And the last line basically says that : ok, I I'm ready to give you may love, but you don't want it, so i'm done" - more or less.
I don't know if it makes any sense, but that's how I see it.
And btw, I love this song
I love this song too - its one of my 4 favourite songs from Absolution (my favourite Muse album and one of my favourite albums ever).

But that is essentially it - its a classic unrequired love song, but also touched with resignation and knowing that you're unlikely to get the one person you're ready to give all your love too.

It is like a test-run to Undisclosed Desires. But personally I think Endlessly is better. Much better.

Endlessly is great. I'd say it's definitely about being desperately in love with somebody who is completely oblivious, and being too socially awkward to articulate your feelings. I believe that any "cheese" in the lyrics is deliberate, there to reflect that social awkwardness. So though a lot of people seem to think the lyrics are bad, I think their clumsy straightforwardness is actually really clever.

I would say that of Neutron Star Collision but not this song. I don't personally notice any awkwardness or cheesiness in these lyrics, though I do agree that the song appears to be about loving someone without them knowing and not being able to express it.

I don't think it's cheesy either. But I doubt the Rick Astley reference ("I won't give you up; I won't let you down") is accidental.

But that's just my opinion!

I finally started loving this song in the beginning of the month and it is now near the top of my list just a creepy/beautiful love song part of a creepy/beautiful/perfect album named Absolution

I honestly never even noticed that before!

Did Matt secretly Rick Roll all of us with those lyrics?

This song is so under-rated. And I absolutely love this performance of it:

Well there are similar lyrics in other songs as well. I don't think they are that unusual. But who knows?!

I can't listen to this song for a variety of reasons:

a.) Matt rick-rolled everyone.
b.) It sounds like Radiohead.
c.) Lyrics are cheese.
