You took the tunnel route home
You've never taken that way with me before
Did you feel the need for change?
Apologies on your fingernails
Love flickered in the city of lights,
Like intermittent radio waves

I don't need your tears
I don't want your love
I just gotta get home

And I feel like I'm breaking up, and I wanted to stay
Headlights on the hillside, don't take me this way
I want you to hold me, I want you to pray
This is bigger than us

You went where the horses cry
You've never taken that way with me before
Did you feel the need for change?
Guilt smeared across your lips
I was tired and cold from the window
You're tired, nothing has changed

I don't need your tears
I don't want your love
I just gotta get home

And I feel like I'm breaking up, and I wanted to stay
Headlights on the hillside, don't take me this way
I don't want you to hold me, I don't want you to pray
This is bigger than us

And I feel like I'm breaking up, and I wanted to stay
Headlights on the hillside, don't take me this way
I don't want you to hold me, I don't want you to pray
This is bigger than us

And I feel like I'm breaking up, and I wanted to stay
Headlights on the hillside, don't take me this way
I don't want you to hold me, I don't want you to pray
This is bigger than us

    It's about a boy who really likes a girl and something drastic happens and he can't do anything to stop it, but then someone else does and that makes him love her even more, the other person saves her but he feels like he has to do something to make him look like the hero, so her kisses her [watch the video to understand this]

    Some of these lyrics are wrong, like the part where they say "i don't want you to pray" at then end, should say "i want you to pray"

    He thought he could love her... She was indecisive and eventually, though wanting to remain close with her, his own fears prevent him from being hurt from it.. So he wishes he could have had enough faith to remain there for her but he can't anymore because it's beyond his control..
