See-Saw

Note: this is a song describing someone's decision to break up with their partner. I think that they do end up breaking up, but when I read it through I'm not sure. It's on the basis of change. Someone has changed.

See-Saw


I wake up and I wonder if tonight is worth the waiting
Considering the last time I went 'round to your house
All I remember is the far-too-loud debating
And the insults flying out of your mouth

'Cause lately I've been thinking that you might not quite be stable
And that you're maybe dragging me along with you
I've used loads of made-up reasons why I've been busy all month
But I'm down to my last made-up excuse

Somehow I don't think you'll believe me if I tell you that...
Well, I don't think you're very nice
But earlier this week when someone asked me if I loved you
I hate to admit it, but I had to think twice
Before I answered

When you hugged me this morning it didn't feel the same
As the way you hugged me yesterday
And now you're sat beside me and
It's not how it used to be
And I'm thinking that I just don't want to stay

'Cause lately I've been worried that I'm just not able
And that I might be dragging you back with me
I was all out of excuses but inside I know the truth is
That I don't think you and I are meant to be

Somehow I don't think you'll believe me if I tell you that...
Well, I don't think you're very nice
But earlier this week when someone asked me if I loved you
I hate to admit it, but I had to think twice
Before I answered

Sometimes I love you and other times I hate you
But I don't think I could find someone to properly replace you
Sometimes I love you and other times I hate you
But there's no-one in the world you could properly replace you

So let me sum it up in a brief explanation
Albeit stop-starting and some hesitation
It's that you're not as kind as you used to be
And the worst part is that you once told me 
That if you changed it would be solely to impress me

The End
