You know me the best
You know my worst, see me hurt, but you don't judge
That, right there, is the scariest feeling
Opening and closing up again
I've been hurt so I don't trust
Now here we are, staring at the ceiling
I've said those words...

    I think this song is about jacks daughter lavender (lavender has 8 letters) and maybe he is scared to tell the limelights he has a kid.

    I have 2 ideas of what 8 letters mean. The first one, the common answer “I love you” the second one however, is “I am sorry”

    This means I Love You. The guy was hurt before he had this wonderful relationship, so he has trust issues. Even though he loves the girl, he doesn’t want his heart to be broken again, so he’s being cautious.

    If all it is is 8 letters (I Love You)
    Then why is it so hard to say?

    (it is so hard to say I love you because he doesn't know how he truly feels and he doesn't want to get hurt again so he tries to distance himself.)

    This song is about how the boy is in a beautiful relationship, but he has been hurt in the past ("I've said those words before but it was a lie") and has trust issues ("Why do I pull you close and then ask you for space"). This makes it hard for him to tell her how he feels about her (he loves her) because he is scared that the relationship might fall apart. He doesn't really have a good reason that it could go wrong, so he is frustrated that he can't just tell her that he loves her. ("If all it is is 8 Letters, why is it so hard to say?").

    Why is it so hard for them to say I love you?
