I've been trying to make sense
I've been shouting under my breath
How's any of this in my interest?
You sold me out, I must've not gotten the cheque
Your lust is a lie, but it comes as no surprise
Time after time, it goes right past the line
I do my best to, to make ammends with you
But I just can't see the end oh

Don't hold your breath, I'm not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

Don't hold your breath, I'm not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R
Don't hold your breath, I'm not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless, and you're defenseless

And isn't it funny how
Those black clouds follow you around?
It's Karma smiling down
Just let me know when it's in town
You act like the world owes you a favor
You want it all but you don't like the taste, oh
You've been throwing bricks at my window
Like there's no better way to say 'hello'

Hello...

Don't hold your breath, I'm not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R
Don't hold your breath, I'm not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless, and you're defenseless

The best, you never had
The best, you never had
The best, you never had
The best, you never had

I'm the devil on your shoulder
I'm the conscious in your mind

I'm the feeling that you,
You cannot hide

I'm the devil on your shoulder
Telling you that love is blind
It's ok when it's hiding in disguise

Your loose lips let,
Let the words slide
You spend too much time talking about my life

Stories you will spin,
Just for a power trip
It's safe to say that I am not into it

But, in the picture you are not
Someone else is in your spot
This is the result of people moving on

Good luck with killing time
You won't be killing mine
I'll do my best
To always be on your mind

Your mind

I never once said I didn't mean this
I can't wait to see how this one gets out
You are the first to question my achievements
But that's all right, my dreams I've been living

Don't hold your breath, I'm not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

Don't hold your breath, I'm not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R
Don't hold your breath, I'm not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless, and you're defenseless

The best, you never had
The best, you never had
The best, you never had
The best, you never had

    Sounds like he's talking to friends who have left him due to his fame when he says he's living his dream and has all these achievements, could be applied to many situations though. Whatever the meaning its a great song :d

    The song to me is about two people who were in love. However, its time for them to move on. The boy has become reckless, killing time, finding other things to do. Moving on fast basically.

    I think it's about being young and falling in and out of love easily. You can lose a partner and move on pretty soon, without being down about it. :)

    To me its about lvoe and friendship
    Love because the boy and girl break up and the boy is implieing that hes doing better with out her and hes just being reckelss with everything he does
    Then friendship because they could of been best of friends then fell out and start saying thay they wish tehy had never become best friends in the first place and neither of them will find anyone else that can replace them
