You would look a little better
Don't you know
If you just wore less make-up
But it's hard to realise
When you're sky high
Fighting off the spaceships

And so you're drinking in your room
To make it all go
It didn't end too soon
You've got the next one
You're holding on too long
You've got to let go
Your other love is gone
And you know

It's too late
It's too late
You've got another one coming
And it's going to be the same

It's too late
It's too late
You've got another one coming
And it's going to be the same

I tried to find a quiet place that we could go
To help you make decisions
But I didn't find it easy to tell them apart
With double vision

And so you're drinking in your room
To make it all go
It didn't end too soon
You've got the next one
You're holding on too long
You've got to let go
Your other love is gone
And you know

It's too late
It's too late
You've got another one coming
And it's going to be the same

It's too late
It's too late
You've got another one coming
And it's going to be the same

It's too late
It's too late
You've got another one coming
And it's going to be the same

It's too late
It's too late
You've got another one coming
And it's going to be the...

It's not the same
It's not the same
It's not the same
You're going to tell me that I'm right
You're going to come back down
And find yourself
Where you are again

You didn't know
You didn't know
You didn't know
So don't pretend you saw it now
It's not something you'd want to happen
Now you know who you are again

It's not the same
It's not the same
It's not the same
You're going to tell me that I'm right
You're going to come back down
And find yourself
Where you are again

    A guy tries to console a girl who has picked up a drug and drinking problem after a hard breakup. He tries to tell her that if she keeps it up tradgedy will repeat itself, so she needs to come back down and regain who she was before.

    It's not explicit but this is how i see it.

    Its about relapsing into addiction after a relationship breaks up, where you tried to recover for the other person.

    Then you can't get yourself motivated to stop your addiction again for anyone else. And so you can date, or not, at that point, but it's pointless cuz you've already re-prioritized the addiction over anyone else.

    Sounds like substances with the "sky high, spaceships"... "coming down"... "you've got another one coming"...

    "it's too late, you've got another one coming, and it's going to be the same" sounds like relapse-- it's too late, you've already got yourself getting dropoffs again, and it's going to be the same as it was before.

    "i tried to find a quiet place... Double vision" is when a friend tries to intervention them. Making decisions whether to keep using or try to quit again. Double vision-- the user looks the same as they did when they were clean and in love, but they're really not the same person at all.

    The "it's not the same" is the addict finally trying to break the chain and come down. But then they're in life, without an addiction or the relationship that motivated them. Relapse isn't something they'd want to happen. "who you are again" refers to "once an addict, always an addict" mentality... Where you're always soo close to relapsing.



    How i see it, anyways.

    Feeling broken hearted by a past situation, possibly love and trying to get passed it. However, you're not handling it maturely but rather trying to run away. But you need to look past it and realize that something better can come, and that it's not going to be the same and hopefully even better.

    It is about comforting somebody who cannot let go of their feelings, due to a broken up relationship. He says to the person that it'll be okay, because there are more people out there.
