Because it was written for you

    this girl really wants an answer from the guy because she needs to know where they stand. she's going crazy from constantly waiting, but he's never there. she doesn't get why he won't reply soon enough. she's been waiting for so long now she's started giving up hope. he doesn't care how it hurts. or maybe, he's too scared to. he keeps giving her hope but it's taken from her in the silence that follows afterwards. she can't figure out what she did, or at what point he decided to stop caring for her.

    He knows she's hurt and he knows it's partially his fault. He then finds a song that reminds him so much of her that he hates it but it also reminds him that he's in love with her
