I can't believe it, you of all things
It's been a while; memories deem some kind of anthem
Lingering, images settle internally

Ribbons and detours meant nothing to me
Swaying our sentiments, pulling our strings
Tempting me softly, but killing our dream
You said it's over but maybe...
It's the same old thing

I can't believe it, you of all things
Coming in homage, devious needs
Intimate outlies, weakening
Tranquilize slowly, inside of me

Ribbons and detours meant nothing to me
Swaying our sentiments, pulling our strings

Tempting me softly, but killing our dream
You said it's over but maybe...
It's the same old thing

I gave the softest parts, trumped by the darkest parts
Whispered the tender parts, made of idealistic scenes

Ribbons and detours meant nothing to me
Swaying our sentiments, pulling our strings
Tempting me softly, but killing our dream
You said it's over but maybe...
It's the same old thing
It's the same old thing
It's the same old thing
It's the same old thing

    I think it means that he keeps telling her it's over but he is cruel in a calculating charming way to keep her still interested, she is knows this because it's what he always does but she can't help herself!
