lights out and my seat back as far as it will go
casting shadows like statues
i'm right outside your window
theres no such thing as second chances
theres no such thing don't bother to explain

you're so beautiful did you hear a word i said
you're so beautiful i guess this is what i get

we trust and believe so easily in words they speak
we seek security in one another but theres no way to cover this
and these tragic nights and afternoons wreak disaster
and i can still feel you as if you were in the room
where does our story end where does it start
i buried you along with my heart

entertain me and tell me "it didn't mean anything"
it's vengous worth my tolerance and i could be careless
but i promise you'll feel everything i know
did you hear a word i said? i know.
i guess this is what i get

    General CommentThis has to be the best Matchbook song. Ever. I think it's about feeling so much for someone and them not even giving a fuck, acting like it's not a big deal.

    General Commentthis is the BEST song by Matchbook. i totally agree with fuckingglow...i think its about him feeling and careing a lot about this person and this person not even caring and thinking that they arent good enough. This song is so fucking sweet...MATCHBOOK U KICK ASS I LOVE U GUYS!

    General Commentyea umm i think your crazy.. and yes that is what the song is about.. but the lyrics are minor to the true meaning of the song.. in the intro the beat takes a dramatic change just like this person just changed all of a sudden for him and it wasnt the same person anymore

    General CommentI think this song is him going crazy about this girl who doesn't care at all, and he's gotten to the point of almost stalking her because he longs for her to feel something for a change.

    General Commenti don't really like matchbook romance. they bother me. they write their songs all the same. in every one of their songs they go back to the chorus after the bridge of their song. they're a pretty bad band.

    General Commentyes it's about someone cheating on him.

    The first verse it's obvious. But then he goes on to sing about trust, and seeking secuirty in another person.

    After they've broken up, he can still feel her in their room even though she's gone.

    Also obvious when he sings
    "I buried you along with my heart"

    and of course
    "entertain me and tell me "it didn't mean anything"

    Blah... great band whatever the case.
