  • This song is about someone who likes a girl but doesn't know if she feels the same way about him. He's feeling insecure, but willing to do anything to be with her. >>

  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesFavorite 1st part of the Chorus is Fire;

    "I've waited all my life To cross this line To the only thing that's true"
  • Eugene from Minneapolis, MnThis was the #1 song on my charts of 2005! And then after that I did not hear anymore good songs from Ryan Cabrera sadly. Amazing he is one of those artists that I just ignore.
  • Mike from Santa Barbara, CaWas this written for Ashlee Simpson, whom he was dating at the time?
  • Faith from Perth, Australiai don't disagree but i think the lyrics are really sweet and meaningful. I wouldn't mind if a girl wrote this for me. but i admit it would be kind of freaky.
  • Jack&jill from Went Up The Hill, DenmarkThis song is ACTUALLY about how ryan wants to get his gay lover to take him back. It's really obvious. C'mon, what kind of straight guy actually spends so much time picking out his clothes and doing his hair? I am a female and I don't spend that much time trying to look good. i guess i just come to me natually.
