Explanation
"
One day you screaming you love me loud
The next day you're so cold
One day you're here, one day you're there, one day you care
You're so unfair
This is saying how she's always changing her mind about the relationship and how she feels about her. Like she can't make up her mind whether she likes him or not. Or there could be another man in her life that's causing all these issues between them.

And baby, it's amazing I'm in this maze with you
I just can't crack your code
He's saying that he can't quite figure her out, but he likes that about her. How she makes him fight to be with her. It also could mean that she's trying to tell him that she's through with him by doing all these mean things to him. Basically telling him they're through without actually saying it to him. After all, actions speak louder than words, right?

"
You'd take the clothes off my back and I'd let you
You'd steal the food right out my mouth and I'd watch you eat it
I still don’t know why, why I love you so much, ohh
He's saying that she could take everything he has, but he'd still love her just as much. It might also mean that she's been taking advantage of him and he's just been letting it happen because he loves her so much. Either way, he doesn't really want to let her go because she's everything to him.

Say something, I'm giving up on you
Say something
The repeating of "Say something, I'm giving up on you" is trying to show that he's coming to the end and, well, giving up. Then the last line where he says "Say something" is him giving up on them after fighting for it to work for so long. The way he says it is also important, he says it as if he was exhausted or tired. Which implies that he gave up a good fight that wasn't very successful.

Make that money, watch it burn
I think this is saying that you spend all your time working for money just to spend majority of it on bills, taxes, and necessities.

Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars, yeah we'll be counting stars
It could mean that money won't bring them happiness and they'd rather be doing simple things together like counting stars; rather than doing expensive things.

And I will swallow my pride
This line shows that he may have made some mistakes in the relationship that he never really owned up to or apologized for. And now he's trying to allow her to realize that he's accepting his wrongs.

Anywhere, I would've followed you
Saying that you would've dropped everything just to be with them whenever. Since it's speaking in the past tense, it gives the sense that they've already accepted that the other person isn't going to continue with the relationship. Even though it's in the beginning, it helps set the tone for the rest of the song.

I'll be the one, if you want me to
I think it's kind of like putting yourself out there, but knowing that they won't take up on the offer. You really really want them to want you, but you're well aware that they don't.

Say something, I'm giving up on you
This line really speaks to me. It's saying how they really want it to work, but the other person isn't trying that much. It reminds me when you've been texting someone for a long time, but you're always the first person to say something. Then there's that one day you don't text first and the person doesn't text you at all so you see how many days you can go without them texting you. Before you know it, it's been a week and they've already moved on to another girl. It's a stomach-dropping feeling and I think that's the feeling they're trying to make the listener experience with this line. A feeling of lost hope and surrendering.

And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl
These lines show how he still hasn't figured out love and how it really works. He could also be saying that he's had a past relationship where his heart was broken and he's trying to come back to a point where he'll be able to love again. Like if he was betrayed or the other person, even himself, just gave up on the relationship. That loss of interest could be carrying over to the new one and preventing him from going deeper into the relationship and carrying it out to it's full potential.
