"Storytelling" as written by Gareth Davies, Matthew Davies, Ryan Richards, Kris Roberts, Darran Anthony Smith and Gethin Pearson....
You say it's not going to work out
Why do you have to tell me now
Is there a difference in anything
You've said and done
Or is it just the way we've been pretending

I'm leaving
Do me a favour don't even think of me now
Just when you thought it was over
It had only just begun

I'm not going to let this tear me apart
She's not my only reason
He's not my only reason she said
You're a weakness to me
You should've sent me a note
Or wrote me a letter

I wish it was how we planned
Everything will work out
You said I hated you if only that was true
You should've said that he'd be happy now

    General CommentI just got back from watching these guys play in Wolverhampton, trust me, they cannot play a bad gig.

    Anyway, Matt said "This song is about going out and having fun, in as many weird ways as possible"

    General Commenti think this song is about a relationship that went wrong somehow...it seems to me that the girl in question has broken this guys heart more than once, and he's wondering if there is a "differance in anything she's said and done" because she's acting like she wants him but saying that it wont work...so the guy is now fed up with her and says "im leaving, im leaving..do me a favor and dont even think of me now"...he's also trying to tell her that they could have had a great life together and that "just when you thought it was over, it had only just begun"...he's to make himself see that his life will be better without her, but its hard to see because he still loves her and wishes it was "how they'd planned"..that everything would work out...he's trying to make himself hate her, but he cant bc he loves her so much...well, thats just my take on this song...it really speaks to me bc im kinda going through this now and it sucks..but um yea, FFAF rocks my socks, ciao

    General Commentgreat song and a lot less intensity than others but that doesn't take anything away! its one of their easier songs to interpret...it seems like his gf has fucked round with him a couple of times ("is there a difference in anything you've said and done?") and now she's telling him its over...the chorus is him more or less saying "i'm leaving now-don't think of me cos you've just ruined something good". in the second verse he's denying this is hurting him ("i'm not going to let this tear me apart"). "she's not my only reason" is him saying "i didn't just leave cos of what she did" but this is a denial and cover-up for what he really feels for her...

    General Commentafipunk.. i think your interpretation is pretty damn good. ill add my own little bits... for me it seems that the guy has hooked up with this girl (possibly a friend) who he really likes, for her afterwards to say that a relationship will never work. in the chorus when it say "when you thought it was over it had only just begun" mite be referring to the girl thinking that th guy was over it when really he had only really just started liking her and was in for the long run. i dunno... just some thoughts. this is a quality song just like the rest of them... sums up that kind of situation to a T. can;t wait to seem funeral live... gonna be fucking amazing.
    happy listening, lewi xox
