about

This song is about one of my best friends. It's a song about wanting someone else to let you in, and the frustration it can bring about when you're putting forth so much effort to be open and not seeing any reciprocation. Of course, I've learned since then that sometimes people just need time. Your openness, just like anyone else's, is a gift that must be given freely, and without expectation.

lyrics

Carry me back home or leave me far away from here
Bring me back alive or bring me back a souvenir

And if you don't believe in love
Then why should I believe in truth?
And if you don't believe in me
Then why should I believe in you?

Say what's on your mind or let me say what's on my mind
Break the silence down or cover it with thoughts unkind

And if the walls are closing in
It's not because I'm not your friend
And if the lamps are burning out
It's not because I'm giving in

Don't you think I'd go?
Don't you think I'd go with you?
Don't you think I know you?
Don't you think I know?

Let me hold your hand or let me fade away as well
Spin me 'round again or spin around your carousel

And if you think it's just too late
Maybe you should take me home
And if you want to be alone
Maybe you should be alone

But don't you think I'd go?
Don't you think I'd go with you?
Don't you think I know you?
Don't you think I know?
