Song Description

This is about finding someone that you know you don't want to live without, but realizing this fact causes you to want to sabotage the relationship.

Story Behind the Song

I was dating a guy who was flat-out wonderful. Everything he did was selfless and based on love for me and everyone he came into contact with. I found myself pushing him away, telling him I wasn't ready for anything serious, and basically trying to end the relationship for no reason other than I was scared. I was afraid he was going to be it for me, that I would fall so hopelessly in love that there would either be no going back, or I'd get my heart broken. This song came in a moment of clarity as I realized how much I really cared for him, despite the fact that I was trying to push him away and hide from my feelings.

Lyrics

I?m gonna try to fight I?m gonna try to hide
I?m gonna try to keep my feelings locked up inside
But don?t let me, don?t let me
I?m gonna try to walk away, hell, I?ll probably try to run
And I?m gonna try to tell you that you?re not the one
But don?t let me, don?t let me

No matter what I do, no matter what I say
I?ve got no business walking (pushing you) away
Not when you?ve been so good to me
I?m gonna try to push and I?m gonna try to shove
And I?m gonna try to tell you that I?m not in love
I?ll give you every reason to leave
But don?t let me, don?t let me

I?m gonna say mean things, gonna try to break your heart
But we both know if you leave, I?ll be falling apart
So don?t let me, don?t let me
I?m gonna try to make you think that this isn?t working out
Gonna try to tell you lies, leave your head filled with doubt
But don?t let me, don?t let me

No matter what I do, no matter what I say
I?ve got no business walking (pushing you) away
Not when you?ve been so good to me
I?m gonna try to push and I?m gonna try to shove
And I?m gonna try to tell you that I?m not in love
I?ll give you every reason to leave
But don?t let me, don?t let me

Whatever it takes to make me stay
Please don?t let me get away
You know me better than I know myself
Keep me close, don?t let me go
Don?t listen when I tell you to leave me alone
I could never be with anyone else

No matter what I do, no matter what I say
This is where I want to stay
You?ll never meet anyone as stubborn as me
I?m gonna try to push, and I?m gonna try to shove
But that doesn?t mean that I?m not in love
I?ll give you every reason to leave
No matter what I do, no matter what I say
I?ve got no business walking away
Not when you?ve been so good to me
I?m gonna try to push and I?m gonna try to shove
And I?m gonna try to tell you that I?m not in love
I?ll give you every reason to leave
But don?t let me, don?t let me
