And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

And I worked so hard
And I killed myself
And you broke my bones
And I sold my soul

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

And I could have been your other
And I could have been your sister
Be your twin brother
I just wanted to be

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

We were just wasting time x6

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

    This is one person's retrospect of a previous relationship. It doesn't really give any clear indication that this other person did not love him, however. At one point he loved this other person and he thought he needed him/her to feel complete or whatever it was that was driving him to try and make a failing relationship work. He tried so hard to make it work that he felt like he was selling his soul. He felt like was doing things he would normally never do just to make this relationship work. It wasn't working and he felt like he was working so hard that he was breaking his bones in the process. He looks back and realizes that they were not right for each other. He cared deeply for this person and he wanted to be something to him/her, even if it wasn't his/her other. He's finally come to terms that he didn't need this other person as badly as he once thought. They are no longer together and as he begins to move on with his life he realizes that they have both wasted time instead of just moving on.

    ''i think he is complaining about a superficial girlfriend who didn't really love him ''
    ''i think this song is about being unappreciated by someone that you love. ''
    I think the may be both comments are right , this incredible band always deal with deep passion and failure relationships ...
    The drums are one of the best indie rock bands ever .
