Pretending to remember our last December, and everything it was.
Hoping to fix the broken.
Stood by the fireplace. The flames lit up my face.
And everything I said (walking on glass)
I practiced in my head .
And all that I could do (walking on glass)
Was recite my lines to you.
Pretending to recall the way it was last fall, for lack of better days.
I think this time of year, you see everything too clear,
But still can't understand a thing.
And everything I said (walking on glass)
I practiced in my head.
And all that I could do (walking on glass)
Was recite my lines to you.
I can't forget a word you said, and everything it meant.
Instead of you I fear myself.
Guess all that I can do, is take back everything that I'd given to you.
Pretending to remember our last December, and everything it was.
Hoping to fix the broken.
Stood by the fireplace. The flames lit up my face.
And everything I said (walking on glass)
I practiced in my head.
And all that I could do (walking on glass)
Was recite my lines to you.
I can't forget a word you said, and everything it meant.
Instead of you I fear myself. It's all that I can do.
Cause you're uncomfortable with me.
Yeah you're uncomfortable with me. (Just answer the question.)
Why can't I just understand, what's inside you?
Is it just guts and black stuff? I'll find out soon.
Cause anything that you do or say
Couldn't compare to the pain that I felt...
The day that we said that we'd go our seperate ways.

    General CommentI just love the tid bit that they took from the Simpsons "Why can't just understand whats inside you Is it just guts and black stuff?" lol. They took that from when Lisa liked Nelson and she asked what do you feel inside and he is like I dont know guts and blackstuff and a couple of slim jims. lol

    General CommentSurprised not a lot of people have viewed Movielife lyrics, they ARE drive thru band and all.
    Oh well just a bit more, I know it.

    This is a great song. Seeing it live, Vinnie sang right back to me the last line that just gives me chills because I can relate so much to it...
    "Cuz anything that you do or say couldn't compare to the pain that I felt the day that you said that we'd go our seperate ways..."
    I talked to him for a bit after the show, because seriously seeing them and Brand New live helped me so much after my recent break up and he confessed to me that he was getting over a break up as well. Really nice guy, awesome band, awesome live especially, check this song out, and "This Time Next Year", "Hand Grenade", and "Ten Seconds Too Late."
