Story Behind the Song

I was struggling with a long distance relationship when I first got to college. I said my boyfriend at the time was "the fuel I drink" because when we spoke I felt happy and energized, but I would run out of fuel quickly because I couldn't talk to him all the time.

Lyrics

How could you not see this coming?
How could I think of you not being mine?
How could I tell you it's over?
I watched your tears fall one at a time

But since then I've been trying to tell you
Lately I've been trying to tell you

You are the fuel I drink
But I run out and I slow down, and I think
Of what I'm missing
You are the fuel
Drink up the fuel
That makes me never wanna leave you
That makes me never wanna leave you

Why can't I lay down my weapon?
Why can't I turn and just drive away?
Why can't I face you with sorrow?
I know exactly what I need to say

And that's why I've been trying to tell you
That's why I've been trying to tell you

And your love comes
Wrapped up in plastic
Tied with a knot made of string
But I'm afraid to unwrap it
I don't wanna mess up everything

How could we not see this coming?
How could we fight what we're feeling inside?
How could we say that it's over?
You are a charge I cannot deny

Lately I've been trying to tell you
Lately I've been trying to tell you
