Trying hard to speak and
Fighting with my weak hand
Driven to distraction
So part of the plan
When something is broken
And you try to fix it
Trying to repair it
Any way you can
I'm diving off the deep end
You become my best friend
I...

    To me this song is talking about a man who finds himself fallen in love with a third person (who he refers as "she" and his best friend) but doesn't want to be a bad guy and still tries to love his old lover (who he refers as "you"), trying to fix it anyway he can, not knowing if he can make it.

    "I dive in at the deep end
    She's become my best friend
    I wanna love you but I don't know if I can
    I know something is broken
    And I'm trying to fix it
    Trying to repair it
    Anyway I can"


    He wanted to tell her ("you") the truth, but was not able to. She felt it as well, because she's also trying to repair it anyway she can.


    "Trying hard to speak and
    Fighting with my weak hand
    Driven to distraction
    It's all part of the plan
    When something is broken
    and you try to fix it
    Trying to repair it anyway you can"

    This song is about being in love with a friend (You become my best friend), but not knowing how it would end (I wanna love you but I don't know if I can/trying hard to speak and fighting with my weak hand). Then the person sees that he/she shouldn't have told this to the other (I know something is broken) and tries to have the friendship back (and I'm trying to fix it, trying to repair it anyway I can).

    to me, its about being in love (I wanna love you but I don't know if I can)with a childhood friend and still being in love with them in the future (she become my best friend).the childhood friends arent in contact anymore but one of the two want to meet up and tell the other how he or she feels. the one in love thinks up the best possible way things could go (you and me are floating on a tidal wave, together), which is discovering the other person had the same feelings and they get together. so they go out on a limb and tells the person that they love them (I, dive in at the deep end) but in reality, the person that is in love finds out that they dont have the same feeling (Trying hard to speak and fighting with my weak hand). then he/she tries to fix the hole in their heart (I know something is broken and I'm trying to fix it, trying to repair it, any way, I can)
