Well I agree with the guy below me to some degree, but I think tom is talking about how this specific person (marigold) is unable to fit in anywhere and is unable to make any real friends, maybe faking friendship, which doesn't end well(take-backs and sweet regrets). Her relationship with, in this case, tom is a sinking ship, it "hurts too much" to truly be in love with someone, because, as with all her other friends, she will lose them.
That may sound like a pretty shallow meaning, usually streetlight's songs have deeper meanings tha I'm not able to interpret, lol, but I least I tried :)

While this song talks about the way that people look out for themselves and or on other person that they are interested in, I think that this song concentrates greatly on the deterioration of an important relationship. The line "Though sour grapes will turn to wine its all just vinegar with time" talks about how a relationship grows and blossoms, but hits a point where it is not the way it used to be. Tom talks about how he and this girl were absolutely invested in one another. They depended on each other while they were together, but once they began to become distant ("We used to be in love but now we are in like") Marigold had no other people to turn to and Tom was no longer there for her.
