So nice to see your face again
Tell me how long has it been
Since you've been here
(Since you've been here)
You look so different than before
You're still the person I adore
Frozen with fear
All out of love but I take it from the past
All out of words cause I'm sure it'll ever last

I've been saving these last words for one last miracle
But now I'm not sure
I can't save you if you don't let me
You just get me like I've never been gotten before

Maybe it's a bitter wind
That chilled from the pacific rim
That brought you this way
(Brought you my way)
Do not make me think of him
The way he touched your fragile skin
That haunts me every day
I'm out of love but I can't forget the past
I'm out of words but I'm sure it'll ever last

I've been saving these last words for one last miracle
But now I'm not sure
I can't save you if you don't let me
You just get me like I've never been gotten before
Like I've never been gotten before

Slash Solo

So nice to see your face again
But tell me will this ever end
Don't disappear

I've been saving these last words for one last miracle
But now I'm not sure
And I can't save you if you don't let me
You just get me like I've never been gotten before
Like I've never been gotten before

    I think the first verse is about a man who meets again with his past girlfriend, she broke up with him, and he's not over her, and when he sees her now he realizes nothing has changed, but he still has doubt about her as he is afraid history will repeat itself ("it'll never last"). In the second verse they're back together (as she was "brought his way") but he just can't seem to put his faith in it, a consequence of what happened before (he can't forget the past). It may be she cheated on him or moved on to someone else and he just wasn't ready to deal with that. Then in the mini-verse he says he has doubts that she is still with him, but he wishes he's wrong. So it's a song that presents a broken-hearted manwho was hurt by this women before and now he fears it'll happen again.

    This song shows that there is someone out there that gets all of us. Someone out there that will understand. Sure you've thought about it, and hoped about it. "so nice to see your face again, but tell me this will never end. Don't dissapear" you've heard someone is out there for you and you've 'seen them before' in your thoughts and hopes. But when this person actually arrives in your life you don't wanna give them up. You want to hold them forever, let them understand you forever. You want to be understood, gotten.

    When someone loves someone else so deeply and the other person is in love or was in love but now a prisoner of that love and abuse! To love someone one so badly and they can't hear you telling them that you love them because of the hell they are in. Yet they are the soul mate you need. The one who gets you! Meaning it clicks! People sometimes can't escape from the walls they are in. And sometimes people can't reach you past those walls. Pain. Hurt. All because they wanted love.

    If you fully read the lyrics, its about an abusive relationship that an ex boyfriend can't stop "you are still the person i adore, face frozen with fear! " he wants to save her, and still loves her, but he can't do so. He has been hoping that one day he can speak his words that will free her from her abusive boyfriend "don't make me think of him, the way he touched your fragile skin, haunts me everyday"

    After a long time, they met again. The girl that she once loved and adore. Meeting her, all of the mem'ries are coming back. He don't love her anymore but seeing her makes him remember all the pain. All the pain that the girl had brought her (seeing her with someone else) Now he cnt explain what he feels, the girl needs him so much and he cnt just live her because this girl means so much to him.
