There's a beautiful sky tonight
When if you were by my side then we could share it but you're gone
So come at me with your moon and burn me in the stars
'Cause nothing matters anymore

If I could only see you now for about an hour
Maybe just a minute
Just to ask
What he's got that I don't have?
Is it his brown eyes?

I know blue eyes get boring but
I'll wear dark glasses all the time
And hey, if you want me to, I'll take a knife to my own bright eyes

If I could only see you now for about an hour
Maybe just a minute
Just to ask
What he's got that I don't have?
Is it his brown eyes?
Well, I'll give you a thousand reasons that tonight you should grant me this one wish

Like the one year of my life that I gave to you and
Now you put me through hell
You break me up, yeah
I should hate you, but I can't replace you in my heart
Why am I so pathetic?
I don't get it why you won't return my calls

Can't you look at me once?
And please if you got a minute
Enjoy this lonely sky with me
It'll swallow us whole if we only let it

If I could only see you now for about an hour
Maybe just a minute
Just to ask
What he's got that I don't have?
Is it his brown eyes?
Well, I'll give you a thousand reasons that tonight you should grant me this one wish

Like the one year of my life that I gave to you and
Now you put me through hell
You break me up, yeah
If this sky's going to eat us then I'd like to be digested into
A million pieces with you
I'd love to be scattered to hell with you, to hell with you
To hell with you

    General Commentthe title of this song is a mystery to me but I feel like its about rejection and all the insecurities that come with being rejected.

    General Commentive never heard this song before... but just by reading the lyrics its bad ass... it seems to me like he likes this girl who likes another guy.. and she wont give him the time of day but he still likes her and would just wanna be with her. kind of an obvious explanation by me.. sorry

    General CommentThe title is kinda strange, but I think it's just saying that he wants to change the way he was or looked and become something better. The song, to me, is about a guy that went out with this girl for a year and then she found someone else. He doesn't know what the other guy has that he doesn't have. He loved her more than anything, there isn't any way he could replace her. So he just doesn't understand why she never loved him like he loved her and how she could so easily replace him. I think towards the end he's saying that he wants her to share his misery that she has put him through.
